Ron Paul Frightens the Elite Because He is Right

...because he can't win and all that nonsense -

The principal organizer of the Values Voters Summit derided his own group’s straw poll as irrelevant after Ron Paul won, dismissing the results as not being “truly reflective of where values voters stand.”

Despite Family Research Council President Tony Perkins telling CBS News that the organization prevented campaigns from buying blocks of tickets for the event, Perkins still “dismissed the results as irrelevant, citing 600 people who registered Saturday morning and, he said, “left after Ron Paul spoke.”

Congressman Paul won the straw poll after he received 37 per cent of the vote, but Perkins described the result as an “outlier”.

Even in the course of deriding the accuracy of the poll, Perkins still found time to praise former Kansas City Federal Reserve director Herman Cain, saying there was “something to be said about his results” and his “strong” second place finish.
The Real Effect
Let's see, the poll results are thrown out because of which of the following A) The poll was rigged B) There was some sort of discrepancy that required the results be dismissed C) The people disagree with the candidate's positions?

A poll is supposed to reflect the opinions of the individuals that are polled, not that of the organizer. That latter would be more properly classified as propaganda.

At least we're not like those dreaded Soviets, telling the people who to vote for and all that...
