First off, let me explain myself before people come in screaming "its not fair that Ron Paul's polls get taken down every second."
Up until recently, a majority of the voting population was elderly people. When i mean majority, i mean like almost everyone. It was basically old
white people republicans VS whoever was pissed off at the last republican (aka democrat). That was just the normal way our politics works. Even a lot
of my professors in college would always mention how stupid it was that "liberal activists" and "old people" basically controlled our political
Now we have a giant grass roots movement, mostly of younger people, voting for Ron Paul. I myself do not pick sides, but i agree with him on many
issues, and looking at the current landscape i myself would probably vote for him. However, these fox news polls are very in-accurate. Even though I
think Hannity, and especially Frank Fraud Lunts, are total liars and full of themselves, i believe an online poll only gathers information from a
certain audience. The audience watching with internet access AND the means to actually go in and vote for him on an internet poll are the ones with
the louder voice here. A lot of the older people who wouldn't vote for Ron Paul either don't know how to use these online polls or just don't care
enough to vote online. They probably wont even vote in the straw poll. There's a good chance they will only come out when people start actually
So in essence, these numbers are meaningless. But it is wrong for Fox News not to interview and deny speaking time from Ron Paul. Although i feel that
he was treated more fairly in this last debate than any other debate, so for once i am not "completely"' pissed off at Faux News.
But we have plenty of other things to be pissed off about:
Frank Lunts: Uses the same people in all of his "what did you think" segments. As if they are real people... he just pays a bunch of people to say
what he wants them to and bag on Ron Paul or whoever. Hes Hannities b****.
They will air a video of Ron Paul saying something really powerful and emotional, only to then talk about someone completely different, as if they had
said it or to just change the subject.
One of Fox News respondents got fired for telling the truth about Ron Paul(how he was doing well and had huge turnouts).
Media too scared to interview him. He makes good points, and pundits are either scared of their higher ups or scared of having their own views
completely murdered on the spot.
