Paul gets 1.8%. Source is here.
Just yesterday, in the latest of MANY threads about Ron Paul winning straw
ths "disgust" at manipulating the polls was palpable because, you know, Ron Paul always wins the straw polls.
He didn't win Florida and he didn't win this one. It will be interesting to see how tha Paulistas spin this one. They have consistently said that Paul
"always wins" the straw polls and the MSM media is intentionally misleading people about how popular Paul "really is." Yet here we have a couple of
major straw polls (an oxymoron, in my opinion) that show Cain TROUNCING Paul and using him to wipe up the floor.
Yet there is no doubt that Cain winning Florida's entry helped give him some name recognition. And now this.
The fact is that straw polls give a completely false indication of the popularity of a candidate. All the national scientific polls are putting Paul
and Cain in a dead with about 9% each.
Paul supporters who believe Paul is ahead based on straw polls are delusional.
Cain supporters who believe Cain is ahead based on straw polls are delusional.
Straw polls, by and large, are delusional. They are all biased no matter who they "support."
The difference here is that I've never heard a Cain supporter state that they really believe Cain is at 77% or that the MSM is responsible for
ignoring him. But, then, they are grownups and Paul supporters aren't.
Dream on, Ron Paul. And Ron Paul supporters, one of these days, are going to wake up and realize they need to change their sheets.
