So, McCain is in the red. By about 100,000 dollars.
Sure, he does have 1.8 million for his general election fund, but he’s still running in third place. And he’s got no money for upward mobility.
And onto Ron Paul and poll numbers.
I found this link over at lewrockwell.com and they make a pretty good case as to why Ron Paul is dominating the internet, but his poll numbers are still lacking (but rising… up to 5% in the latest gallup poll)
Most of the polls taken are of likely republican primary voters. Which mostly means, people who voted in the primaries for 2004.
Wanna know what voter turnout was like for the 2004 Republican Primaries. 6.6%
And there’s a reason for that obviously. GWB was running unopposed. There really wasn’t any reason to vote. The nomination was a lock.
But that means, in many of these polls, the couple percentage points that Ron Paul is getting are from people who went out of their way to vote for Bush in the primaries in 2004. Those, I would imagine, are part of the 35 percenters that still support this administration.
And when Ron Paul wins this election, Phil Wilson is gonna owe me dinner at J. Alexanders.
