It's just a straw poll, but they use those to guage the wind of public opinion. At the very least, this demonstrates that Paul's message is indeed resonating with Americans.

Ron Paul. The choice of many New Hampshire picnickers in 2008.

It shows that his message is resonating with 182 New Hampshirans at a picnic.

Hey, maybe you have a point. In Ron Pauls's world, that's pretty close to a primary victory.

Are you saying that Ron Paul has cornered the picknic demographic or something?

I'm not all that interested in getting in a pissing match over it. Even if Ron Paul has only captured the picknicer Demographic in New Hampshire as you seem to be suggesting, at least he's winning over family oriented conservatives who are getting out and socializing. I can live with that.

Maybe you're right, though... After looking up their website, it turns out that the Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers (http://www.cnht.org/) is some fringe group who are for smaller government, lower taxes, and more freedom.

Freakin' whackos!

The ONE state I think Paul could win is NH. Buchanan did, even if it was all downhill from there. NH is very much a paleo-conservative stronghold and it has an active libertarian demographic. A key conservative in the NH legislature has already publicly endorsed him. If the Manchester-Union endorses him, and it could, it will give him another boost. Besides I'm hearin' that there are more than a few Paul posters and signs up already. I'm seein' a lot along the highway just south of me as well.

It would be my opinion that straw polls do nothing other than to give someone a woodie about their candidate. After November 2008 we will see.

No. I'm just belittling your opinion, as usual.

(BTW: It's not really important, but, "Picnic," "Picnicker." Not "Picknicer." It works like "Traffic" and "Trafficker." You have to use insert the "k" in the right place.)

No. He's being cute because he's being "schooled."

I'm confused. This is a poll of an advocacy group?
