Paul received 15 percent of the vote, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 13 percent. Conservative speaker and renowned neurosurgeon Ben Carson, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker all received 11 percent in the first-ever Northeast Republican Presidential Opinion Survey.

eric; your great leader was told in no uncertain terms by A. stevenson that unless he escalated the war in Vietnam he didn't stand a chance at remaining in the whitehouse. He thought his grand plan (can't keep em on the plantation, we'll keep em in the projects) was woth it . 250,000 american's and several million southeast asian's might disagree.
