Interesting Online Data Point–No One Has Much Command In The GOP Scramble

This means little more than the fact that Drudge’s server is working, but it may blunt some of the triumphal noises from Romney-land:
For a third of a million Drudge readers, I would expect the prohibitive favorite to at least pull one in three, if not two in five. But, like a mortally wounded SNL season, the blow must go on.

    The first question to ask, though, is how much do you trust the Ron Paul number.  And that’s ignoring how much you trust an online poll like this to begin with. 

    But given the way Ron Paul fans operate, I’d say that Romney is well within the 33-40% RPA (Ron Paul Adjusted) range.

    To flog the flogged horse of the post, the numbers just don’t mean much.

    Divide Paul’s number by 5, and the number is still suspiciously high.

    Paul’s numbers are high, and so are his supporters.

    At this point it looks like it will be Mittens and another 4 years of the Obummer and an LSD bad trip.

    Smitty, comparing this field to a bad SNL season isn’t fair. Even poor Jean Doumanian had Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo.
