Ron Paul Dominates Non-partisan Straw Poll
TransWorldNews ^ | 8/27/2007 | staff

Posted on 08/27/2007 12:59:56 PM PDT by rface

Washington D.C. 8/27/2007 5:20 PM GMT (FINDITT - Top Story)

USAElectionPolls.com has an audience of about 67,000 visitors per month according to the latest statistics by Quantcast -- making it the most visited polling website with the exception of RealClearPolitics. The web site has been having an online straw poll for three days on voters' preference for the 2008 election; both Democrats and Republicans are listed.

Ron Paul is leading the group of almost 20 candidates with 51%. Even more impressive is that he currently has 1744 votes while the second place candidate Dennis Kucinich has 613 votes -- 18%. Ron Paul leads the next closest Republican competitor in the online poll 51% to 3%.

Ordinarily, very little can be made of such results. They could be flukes. The web site's target audience could be Ron Paul, etc. But USAElectionPolls.com gets an immense amount of traffic all across the United States and it is a non-partisan website that talks about all of the candidates.

The poll is still open and can be found on the front page.

.

Rudy Giuliani........2%......(67)

Fred Thompson .......1%......(47)

Mitt Romney..........3%.......(119)

John McCain..........0%.......(14)

Newt Gingrich........0%.......(17)

Soooo many FReepers have stated that the GOP candidate has to be a true conservative in order to win in '08.

I agree wholeheartedly!

This poll proves the point that is so forcefully made here.

If a Conservative like Ron Paul is not the GOP candidate, then Hillary deserves to win.

We don't need some empty suit!!! (Fred Thompson)

We don't need a Baby Killer! (Rudy Giuliani)

We don't need some cult religious kook! (you-know-who!)

We need a Tall, Strong, Handsome, Muscle Bound Texan to Kick Hillary's Ass!

If we don't get Ron Paul to represent the Conservatives in the White House - then it might as well be Hillary!

And yet he can’t get real people who are old enough to vote and registered Republicans to vote for him in the primaries.

Finishing in 2nd, with 666 votes, Dennis Kucinich. Appropriate on so many levels...

This site is analogous to the American Idol site, “votefortheworst.com”. Ron Paul’s numbers come from people voting for the worst as a joke.

"The web site has been having an online straw poll..."

They only reasonable explanation for Ron Paul's "amazing" poll numbers is that his supporters use spambots. Only a total idiot would take as representative a poll that shows Paul with 2022 votes and Giuliani and Thompson with a combined total of 114.

No, this means nothing! Only the all-in-the-name early mainstream media opinion polls count! Straw polls mean nothing! Oh except that one Ron Paul lost....um...the Iowa straw poll I think it was. But all other straw polls (at least the ones Ron Paul won) are meaningless!

I don’t think its a fluke. Its yet another example of how much better organized online Ron Paul supporters are than those of the other Republican candidates.

Ron Paul is not my choice for President but it is clear the Republican party needs to keep Ron Paul supporters around for the general.

I’m not trying to be insulting but there is some parallel with Dean. I don’t know what Paul will want if he is not the nominee to put his full effort into the general but Republicans ought to start thinking about what they are willing to pay.

Surprise, surprise.

This isn’t even a straw poll. A straw poll requires you to actually show up at a polling place.

This is an ONLINE POLL! Ron Paul’s spam supporters have spammed virtually every online poll on the planet in favor of this guy.

On a side note, though... I almost feel sorry for Rep. Paul. His campaign has been hijacked by crazies and loons. Of course, by going on shows like Alex Jones, he brought it on himself.

WTF is the “TransWorldNews”? Sounds like media for cross-dressers...

And so the Paulistinians come to us with another mighty Internet poll, where Doc Ron smashes the competition.

Funny how he can’t get any more than 2% in a real poll, eh?

These Paulistinian headlines are starting to sound like 1950’s B movies...

“Ron Paul Conquers The World!”
“The Seven Labors of Ron Paul!”
“Ron Paul vs. Mothra”

He’s got the French vote all sewed up.

When you show the results numerically, this tells me all I want to know about Ron Paul and who he seems to be attracting:

Ron Paul.............52%.......(2022)
Dennis Kucinich........17%........(666)
Rudy Giuliani........2%......(67)
Barack Obama..........10%.......(381)
Hillary Clinton........5%........(180)
Mitt Romney..........3%.......(119)
John Edwards...........3%........(97)
Al Gore.................2%..........(87)
Fred Thompson .......1%......(47)
Mike Huckabee........1%.......(46)
Bill Richardson........1%.........(30)
Joe Biden..............1%..........(27)
Mike Gravel............1%..........(23)
Newt Gingrich........0%.......(17)
John McCain..........0%.......(14)
Tom Tancredo.........0%.........(12)
Duncan Hunter.........0%........(8)
Chris Dodd.............0%..........(6)
Sam Brownback.........0%........(5)

And the Paulista continue to tout his Conservative credentials and insist he's the Conservative's only hope.

BWAHAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAA!

True Conservative? True fraud more like it. Sorry but a guy who runs as a “limited Govt Conservative” then turns around and defends his millions in mis-appropriated earmarks as “a necessary tool for Congress” is a fraud, not a Conservative.

It looks like a poll of who can wave the white flag of surrender the highest. The two front runners are the ones who want the terrorists to win the most. The also rans are the ones who want America to win. In this trumped up poll anyway.
