Donald Trump and Ron Paul Feud Over Who Is Less Electable (VIDEO)

Speaking at The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last week, Donald Trump, who is considering a run for president as a Republican, bluntly declared that Ron Paul has "zero chance of getting elected" president. Paul ultimately won CPAC's straw poll on who should be the GOP nominee in 2012.

Paul stopped by 'Morning Joe' (weekdays, 6 AM on MSNBC) where Joe Scarborough asked the libertarian congressman if he thinks he can be elected president.

"You always take that risk when you put your name on the ballot," Paul quipped, eliciting laughter. Then he pointed out that despite his strident and often iconoclastic views he has been elected to congress 11 times.

As for Trump calling him out?

"Somebody said 'how many times has Donald Trump been elected?' Paul continued. "Does he really have the right to go and criticize others (by) saying they're unelectable?"

Smart money would say that neither Paul nor Trump would have any chance of being elected president. However, any feud that could potentially pit Donald Trump's runaway ego against Ron Paul's fervent fan base is only to be encouraged.
