Ron Paul Tied With Obama, 50/50?

I mentioned this poll earlier but Instapundit noted the Paul/Obama 50/50 split.

The poll analysis indicates that several Republican candidates suffer merely from a lack of name recognition. Scanning down the list, it appears that many of the names people tend to know wind up beating Obama -- Romney and Giuliani, for example, and even Ron Paul manages a tie.

People with higher name recognition (50% or higher) who don't win against Obama include, yes, Palin and Bachmann, and also Gingrich.

I'm thinking that this reinforces my belief that people do want to turn Obama out of office, and several people could win -- so long as the public is reasonably comfortable with them.

(Perry loses to Obama in this poll, but the same margins Palin and Bachmann do, but his name recognition is a mere 30%.)

Now how did Ron Paul manage a 50/50 split in this poll? Isn't he a "threatening" Republican with no executive experience?

Not really sure. Could just be that he's always running, so the public is comfortable with the idea of Ron Paul.
