Have You Seen This Straw Poll?

Have you seen this ad yet? It reads: "Presidential Straw Poll", vote for your Presidential Nominee.

http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/imgad?id=CM7JyaGk8...

As of 2-17-11 it shows RP at only 9% with Gingrich leading at 33%. Are these stats for real or is this an attempt to "indirectly" reenforce the "He can't win" mentality even after he has already won the first straw poll?

How should we handle this? Is there any ways to verify?

-UPDATED-
Now I even see it advertised on this site.

townhall.com is a media giant and offers fake conservative news

They own SRN News which is broadcast to rural areas including RAND's area in Kentucky.

In fact I was driving through Kentucky a few weeks ago and heard SRN News bashing RAND PAUL for not supporting foreign aide to Israel; of course they failed to mention that RAND actually likes Israel but doesn't believe in foreign aide period to anyone... or the fact that the Arab States around Israel take about 3 times the dog fight money from the USA than Israel does.

"SRN" stands for Salem Radio Network. This is a big corporate monster that has more /less an identical agenda to News Corp and Fox News... pretend to be religious and conservative broadcasters (like the PHARISEES pretended to be priests), but then these Judas types turn and serve Caesar and the evil kings of this world and stand full on in opposition to God and his oppressed children.

Salem pretends to host local townhalls too... their main domain name for all the corporations they hold redirect to TOWNHALL.com. What a joke.

Salem's list of syndicated writers include hardcore NEO-CONs Jeb Bush and Fred "ABC Disney Lawyer/Lobbiest" Thompson.

This company (Salem Communications - SRN News) is one of our primary enemies and a major agent for spreading disinformation across much of the little served rural and remote parts of America!

Make no mistake about this.

Thank you for informative post re. Townhall.com

I really appreciate your post re. Townhall.com. Before even knowing much about townhall.com and having only a very little contact with them, I've gotten bad vibes about them. (I think this is raw level discernment sensitivity God gives to people committed to truth).

Thanks again for the post

another "strawpoll"

It is NOT for real! It is one more neocon con job making believe that they have far more influence in the GOP--and American politics generally--than they in fact have!

Offer another "strawpoll" with the names of Sarah Palin, Daffy Duck, Newt Gingrich, Donald Chump, Elmer Fudd, Tweetypie, and Fidel Castro and you would get results that are just as valid--or not--as the case may be!

Unfortunately I've seen this townhall.com straw poll ad on DP

Unfortunately I've seen this townhall.com straw poll advertisement on The DP. Do you know why this is the case? (Perhaps to get us to vote for Ron Paul)

The challenge is: By voting for RP on the poll (which I've done on almost a daily basis)I/we are validating the presupposition that it is a valid poll.

As I've mentioned in other posts, the poll's initial ads in Feb. came out with Gingrich at over 50% & Palin and Romeny about 25% each... the total was 99% for 3 candidates. Gingrich finished way down in the ranks for January. They have obviously puffed Gingrich's numbers.

I look at this poll as much more subtle and devious error than the in your face Hannity hostility against RP in the Fox News polls pre-2008 republican primary.

Puffing Gingrich and to some degree Palin is along the lines of Joel Skousen's thoughtful insights (viewed as a paid subscriber at www.prisonplanet.tv) about the coming 2012 election. Mr. Skousen thoughtfully asserts that the globalists want a Gingrich/Palin Repub ticket or possibly a Palin as Pres ticket (this would result in 4 more for Soetero/Obama). The elites most likely (they watch trends to see what they should get behind or fight against through the media, etc.) want Gingrich either in 2012 but more likely in 2016 as a war president during a time of great global upheaval (major wars, possibly ww3).

This townhall.com farce of a poll fits in along this line of thinking. Puffing Gingrich (3 wive, immoral, false 1994 Contract with America, globalists, CFR, pro-offensive war.

We need to find a way to expose this rotten to the core controlled townhall.com poll.

Any thoughts on how to do this?

Yes. Pls see my post just above yours

So DP cannot control what google posts on its pages? I don't understand (yet).

Couldn't agree with you more!

This same ad about 2 weeks ago didn't even have Paul or anyone but the 'top three' in this Townhall 'poll' It had Gingrich at 51%, Palin at 25% and Romney at 23%, totalling 99%, which is totally bogus. All the other candidates totalled 1%. Sure.

I pointed this out to 2 people at the Townhall table at CPAC the other day. One said, 'It's just an ad' The other one said, I haven't seen it so I don't know what you're talking about. I should have saved the ad. So now, it looks like Dr. Paul has a come a long way from less than 1%, etc. It's an absolute lie.

Presuppositions are everything. The presupposition is that the 3 went out to an early lead this month - February and RP is catching up. It's a lie.

They don't reveal the day to day stats of the poll and apparently only reveal who "wins" for the month at the end of the month.

I can assure you from the bottom of my head and heart that this poll is seriously flawed and is a lie.

What should be our actions about this bogus poll? They seem to have that devilish out of 'plausible deniability', meaning they are lying but you can't absolutely prove it, so suck eggs, fellow. Townhall 'rules'.

I've been increasingly unimpressed and disappointed with Townhall in several ways over the past 2 weeks.

Re: Couldn't agree with you more!

Couldn't have said it better, "Presuppositions are everything".

In my studies of mind control and word games, I learned that in many cases arguments are normally won by the guy who fires the first verbal shot.

-or to expand a little more-

This first shot normally succeeds because the targeted audiance is lacking on information and what the first shot guy said fills in the void enough to make rational sense to the listeners. This tactic normally succeeds if there is no rational come back to defute the logic.

This is also the case I am tryin to articulate here with this post.

Thanks for the feed back!

Proverbs (in the Bible) supports, affirms, and backs you up

A verse in Proverbs, part of the eternal and specific Word of God says the same thing. Paraphrased, it says 'The first person is considered correct until a second one sets the record straight.'
