“Some are demonstrating, because they’re scared to death they won’t get their handouts,” Paul said yesterday. “And the other half are demonstrating, because they’re sick and tired of paying for it. I’m on the side of sick and tired of paying for it.”
Paul’s popularity has risen since 2008 largely because of the Tea Party. He doesn’t lead in polling in any state, but he is routinely in the top three in states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
