COMMENTARY | Ron Paul is a fighter. The Texas congressman has battled into a four-way statistical first place tie for the GOP nomination among likely Iowa voters, CBS reported. He shares the distinction with Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.
Technically, Paul came in fourth. But with the margin of error, all four candidates are Iowa front-runners. That's an impressive turnaround for Paul and his followers. His message isn't always standard Republican fare -- at times alternating between refreshing and odd. But Paul knows government and he understands the voters.
Whatever policy messages the eventual nominees will decide to tout on the campaign trail, Americans are overwhelmingly concerned about jobs and the economy. Paul understands that. His message is a bit different than the other candidates and, whether voters agree or not, it is worth giving it a look.
It wouldn't surprise me to see Paul win the Iowa caucuses.
