Bizarre Iowa Poll Finds Tim Tebow Haters Love Ron Paul

I'm not sure what to make of this. I guess one's love of Tebow is a proxy measure of one's religiosity--at least a certain brand of it--but who thinks up these questions?

Among those polled in Iowa who view Tim Tebow unfavorably, Paul is the first choice of 38% of them!  Among those who view Tebow favorably, however, Gingrich is ahead with 29%.  (Paul is second among this group with 25%)  

This tidbit comes to us via Matthew Dickinson, a professor of political science at Middlebury College. He concludes:

To me, that is as clear a sign as any that Paul cannot win the Republican nomination.  Because among Republicans, if you don’t like Tim Tebow, you don’t like Mom, Apple Pie and, uh, er…..America. 

Yes, we live in a very strange country.
