“Let me back up - why do you think Perry dropped so much?”
IMHO, I don’t think it’s so much that he “dropped” as it is that the media is once again trying to choose a GOP candidate for voters. The left is scared to death of an authentic macho type male with military service, a long record of getting things done and winning elections.
The fact that he is plain spoken, can laugh at himself and has a sense of humor makes him even more dangerous to the self-annointed liberal “intellectuals.”
His so-called “gaffs” are minor league compared to those of Obama and some of the other GOP candidates.
As far as the polls go, there is a history of surprises in Iowa and New Hampshire on elections days. Folks don’t always tell pollsters what they really believe.

If he didn't drop, then what do you call it when he goes from consistently hitting 20%-30% in the polling down to 6%-10%?
as it is that the media is once again trying to choose a GOP candidate for voters.
Are you saying the media convinced Conservatives to leave Perry? Most Conservatives I know certainly don't let the media dictate their choices. So who are these people that the media convinced to stop supporting Perry?
Plus, the media went after Cain a lot harder with the Gloria Allred crap than they ever went after Perry, and Cain didn't drop down to single digits. Perry's treatment by the media wasn't nearly as brutal as Cain's treatment by the media.
Folks dont always tell pollsters what they really believe.
So you're saying there is a group of Perry supporters who are pretending to support anybody but Perry? How does that help Rick Perry?
