Ron Paul may be dead-last among the major GOP candidates in the all-important delegate count, but he's winning the Republican race in at least one place: Web traffic. RonPaul2012.com, the official website of candidate Ron Paul, had 830,000 visitors during the month of January, edging MittRomney.com by 57,000, RickSantorum.com by 134,000, and Newt.org by 221,000, according to Nielsen findings released today. Not that we should be surprised given Ron Paul's vocal (though perhaps small) group of supporters.
But if nominee-in-waiting Mitt Romney should be threatened by anybody, it's not Paul. Barack Obama's campaign website garnered a whopping 4.2 million eyeballs that month.
