Poll Rand Paul

Rand Paul: Unskew the Polls!

Why is Rand son of Ron performing so poorly in the polls?

According to Rand, the polls have been "skewed" by frontrunner Donald Trump that darn liberal media.

RAND: "The media has decided that they're going to call up 200 people. Many of these polls are 200 people. The margin of error is plus or minus five. So when someone gets 5 in a poll they could be 0 or they could be 10.

I think also the polling at this time measures one aspect, primarily name recognition. The polls are somewhat skewed by a celebrity skewing, a celebrity reality TV skewing the polls to a certain extent.

I am not the slightest bit convinced that Rand Paul would be preforming any better if Donald Trump were not in the race. I am convinced, however, that Rand is much closer to 0 than he is 10.

Rand's insistence that the vast majority of GOP votes haven't chosen a candidate to support is wrong, it simply appears that way because there are so many candidates. Donald Trump and Ben Carson together have the support of nearly half of all GOP primary voters. Rand son of Ron is an asterisk.

    Uh…Rand…I don’t want to burst your skew bubble but this in no way means the polls are skewed. As a matter of fact it totally supports that the polls are closer to the truth…even if it’s only name recognition. In other words, your campaign is cold porridge.

    Rand Paul is saying his presidential candidacy should be taken seriously because he could be polling as high as 10% among Republican voters.

    I have a hard time imagining the person—apart from a certain irregularly-accredited ophthalmologist—who would take that argument seriously.
