Ron Paul is "actually in a very good position right now," Zogby Director of Communications and Top Analyst Fritz Wenzel said in relation to prospects for Paul's dark horse campaign.
"He's right on schedule," Wenzel said in an interview with Alex Jones. "He's making all the right moves, going in the right direction...at a time when other candidates are not moving."
Wenzel based his analysis on recent nationwide polls that show Ron Paul could win in New Hampshire and find his support 'intensifying' with room to gain. A new Zogby poll commissioned by Jones Productions found Ron Paul the GOP winner in a 'blind' poll that included Democrats, Republicans and Independents nationwide.
"Here's why his timing is almost perfect. He's moving up...but it's not so early that he's going to get a big backlash," Wenzel said.
"6 weeks to 8 weeks out before an election is about the time if you're going to make a big move from the back to the front-- that's when you want to make it."
While Wenzel doesn't think Ron Paul has the nomination at this point, he hardly ruled it out, citing a number of factors working in his favor.
"He has the momentum and a lot of money in his pocket," Wenzel said, adding that he would be a 'stronger candidate' than any of the other three GOP contenders among Democrat voters.
Further, Ron Paul may be underestimated. He is "long since past John McCain" yet McCain is still referred to as a top tier candidate while Paul usually is not.
Wenzel cites anti-war sentiment and dissatisfaction with Congress as clear signs of a "tremendous vote of no confidence." Voters "just do not see government as an agent of positive change," Wenzel suggests, based on poll data that includes an 11% approval rating amongst both parties in Congress.
People desire a 'competent manager' according to the Zogby spokesperson. "People remember and admire" Reagan's consistency and 'straight talk,' Wenzel told Alex Jones in a Tuesday interview. Today, the public believes that the system is 'unwilling to listen' and 'unable to fix major problems' according to Wenzel.
Wenzel cites the wide margins of undecided voters in major polls-- often hovering around 20%-- as an indicator that many people feel disenfranchised and the GOP primary is anything but decided.
