anti-hillary

Interesting that kent's angle for selling ron paul is that rp is the only gop candidate that can beat hillary. I'd surmise that that comment is aimed directly towards staunch republicans.

Hm. Maybe that's the best approach to convincing "the base.".

I personally have not tried this angle - with anyone - but I will give it a shot when I come across the next neo-con.

More details...

Look here for semi-MSM coverage of the event. They did a good job, IMHO.

Nah! The MSM can't be wrong.

Nah! The MSM can't be wrong. Don't believe the straw polls as they don't mean anything. And you there! Stop looking at the man pulling levers behind the curtain! Whatsamattau? LOL You just have to love it.

Was it an open straw poll?

From the wording on the article, it sounds like this was a poll that consisted of just the members of the Springfield Metropolitan Republican Club. If this is true, then it shows that he has strong mainstream support in that Republican club -- in other words, this wasn't due to an organizational effort by the local meetup group. I don't mean to put down such organization efforts, but when we see strong support in a straw poll that is closed, it speaks that much more strongly toward the progress we are making in reaching the mainstream Republican base.

Does anyone know if this poll was open or closed, or if there was any external effort on the part of a meetup group?

Spfd. Straw Poll

Yes, it was an open straw poll. The win was due to the efforts of the Springfield Meetup. Our meetup consists of Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, and at least one Democrat that I know of.

The result of the win was another nice article in the local paper, which can be seen @ http://www.news-leader.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/200711....

Ooops! Sorry, I now see that someone posted the News Leader article above.

Congratulations

I want to congratulate you on your efforts! Good publicity like this is great for the campaign, and it is good to see people from across the political spectrum coming together to support Ron Paul.

The link

clean house

it is telling which articles are consistently placed at the top of the forum. these paid bloggers work the swing shift, too, so when everyone logs on the next day they feel totally let down by the popular news items.

THESE are the stories we should be focusing on.

Well, the site *design's* a little strange. Another straw poll win is, if anything, boringly-normal. :)
