Fantasy for Paulbots: Ron Paul wins the CPAC straw poll and they say he can win.

Reality for Paulbots: Ron Paul will consistently carry only 3-4% of the GOP primary vote and drop out early.

To paraphrase Donald Trump:

'No offense to you Paulbots, but Ron Paul doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning!'

Are we really going to be subjected to all these straw polls with Ron Paul again?

Forget GOProud and anything else. This result alone proves the worthless nature of CPAC period.

If Paul would happen to win against all odds he would be 77 1/2 years old the day he took office. It’s time for him to face the music - he’s too damn old.

I am a Ron Paul supporter but I completely agree with your statement. He is better served in Congress (Speaker of the House maybe) or a cabinet position.

Rand on the other hand, could make some noise in the future.

I believe Ron Paul won it in 2007 as well and it did not make any difference whatsoever.

This is an event to ignore.

There is a reason they call them "straw" polls.

It's because they mean as much as pile of straw.

Well, I don't think 77 is too old today...People are living much longer nowadays.

That being said, I would guess this guy is in much better health than many others...Cheney comes to mind.

Correct, Ron Paul has less chance of winning in general election than I have of beating Tiger Woods in a golf match.

But there are lots of bots around. There are Hoffmanbots,
Sharronbots, Christinebots, etc. Obviously some people care
more about nominating their sure to lose choice over someone
who can actually win against a democrat.

All I needed to see was the people at CPAC boo Dick Cheney to know what kind of people those attending CPAC really are. This poll is meaningless because CPAC is meaningless

Agree, Sarah. Seems to me a number of CPAC attendees are little more than very far right zealots.

Boy this straw poll scam by Ron Paul and these leftists that sneak into every Conservative event by using this old fool Paul to cause havoc has gotten old
At every GOP event , Ron Paul pays these left wing college students to stuff these straw poll ballots and come to this event to disrupt it .

Now we know why Palin avoids this pathetic poorly run event.

Here are some older links to articles about Grover Norquist, one of the leaders of C-PAC. The links pretty much tell you all you need to know. I just can't believe that C-PAC had such a good year, two years ago, with Rush speaking. Norquist’s Muslim Proteges C-Pac shills for Islamic Terrorist What say you now, Grover Norquist? A Troubling Influence Read those articles and if you still have any questions about C-PAC, let me know. I can get plenty more of those articles.

Dont play coy with me .
Ron Paul buses these college students and pays for everything. The local college leftists attend that stupid event since it free and they can disrupt the event and stuff the ballot box for Paul to get their Obama media fellow travelers and Drudge report to report this sorry poll as something important.
Ron Paul pulled there scam for the last four years.
NRO reported on it last year. By the way, great work getting Jerry Brown elected by trashing Meg Whitman non stop !

Nope. It means the GOP has left me. I’m going the TEA Party route from here on out. I’m getting tired of the GOPers attacking the TEA party candidates all the time anyway.
