1) all the focus is on the GOP

2) Nobody takes Paul seriously, so he's escaped scrutiny of the entirety of his platform. But if it ends up a two-horse race... he'll be eviscerated.

So, I don't think it really matters. In fact, I wouldn't take any poll seriously until the GOP race is settled.

This is my new thing. Instead of empty quoting people, I'm just gonna say things like "mmmhm!" and "you got that right!".

It'll be like last time. Romney wins in landslides when he and Paul are alone, so Paul drops out and Romney wins.

Given that we had approximately a full month of people being "exposed" to Paul's platform between December and January, I'd say the whiner's protests are, shall we say, el bullshito.

No, we really haven't.

We've had Paul whine on, and very little MEDIA scrutiny of the Paul platform. So as a general view the public's perception of Paul is very VERY superficial.

It's kind of cute how the Paulites are getting a half-mongrel (google it) on the idea that their agenda is popular... when it really, really isn't.

Actually, we had a full month of the entire media essentially running their networks as nonstop attack ads against Ron Paul, and have found that his support has only increased.

Mmmhm.

But seriously, this. The idea that there's some great, silent, Paulite majority in the United States. Someone running on a genuinely extremist platform is not going to do well. It's not rocket science, folks.

Attacking Ron Paul for the newsletters is far different from attacking him on his platform.

Yeah. Paul writing (or whatever, getting them ghostwritten) those newsletters already means he'd lose in a landslide. Imagine if Romney had the same scandal in his past, for example.

Add the newsletter thing to a political platform a thousand miles out of the mainstream and you've got the recipe for Paul as the GOP candidate carrying three or four states at best.

Ron Paul will be mercilessly attacked as anti-military. Never mind this chart.

True.

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!
