GOP Registration Is Up.....I Wonder Why?

According to respected pollster Scott Rasmussen, GOP registration is up over two points in the last few months from last year. My hunch is that a lot of people have been switching from Decline To State/Independent & Democrat to Republican so they can vote for Ron Paul in states with closed GOP primaries. This is why the GOP establishment should embrace the message of Ron Paul. He's bringing lots of new people to the party and getting disaffected Republicans to switch back after they got so disgusted they switched to Independent in the last few years.

They're not switching back because of what George W Bush and the Congress have been doing. If it weren't for Ron, we might be down another couple of points right now going into these primaries.

    Not me. There is not a single Republican candidate that can get
    me to re-register back to GOP.
    I am very happy as Decline To State,
    and probably will be that way until

    BTW. Congrats to Dr. Paul with the
    10% in Iowa. Fox News really looks
    stupid now. Are they letting him back in the debate?

    I really don't care about Fox News anymore. I used to defend them in the past, but they have gone off the deep end by excluding Ron Paul from their GOP NH Forum this weekend. They should be excluding Giuliani if anyone. He only got 3%of the vote in Iowa.
