In the last five days alone, Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign has raised an "off-the-chart" sum of money totaling more than $2.5 million. In his latest “money bomb” fundraiser, the GOP contender has garnered some 44,000 donations across 50 states thus far, and hopes to add another half-million dollars before the event's conclusion. What is most interesting, perhaps, is that multiple small contributions comprise Paul's growing stack of millions.

Speaking with Fox News' Neil Cavuto on Tuesday, Paul said he’s very pleased with the fundraising outcome so far: “We still know we have a ways to go because sometimes we don’t get on the headline news.”

Paul also spoke about polls, explaining that while he never quite surges, his numbers continue a steady climb upward. Paul stated, “We are very steady,” he said, “[and] we haven’t lost ground, but we do need to prove ourselves. And that’s why we are working very hard in the early stages.”
