    You are taking the quote out of context. You left out the J. Edgar Hoover part.

    “Yeah… The Kennedy family can do nothing wrong… And please ignore that MLK2 was a Republican…”

    MLK had lots of flaws. Hung around communists. Despite being a “man of god” ran around constantly on his wife. His cause was just,but he was no angel.

    Setnaffa and Chicago Conservative are both correct.

    Harris poll: Ron Paul bests Obama. Rick Perry loses to Obama.

    Paul 51 percent
    Obama 49 percent.

    I can’t see a picture of Glen Rice without thinking, “You know, that man is hot!”

    Harris poll: Ron Paul bests Obama

    Hey Acroso, I wouldn’t tout those paid online scam polls like Harris as a source

    They’re known scams and ripoffs. The demographics they target are not reliable to predict anything (except perhaps how naïve some people can be)

    Google: harris poll scam ripoff

    Where do Gallup and Rasmussen have Ron Paul?
    They’d give you a bit more reliable data at this point (which is still very early)

    :mrgreen:

    Steve

    See RCP average if you like. He does fine.

  11. Steve on September 27, 2011 at 11:50 am

    Here you go Acroso…

    Tuesday, September 27th, 2011
    “A month ago, they were neck-and-neck. Now President Obama has a 10-point lead over Texas Congressman Ron Paul in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds that Obama earns 44% support to Paul’s 34%.

    That seems a bit more realistic after Paul said he would not build a border fence. Paul had some very good answers on the others measures to fight against illegal immigration (like attacking their benefits), but those opposed to building a border fence are also opposed to stopping the very real invasion of illegal foreign trespassers. It works out that way every single time.

    Sorry dude, but Paul needs to get a lot stronger on illegal immigration, or he will go down in flames alongside Rino McPerry. That’s just the way it is. People are finally fed up with squish pols who will not do “whatever it takes” to stop it.

    Later…
    :cool:

    Steve, See RCP average if you like. He does fine.

    I did, Acroso — see for yourself…
    The RCP average shows 0bama beats Paul in every poll

    What RCP average are you looking at??
    :neutral:

  13. invalid10 on September 27, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    Steve- look at the other candidates though. Paul does better except for Romney who loses by 2.7%

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/president_obama_vs_republican_candidates.html

    Paul down by 3.5% to Obama on RCP averages.
    Perry down 7.5% to Obama on RCP averages.
    Cain down by 10% against Obama on RCP averages.
    Bachmann down 14.6% to Oba,a

  14. Steve on September 27, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    Acroso, I’m not trying to throw stones at your candidate, Paul :neutral:

    If Paul could finally get himself straight on foreign policy and on aggressively doing “whatever it takes” to fight against illegal immigration, then many of us might take a hard second look at him. So please don’t shoot the messenger for what I’m about to say here, okay??

    Here’s cold reality for those RCP averages for the next several months:

    There are ONLY 2 people on RCP’s average that matter.
    …Let me say it another way…
    With the exception of 2 people, those numbers are meaningless.

    And, those two (2) people are Mitt Romney and Ron Paul
    …Why?

    Because ONLY Mitt Romney and Paul ran in 2008 and they both have had almost 4 long years for the American voters to get to know them, and known their policies, on an almost intimate basis. They’ve been in the spotlight.

    But NOBODY else you mentioned on the RCP average ran in 2008, so their averages are going to remain meaningless until the American public has a much better understanding of them through debates, interviews, blogs, advertisements, etc. etc. etc. Their numbers will be way different in 6 months. Some for the better — and some for the worse, but they’ll all be different.

    I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney, but he took his 4 years and grew his numbers
    Ron Paul had the same 4 years to grow his momentum. So, what happened?

    Ron Paul wasn’t doing too badly against 0bama there for a while but then he just SANK 10 POINTS in Rasmussen as I quoted above. Why???

    Again, my best guess is what I said earlier:
    His falloff …seems a bit more realistic after Paul said he would not build a border fence. Paul had some very good answers on the others measures to fight against illegal immigration (like attacking their benefits), but those opposed to building a border fence are also opposed to stopping the very real invasion of illegal foreign trespassers. It works out that way every single time.

    So like I said, Paul needs to get a lot stronger on illegal immigration, or he will go down in flames alongside Rino McPerry. American voters are truly fed up with squish politicians who will not do “whatever it takes” to stop the illegals.

    …over and out
    :cool:

    Steve- there is variance in any one poll, and they all use slightly different methods and samples.

    Your analysis reminds me of Huntsmans proclaiming two days ago that he was “tied for second in NH with Ron Paul” when in fact he is tied for fourth in the RCP average.

    He was looking at just one poll (and he was third in not tied for second)

  16. invalid10 on September 27, 2011 at 1:15 pm
  17. invalid10 on September 27, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    And that 9/21/11 Rasmussen poll went up around the time Huntsman was saying that although I doubt it matter much other than bumping Perry in NH.

  18. Steve on September 27, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    Like I said Acroso, …don’t shoot the messenger

    From your own list, ONLY Mitt Romney and Ron Paul ran in 2008
    …They’ve both had about 4 years to gain ground
    So it’s logical that ONLY Romney and Paul’s RCP avg’s have any cred.

    The RCP avg’s are utterly meaningless for all the other newcomers until the American public has a much better understanding of them through debates, interviews, blogs, advertisements, etc. You know this is true. By early next year, everyone can begin to make some fair comparisons about the newbies

    …until then, it’s anybody’s game, but Romney and Paul’s polls do have more cred than the others because they’ve been running for POTUS a lot longer

    You know how this stuff works…
    :cool:

    Well sooner actually, but you get the point.

    Ron Paul has a better chance at winning Miss Universe.

    Same with Newt.

  21. unclefred on September 27, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    Actually Newt has a much better chance of winning Miss Universe than Ron Paul.

    Despite the humor, Paul is as far as he is going to go., nowhere. Newt on the other hand is, rather remarkably, gaining his second wind and some traction.

    People it is a LONG time to the first primary. Cain, Newt, maybe Santorum could find enough traction to be the nominee. Bachmann is in implosion mode, maybe she can turn it around but it is hard to see how. Romney has been running for four years and hasn’t come close to closing the deal. Perry has made some missteps is at least for now flailing. Hard to see how Huntsman or Johnson get out of single digits, but you can’t count even them out. There are still people in the wings who may get in.

    Something like 100 million people will vote in 2012. Maybe 5-7 million have seen one or more of the debates. Like I said, a long way to go…
