Santorum is a DC plant ....

Santorum is just like obama was back in 2007 . No name recognition nationally , but somehow pulled off a win in Iowa , which was probably rigged with fraud . Same outcome this time around too . Keep a close three way race to the end , and the results will be "upset" by the Government controlled MSM . How any person in Iowa with half a brain would vote for Santorum or even prozac Mitt is beyond me .

NON-STOP SANTORUM COVERAGE on CNN & FoxNews

But, I don't even think a regular non-RP supporter could swallow this!

But, Iowa "doesn't count" right?

NON-STOP AD NAUSEUM COVERAGE for Santorum~~pure disgusting crap

from my experience

its a mix with my generation (Y) some really are attached to what their CNN says (may just be that I live too close to universities). A lot are free thinkers though, the progressive bug gets a lot of them too. Many are trapped in their day to day cycle and cannot see through it or even be motivated to vote.

It's hard to re-motivate the Me generation to vote again because so many of them were Obama supporters and feel betrayed and then get sunk to the commie philosophy (all politicians are crooks).

That being said, aside from the motivated RP supporters I don't think any of the other candidates are getting a significant portion of the vote under 32, maybe 32-50 will have a strong Romney base, only because some of these people aren't yet as bad off as everyone else as they were on the tail end of the easy money times but had some time to accumulate wealth and still think in the progressive spectrum. Aside from this people over 50 are easy to convert to Ron Paul except progressives, ESPECIALLY registered republicans. Based on this I tend to agree that Ron Paul's support probably falls around 50-52% of primary voters.

Why isn't this on Drudge?

More propaganda from the collectivist media.

Nothing to do but circumvent it.

( Paul in 5th with Seniors ) Only 11%

Ive said it before and i will say it again. The Boomers have had this country spiraling towards total ruin for decades. The worlds most spoiled, sheltered, head in the sand generation have striped these lands of all the seed corn and will continue to do so at the expense of MANY generations behind them. The Me, Me, Me Generation Zero has RUINED this country . 11% tells the tale. I predicted he wouldnt get any votes from the Boomer Generations and i WAS RIGHT! They care for nothing but themselves....16 Trillion and the boomers STILL have not budged for their kids and grand kids. And to top it all off they now have Heroic Health Care to make them live to be 120 years old...GOD help us all....

This tells me somerthing

We need to get into senior facilities and make an attempt to educate. These folks remember freedom and sound money. They used silver dimes everyday to buy 2 coca colas and vacation in Cuba. We need to remind them to leave us with those things that they had.

No one has deputized America to play Wyatt Earp to the world.

Baby boomers and the Me

Baby boomers and the Me generation are two distinctly different generations. The baby boomer generation spans the years from 1946-1960 later changed to 1964, whereas the Me generation describes anyone born in the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s. As you fall off your dais of righteousness, won't you please get your facts straight next time?

Please note that i called them

The Me, Me, Me generation ;) The kids that were born in the 70's , 80's and 90's have had to come up in the nightmare created by the REAL Me generation. You know, the kids with college degree's having to work 4 part time jobs in less than desirable places that pay next to nothing just to make ends meet?
The REAL "me" generation are the ones who traded our Industrial and Manufacturing base off for green shoots over the last few decades and have left their kids with nothing to bounce back with but a printing press.
The real ME generation are the ones who keep voting for bigger and bigger government and more and more security and are more concerned with themselves than they are their country or generations under them otherwise you would see them lined up to vote for Paul.
The REAL me generation are the ones running this country right now in to the ground on their kids and grand kids dime
The REAL me generation is CLEARLY the Boomer generation.
They are still in control
Pelosi, Bush, Al Gore, John Boehner, Gingrich, Harry Reid, Barney Frank,Bill and Hitlery Clinton,Lindsey Graham, Michelle Bachmann,Dick Cheney,..
Hell the list is a MILE long...AND what do they all have in common besides bankrupting a nation, their kids and grand kids and stripping these lands of its seed corn? They are all BOOMERS!
Do any of these Boomers in Washington have convictions or beliefs that cant be purchased for the price of a T-Shirt?
Sure doesn't look that way... I think the current conditions speaks volumes about who has overwhelmingly been running the country for the last few decades...Nuff Said!

Samuel Adams

So we take these polls seriously now?

Did you know that 70% of the Ron Paul supporters in my Iowa precinct are over the age of 70?

Don't read too much into these polls.

LOL, I'm gonna have to say

LOL, I'm gonna have to say PROVE IT ! ;) Its possible with 70+ but thats NOT the boomer generation.....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

I understand that they aren't boomers,

but they are seniors! Kinda blows that 11% theory out of the water, now doesn't it? I wouldn't discredit any generation just yet.

My post were more related to

My post were more related to the age breakdown in the polling rather than the specific term "Seniors".
Its funny that people keep arguing this yet every poll, ANY poll you look up present AND past will confirm that everything Ive said here is true. Funny that you always have a few (offended by the facts) folks come in to try and debunk REALITY ;) Its almost as bad as listening to the MSM put their "spin" on the facts lol
I suppose your right in your regard to seniors. Those in their 70's on probably still have a good head on their shoulders ....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

Yes, it's a psy-op.

Fortunately, fewer and fewer buy into it.

Has nothing to do with "class". I'm a pretty wealthy man myself INDEPENDENTLY Wealthy. In other words i have not made or kept my wealth squandering from others or future generations.
Call it what you will sir, I call it the truth and you can trust me on this , no amount of ass kissing will change that "groups" mind about anything... Sorry if the truth hurts but somebody has to say it.... More truth and less BS....

Perhaps but no need to generalize you did

"The Boomers have had this country spiraling towards total ruin for decades. The worlds most spoiled, sheltered, head in the sand generation have striped these lands of all the seed corn and will continue to do so at the expense of MANY generations behind them. The Me, Me, Me Generation Zero has RUINED this country"

My parents are Boomers and they did none of this.

Kinda like saying "All Ron Paul supporters are nutcases or racists. Not true

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

gingrich is gone now...time to prop up another puppet

bastards.

A bit disappointing that the

A bit disappointing that the polls are showing a drop for Paul whether it is due to some manipulation for the Caucus results or just a matter of all the negative adds on Paul. If it is due to the negative adds and media, it shows how "damning" Paul's various comments can be warped to "derail" him.

I hope this doesn't come down to a vote rigging.

Ron Paul is going after Obama

Dood doctor going after Obama today:

I find this really odd

the MAJORITY of Ron Paul supporters in my precinct are over 70 years old! I wouldn't discount the seniors too much yet, they might surprise us on Tuesday night.

This is encouraging

I just watched TV and the daily polling had Ron Paul dropping 2 points every day last week. Friday's poll had him at 16% and the pundits say he will come in 3rd or 4th.
They also said it is a myth that independents and democrats will come, change party, and vote for Ron Paul.

I guess we will find out tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone for all their hard work

They are saying he will come

They are saying he will come in 3rd or 4th?
