According to a Moore Information survey Ron Paul may have picked up at least 74 percent of the vote in the primary contest. Seventy-nine percent of those questioned said they had a favorable impression of Paul while eighty-four percent said they approved of his job performance.
“I personally think he’ll win that primary with 60-plus percent of the vote, even with three opponents, so I find it kind of interesting,” said Mary Anne Wyatt, chairwoman of the Victoria County Republican Party. “There’s no question that Rep. Paul is very popular in his district and has been for some time. It hasn’t been an enigma—it’s been a fact.”
Graney, an opponent of Paul’s who admitted to spending $80,000 on his campaign said:
“I don’t think he views any of us as a threat.”
