USA Daily reports that Fox News and the Iowa GOP are trying to exclude candidates polling below 5% from the December 4 debates in Iowa.
I’m not sure whose poll they are using for this, but I’m a little suspicious of the polling process to begin with. Wouldn’t it make more sense if polls were based on the respondant’s ability to actually name 5 people who are running for President? Or what if they only counted the people who were actually planning on watching the debate–by the phone in polls that follow them, Ron Paul clearly has support.
Then there’s this…
Ironically, according to Google Trends, Ron Paulâ€™s name is actually searched more than Fox News is now. There is a growing concern among Paul supporters that corporate media outlets are attempting to manipulate the presidential election.
I think many have had this concern for a long time.
