Pasco straw poll winners: Ron Paul (prez) Adam Hasner (sen.)

Note to self and anyone else who cares: We're going to try to limit the straw poll stuff in the future to county executive committee straw polls and large tea party votes (sorry, Dems, Occupy Wall Street isn't into the straw-poll thing).

And so we come to the Pasco County straw poll, which we neglected to mention with the other two blogged about today. Pasco is a significant bellweather county for Republicans. Of the 279 The results for president [Note: Paulites reportedly skewed the results and came from all over, not just Pasco]:

Ron Paul 171 (61%)
Newt Gingrich 51 (18%)
Mitt Romney  30 (11%)
Rick Perry 14 (5%)
Rick Santorum  (6 2%)
Herman Cain 1 (0%)
Jon Huntsman 1 (0%)
Gary Johnson 1 (0%)

The Senate results (includes 53 undervote):

115 Adam Hasner – 51%

57 Connie Mack – 25%

18 Mike McCalister – 8%

11 Craig Miller – 4%

7 George LeMieux – 3%

It was a Florida straw poll. The results weren't skewed, anyone could've came. There were give or take 100 people there from Pasco that supported Ron Paul, so even if we didn't come from different counties he still would've won. It just wouldn't have been such an overwhelming landslide if we hadn't. No other candidates have as strong of support because they peddle the same old GOP establishment ideas that are going to continue driving this country into a irrevocable crater of debt.

Keep watching. Come January 31, "Paulites" will win another poll in Florida. Let's see, he wins one straw poll after another and you guys claim its because "Paulites" skewed the polls. He leads the polls in Iowa and you say his victory will invalidate the whols concept of a caucus. He is headed for a win in New Hampshire and its a fluke. When he takes Florida you'll come up with something else. Fortunately, when he wins the general election next year by a landslide, you just may get the point. We are really sick and tired of no-choice elections. Oh, and since the Obama election last time around, we really don't expect impartiality, honest journalism or basic human decency from the news media anymore either.

Note to ponder: Ron Paul has legions of supporters who spend their own money to sign up for straw polls. Ron Paul's supporters donate their money freely to his campaign fund (he doesn't have to rely on "super-PAC's" to campaign for him). Ron Paul's supporters knock on doors and make telephone calls at their own expense. That does not make us a "cult" of mindless minions. It means that a lot of people have looked at this election and have decided this year we are not electing yet another clone for president. After next election, America will not torture people anymore. America will not owe more money to foreign governments than we collect in a year. America will not bypass the constitution to pass laws that are more "expedient". In short, America will be America again. Ron Paul understands these things. America understands these things. After the next election, the media will also understand these things.
