Erm, the link is quoting the same "internal polling" pushed by Peden's website.

In other words, it's bogus.

Not that we shouldn't see to that he wins it again.

That article was also... blatantly bias. More so than the average media spin. It actually succeeded in enraging me.

I am fairly certain that it is BS.

Like it's up to us?

He now has 10x his opponent's money -- the rest will be determined by whether he has a competent campaign staff.

Which (if the Presidential campaign is any indication) means he's screwed.

How many times are we going to see this same BS be posted here?

The 43-32 thing is FAKE! It originated from a blogspot site that said Paul was dropping his presidential bid on February 13. Did that happen? That was picked up by another minor blog, that added the fake internal poll. Then Pajamas media, Lone Star Times and this reported on it.

It's not true. Stop with the 43-32 crap.

Seriously. How many times are people going to post this and pass it off as fresh?

To be fair, this isn't Peden. It's a bunch on neocon blogs. Peden himself disputed the 43-32 numbers in an interview with Pajamas Media.

Peden is NOT leading Dr. Paul in this race. In fact, most voters still don't even know who Peden is. How do I know this? Because I am Ron Paul's campaign manager and I have personally overseen 4 different political surveys in district 14 in recent weeks. All 4 surveys have shown the same results: Ron Paul has a high favorable rating and high marks on his job approval. And if the election were held today, 60+ percent of the GOP voters say they would vote to reelect Ron Paul, while only 18-20% chose Peden. The remaining 20% or so say they are undecided or refuse to give an answer to these scientific and statistically accurate surveys.

Has anyone seen this? It's from the houston chronicle website (comments on a Peden piece)

I hate to dash the spirits of what few Peden supporters exist out there, but the desperate propaganda being promoted by the Peden campaign on how well Peden is doing in the polls is no where near reality. Peden is NOT leading Dr. Paul in this race. In fact, most voters still don't even know who Peden is. How do I know this? Because I am Ron Paul's campaign manager and I have personally overseen 4 different political surveys in district 14 in recent weeks. All 4 surveys have shown the same results: Ron Paul has a high favorable rating and high marks on his job approval. And if the election were held today, 60+ percent of the GOP voters say they would vote to reelect Ron Paul, while only 18-20% chose Peden. The remaining 20% or so say they are undecided or refuse to give an answer to these scientific and statistically accurate surveys.

For those who follow the Ron Paul congressional campaigns you will remember that Shane Sklar, Dr. Paul's Democrat opponent pulled this same kind of deceptive game toward the end of his campaign, putting out press statements saying he had polls claiming his was tied with or even ahead of Ron Paul.

For example:
Burnt Orange Report::: TX-14: Shane Sklar Can Beat Ron Paul
Shane Sklar leads Ron Paul 54-30% in an informed Congressional vote.

And let me see now...Sklar got beat by Ron Paul by how much? This press clip may jog your memory of the election outcome...

Ron Paul .... defeated Democratic rancher Shane Sklar with 60 percent of the vote. ...

So, those of you who believe Peden's supposed lead in the polls should really place some bets on this one...BIG bets. And then when Peden, who is still virtually unknown to the voters and has almost no money in his campaign, (other than what he has loaned himself) loses the election and you lose a lot of money...then, maybe, reality might become a little more clear.

Just presenting the facts to help provide a little political reality check.

Oh, and BTW, Ron Paul can not and will not access money he has raised for his presidential race for use in his congressional campaign. It is not allowed under federal election rules. But then again, he doesn't need to, because his congressional campaign has raised over $1 million dollars over the past two weeks. Check it out at:
