Skip to comments.NEW GALLUP POLL: NUTJOB RON PAUL ONLY GETS 7% OF THE TEA PARTY VOTE (Newt @47%)

In other words, 93% of tea party members wisely reject this anti semitic loser as a presidential candidate.

In fact, Tea Party Fort Lauderdale, Americas longest running tea party, recently held a straw poll for its members asking for our choice of candidate as POTUS, and also the man or woman we thought would make the worst president. And unlike the usual straw polls that the delusional paulbots spam up, this poll was only open to actual group members.
And our straw poll numbers validated the Gallup poll numbers. Ron Paul finished with Jon Huntsman as THE ONLY TWO PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES to pull in less than 5% support from our group. However, the left wing cancer that Paul spreads was not appreciated by our conservative members as career politican Paul overwhelmingly won as the candidate we least wanted to see as president, winning that dubious honor by a huge margin over our second place loser(Huntsman).

These numbers also fall in line with Wrong Pauls performance in the last presidential elections. As I recall, he won a bunch of straw and internet polls. And his delusional paulbot followers claimed this represented reality. Of course, us sane people knew that he had no real life political support. And that was proven in the 2008 when the nutjob only got 5% of the primary vote. That means 19 OUT OF 20 REPUBLICAN PRIMARY VOTERS REJECTED HIM AS A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE LAST ELECTION!!!
And of course his followers are the dirtbags of society. Conspiracy loons, anti war leftists, and anti semites. That is why the Republican Jewish Coalition banned him and his paulbots from the presidential debate they moderated. And that is why most sites, including this one, have policies banning paulbots. I say they are a cancer to the conservative movement and we should treat them like lepers and shun them.
No surprise there. The TEA Party isn’t exclusively focused on ONLY fiscal issues. There’s also a desire to have a strong America that can project its power worldwide. That’s where it departs from Wrong Paul.
Even on fiscal issues, most know Paul doesn’t have the capability to do more than talk. He has shown that this year when given the perfect opportunity to do something in his role of the chairman of the committee on monetary policy and he has done jack and squat.
No fan of Paul but the top two tells me that the tea party has been fully co-opted into the GOP.
I think it has more to do with that 93% actually being sane.
It is about victory without going too far over the deep end at this point.
This is why I’ve been saying all along that a Rupaul independent candidacy poses little or no threat to us. It is Trump we need to worry about.
Whatever it takes to convince yourself I guess but it won’t change the reality.
Instead, he should be called a traitor, for his remarks on the Bush folks after 911.
And now these same TEA Party members are throwing their support towards someone who is promoting his own ideas for federal involvement in our health insurance market? I don't believe it.
If TEA Party members opposed ObamaCare, then they should be opposing GingrichCare as well.
I don't know if a Republican nominee can win solely based upon being an opponent to Obama. It seems to me that our nominee will have to generate support of his own, regardless of who his opponent is.
Still undecided, I can't help but feel that Gingrich's support is fairly shallow (at this point), and that could change. It's up to him to continue to try to earn my support.
The ONLY balanced budget in our lifetime FOUR tIMES!
The only entitlement reform In owr lifetime.
The return of the Conservative majority in over 40 years.
That’s what T.P.errs are voting for.
The last time the budget was balanced was in 1969. Did Newt do that? If Newt is our candidate, then come October, all the TEA Party folks will get that same sinking feeling they got four years prior when John McCain was dropping like a stone. We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get an actual conservative in office. Let’s not throw that away by nominating ‘government-is-the-answer’ Gingrich.
Assuming that Gingrich isn’t a total repudiation of the tea party, the fact that Romney is supposedly our second choice should raise some serious questions about this poll in itself.
This sums it up pretty nicely. Ron Paul's positions include:
You see more Ron Paul signs at OWS & Code Pink rallys than at Tea Party rallys.
Ron Paul is a capital-L libertarian. The vast majority of Tea Partiers are Reagan-conservatives.
It would behove us to make a list of differences between capital-L Libertarians and Reagan-conservatives.
Now is not the time for a Libertarian like Ron Paul—He’s in the wrong Party—his act may play well in parts of Texas but it will not work nationally. Only a handful of the GOP would back him.
I’m thinking more along the lines of nutjob traitor. :)
