Was listening to Glen Beck on NewsTalk AM 1270 - WYXC, Cartersville, GA - http://www.newstalk1270.com/

and I noticed their online poll had 5 candidates

McCain
Romney
Huckabee
Guiliani
Thompson

- but not Ron Paul!

Pointed this out to them:

Fred Thompson has dropped out - time to include Ron Paul

and here is their response:

Thanks for contacting us… No one is censuring Ron Paul or any other candidate. There was only room for five candidates in our poll and we took the top five per national polling data at the time the poll was set up. We would have liked to have included Tancredo and Hunter as well before they dropped out, but couldn't squeeze them in. With Fred Thompson's announcement that he is also leaving the race, we will be changing out our poll question later today.

I emailed them this morning and this is what I got back:

I have followed Ron Paul's career in Congress and agree with him on many Constitutional issues, but his lack of understanding of the threat we face from Islamo-fascism disqualifies him from consideration for most Republican voters… which is evidenced by his extremely poor showing in the contested primaries and caucuses in Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan, and South Carolina. Thanks again for visiting our web site."

grrrr.

they've removed the poll

they've removed the poll

There was no room?

Wait a damn minute. This was an on line poll, was it not? That is just about the lamest excuse I've heard lately. There was no room for more than 5 choices? Sorry folks. That doesn't even qualify as an excuse. It's an outright lie.

Hmmmm

No Ron Paul? I voted for Fred, they did say it would be RP's slot.

Couldn't hurt. How long does it take 'em to change a name on a poll?
