Ron Paul Wins Debates!!!

Ron Paul won both Republican debates by a substantial margin, but he isn't being spoken of as the winner of the debates on ANY of the news programs I have seen this morning or in any of the major news outlets. Ron Paul's 39% with the next closest contender at 9% in the MSNBC polls after the MSNBC debates was attributed to the viewership of MSNBC wanting to skew the numbers of the debate. This time the debate was on Fox News and Ron Paul's 30% in the Fox News poll is being attributed to Mr. Paul's ability to mobilize his supporters to vote in the polls.

Fox News Results:


Ron won the Vote.com poll. As of 7:50 am the results are as follows:
SAM BROWNBACK (15)

(1%)
JIM GILMORE (7)

(0%)
RUDY GIULIANI (310)

(15%)
MIKE HUCKABEE (43)

(2%)
DUNCAN HUNTER (72)

(3%)
JOHN MCCAIN (41)

(2%)
RON PAUL (1,226)

(60%)
MITT ROMNEY (244)

(12%)
TOM TANCREDO (86)

(4%)
TOMMY THOMPSON (16)

(1%)

The MSNBC poll as of 7:52 this morning has Ron Paul at 55%, Mitt Romney 24% and Giuliani at 19% as the leaders.

He also won the World Net Daily poll with 32% at the time this was written.

FOX listed McCain and Giuliani as the winners in their latest reports:
"The latest survey by respected Republican pollster Whit Ayers, who is unaligned with any campaign, shows McCain at 25 percent, leading Giuliani by 5 points. The poll has a 4.4 percent margin of error. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is in fifth place at 8 percent and behind two men — former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich — who aren't even in the race."
FOX "News" only mentions Paul as an afterthought and doesn't mention him as a serious contender. Most major news source stories aren't discussing how he is whomping people in the debates, they are focused on making Mr. Paul a distant memory by casting his comments in the light of blaming the U.S. for being attacked on 9/11.
