Definitely time for a Reboot.

So says the Father of Podcasting, Adam Curry, after falling under the spell of liberty cast by Presidential Candidate Ron Paul.

eh, About those media "polls"

There's been a lot of discussion on why Ron Paul, with all of his obvious Internet popularity, is only polling in the single digits nationwide. Various theories have been presented, such as "pollsters don't call cell phones, and Ron Paul's followers don't use landlines," and "much of Ron Paul's support comes from first-time voters."

The mainstream uses the single-digit poll results to support their claim that "Ron Paul doesn't stand a chance," and use them as ammunition for excluding him from debates or coverage. But just how "scientific" are those polling methods?

...

..[these] polls use only "Republicans who voted in the last Presidential Primary." (link)

Well, how about that. How many republicans do you know who went and voted in the 2004 GOP presidential primaries, since the only candidate running for the GOP nomination was incumbent President Bush? Hmmmm? According to USAToday, Republican turnout in the 2004 primary was a whopping 6.6%! These scientific, professional media polls are based on a sampling of people taken from only 6.6% of the registered republicans from 2004!

As the original author says,
Think about that. The mainstream press is using this handful of people who voted for George W. Bush--when he was running unopposed!--as their "statistically significant" sample of concerned American voters. The political analysts are basing their election predictions, and their professional careers, on a random and biased telephone survey of a few hundred people who bothered to show up when their "fearless leader" wasn't being challenged by anyone.

Ron Paul Donations in Georgia, Q3 2007


Here is a graphic illustrating the areas of the state from which Georgia's Ron Paul campaign contributions originated for Third Quarter, 2007. To compare this with Georgia's Q2 donations, see my previous post.

Below is a breakdown of totals by county (based on zip codes per FEC filings). New zip codes since Q2 are located in the counties shown in orange font, bringing in $36,432.54 from these new areas, nearly as much as all of Georgia in the 2nd quarter ($36,843).

Total from Georgia for Ron Paul, Q3 2007: $72,743.54. Good Job, Georgia!

An important note to make about all of these grassroots donations: donations under $200 are not included in the FEC reports, and thus the numbers represented above do not capture the entire picture. Many of us only gave $25-100 in the third quarter, and our donations are not included in the totals above. Once our donations reach $200 each for this campaign cycle, the numbers will show up in the total reports.
