The Paulistas are salivating over some recent wins and high finishes in recent straw polls. They’re taking these results as sure signs the revolution has been spammed and online harassed in to existence. The media is even feeding their hysteria, by thinking these wins actually mean something.
He lost to Romney by one vote in the Southern Republican Leadership Conference’s straw poll. It should be noted that Romney didn’t even show up.
Then of course we all remember his epic win at the 2010 CPAC straw poll here.
So are these wins any indicator of where the Conservative electorate is going to vote, or did the Paulistas find a way to bus in more supporters to just give us the illusion the masses will flock to him in 2012?
I propose that based on past straw poll results, this is once again the Paulistas flooding a poll to create an illusion that Paul has a massive ground swell of support, he indeed doesn’t have.
In this Foxnews text in poll for the South Carolina debate in 07, Paul finished second to Romney. A sure sign of his popularity to come? Let’s just say he didn’t even win one primary, even after a blimp and all those millions raised.
Ron Paul won this January 11th, 2008, Foxnews text in poll for a debate. He won it big time. Did this end up reflecting in reality? Nope!
Just for giggles, this article rips on Fox for saying his followers skewed the Fox text poll, acting as if the poll represented reality.
Ron Paul won this Nevada straw poll in October of 2007. Did that indicate anything other than the fact his followers could swarm a poll?
Ron Paul won this November 2007 straw poll in New York. Reflective of voter reality or reflective of his followers ability to swarm a poll to create the false illusion there is a ground swell of support? I report, you decide.
Ron Paul won this 2007 straw poll in Virginia. Are we seeing a pattern here?
October 13th, 2007, Ron Paul wins Conservative Leadership Conference straw poll. Do I need to keep asking the same redundant question?
One more, in August 2007, they swarmed this poll in Alabama for the win.
Listen folks, in the 08 campaign the Paul campaign was built on creating the illusion of a groundswell, that obviously didn’t translate in to reality. They swarmed text polls, online polls and real life straw polls, sent in million dollar money bombs and even got a blimp. When it was all said and done, it was seen for the smoke and mirrors show, most of us sane people knew it was.
His recent straw poll wins are just a rehashing of what happened in 2008. Case closed.
