Wow! WTF?!

Take another look at the Rasmussen page. They did a new poll today OMITTING Ron Paul, and they delete the old one that showed Ron Paul ahead of Romney against Obama!

This link used to go to the poll from the other day, now it's a poll from today with no mention of Ron Paul...


And we caught sight of the real polls!

Ron Paul ahead of Obama by 2

Even if they try to erase it, everyone's seen it.
Flood Stossel/Fox & get it on T.V.


We need Doug Wead to make a national ad with this....

Then flood all of Fox News with this poll: Ron Paul leads Obama by 2!

Flood all Fox News advertisers as well as The Hills!!

Put the Democratic Party Establishment on notice

electability ad ?!!

we need an electability ad with all these polls of Dr.Paul vs Obama.

Much better than the TX ad

That would be a much better ad than the TX ad.

Wait a sec

Is it not more like a 100% Win for the Constitutional Candidate, Ron Paul since Obama doesn't actually qualify to hold office in the United States since he has still to provide ANY real proof of his existence as a real person? I'm a graphic designer and I downloaded that White House FILE (not document), opened it in Adobe Illustrator and saw a BUILT FILE not a scanned document just as Sherif Arpaio's investigation has shown.

If people bring that to MAINSTREAM light, he would be impeached then everything Obama has signed into law would be null and void, would it not? Would he even be impeached if he isn't even eligible? Or just arrested?

Come on man...

Would you rather beat Obama in a head-to-head debate and race with Liberty on our side or keep complaining about what could potentially be some sort of technicality and could be much ado about nothing?


I'm baffled at how the largest political scandal in the USA's HISTORY (if not the world) is viewed by some as "some sort of technicality". How can you speak of Liberty, who's foundation is The US Constitution, without going "head-to-head" with the FACT that Obama has not proven he is even an American Citizen, which is Required by the Constitution to hold ANY political office? Instead he (or whoever) uploaded a FRAUDULENT PDF FILE of what resembles an actual and legal B.C.???

I hardly consider American's Liberties vanishing by an impostor in the White House "much ado about nothing". AND I'M CANADIAN!

I understand that the topic is uncomfortable because of how insane it seems and people who ask questions just have their voices labelled as Conspiracy Theory. But answer this, what are you left with when Theories turn out to be Facts?

May keep Obama off the Arizona Ballot.
If that happens other states may follow suit.
State Officials will then be accountable to the voters.
News blackout may be broken at that time.

Impeachmet would not be necessary.

Nothing just about what Mr O did.

Drudge is a big part of the problem

People need to understand that the Drudge Report is a big part of the problem in keeping people distracted. He is part of the establishment and only links to stories that the powers that be on the right allow him to. Anyone that complains about a Fox News bias and still gets most of their news from Drudge needs to take a step back and look at the big picture. He pushes the news cycle now. Yes, he does link to important stories, but its all agenda based to shape readers opinion.

He is a neocon propagandist and no fan of true liberty or Ron Paul. These people that say, "lets send this to Drudge" don't get it and are wasting their time. Case in point, Rasmussen is a respected polling company yet when I just pulled up Drudge I see a headline Romney Leads Obama in Latest Poll. Click on the link and its a Foxnews poll that doesn't even mention Paul.

I know this post sounds abrasive, but its time we pull our heads out.

Not abrasive at all...

Just a needed dose of reality. Thanks for dishing it out. I'm sure many of us need(ed) to hear that...

You are absolutely right,

You are absolutely right, KingDiz

I registered with this site

I registered with this site just to leave this comment. Drudgereport has a little box on the site to report a news story. Everyone submit this story and let's see if he takes notice.

With name recognition

With name recognition factored in, Paul has been leading in the "Republican Candidate vs. Obama" category for months. I have always thought this was his best one-line message for a GOP that claims overwhelmingly that all they want is to beat Obama.

1% is not a victory

I wouldn't say 1% is a victory in a poll. A 'tie' yes, 'victory' - no.

I wish the number was higher to really call a victory for RP.

Ron Paul or no one in 2012!

I should add that the 1% is better than what is to be expected with the media blackout on RP.

Then you do not study polls and math

1. To out poll an incumbent is to win by a at least 10 points - it rarely EVER goes the other way
2. To out poll an incumbent when the whole country has been told you are not even in the race - THAT my friend is a miracle - not a tie.

Margin of error.

Lies, damn lies, & statistics.

It WOULD be MUCH higher,

It WOULD be MUCH higher, except that 50% of Republicans don't really know Ron Paul or his positions, and probably 80% of Democrats do not know about Dr. Paul.

And that is really the compelling story here

and why WE can win. If Paul beats Obama in the poll and we say most people dont even know about him - that means 45% of the people don't care who RP is - they just know they DONT want Romney or Obama. Often times on this site people take the love of RP personal and feel that if you are to vote for him you must first pass some initiation of love and understanding. Stop people - winning is winning - and if that means we pull votes because the other two suck - well then just say thank you. We need sheeple too!!!

1% is a victory

I wish it were higher too.

This is quite good.

Spread, spread, spread

I just put together a quick article on this.

Check it out here: http://ingotnews.com/post/20982150853/ron-paul-is-the-only-r...

I advise others to do the same, we need to get this word out! Ron Paul is the only one that can beat Obama - people just don't seem to get it - they need to see these polls to believe it!

Spread, spread, spread!
