Ron Paul Iowa And MySpace Poll Results

Dear Ron Paulers

Of some interest is the Ron Paul Iowa results and a very surprising MYSPACE result. And no I am not a Ron Paul supporter. Just being nice.

BTW: It is good to see Obama take first in the Democratic poll due to the fact as a black american first time senator promising change ( whatever that means) he is garnering votes from what is basically a white middle class voting base. While it is unlikely at this time he will win the US presidential nomination it is still nice to see the voting for him and not Shillary.

Ron Paul To Place 5th In Iowa
By Justin Gardner | Related entries in 2008 Election, Iowa, Ron Paul
Fred Thompson and John McCain are virtually tied with 14% apiece, and they’re pulling away from Ron Paul. Looks like he’ll end up with 10% of the vote, which is respectable, but we all know he was hoping for a lot more.
Still, he should be included in any forum or debate from here on out. Duncan Hunter is done. It’s a 5 man race now. Take note Fox News.

Obama, Paul Win MySpace Primary
January 03, 2008
By Mike Shields

Obama took in 46 percent of the democratic vote.

NEW YORK As MySpace goes, so goes the nation?

Perhaps not, but the Web's biggest social networking site has released the results of the inaugural MySpace Presidential Primary just in time for today's Iowa caucuses, which kick off the 2008 presidential election season.

The winner among Democratic candidates was Sen. Barack Obama, who is among the leaders heading into today's caucus.

But more surprising is the victory by Rep. Ron Paul—a Republican candidate who is considered a major long shot in 2008. Overall, MySpace said that 153,226 members voted in the online primary.

Obama took in 46 percent of the Democratic vote, trailed by Sen. Hillary Clinton's 31 percent. Meanwhile, Paul's surprising win came with 37 percent of the MySpace Republican vote, with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee taking the second and third place slots at 18 and 16 percent, respectively.

The MySpace Presidential Primary started just after 3:00 a.m. EST on New Year's Day, and concluded just before midnight on Jan. 2.

The News Corp.-owned site reported that the average age of the participants was 29 years old, and that the vast majority of those participants planned to vote in the actual election this year. Thus, as the 2008 presidential campaign continues to unfold over the next several months, MySpace plans to release a series of polls meant to gauge the interest and attitudes of its membership base on the race for the White House.
