First you should consider weighing actual percentages obtained in polls and actual dollars raised in FEC reports. Try fitting the shoe on the other foot and see how it feels. If Ron Paul had raised $150 million to Mitt Romney's $20 million but had Mitt had scored a point higher than Paul in several polls, how would you feel about issuing them each a one and a two? Swap it around again: both raise about the same: $25-million for Romney, $24.8-million for Paul but Paul held a 20-point lead over Perry in the three latest polls. A one and a two for each is fine with you?
