Ron Paul has thousands of netroots activists, that's for sure. Today, check out the Alexa ratings, where his website traffic has surpassed both Obama and Clinton, for the most traffic (that Clinton pulled ahead of Obama is also of note, as is that Obama's share of traffic has been steadily falling since his Feb announcement):
Over on YouTube, as of 9:59 a.m. ET today, Congressman Ron Paul has passed everyone, and now has the most YouTube subscribers of all presidential candidates -- Republican and Democratic.
Ron Paul - 5,679 Barack Obama - 5,678 Hillary Clinton - 2,998 John Edwards - 2,750 Mitt Romney - 1,977The third Republican debate is June 5th on the Saint Anselm College campus in Manchester, NH. CNN is hosting it, with Wolf Blitzer and WMUR & Union Leader moderators. If Ron Paul is going to gain traction anywhere aside from the internet, it's gonna be in New Hampshire, where there's a strong independent vote ticked off about the war that leans Republican, a very strong libertarian "live free" mentality that abhors taxes, and that he is also 100% pro-life makes him acceptable to the theocons as well.
