results from Oregon state fair booth poll (9/5/11)

A bit old now, but not *too* old...

I redid the order to rank them from most to least popular. Also, the fair ended on the 5th, so I don't expect any further votes. ;-)

Even though the results are not favorable for Ron Paul

it's still a better barometer than these telephone polls where nobody knows who the sponsors are contacting. But, keep in mind, nobody's campaigned in Oregon yet, so there has been minimal exposure......except what they watch on TV.

you're right about Oregon

Oregon is very, very backwater in the primaries. That Ron got 10% is a good indicator of the solid residual support he enjoys here. That support will go up a lot when he catches on more in the earlier states, where the campaign is focusing its efforts. Plenty of folks here "like Ron Paul, but..." and are there to be picked up by the R3VOJution bandwagon as the campaign picks up steam. In particular, supporters of Palin, Cain, and Bachmann are likely to have some sympathies for our issues. Even some of Newt's voters will break our way, I think. The rest will be tougher, but some are reachable. All, of course, need edumacatin'. ;-)

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.
