As for the latter, polls have proven themselves to be less and less valuable these days for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that often they are conducted over the phone so that only those with a traditional landline will be respondents. That skews such polling right off the bat because it represents a cohort that is not a fair sampling by virtue of the diminishing sampling range as more and more people migrate to mobile phones and VoIP (e.g. Skype). In short, polling these days has become what climate science has become these days: untrustworthy. It is very easy and lucrative to make the data match your conclusion rather than the other way around.
Do you believe in AGW too?
I personally think that is unfair. There are those on our side that give Palin equal or greater hero worship and that's ok? I should probably remind you and everyone that Ron Paul's "Revolution" was the catalyst for the Tea Party movement in case have you've forgotten or revised its history in your mind.
While I think that if a Paulite(s) starts acting like an Amway representative here, they deserve ever bit of scorn y'all wanna throw their way. However, to not allow Libertarians or Paulian Republicans to have a place at the table of ideas is as foolish as it is forgetful. I'm just sayin'.
In short, and as I have stated before, Paul is as flawed in his dream of resurrecting the past as he imagines it as Obama is of creating the future in his own image.
