So the Paulistas are gloating over the latest poll win by Ron Paul. This time he apparently won a phone poll in the state of Texas. Let’s do a breakdown and find the truth here. I’ll post my summary first, then the details and evidence.
Azimuth Research group did a poll of 882 high active GOP voters in Texas. They report Ron Paul won the poll with 22%. The major problem is that Azimuth Research group is an unestablished, non-credible research organization who’s earliest ‘research’ goes back to April of 2011. Actually it’s questionable if it goes back even that far. That data looks to be manufactured to lend credibility to their group and probably to the supposed poll Ron Paul won.
Ron Paul still hasn’t won an actual presidential primary. Ron Paul still hasn’t won a presidential poll conducted by an established and credible polling organization. Ron Paul can only win in straw polls, online polls and call in polls. Ron Paul has yet to penetrate anything in reality. Ironic considering he’s a vagina doctor.
Details are below.
First you’re most likely to see a link to this page from the Paulistas. http://www.azimuthpolls.com/?p=11 . It’s dated July 06, 2011. Keep this in mind, because it’s VERY IMPORTANT. Here’s a picture. You’ll see why in a second here.
It reports that Azimuth Research Group did a poll of 882 highly active Texas GOP voters, and Ron Paul won the poll with 22%.
Second, who is the Azimuth Research Group?
They appear to be a very, very new ‘research group. Their website is basically a blog, who’s monthly archives go back to April 2011. Check out the screen shot.
Their first post on their site is from, April 27th, 2011 and it’s about legalizing gambling in Texas. You can see the link here.
Here’s a screen shot of the post. It will fit in nicely with point three. Stick with me here.
Third, now this is where it gets interesting. Look at the URL’s for the given posts above. Notice that the URL for the post said to have been made April 27th, ends with p=28, yet the one for July 6th, ends in p=11. It’s right up there in the screenshots and links. But why is this important? Stick with me.
So here is why all this stuff is so important. Remember the URL endings from above? The April 27th entry ended in p=28 and the July 6th one declaring his poll win ended in p=11. Wordpress post URLs, are made based on the order in which a post was made. So a post truly made on April 27th, shouldn’t be a number larger than 11! The number 28 indicates that post was made after the July 6th post.
So why is this important? Well it appears someone is trying to make that research group look legit. It looks like they wanted to make it look like there was a history of research and polls from the group. So they made a post and dated it April 27th. Luckily WordPress is smart enough to see the deceit and shows us the post was actually made AFTER their July 6th post, declaring Ron Paul the winner of a real Texas poll.
Finally, let me wrap this thing up here by showing further the newness of this ‘research group’.
They actually have a Facebook page!
In conclusion, Ron Paul won a poll conducted by a deceitful and new polling organization. Ron Paul still only wins straw polls, online polls and now deceitful polls conducted by new start up ‘research’ organizations.
Ron Paul still hasn’t won an actual presidential primary. Ron Paul still hasn’t won a presidential poll conducted by an established and credible polling organization.
It’s no wonder his supporters are always appealing to things that are fake. Their guy can only win in the realm of the fake, imaginary and fictional. He has yet to penetrate that thing called reality. Ironic considering he’s a vagina doctor.
