Ron Paul’s Web Site Tops In GOP Field
He went from fifth to first, and is leading the field by a larger margin on the GOP side than Hillary is on the Dem side.
In a custom report created for ClickZ News, Hitwise measured traffic market share of the candidate sites. The measurement firm found traffic to Democratic candidate sites was top heavy, favoring Clinton’s, Obama’s and Edwards’s sites. HillaryClinton.com garnered nearly a third of visits among Democratic candidate sites in May. BarackObama.com attracted almost 28 percent, and JohnEdwards.com drew 23 percent of visitors to Dem campaign sites last month.
Visits to Republican candidate sites were spread a bit more evenly among the sites tracked. RonPaul2008.com drew a 27 percent share of visitors to Republican candidate sites in May. MittRomney.com attracted almost 21 percent of visits last month, while JohnMccain.com brought in almost 13 percent.
Hitwise defines market share of visits within a site category as the percentage of traffic to a particular site based on its sample of 10 million U.S. Web users.
Republicans, get ready for a shock when the fundraising numbers come out.
And yet another sign that the GOP is afraid of Paul…they’re excluding him from events…
DES MOINES, Iowa – Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will add party crashing to his campaign tactics this weekend.
The Texas congressman, who has struggled to top 1 percent in national polls, wasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t invited to a forum of presidential candidates Saturday in Des Moines. The gathering is sponsored by the Iowa Christian Alliance and the watchdog group Iowans for Tax Relief.
Instead of grumbling, PaulÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s campaign decided to hold its own party _ in the same hall as the forum. TheyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re calling it a celebration of life and liberty.
Big tent, eh?
