I work in Homecare and while I was at a client's house, of course, he had Fox news on.. He was talking to me while Neil Cavuto (fox news) was doing a commentary about third parties and the reason that they don't have a chance is because "The media" doesn't give people the opportunity to hear them and their positions and keep saying "they can NEVER win" I know that he specifically mentioned Ron Paul but I had to focus on the client..
Last night following the debate there was a Poll on foxnews.com asking who won the debate.
By 1AM Eastern Ron Paul was clearly in the lead by a large margin with roughly 18,500 votes and 38.17% of the total vote.
As of this morning the Poll has either been removed, or moved and buried somewhere on the foxnews.com site.
The now non-functional link to the poll is as follows.
A search for Ron Paul on foxnews.com still lists this as the 3rd result, but the link goes nowhere...
Maybe I'm wrong, but shouldn't we all be clamoring and protesting about the complete absence of Gary Johnson from the debates? I know we have a lot of liberty-leaning supporters, and we have a lot of impact in the news when we work together.
Now that Paul is firmly placed at #3 with double-digit polling, shouldn't we be trying to get Johnson in the debates so that the two of them can further contrast the difference between retro-conservatives and neo-conservatives?
Donald Trump received over three times as much news coverage than Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) this year, according to a report by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism.
The report found that Trump was featured in 94 campaign stories by 52 major news outlets from from January 1 to August 14, but the same news outlets only featured Paul in 27 campaign stories.
The real estate mogul and reality television star briefly considered running for president in the spring.
After Paul came in second place in the Ames Straw Poll in a near tie with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Politico chief columnist Roger Simon and The Daily Show host Jon Stewart both noted that the Texas congressman had not received the media attention he deserved.
