NIA Declares Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Front-Runner
The National Inflation Association (NIA) today officially declared Ron Paul the front-runner to win the upcoming 2012 presidential election. NIA is very pleased that Ron Paul won the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll of who attendees want to receive the GOP nomination to run for President in 2012. This is the second year in a row that Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll. He received 30% of the vote compared to Mitt Romney, who came in second with 23%. Sarah Palin received only 3% of the vote. 3,742 total people voted in the straw poll, which was twice as much as four years ago.
It is funny how when Ron Paul wins the straw poll, CPAC organizers are sure to say right before the results are read that, “It’s not a Gallup poll.” However, if it was Mitt Romney winning the straw poll, they would say no such thing. This reminds us of the mainstream media’s all out efforts to marginalize Ron Paul during the 2008 election season. Every time the GOP candidates would have a televised debate, FOX News would have a text message poll where viewers can send a text to vote on who they thought won the debate. Whenever Ron Paul would perform favorably in these FOX News text message polls and receive a large percentage of the text message vote, FOX News would unbelievably make up excuses to try and discredit their own polling technology!
After a GOP candidate debate on May 15th, 2007, FOX News conducted one of these text message polls on who won the debate. In this particular instance, Ron Paul didn’t even win the text message vote. Mitt Romney won with 29% and Ron Paul came in a close second with a respectable 25%. However, even when finishing in second place, FOX News felt the need to say, “How is Ron Paul’s numbers so high? We’ve had so many emailers say that clearly some online communities are messing with the outcome.” (While one FOX News host was saying this, the other one was saying “absolutely” in the background.)
Please see the NIA blog for a video we just posted of this incidence, as well as a video we posted of how FOX News worked overtime to try to downplay and discredit Ron Paul’s 2010 CPAC straw poll win. We also posted a video from this year’s CPAC showing the ignorant comments of Donald Trump, who claims Ron Paul can’t get elected. (How many elections has Donald Trump won? Ron Paul has been elected to Congress eleven times.)
NIA believes that Ron Paul’s beliefs reflect the majority of educated Americans. In our opinion, Ron Paul’s CPAC straw poll win two years in a row is very significant and suggests that our country is ready to move away from the Republican establishment that acts exactly like Democrats once in power. Mitt Romney is a part of the Republican establishment that has bankrupted our nation and put it on the brink of hyperinflation. Ron Paul is the only real candidate who would implement real change.
