Democrats Divide & Conquer Republicans?

Yeah, that is pretty lame. The brackets turn it into a casino.

Not to mention the voting. It would be a little better if the brackets had been randomly selected, but from the names going up against each other, I think you're right - this was intentional, hand-picked opponents.

I guess the whole thing is just another distraction by the media.

I took a look around the web, and there are supporters of every person voting like crazy and discussing it. There's quite a buzz going on this dumb poll, from Huckabee supporters to Palin supporters, to Romney supporters.

They've all got posts in their forums. And all of them are voting multiple times or to try to take out those they feel are a threat.

Divide and Conquer?

Ron Paul's Convention Speech

I'm proud of our dedication....

and technological prowess.

Unfortunately, supporters of other candidates need to be educated, not just defeated in rigged online polls.

If I were a Romney supporter, I would feel (justifiably) violated by running into the Ron Paul techno buzzsaw.

Especially since his actual numbers (even without the alleged bot votes) is trouncing the rest of the field right now.

This whole NPR poll stinks on ice.
But what would you expect from an organization that is probably the most corrupt mainstream media outlet in existence. (And,no, I don't exempt Faux News.)

898,000+ votes cast!

Ron Paul is ahead!

Pure Freedom to Vote. You just need a few driven dedicated few.

Ron Paul often says that revolutions are started by a few dedicated percent of the people.

But we cannot underestimate those constitutionally ignorant Romney supporters. Several times they have completely reversed the poll results giving Romney twice the number of votes of Ron Paul!

Ron Paul's Convention Speech

I only voted once

but I do not oppose multiple voting since it is so obvious Romney fans are using bots to vote for Romney. There have been moments when his vote count was going up over 2000 votes per minute. Which is odd because prior to that he was getting around 400 to 500 votes per hour during internet peak hours.

Fair is fair. We would be fools to let Romney's people use bots and not respond.

The the to do...

..is stop acting like a bunch of maniacal maniacs over this stupid thing. Kind of like what we want the Congress to do, that is, do nothing. How do you know that NPR isnt collect MAC addresses or IP addresses and just adjusting for each and every duplicate, triplicate, etc, vote that you guys submit. Give this dumb thing a rest, so the people who think we're a bunch of numb-nut radicals have less to speak-on. Clearly given the number of votes, the results are truly meaningless....

"Qui audet adipiscitur"

Given the distribution of the numbers, it's evident that the

Romney fans (and others) will make the Hannity-claim that the poll results are meaningless because of the Paul/Romney numbers. I just looked. Thus far, they're showing 842,536 votes cast against the Paul/Romney selection and the next highest number is 96,385 in the Palin match up. If only keyboards and mouse clicks could decide elections. :)

"An economy built on fiat money is a society on its way to ashes."

Oh yes....they would crow.....and nobody would notice that

the numbers demonstrate that the probability is that Romney's supporters are likely voting multiple times. If, out of a total of 860,924, Romney (at 32%) has still gotten 275,495 votes, then those 275,495 votes are still way way beyond the next highest total in the Palin contest. So what would their complaint be? That Dr. Paul's supporters do a better job of skewing the results that the Romney supporters? None of them would be likely to take into account Dr. Paul's frequent appearances on various news programs, especially since the election/meltdown, showing over and over how it was his (Dr. Paul's) message and warnings that were accurate; not Mitt Romney's.

she's losing but, but a thin margin. it shows that she still has some credibility among the sheep.

if you voted for her, my most unsincere sympathies.

This is ridiculous. I can't

This is ridiculous. I can't believe some of you would cheat on this stupid NPR poll. Who cares if Ron looses!
Do you honestly think this lame poll is going to effect our movement so much that you would stoop so low as to "booting" (cheating) to get Ron to win? Isn't voter one of the issues we fight?

Might as Well Have Ron Paul Win!

Especially since it doesn't cost any time or effort.

Besides, nobody is cheating. Everyone is just voting within the poll's design. The poll allows multiple votes, so people are going to vote multiple times. NPR web designers must have known this.

I seriously doubt anyone is actually hacking the poll, and if anyone is, it would most likely be the poll designer, or someone with web access at NPR.

Ron Paul's Convention Speech

Ok, but then

who cares if somebody cheats this online poll? You do;)
I personally find this "cheat war" very amusing:)

truth liberate

It's the Florida straw poll

We are just not satisfied video taping

Can someone get that vidoe out to

The Rombots sites and Huck forums. That would get there goats running.

I am actually suprised

how much more votes jim demint is getting than mark sanford. Unless that is our guys hating on huckabee (not that he doesnt deserve it)

They're On to Us

It seems some of the supporters of Mitt Romney have suspected us of cheating in the NPR poll, as referenced here.

Went there

think that it is funny that in one of the boxes c4l guy is letting them have a taste of liberty

something is fishy here

Yesterday, this poll had around 300k people voting in the RP/Romney segment.

I don't know how you get another $350k+ votes in 24 hours. Plus, the margin is still about the same in terms of percentage.

It would seem to me that someone purposely is trying to invalidate the poll itself by sheer volume versus the other candidates (e.g. hacking)

This is to discredit the entire poll altogether because someone knows Ron Paul will be winning it. =)

Maybe CPAC? I seriously doubt Romney has that many real supporters like Ron Paul has. I should have taken some screen shots. This will invedibly be made into a youtube conspiracy video.

what the hell is going on here.....

Alittle history on this poll

when I voted on this poll last week there were 90,000 votes and a 37/63 split. If there is any "padding" alledged then it is from both sides of the poll as the percentage has more or less been maintained despite 8 times as many votes.

65 - 34

took him 25500 votes that time

2:1 ratio

Romney was goig at a 2:1 ratio for the last 4 hours or so but now Paulites 1.5:1 ratio roughly, but Romney is still going faster

Teh rodent Hunter surge !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mitt Romney 33% 228260

Ron Paul 66% 461116

Total Votes: 689,493

Gaining fast

66 - 33

took him 21500 votes that time to gain on us

Rodent Hunter surge continues, gaining on Paul

Mitt Romney 32% (214617)
Ron Paul 67% (453592)

Total Votes: 668,209

I Wonder if NPR is spaming their own poll.

Let's be clear here, there's only one entity to blame for this crappy poll, the creator.

Ron Paul's Convention Speech
