HOT: "Error" on Poll Results Put Santorum Ahead of Ron Paul

Run Ron Paul reports:
With just days remaining until the all-important Republican Iowa caucuses, a left-leaning political newspaper based near the nation’s capital made a critical error in reporting the results of the final Des Moines Register opinion poll before voters gather Tuesday.

On Saturday evening Politico incorrectly reported that the poll showed former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum “climbing to second [place] at 21 percent and Ron Paul in third, with 18 percent.” In fact, Paul took second place with 22 percent of the vote. Santorum was third with 15 percent.

The faulty report was issued via email as a “Politico Breaking News” alert. Politico sent a second email shortly afterward with the correct poll results, stipulating that “[t]his breaking news alert corrects a previous breaking news alert...Phone messages left for four top Politico editors were not returned. A fifth, reached by phone, would not speak on the record but promised a return call from someone who would. No such call was received.

  1. My, this combined with MSNBC's typo that said that Paul thought Jim Crow laws were good for the country. It's too bad these accidents are happening now.

  17. and how does it matter how the population votes?
    He got some 38%, and in the counting, this was cheated down radically.
    Santorums rise above 8% just cannot be explained without fraud in the vote counting/reporting.

  18. Shut up Ron Paul delusionist.

    You should shut up being an ignorant of the genus Boobus Americanus. This silly demo/republican football game your playing is unresponsible.
    But being the brain washed breeder you are, you'll sit smug while your children/grand children are farmed and used for cannon fodder. You make me sick.

  20. Ron will win if he just continues letting the voters know what he stand for in America.

  21. People, do you think one 76 year old man will be allowed to defeat this system that has been entrenched for centuries if not millenia? Common, take responsibility here and stop putting everything on the shoulders of one old man. Stop voting and stop cooperating with this criminal establishment. Kennedy tried and they killed him. He was a WW2 vet and a much younger man. Decentralize everything. Democratize money and power by doing away with them. And don't substitute them with microchips. Freedom means the ability to use the land, water, air at no cost. That is freedom. Not this crooked system where you need to buy a permit for everything as if they own the world. That is our real fight, not whether we can have an old man in an office for 4 years.

  23. The amount of misinformation and disinformation these days is staggering. In my heart I know who really won the poll. Putting a weak Republican up against Obama will ensure a fix for Obama. The PTB spent too much time and money on this current Kenyan to let him fizzle out in 4 years, and they will be damned if Ron Paul ever sees the light of day, much to the chagrin of the average American. Cany you say bye-bye America?

  24. Yes, you can either say bye-bye America, or you can change it. You can vote the puppet Democrat or the puppet Republican, or you can change it.

    You can bitch all day, or you can change it.

    1. Change direct deposit to checks
    2. CASH checks (not deposit)
    3. Minimize ALL bank deposits
    4. Don't spend on demand!
    5. Barter, use cash, trade with friends.

    Stop feeding the hand that bites you. Stop benefiting the banks.

    Oh, and vote for Ron Paul.

  25. Call me a Paultard. Go ahead, I don't mind.
    Im gonna have the ear of the party chairs of the local GOP and DEM, and poll them both.
    I wonder who the Democrats would have rather have run against their incumbant?
    I'm all in on this one, even when he becomes president.
    And all you love peace and hair grease types that dont support Ron Paul are full of shit.

  26. To one of the Anonymous entries - Kennedy was shot because he wanted to stop payments of interest to the Federal Reserve on their currency creation fraud. The beast will be fed - no pun intended.
