SCOOP: Poll Used to Humiliate Paul on CNBC Kudlow Show DishonestSubmitted by attackapathy on Sat, 05/12/2012 - 11:59
In the latest Larry Kudlow show on CNBC they post a BIG GRAPHIC showing a Rasmussen Poll of Obama vs. Romney vs. Paul. Sounds great Paul should come in first place by gangbusters. Kudlow goes on "They included you as a third party candidate."
Paul only gets 13%! How is that possible. But is showing Paul as a Independent candidate Reality? The poll calls Ron Paul an "Independent" not once, but twice! But one has to ask... where is the poll where Ron Paul is a Republican? You know, the party he is actually running as?
One thing the corporate propaganda machine has learned is that the few words "you as a third party candidate" will get lost in the shuffle and its the graphic that matters. If one wasn't careful one assumes that this graphic is a correct representation of the CURRENT RACE. But it isn't. It's a hypothetical fiction about something that may never happen.
Now wait a second. PAUL is running as REPUBLICAN and he has NEVER SAID HE WILL RUN THIRD PARTY. Is it a legitimate poll? Maybe. But there's more shenanigans afoot.
One game they play is they place leading questions which subconsciously skew people's thinking. They use word association, mentioning Ron Paul and "unfavorable" not once, but TWICE together in the same sentence. "Do you want to vote for Ron Paul the unfavorable candidate? Do you think Ron Paul is unfavorable? How about Ron Paul the loser piece of crap candidate? Ok Paul vs. the Great Favorable Romney who do you pick?" It's practically that bad.
