The Paul-tards did this last time, they would spam a straw poll, crow like roosters and when the actual primary took place, nobody voted for Paul.

No one is falling for it again. Go crow on Stormfront, I hear the racists like Paul there.

some dude from an organization called stormfront stood next to Ron Paul and had his picture taken. So, you know. They’re the same, I guess. Nobody knows anything about this stormfront organization, especially what they look like. But they were in the same picture at some event.

The people arguing against Ron Paul really don’t have a lot of material. The acceptable foreign policy, which is, basically, Obama’s foreign policy, and therefore conservative, is not one that Ron Paul shares. So there are some people who would rather vote for someone like Newt who expanded Medicare.

I can’t tell the difference between a “Conservative” foreign policy and Clinton and Obama’s foreign policy.

I know that Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama have been involved in far more military conflicts than Reagan, the Conservative.

But the Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama foreign policy is “Conservative”.

no idea. there was an argument a little while ago that Cain might’ve been winning more straw polls than Paul. Not any more. It’s indicative of whatever it is that it’s indicative of. It says that Ron Paul wins these straw polls. I have no idea if other campaigns or grassroots care about these straw polls to try to win them. I know that Ron Paul likes to win them. So they win a lot of them. But not all of them. Sometimes the campaign cares and we usually win those. But Bachmann did win Ames. So, you know.

It’s relevant to some degree. Isn’t the Presidential Election one of the things that should be discussed? Straw Polls are an important part of the process. They’re worth discussing. Non stop talking about whether or not Cain is being smeared or if the whores are actually telling the truth isn’t the only thing happening in politics. Whether or not Newts wife might be getting sick and the chances of him dumping her if she doesn’t get well soon is worth talking about, but real things that real voters, real people do are also worth talking about.

well, yeah, the only place you’re going to see the word “stormfront” is on freerepublic on a ron paul thread.

But they aren’t saying that really. It was a complete non-sequitur. They have about 10 random attack lines on Ron Paul, and maybe none of them fit. Since all I was doing was posting the results of a straw poll, it’s hard to see where they really have anything to latch onto.

I know there are a lot of freepers who won’t accept anything but the Republican/Democrat Conservative/Liberal foreign policy that hasn’t changed since 1989.

Well said. These straw polls theoretically could be strong indicaters, but in the end they mean nothing. Paul supporters do infact spam the polls, but in the end the ballots in the primaries are what count and Paul always goes down in flames at that time.

San Diego’s heavily populated with military. Paul wants to get out of 150 countries where we don’t need to be and focus on defending America — not babysit other ungrateful nations. The results of the poll make sense.

I’m not for Paul, but in this case, he’s right.

Whoopedy freakin’ doo. Spastic Ron Paul fetishists get another opportunity to dump money and and time into a meaningless popularity contest which they totally purchase and this is news?

Wake me when the Scooby Doo villain actually polls in double digits or actually wins a legitimate primary.

Ron Paul has some good ideas—a % of the GOP/Libertarian thinking people will support him but—he will not lead the party—his view are—on many things just too extremism for America. He has a dedicated following and should be heard but it will never be enough to rise to the top. None of the people running for the GOP nomination are Racist in any form and using that bent and ripped card is beneath anyone who calls themselves Republicans.

Some of these “straw polls” are worth paying attention to. But when you have polls that sample less than the size of 4 Chicago precincts (370 voters= X 4) they’re valueless. As the saying goes the only polls that count are the resulting votes comming from American Poles.

In fact the results of some of these primaries are even questionable.Here we have tiny states like New Hampshire with small populations and set political views deciding who the candikdate is going to before the rest of the country gets a chance to pick their candidate. As far as I am concerned the Iowa Caucuses are a joke. (BTW the word caucus is an Algonquin word that made it into the American lexicon.)

The way I understand it. Voters have to show up a their polling place at a given time and go through a procedure which can take up to an hour or even more to decide on a winner as voters switch sides until a given pluality is reached and the winner gets declared. What would be fun to see is if they voted only once and no clear winner declared for that preccinct.. I could just see the resulting Headline... IOWA CAUCUS WINNER UNDECIDED ...That would screw things up very nicely

Appeasement Paul wins straw poll after straw poll, but that is all he ever does. The only way he gets more than about 5% in any poll is when he gets the blame America first crowd involved, and Republicans are not anti-American.
