    I am in agreement with geek. I just do not see anywhere near the support for Ron Paul that readily scammed polls show.

    Who would have thought Howard Dean would manage to come so far last time around.

    One problem with Ron Paul is that his message is very difficult to compress into a 30 second sound bite. Many of his supporters have focused on his opposition to the war thinking that will draw in those opposed to the war. I just do not see that happening. Much of the anti-war sentiment is really barely disguised Bush hating from the far left. Does not mean there is no anti-war sentiment outside that group, but the serious anti-war crowd will never vote for anyone who is not at the very least a committed socialist.

    Spam or Support?

    So what do you mean by spamming? A lot of people going to a site and voting? Ron Paul has a lot of support out there, that's just the way it is. A lot of us who never cared to speak up are now bringing up Dr. Paul to even total strangers when the topic of politics comes up. Today at the Cigar shop the casher said something about Bush and my friend and I mentioned Ron Paul, "who is that?" she asked so I gave her one of the cards I had made with www.ronpaul2008.com on it and "WALLA!" It peaked her interest and tonight that lady might go home and check him out. Maybe after she becomes a supporter she might vote on one of these polls. Maybe what Dr. Paul has to say and his stance on the issues might line up with hers and she just might actually vote for the man. Better yet she might turn a few friends or family on to him.

    How is this Spamming? It sounds more like support. The flow of information works very different than it did eight and even four years ago.

    But yeah spamming seems like an easy cop-out to me.
