Shocker! Ron Paul Voters Suspected of Stuffing Straw Poll Ballot Box

Really, what election cycle would be complete without reports that the Ron Pauliens stacked the deck in another poll? It doesn't matter if it's an online poll, straw poll, or any other kind of poll. You can bet that if Ron Paul's name is on it, his supporters will vote as often as the system will let them. It's as if they so desperately want him to win an election that they think he'll be able to do it through straw poll osmosis. Remember, many of the Pauliens are 9/11 Truthers so we can only guess what their motivations are but it seems to be that if they think straw poll ballot boxes get stuffed enough, others will take notice and give Paul more credibility. The problem is that the Pauliens' reputation precedes them to the point that they've actually torpedoed any credibility they would deserve if Ron Paul truly did well.

Via CBS News:
Rep. Ron Paul scored a decisive victory Saturday in a mock presidential election at the Values Voter Summit, trouncing fellow Texan, Gov. Rick Perry, but an organizer of the straw poll suggested ballot-stuffing may have skewed the results.

In a press conference following the announcement of the straw poll results at the annual Washington gathering of social conservatives, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins all but dismissed the results as irrelevant, citing 600 people who registered Saturday morning and, he said, "left after Ron Paul spoke."

A total of 1,983 ballots were cast. "You do the math," Perkins said.

A year ago in the same contest, Paul came in second-to-last. Speaking briefly with reporters before the straw poll results were announced, the Republican lawmaker said, "If I win, it wouldn't be as important to the media than if I lose."

Paul has a history of scoring unlooked-for straw poll wins by packing the electorate with diehard supporters. But Perkins said it's too early to take much away from Paul's win. "Let me just take you back four years to this event, when we had a straw poll. Mitt Romney won that straw poll," he said. "I think people are still in the process of deciding where they want to go."

Paul got 37 percent of the vote. The rest of the ballots showed how widely social conservatives support is splintered among the rest of the field.
We take calls from Pauliens and they truly have a one-track mind. It's truly fascinating to witness but it's like dealing with aggressive flies. They so desperately want to recruit you to their side that they're willing to incessantly pester you until you take the leap. Unfortunately for them, their tactics have the opposite effect. They make you reach for the fly swatter.
