MSNBC keeps reporting that "Ron Paul won the debate, at least according to you."

And then they mention the text poll results. I've never seen anything like it. I've heard that 4-5 times in the last hour or so.

So, is there a new strategy here to pacify Paul supporters before Super Tuesday? I find it a little hard to believe that they've finally decided he's worth mentioning.

Are they just trying to pump their own poll thinking that all of the Paul supporters have already voted? Or what?

I also thought they were a little hard on the other candidates last night, compared to usual.


-------------------------- edit

They keep mentioning that voting is still open.

Here's a link to voting instructions.

Yes, MSNBC continues to show Paul as the winner of their "text your vote" poll for who won last nights debate. They literally said his name several times and showed his face, and ONLY his face for like 20 seconds.

They've aired it at-least every half hour so far this morning.

Ron Paul 43%
Mitt Romney 40%
Huckabee 8%

Please text the number (4) to 622639 to vote for Ron Paul

They just mentioned Paul in the lead again, followed by Romney, and they said all others were in singal digits. They showed Pauls picture for about 5 seconds. :D

I'm optimistic that Paul is beginning to really turn the tide on this race. Everyone understands that the race will boil down to Paul vs. one other and that will probably be Romney. Right or wrong I don't think a large number of the Republican base will vote Romney after it comes down to two. I'm not predicting Paul will win but he will have some pull at the convention if he doesn't go third party.

Yes they did! This is good stuff. Especially on a day when they are analyzing all the personal attacks and half-truths of the debate.

It's like McCain, lie, Guiliani, lie, Romney slams Hillary.... Ron Paul Wins Debate!

I agree. Last night, although limited airtime, really set him apart from the others in a very clear way. It was most apparent during the war question.

Compared to every other debate I've ever seen, yes. They usually get softball questions while Paul's questions are only meant to disredit him in some way. This was different. So, that leaves me wondering what's going on.

Imo their goal was to poke fun at the Repubs and point out their flaws while marginalizing Paul. They are pro-Dem. Both sides know Paul is a threat to the status quo.

MSNBC is continuing to run this debate poll to get people who did not watch the debate to vote for someone other than Ron Paul!
We must continue to vote for Ron Paul to keep him in the lead.

Did anyone else have trouble voting?
When I try to vote on my cell phone it says unable to send.
I was able to vote on the Faux debate, but not apparently on the MSNBC debate.

I believe it is so they cannot track back to this forum and thus accuse anyone of spamming... although that isn't the case.

OMG I think the sky is falling !!! MSNBC has been mentioned Paul all day.

Just now they interviewed Huckabee and quoted Paul's comments from the debate last night regarding fiscal responsibility. The host then said to Huckabee, you two pretty much share the same opinion. And Huckabee said they were both very similar on that issue.

But the bright side, is they did not preface the conversation with "The Maverick Paul", the "Isolationist Paul".

OK guys you can stop messing around.

In reality they quickly show a pie chart with 42% missing and no name next to it, Followed by Romney at 40% in between their interviews with Giuliani, right?

Thank for the info!

Me thinks the rich masses are starting to realize what many of the suffering middle class has already realized about RP. Now comes the time for the MSM to align themselves behind the movement!

I hear you on that. I'm not so quick to jump on the "msnbc or cnn is our friend" bruhaha. It's all very methodical....enough to make you go hmmmmm.

What I find most amazing, is that Paul is voted the winner DESPITE receiving only a sliver of talking time. Perhaps folks would like to hear him speak...
