Can't find crosstabs or who they actually polled on the site, pretty suspicious if you ask me.

According to the article, they only polled Republicans. Another trash poll...

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

Why do they do that? Are they really that clueless?

We Ask America is a Republican organization. They want to destroy Ron Paul's chance of winning Iowa. They know exactly what they're doing not including independent/Democrats.

This may end up backfiring on Romney.  If they increase expectations that Romney win Iowa, and he ends up getting 3rd or 4th, then that will harm him very badly.

Reading the 3012 boards dulls one's sense of irony.

Seriously. How many times can we read about the Obamachine 3000 pulling ahead of the Reagantronix QLZ in the race for Mars Mutant Colony's 48 electoral votes? Sheesh!

Yeah, it depends. On one hand, it could position someone else as the "not Romney" choice for Republicans and could drown out any independent/Democratic Paul voters.

On the other, the media has begun hyping up the importance of Iowa again. If independent turnout is sizable, Paul's going to win it and it will be hard to backtrack from their brand new claims that "Iowa matters".

My guess is that they figure that the independents won't show. Only thing left is to wait and see.

They all had periods of build up before being attacked. Paul had a period of denial where they claimed he couldn't win anywhere and should be ignored, followed by a period of constant attacks mixed in with more denial.
