The mainstream media began by pretending he didn’t exist; when that didn’t work, they began to say he has an unpopular message or tried to brand him as a racist. Now, they simply lie about GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul’s success in the 2012 primary season.
Paul recently mused about the fact that he draws crowds of thousands of supporters and his fellow candidates routinely draw only a couple hundred at best.
“Quite frankly I don’t think the other candidates get crowds like this, and we get them constantly” Paul said, after an event in Missouri.
Paul said he has a hard time understanding how the crowds he draws — especially in comparison to those of his fellow candidates — don’t equate to popular vote victories. The candidate stopped short of alleging voting fraud on the part of the GOP because he said he had no proof.
The candidate secured his first caucus victory over the weekend, winning 29 percent of the popular vote among the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands. The media, however, claimed that Mitt Romney actually won the contest because he stands to come away with more delegates.
Curiously, the Paul campaign has pointed out that the popular vote does not always reflect the number of delegates obtained in each State that has already held a caucus or primary. Only when Paul won the popular vote in the territory did the media change how it reported the results.
The Republican Party of the U.S. Virgin Islands reported the results as 112 to Paul (29 percent), 101 to Romney (26 percent), 23 to Santorum (6 percent) and 18 to Gingrich (5 percent).
