View Full Version : Change donation total on front page?

01-01-2008, 11:34 AM

I just sent out a comment to the ronpaul2008 site people that they should look into changing the donation total on the front page to a different measure - either as a daily total, the past week, month, etc. My reasoning is assuming Paul places third or better in Iowa, there will be 'coverage' about him. If the news orgs see the counter on the front page at $60-70k for the quarter, they will all grab that screenshot and use it to skew coverage negatively. However, if it shows this week's total, for example, of $400-500k, it would portray him in a stronger light. What do you guys think?

I wouldnt worry about it. The tally is quarter-by-quarter so I can't see a low # hurting Paul.

yeah, if there is anything the mainstream media says positively about Paul, it's the money he's raised.

They will talk about how he raised 6 million in one day and 19.5 million for the quarter, don't worry about that.
