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.
I don’t care how they spin it, the revolution is officially over.
For a Libertarian to finish in fifth, as of now, in New Hampshire, well that’s a big indicator.
Him finishing fifth in Libertarian, live free or die, New Hampshire, is like going to an Oakland Raiders home game and only finding five fans in Raiders Jerseys.
If there was a place the revolution could break out, this is it! But it wasn’t it.
I’m done doing anything with this site. What has been said about Ron Paul is all that can be said.
It’s proven that him and his followers are officially irrelevant to this political process.
They can gather a loud, large crowd online and on street corners, but they can’t gather enough real life votes to really matter.
Here are my predictions for New Hampshire tonight.
Paul finishes fourth. Despite finishing fourth in a state known for it’s “libertarianness”, Paul supporters will claim a victory because they finished in front of some big named candidate.
They’ll tout a 10%ish vote count and say this is also a victory. This will be full proof the revolution has hit America.
A day or two down the road some conspiracy theory will be released that shows Paul really won or finished better than before.
The first place to vote in the NH primary has rejected Ron Paul No votes at all. I’m sure we’ll hear some conspiracy theories in a few days.
Thank you Iowa indpendents for selecting Barack Obama and John Mccain. I sense a trend going on here. The ronvolution is over, the independent vote in New Hampshire will go to Obama and Mccain. But the Ronbots are having fun deluding themselves.
The Paulites have been passing around this “positive bulletin” around myspace. Of course it is filled with kool-aid delusions and glaring double standards.
(1) Contrary to what some here believe, we did significantly outperform our polls, just as we had been saying we would do all along.
According to Real Clear Politics, we were polling at 7.3% in the last five polls taken before the caucus (on average) yet, as of writing this, we are at 9.8%,
Significantly outperforming? I don’t think three points is significant. It’s three points. Huckabee must be burning the walls down because he won by over eight points and the polls projected him behind or only up two points at the most.
Look at the double standard here as they brag about “beating” Giuliani.
(3) We destroyed former front-runner Rudy Giuliani—absolutely destroyed him with almost triple his vote total—and don’t be fooled—Rudy didn’t compete here because he couldn’t compete not because he didn’t want to.
(2) Despite the fact that we put very little effort into Iowa until very late in the game and despite the fact that Ron Paul spent less time in Iowa than any other candidate (in a state where in-person campaigning is essential) and despite our shabby treatment by the mainstream media we still were just 3 points out of third place.
Say huh? Ok, they love touting how they beat Giuliani, and they won’t admit his poor performance came because he didn’t show up in Iowa. That is not considered a factor at all in explaining why Rudy did so bad. Yet that is a factor to consider when wondering why Paul did so bad!?
Good news my friends, The Ronvolution is over. They’ll spin this as a victory even after he admits his defeat.
