    The straw polls from one county? What's next? A straw poll of Rudy's ex wives? Paul's children? Tancredo's neighbors? All the people Huckabee baptized? :laugh:

    I look forward to discussing the legitimate and meaningful polls/primaries/debates - if we get the chance to.

    I understand. Every poll Ron Paul wins is illegitimate and lacking of meaning.

    P.S. We're not just the internet.

    No one said that. But a poll taken at a county GOP picnic? Come on.

    Maybe Dr. Paul will win something meaningful. No one has yet.

    Straw polls mean very little. Did Mitt Romney's "win" in Iowa's SP and Illinois's SP have any effect? Those are statewide. Did Huckabee's 2nd place in Iowa do anything other than stir the talking heads?

    I know I'm going to draw your ire because I think for myself and haven't guzzled any candidate's Kool Aid yet, but so be it :thumbs: I can appreciate your support for Paul, but posting a picnic straw poll as something on the level of a state straw poll is reaching to an effect that Inspector Gadget would envy

    Like I said: The straw polls from one county? What's next? A straw poll of Rudy's ex wives? John Edwards's hair dressers? :laugh:
