Texas Congressman Ron Paul would win a presidential race against incumbent Barack Obama, according to a tracking poll released Monday by Rasmussen Reports.
According to polling figures published Monday by Rasmussen, a hypothetical two-person contest between President Obama and Republican Party hopeful Ron Paul would yield a victory for the Texas congressman. The statistics released by the group this week put Paul as the favorite over the current commander in chief by two percentage points, a 43-to-41 percent win, reports the agency.
Although Representative Paul has placed close to passing Obama in past polls, this marks the first time in a Rasmussen report that the congressman has statistically proven himself as the winner when pitted right against the president. Recent polling from Rasmussen also suggests that the only other candidate that could be considered the victor in a make-believe match-up with Obama right now would be former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who also won in a recent poll by a two percentage point margin. Rasmussen has put Obama as the victor in a race against only Romney according to all other reports released since 2012 began.
