Ignored by the Media: 3rd Place in National Polls
John Thorpe in the San Francisco Chronicle summarizes the lack of attention given to Ron Paul despite his amazing show in national polling:
Ignored by the media and dismissed by the Republican Party in general, liberty-minded Congressman Ron Paul leaped into third place today in the Gallup Presidential Nomination preference poll. Paul jumped over Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party darling/lunatic, relegating her to fourth-place in the current poll. Here’s how the numbers shake out today.
- Rick Perry, Texas Governor: 29%
- Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts Governor: 17%
- Ron Paul, Texas Congressman: 13%
- Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Congresswoman: 10%
That’s right. Ron Paul jumped into third place…and the media continues to ignore his candidacy. I can’t explain it as anything other than outright bias against the man and his ideas.
