View Full Version : Ever since Bachmann won the Iowa Straw Poll, she's dropped and Ron Paul's risen.

Not neat and clean but overall, this has happened over time.
Thoughts? I think the "Bachmann first, Pawlenty Third" meme by the media completely backfired. People were smart enough to see that Ron Paul tied for first. The lack of media coverage has made Ron Paul seem to be the underdog and getting unfair treatment (89 seconds another example), and some people, Stewart for example, have expressed this. The idea that if Ron Paul wins Iowa it "means nothing" has also been ripped apart by people like Gallager which has helped us too.

In other words, the media blackout worked in 2008, but this time around, it has clearly backfired!
