31%...Could any rational human explain this to me?


They made the link active again. Yes it shows Ron Paul in 3rd.

Detective Krum Investigates:

I may have looked at the wrong poll

But it has him in 4th with 8%. What the heck happened??



Rasmussen Daily Poll

Rasmussen releases a poll every day I believe. Ron Paul has gone from 15% to 11% and now down to 8%. Personally I think he wasn't aggressive enough in the ABC debate. Remember this is a Republican primary, not a national general election. National security is one of the core issues to the Republican base and I think some people may have mistook Dr. Paul politeness as a sign of weakness. The Republican base wants a strong leader, acting like a rude assclown doesn't seem to have hurt McCain at all.

Hopefully I'm wrong and the difference in polls is just because they are calling different people.

Try this math for a 4 day tracking poll

(15% + 15% + 15% + X ) / 4 =11%
what number is X?
Hint X = 0
what do they think? No one can do arithmetic?

new problem
(15% + 15% + 0% + X%) / 4 = 7.5% (rounds to 8%)
what number is X?

C-span just showed a Zogby

C-span just showed a Zogby poll with RP at 6% said McCain is taking the independent votes away from Dr Paul. They have completely blacked RP out. I pray to God those numbers are not true.


Notice the link to the poll has been removed now? Gee, wonder if someone is trying to keep people in the dark?

Polling and Media

Some observations:
They will use whichever poll suits them, as FOX does, in order to support their coverage.

It's all relative sometime. Not to prop up Hillary, but the whole spin now since Iowa has been, how can Hillary 'come back' in NH from her 'big loss' of 29% in Iowa. Is this not a joke? She was third, but 29% was right up there with the other two candidates. I suppose she should have kept her mouth shut about bragging about being the inevitable nominee.

The ONLY reason McCain has this sudden interest when he had no campaign all summer is because of the news outlets in NH, liberal and faux conservative alike, endorsing him. People are sheeple and they followed that lead. This summer, his workers, even ones taking big pay, were nowhere to be found on the campaign trail, and the crowds for him were nil.

CSPAN is replaying Rudy's house party this weekend for the second time today. Ron had two parties so far, one very successful one on Friday night which was written up in an out of state paper, and another Saturday morning that I did not hear about yet. There is yet another one coming up on Monday night. The only thing on CSPAN about him has been the ads they play for all the candidates and the nonsense with the editor of the UL. I let him know that talking about our national debt is not out of the mainstream and sent him that video.

It's the little things that count. You will notice that the three candidates who dared talk about border security were either run out of the race, are at 0-1% or if like RP have gained money and support, are now being attacked and marginalized. Meanwhile the annointed ones are talking against each other about each of their tendencies to capitulate on this issue depending on what they are after. If you follow these type of issue you know that the CFR's goal is open borders and a supranational government. So any candidate who is THAT STRONG on border security is not going to be considered 'mainstream'. The candidates can talk all they want, but the de facto condition under which they would govern would be dictated by the globalists as it is now...with Bush all but ignoring border security.

Push Polls: Just got the Common Sense Issues push poll from the HUCKSTER camp. It was only about him, Mitt and McCain. If you answered a certain way you would hear dirt on that candidate. I heard dirt on Mitt, but I said this would NOT make me likely to vote for Huck nor any of the others!!! These kinds of calls are illegal in NH.

Needless to say, I am very frustrated to have been invited to sit at Ron's table today at the Brunch but not be able to attend due to illness. You cannot imagine how frustrating it is to be voiceless and not even be able to call CSPAN or talk on the phone to reporters! Otherwise I'd have been doing my best out there to get more coverage for RP.

Sorry to hear that..

i hope and pray you'll feel better soon, in the meantime I will pray that who ever is out there representing Ron Paul will do a stellar job. I really want him to win NH. Wish I could be there.

Fox uses Rasmussen for Democrats but not for....

With Ron Paul still third with Rasmussen it was with absolute disbelief I have just seen Rasmussen used by Fox for the Democrats but not for Republicans.
This cuts across the whole principle of polls.

Rasmussen Poll

i went to rasmussen and it lists him at 11%, not 14%. however that's still good enough for a third place tie



exclusion conclusion

after surfing around all morning have come to the conclusion that that fox exclusion is actually a positive now..it would only be another repub neocon snickering,giggling, & laughing attack RP show,disguised as a "debate"..anyway..

100 Years War

People need to be pummeled with this -- on CSPAN callins at McCain functions, everywhere on the web.
Like the others, McCain is good at concealing his not so conservative record...people are dumb.

That's Odd...

Fox News still has him at 3%.
(Yes, I was being sarcastic)

To Rich in NH re "Hey, take that back" comment

Hey, Rich. I'm married to a New Hampshire farm boy, living in the People's Republic of Massachusetts. I told my husband years ago that his dear state was doomed because the schmucks here in Massachusetts were moving in droves to NH to escape the very conditions that they themselves created. The average person is so unaware--it is frightening. They create sucky public schools, high taxation, crime, etc. through their stupid voting records and then they move to NH and begin to recreate the same thing! Stunning.

That was about 10 years ago--and Rich, you're right. NH is beginning to suck almost as much as Massachusetts.

I want Ron Paul to WIN New Hampshire ...

G** D*** it is that too much to ask?

He needs third place. I

He needs third place. I would love to see the media's collective jaws drop. He will be the "winner" of NH if he gets 3rd place and beats Huck, Thompson and Giuliani. It would be the perfect springboard into a new momentum for this race. If he consistently polls above 10% in all the primaries, I'd think that's good enough for him to launch an independent run, and would prove that he could do quite well and keep his issues on the debate floor and in the American consciousness until Nov. 2.

Also agree

If he finishes third, no way he can be written off by the talking heads. I sure hope this happens as I want to watch Fox News (yes, Fox) as they are forced to report the results.

I do expect, should Dr. Paul perform strongly on Tuesday, we will be hearing how NH is a meaningless state, overrated, blah blah. They will try to spin.

If he finishes a poor 5th, I just can't see where new momentum comes from.

You are right. A third place

You are right. A third place would be awsome and would allow him to launch an independent run, but I think it may earn him enough MO to keep his hopes for a Republican victory alive.

I will be happy

if RP is third place. This proves he is for the long run. People calm down, this is just the beggining and we have money, they don't.


Look at how the numbers flip from one state to the next. Ron Paul has the money to gain consistent momentum, whereas Huckabee only has the religious vote here and there. Things are looking very good if he gets third place in NH.

Register as Republican and Vote for Ron Paul

insain McCain in lead?

I thought New Hampshirian's were SMART,INDEPENDENT & ANTI-WAR?
there is that block of independents, 45% of them, that aren't being polled..this is the kicker here for sure.

randy n.

I have no plans for that.

Why, if we can't win the Republican primary, then why try to run a 3rd party where you can't get into any debate.

Because you can

Perot got in the debates.

If Ron polls 10%+ in these primaries, and continues to raise his name recognition, he'll be popular enough to gain entrance into the debates in a 3 or 4 way race come October.

Get used to it - Paul's running for November as a Republican or Independent.

That's not what he said

Ron Paul has basically said there is zero chance of him running as an independent. I don't think we should get used to anything like that. We need to just keep focused on making him win the Republican nomination.

Register as Republican and Vote for Ron Paul

No way

There is no reason for an independent run. It would again result in him getting 3rd place, and how does that help anyone? Win or lose, after this he should focus on creating hundreds of Ron Paul's to take over Congress and the Senate. And by creating I don't mean making clones of himself. :)

1billion dollars!

Did I hear right, Huckabee was proposing to give a billion to whoever came up with the best fuel efficient car?. Was that going to be his own money , or the tax payers money?. Is he for business welfare or the free market?. This forked tonged snake oil salesman is unbelivable, realy unbelivable!

Need to stay ahead of Huck

If RP can't edge out Huckabee by a wide margin in NH it is all over.

Watch the film "THX1138" online for a glimpse into the future.

That's baloney. RP is

That's baloney.

RP is getting a +7 bounce in NH.

Huckabee is not getting a bounce in the Rasmussen poll.

Please don't buy into media spin.

Keep up the great work!

You know, we might consider

You know, we might consider running our own ad broadcasting the 100 year remark. I know Ron won't go negative on his own, but that remark really needs more exposure.

Renewable Wealth - Profitable Green Investing

That remark is on YouTube, you know

It would be an utter shame (and big missed opportunity) if Ron doesn't bombard NH airwaves with McCain's comment.

You can thank OLFOD

You can thank OLFOD in great part for this...as they have picked up the ball and are now doing the grunt work of getting out the word on Ron Paul.

I love those guyz!!

And they need more donations!!!

hello guys!

i AM one of those guys. right now sitting in a house in Rye NH with about 30 other people, recounting the days' events. it's been terrific and a ton of work and a great experience. Just wanted to give a shout out and say hello and thanks for your support!

FYI we had a donor send us 13,000 pocket copies of the declaration of independence/ constitution and they are like GOLD. we use them in canvassing and people- ALL people- treat them with reverence. Once people find out we have a candidate that supports the Constitution and that they can vote for him, they convert, 4 times out of 5. Oh, the stories I could tell you about that, but i gotta get ready for tomorrow.

we gotta win this freakin' state!


hello to U2

thanks for all the great,hard work there in NH! God bless you & God bless RP!

We're All With You

Keep up the good work. Sprint to the finish line! There are groups, Meetups and otherwise who are working for Liberty in our own states, just like you. You guys get the spotlight first. We have longer to work, but not that much longer. We're counting on NH for a springboard to success!

Our Meetup in southwest Missouri is canvasing two days a week, working with other groups in surrounding counties and towns, and we've raised enough money (among ourselves) to finance 5 full-size high visibility billboards in the area. When we're not involved in group promotion, we grab our signs and stake out a busy intersection one revolutionary at a time.

This is such an amazing thing! It really is a revolution, and our grandchildren will someday thank us for our efforts.

In Liberty,

Don't forget other polls

Now I am not one to believe the polls too much but before we get TOO excited, three other polls came out in the past day and they put Dr. Paul with 6, 7, and 8 percent support, respectively. Personally I think he's going to get closer to the 14% number but we can't take it for granted. For those in NH this weekend, we are with you in spirit! Go Ron Go!


How in the heck does McCain even register. He thinks he's the Fonz with the cheap leather jacket. Looks like the free radicals have totally taken over his body. Not sure if he will live long as well.

McCain - health?

Give the guy a break. Do you know what hell he must have went through as a POW for 5 years in Vietnam? Amazing that he is even alive. Got to respect a person like that for being able to endure hell on earth and to live to tell about it. He may not be the best politician but give him some respect for what he endured for his country as a POW.

McCain - Neocon DREAM

The problem with this is every since the Union Leader so foolishly endorsed this fake conservative, that gave people the idea to choose him in the polls.

Trouble is, so did all the LIBERAL papers!
He's for amnesty, continuing the war, control of the internet, International Criminal Court, and won't sign an anti-tax pledge; he's a neocon's dream!

Most in NH have not heard the "make it 100 years" comment

Watch the expressions on the faces of the audience as McCain says "make it 100" years of Iraqi occupation.



That was a very interesting expression on their faces. Just wait until they tell their friends what McCain had to say.

Is this making it onto the mainstream press in any way?

Facial expressions RE 100 years in Iraq

Check out the women on the lower left side of the screen and the guy next to her...their jaws both drop open when McCain says it would be OK with him to be in Iraq for 100years.

This would be a beautiful clip in a TV ad for Ron Paul

Campaign...Are you listening???

Great news. This poll doesn't even take independents into consideration. Paul should do very well in NH.

For those Paulians who were

For those Paulians who were disapointed in Iowa results I suggest to turn this negative energy into the positive: do something extra for Freedom and Ron Paul. Use this energy to push it further, to advance.
Me? I am getting new Ron Paul front lawn sign. Third sign that is. But this time it will be much bigger to get more exposure.
My friend just informed me, that he made call to a potential Obama's supporter and told him about Ron Paul, infecting him with Ron Paul virus.
Don't you ever give up. Ever.
Are you disapointed? Do More !!!! Spread the virus. Spread the crabgrass.

I'm telling ya...

He's catching on! (^_^)

Don't blame me! I voted for Ron Paul!

I intend to hold New

I intend to hold New Hampshire to its state motto. If they don't live up to it by giving Paul a landslide victory, they should be shamed into changing it. I suggest "Freedom Died With The Old Man" -- although that might not fit on the license plates.

The opposite of freedom is slavery; if I am 99% free, then I am part slave, which is like being "a little bit pregnant." Freedom versus slavery is a zero-sum game.
