Yeah its another poll leaving out some candidates and of course Paul is one. There aren't that many votes so if everyone on here goes and votes "other" should start winning.

Btw, I just saw a zogby poll that had Paul, Thompson, and Giuliani tied for the lead in Iowa. I found Thompson and Giuliani being up there very strange, not Huckabee or Romney like it seems the reality is, but at least it was showing Paul as one of the top people.

Here's the link for the poll:

Huckabee is soaring in this poll that excludes Dr. Paul.

Voted "other".

The broken link doesn't work for me. I can see why people want to break the links in some cases, but in my opinion breaking a link on a AOL poll isn't one of them.

yes....it is at the bottom but its't broken so AOL can't track this website and blaim us for "stacking" the polls.

just connect the H and T when you copy/paste the link.

Did anyone else notice this further down the page?


Obama, Clinton and Edwards played nice. Huckabee made good on a promise to clean up his act, the day after he held a news conference to say he wouldn't run a critical ad against Romney - but then showed it to a room full of reporters and cameramen.

"It does remind you a bit of a person who stands up and says 'I'm not going to call my opponent any names, but here are the names I'd call him if I were going to call him names,"' Romney told reporters in Johnston.

With two days left in the campaign, Romney continued his ads against Huckabee. He also assailed Huckabee's defense of his own failure to read the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran last month.

"President Bush didn't read it for four years; I don't know why I should read it in four hours," Huckabee said in an interview published Monday in the Mason City Globe Gazette.

Interesting, isn't it?

Link?

I saw the poll showing Thompson, Giuliani, and Paul tied for the lead in Iowa from Zogby on CSPAN earlier, so I don't have a link for you. I'm not sure exactly what the deal with it was though, something just didn't seem normal to me, like it was something about the caucus system that makes no sense to me really lol. I just thought it was good it had Paul tied for the lead.

Also if anyone has not voted in the AOL straw poll be sure to do that as well, because Hitlerbee has taken back the southern states once again, and McCain has taken I think Wyoming lol? But I'm sure he will lose that one shortly.

If you are not planning to vote in the state you live in I suggest you vote in Iowa or SC since Paul is tied basically in those important states.

But I think you should vote in the state you actually live in.

Here's the link for that:

Ha "Other" is now beating McCain!

I think these poll options for "Other" need to get more creative with their titles. Why not something like "Some guy that probably can't win" or "Some random person" or "Someone thats not one of the people above but we couldn't figure out who it is," or my favorite idea "Some person we don't want to win."
