It's not really a disparity. These online polls are a joke. We saw this in the last election where every time there was a poll anywhere the clarion
call to go vote in it was sounded and the Paulistas ran over to punch in their vote. There's a reason these polls usually state "This is not a
scientific poll." If someone conducts a statistically valid truly randomized poll, then fine. Let's talk about it. But this isn't it and
complaining about it makes people look like fools.
I was a delegate at my state's Republican convention last time where the Paulistas were out in force. What really shocked me was the extent to which
they went to try to take over the convention. On a strict hand-count basis Paul simply did not have the support, but the Paulistas tried every trick
in the book to disrupt the convention, something they did in many states that year. They were completely disruptive. They used procedural tricks. They
harrassed the podium when anyone else was talking. It was disgusting. Paul lost a lot of sympathy just because his supporters used tactics like these.
They didn't really care about democracy; they just wanted Paul in, period. There's really no difference between Paul's supporters tactics and those
of the Leftists. It's all from the same Allinsky playbook.
There is no denying that Paul's supporters are enthusiastic, but they make him look like a puffer fish, blown way out of proportion in terms of his
real support. Paul bombed out last time and he will bomb out this time. He serves as a distraction.
The fact is, Paul's supporters are his own worst enemy. If they acted civilized, he'd get more attention.
