View Full Version : Why Ron Paul Magically JUMPS Up In Polls Right Before Elections

IMO there are 2 possibilities for why he magically jumps to ~10 percent right before every election.

1. All the national polls are rigged. I don't buy it. Too much consistency. IMO there are many left out because they're calling only republicans, but they're ballpark accurate.

2. All the activity in the last week or so before election.

What I want to see happen is that level of fervor that happens in the last week happening BEFORE the last week. For instance in my state we have nearly a month. If we made out big push starting now that could net 2, 3, 4 times as many voters on election day. Paul convertees tend to go nuts and try to convert everyone they know.

SO what I think we need to do is send out a "Call To Arms" mentioning this little fact to all the meetups. We NEED to get as many people out NOW as we can, while we still have time. If you put in the above fact AND that fact that we had 22K double confirmed voters in Iowa MAYBE it will encourage people to actually get active. If anywhere close to HALF of the people in our 700+ person meetup got active, instead of 50-75 here and there, we would be KILLING right now. Same goes for EVERY OTHER MEETUP.

I'm going to get the leader of our big meetup to send one out ASAP, all of you need to do the same. Maybe I'll post a spiel and we can edit it together as a big happy family so we can all use the same one! In addition to that I feel the national campaign MUST send out a similar letter telling everyone who hasn't to join a meetup in their area and get active. Tell them: "What's harder giving up a few days, or living in a freedomless socialist government for the rest of your life???" IMO the Captain position is too daunting for people, but going with "Hey d00d just show up and like do some stuff, it'll be rad!!!" angle would net many more responses.

Stuff along those lines WOULD jolt some more people into action. Even if it doesn't get ALL, or HALF, or a QUARTER of them out anything would help.

Thoughts? Will anyone post it to their meetup if I(we) write such a message? IMO THIS could win it for us alone IF we can slap enough people in the face and get them on the streets.

Send out DVD's so people have time to watch them now.

Perhaps it's because many of the "undecideds" finally decide just before the elections.

Undoubtedly that has something to do with it, but I think the fact that that's when everyone makes their "big push" is a much bigger factor.
