Forum Post: Polling Challenge: Do It Yourself

Go to a local mall, then the grocery store, then someplace recreational.

Ask the people if they will vote, who they will vote for, and then if they could pick anyone, who will it be. The only consistent two answers you will get are Obama and Ron Paul.

These polls are a total fraud. There is no way that the only guy that is having great turnouts for speaking engagements and debates (his supporters outnumbered ALL OTHERS COMBINED at USF) is finishing dead last.

It would be like a guy selling out stadiums for concerts, the rest are shitty bar bands, but all the polls put the stadium guy DEAD LAST in favorite band. It just doesnt make sense.

Kind of reminds me of Clinton's second run. Hugely popular according to the polls, 80% among some female demographics if I recall, and yet I couldn't find a single person that said they were going to vote for him.

If people would take the time to go poll for themselves they would realize this. But it is a lot to ask, I mean most people dont have a couple days to go and hang out and ask question, I understand that.

But it is very frustrating, I mean Ron Paul is killing it in the R race, and yet he finishes last in teh polls and primaries. Ive seen it with my own eyes, he is not last, not even close.

He's a shining example of what you're talking about. I've never believed for a minute the numbers they've been showing with Paul a distant last. No effin way. He's too popular, or was when this thing first started.

the republican election seems fixed

I agree. I had no opinion of RP early on (wasn't familiar with his platform), but his apparent popularity and the poll numbers seemed wildly out of sync.

it's like the other republicans hardly had names

Yeah, and I thought it crazy that on some of the MSM channels, they would completely gloss over RP like he wasn't even there. Talk about a bias!

people were upset when they heard Ron Paul was going to deregulate everything

I'd rather business ran with transparent books at least those that promote the general welfare

I agree. Absolutely.

Its a total fraud in order to keep Obama in there, but give the people the illusion of choices. It is very disappointing.
