Bachmann Wins Ames Straw Poll With 29% Of Vote, Ron Paul Takes Second With 28%

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The Ames Straw vote results out of Iowa are in, and Michelle Bachmann appears to have won with 29% of the votes, or 4,823 of the 16,892 votes cast. Bernanke nemesis Ron Paul placed second, just 150 votes behind Bachmann, at 4,671, or taking down 28% of the total. For those stupefied by this result, a source on the ground informs us that Bachmann proceeded to hand out 6000 free tickets at $30 each with a mandatory registration at her booth to gain concert entrance. Furthermore, final results were probably tabulated by the BLS. As for other frontrunners, Pawlenty came in a distant third with 14% or 2,293 of the votes. The Hill has more: "A House member has never finished in the top two; extraordinarily, two House lawmakers finished nearly neck-and-neck toward the top. Bachmann is the first woman to ever win the straw poll. "We’re very excited," said Alice Steward, a spokesman for Bachmann. "it’s a very emotional night for her, she’s excited and thankful all the hard work of the supporters and volunteers paid off...Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) won about 10 percent, pizza magnate Herman Cain finished at about nine percent, and Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) drew just 35 total votes. Murmurs of huge crowds at Waterloo native's splay on the campus of Iowa State University persisted throughout the day, suggesting that momentum was with — and never waned — from Bachmann's campaign." Rounding off the field were Santorum with 10% of the vote, Herman Cain with 9%, write ins Perry and Romney with 4% and 3%, respectively, and Gingrich getting 2%. We are not quite sure if this is the cue to laugh or cry. Our money is on the latter.

More from The Hill:

A rousing late-day speech that stressed social conservative credentials and Bachmann's ties to the Hawkeye State culminated with Bachmann beckoning undecided voters to her tent, which boasted air conditioning, seating, and performances by country star Randy Travis.

 

"Join me, I'm heading over to the voting booth right now," she said. "Come with me now."

 

Pawlenty's failure to finish in the top spot raises new questions about the core health of his campaign. The former Minnesota governor has failed to raise his poll numbers outside the single digits, and had poured most of his remaining resources into the straw poll, where he hoped a victory would infuse his campaign with new momentum. 

 

"We made progress in moving from the back of the pack into a competitive position for the caucuses, but we have a lot more work to do," Pawlenty said in a statement. "This is a long process to restore America -- we are just beginning and I'm looking forward to a great campaign."

 

Pawlenty had set expectations at a finish somewhere in the top-tier; he's said repeatedly that a first-place finish wasn't essential. But even Pawlenty acknowledged Friday that a disappointing finish would force him to "reassess" his campaign, which has set itself up as more of a traditional, nationally-oriented campaign.

As for Paul...

Paul's showing caps off an effort of almost five years, dating back to his first bid for the Republican nomination way back in 2007, when he started to assemble the vast grassroots organization that propelled him to victory in today's straw poll.

 

He made a midday speech to straw poll participants that was heavy on playing up the Texas congressman's opposition to abortion rights; he also emphasized his opposition to the war in Iraq and criticism of U.S. monetary policy — views that tend to place him outside of the Republican mainstream.

 

Paul's finish Ames makes Paul's candidacy look less like a longshot, and more like a realistic possibility. The straw poll is a good, if imperfect, indicator of Republicans choice to win next February's caucuses, and Paul's finish on Saturday makes it seem increasingly plausible that he could win those contests.

Of course, if Paul were to eventually become president, we would advise him to not come within 100 miles of any school book depositories. Also to avoid prepared food, theaters, public speeches, pope mobiles (in fact any form of transportation that goes over 15 mph), to run like the wind from any and all hot tubs, jacuzzis, swimming pools, and baths, and in general to conduct his long overdue gold standard policy from a bunker several miles underground if possible.

Alas, this may all be just a tad optimistic.

I was there today. Ron had by far the best showing and obviously the dedicated supporters as always. I have a great image of 5, 6' banners I posted on an overpass on the interstate north of the campus. There were tons of RP signs in Ames, IA. There is deep support for RP and fiscal sanity around here. Bachmann didn't have the support the quoted article alledges. Chuck Grassley was on fox news at 5:20CST and said no one compares to Ron Paul's crowd. It's obvious Bachmann spent 10 or perhaps 100 times more than Paul on ads in IA. She's a sinking ship. Unfortunately if her donors are as dumb as she is we'll be hearing about her for months. Likely Perry will take 50% of her followers. The women won't leave her obviously. They want a bigot redux of 2008 when the largest percentage of a minority group voted for a candidate in the history of this country. This time they want to be the largest percentage of women to vote for an idiot for no reason other than blatant bigotry.

Uhhh, it's a candid photo of a political bankwhore doing what she does best. She was an IRS lawyer! She is just showing her would-be bankster masters how well she can do her job if they select to be the new prez!

Wait, you don't really think the banksters allow anyone to be prez who isn't willing to suck their dick and give them trillions of dollars!?! That's so cute!!!

You think DrP is paying these people? Bacuntwhoremann was the one who bribed them with tickets to see Randy Travis (another homo, just like her Quackfaggot husband- I'm from TN, and he's hit on me or my friends more than once) so just shuthefuckup.

People suppot DrP because he "walks the talk" and has for 30+ years. I've never been paid a penny by him (actually I've donated a lot to him!) and I have worked many events to support him. What scares you about being free, and not killing innocent people?

I called an Old Friend to compliment (friend) on (friends) clients performance: Bachmann. Old Michele has been sticking to script - per Old Friends direction. 6,000 tickets @ $30/per? Money well spent in Iowa. The Earned Media alone more than paid for the expenditure.

 

Old Friend and I went on to discuss Ron Paul - and, his opposition to socialism for anyone/anything. He's no Plutocratic Sychophant, thus, there will be (still) no Corporate Media Coverage of him - at all. His nomination would shape up the race to resembled Carter/Reagan, '80. Old Friend pointed out that Ron Paul has been raising money like no other GOP-er via the internet and that he has the dough to see this through. Old Friend points out that Bachmann does not even have a Major Donor program in place. Clearly, this is no way to run a campaign.

 

In the end (election day, 2012) it will all have been for naught, anyway. Get used to having Barry around for another 4 years. The GOP has no leadership; no message (populism; utilitarianism; tax the wealthy; ...); no money. Any speculation to the contrary is wasted energy.

Michele Bachman ROFL.  It just goes to show you, alot of people are just utterly total dumbfucks.  Anyone with a brain would discount her in about two seconds after seeing her, let alone hearing anything that comes out of her mouth. 

Remember that idiot Bachman says paying off the fraudulent debt should be our #1 priority.  Which means of course, she first and foremost bends over for the banksters, or what the picture around the title suggests.

She is so clueless, that the character of Cher in Clueless had 10x the brain @16 then Bachman has now, and she's REAL....and running for president...and she won the poll. 

Ron Paul has a lot of problems, but also has some good ideas.  But in this situation is republican vs republican and so in that vacuum, no one else should beat him. Either way, the republicans should nominate him as he's the only one with a credibility past 1 percent on the dial, and he's significantly past that.  It's not even close between Ron Paul, or every other dumbfuck republican.

Magical Underwear Mitt got 7th place ROFL.  I guess his corporate whoring didn't work out too well.  What a tool.  Mr. Outsourcer and Bluestar Breaker upper loses, aww shucks.  If this poll is any indication, looks like he's going to stay unemployed. 

Impeach Obama.  Pass Glass-Steagall.

Yeah, this poll is hugely predictive.  Ron Paul won the last one.  And the one in 2008.  And who the fuck knows how many before that.

And he's never been a real candidate.

Anyone out there who hates me and wants to gloat in a little bit of awhile, take note of my prediction: Romney's getting the nom, and he's losing to Obama.

(As fucking shitty as that is, it seems pretty obvious.  Personally, I'd rather we elect a friendly dog or a sack of flour for all the fucking relevance.)

It has happened from time to time that some local like Perry has come along and won a nom on his first bid.

It's a very rare occurrence.  I don't discount Perry--he looks like a better shill than a lot of the 'Pub field, but the odds are very much way against it.  Dubya was (obviously) a special case, and may not be instructive.

I honestly don't care much anymore.....no difference really....

I'm not so sure.  I bet Perry beats Romney for the nomination.  As for Paul, I think he's the best choice available.  That being said, he is unelectable (cue media character assassination in 5, 4, 3, ...) unless he can form a rock solid 50% third party that will overwhelm the system.  It can be done I just think it's near impossible to achieve.  He is the Goldwater of our generation.  Fifty years from now many will look back and see just how prescient his ideas were.

To Wit:

1.Marion Barry would still be Mayor of Washington, DC because he self identified with The Majority of Voters.

2. Chimpy McFlightsuit becomes POTUS (OK, not lawfully) due to voters being tired of Bill CLinton making them realise they are all idiots. "He seems like he'd be cool to sit down with and have a beer/dinner/etc...". Yes, I've had to listen to that explaination - repeatedly - during and after the 2004 race.

 

3. Are you smarter than Michelle Bachmann? If she is a Good Christian, will she automatically do the right thing? Yes and, yes - as far as Middle America is concerned. 

 

Folks, she's dangerous. She's dangerous because she's just like the bulk of the electorate: Anti-Intellectual; Religious; Living in Denial.

Too funny.  The guy being scum played no part?  Gore being a condescending douchebag have a role?  Hillary being lizardly inhuman? 

What Clinton did for me was get me to realize that Democrat=Republican.  He enacted NAFTA, which all big business loved.  He also got me to realize, because he was such scum, that the political process is controlled right to the top by big money.  It's the only thing that explains why such filth floated all the way up.

I'd agree Bachmann's anti-intellectual religious and in denial, but I don't agree she's "dangerous" exactly.

What could she do that would be so horrible?

Bomb someone.  Invade a country.  Declare martial law to stamp out porn.  Create a new corps of God's Soldiers to patrol the streets and return the country to its "Christian roots."  Ignore the Constitution.  Put American citizens to death at her whim.

Which of these things would be a significant change from our current reality?

I really like the fact that all you Ron Paul supporters will be staying home in November or else holding your noses to turn out and vote for the Republican candidate. Since none of you are Republicans, it pleases me greatly to see you faced with such a dilemma as will confront you at election time. You idiots are responsible for having put Obama in office by either voting for him (that is, if any of you were old enough to vote in 2008, which, based on your juvenile posts, is a legitimate question).

 

None of you are Republicans, that is easy to see. But this election, like all the others, leaves you with just two legitimate candidates. One will be a Republican, and the other will be Obama. You voted for Obama or a fringe third party candidate last time, even though you supported Ron Paul, which, along with your posts on this thread, proves your political immaturity, but this election even you idiots can see that a vote for Obama is the worst possible choice anyone can make. The party you voted for last time is offering you the same candidate. Even idiots like you all know how stupid it would be for you to vote for him. So you will vote Republican or you will stay home. Either way, it's a gain for the Republican party. So bitch and moan all you want about the Republican candidates, I don't care, and neither do other Republicans. You aren't one of us and we don't care what you think. All we know is that you won't be voting for Obama, and that's good enough for us.

Perry = Decepti-con - Bilderberger Seal of Approval - Al Gore Texas Campaign Manager. Changed parties on order from "on high"
Romney = He make socialism work "better". Inventor of RomneyCare, model for ObamaCare.
Huntsman = Obama white | lite. Never met a Chinese business partner he didn't like. Expert at exporting jobs and making socialism work for him. Two supporters - Dad and Mom.
Pawlenty = What do you want me to say that you would like? Does anyone have a personality I could borrow? Is Romney hiring? Do you need a new paperboy?
Gingrich = Managed to co-op Republican Revolution in the 1990s, made Clinton look good. Claims to be a conservative, while pushing AGW, The Third Wave, etc. The original Decepti-Con, nickname: Megatron.
Bachman = Autobat. Former IRS Tax Lawyer. She will adopt us all and grant freedom through the Patriot Act. Able to swallow an 18" corn dog without touching the sides.
Sanitorium = Let me control your family and morals, and I'll attack Iran for you too. Never met a pro-Israel position he didn't like. The other side of the Glen Beck Coin.
Paul = The only Conservative in the race, strict Constitutionalist. MSM and Bilderberger Seal of Disapproval. The only rational candidate. Voted most likely to be 'eliminated' by the Banksters. First in Iowa Online Straw Poll,  Second in Iowa Straw Poll, but it does not count because "It's Ron Paul and it never counts when it is him".

Alright... No More Aliases
From now on these worthless douche bags must be adressed by their real, legal names:

Barry Soetoro aka Obama Bin Lyin'

Willard Romney aka "Mitt"

WTF kind of name is Mitt you Masonic cult Mormon illegal alien?

Romney Clan: Illegal Aliens from Mexico
That is right. Romney's old man the Michigan governor was born in Mexico and his grandfather... after fleeing Utah for Mexico when Utah outlawed polygamy to weasel their way into the union... Illegally crossed the border back into the US in 1912 when Pancho Villa began shooting rich gringos...

Hence Romney's grandfather and old man are illegals... and Romney is an Anchor Babby at best...

Sorry, couldn't resist that one. I would gladly vote for R0n Paul in the next election cycle. Sadly, I don't think he will be a choice given the state of politics in this country. Most likely Rommelney. Sad reflection of the decline of our nation when the two choices are 1: bad and 2: worse. If Odumbo wins the reset will come that much faster but there will be a lot of looting (even more than now) leading up to it. If Rommelney wins the fall will be slowed down to allow for the extreme reality TV version of "Who Wants To Stripmine A Nation!". Every vulture will be allowed to pick every bone clean before grinding the bleached bones into dust for fertilizer to be used on the next round of harvestable crops.

...Economic news coming out....Hong Kong GDP drops?! A 1.2% miss to the downside.


By JASON CHOW And CHESTER YUNG

HONG KONG—Softening demand for exports and weakness in the financial sector threaten a deeper slowdown for Hong Kong after a surprise contraction in the territory's economy in the second quarter.

Waning global demand and supply-chain disruptions following the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan led to a 11.1% drop in exports from the first quarter, a dramatic reversal from a 14.4% rise in the previous quarter. That caused Hong Kong's gross domestic product for the three months ended June 30 to contract 0.5% from the first quarter on a seasonally adjusted basis. A median of analysts' forecasts anticipated growth of 0.7%.

Ah, just a transitory supply chain disruption caused by an over irradiated country and global warming.  Gonna rebound next quarter, strongly.  Earnings surprises to the upside.  Listen closely to Goldman.  Timmah and Ben have this shit fixed.  Good to go. 

Watch out for a massive hammering of Gold and Silver over the next 24 hours.  Perfect psychological setup.  Tough week, way the fuck too much volatility, People still tired, sniff of panic in the air (even though the MSM's alluded to it more than actual market conditions... a sure set up...)
Perfect to slam and burn.  Encourage weak hand capitulation prior to the next upleg.
Remember....  EU promises Euro fix for September.   Marketable securities rising faster and in unexpalined manner, new debt cieling problem?   Super committee gots to fix what by when accompanied by virtual political civil war in DC.  Japan's irriadiated for life.  China is whatthefuckevered.  EU banks are fucked....  Germany's on the FU mate border of attention span with the EU.  France is gonna be downgraded because of rumors (Yes, BoA downgraded because of rumors...)  What a way to go!

Lots of good shit happenin' my friends.  Perfect time to slam and cover.

I was at the straw pole yesterday and the contrast in the crowds for candidates was interesting. I support Ron Paul as I'm a libertarian. At least 75% of Pauls supporter were age 30 and under. Lots of tat's, rings and young couples with kids. Bachman had some young christian types but mostly old people as did the other candidates. (Pawlenty's supporters were all VERY OLD)As I waited in line I listened in on the young Paul supporters. Most either didn't vote last time or voted for OBama. It's clear they have figured out they are the bagholders in the economic game that's being played on them and don't like it one bit. Young people today are very polite, not like the baby boomers I'm part of. But give them an opening to dicuss how they are being screwed (I did) and they open right up. Pissed off as hell. Not sure if they will vote if Paul doesn't win but they sure won't show up for Obama.

Bachmann is not stupid, and after her performance in the debate last week I'm not surprised by her success in the Straw Poll. If she continues to improve on the campaign trail, she has a real chance of winning the nomination.

Ron Paul did not look his best in the debate, and in video on Fox this morning, he appeared to be in physical pain while walking with staff members in Iowa. Ron Paul's ideas are the right ideas, but his time might have run out.

Well Dave...my advice is have your kids learn Chinese...learn reading, speaking & writing Mandarin.  They only need to memorize about 5,000-10,000 Chinese characters to read a Chinese newspaper.  This is called EDUCATION...but actual learning is hard work that rewards.  If you make your child's life easy they will have a harsh adult existence. Make learning fun and competitive, it's far more personally rewarding that playing computer games all the time.  Started my son learning Chinese in private high school in the 1980s. We brought over a Chinese teacher, a Chinese text book author for teaching English used in all Chinese schools.  She also lived in our home during the school year to moderate the school's expenses.  Anyone can do this if they are an active concerned parent.  No silver spoon here, everyone works and earns what they have in our family. We also don't need to lie and cheat to make a good living.  Later my son attended Stanford and graduated from UC Berkeley.  It has served him well, my 6'7" Swedish looking American understands Mandarin, Asian cultures and business practices.  Believe me, few realize he is fluent in Mandarin....a huge advantage when used properly.

and Dave....another excellent path of study is Oceanography related subjects, ecosystems, aquaculture et al.  There will be vast advances in developing our oceans for food and resources.  Our lives are truly based upon commodities, which is why a vast competitive and capatalistic American space development program could save all of us and reenergize our American economy.  Chinese are looking at controlling global resources, they look at Africa as if it's their backyard garden.  Americans need to be the first to develop resources beyond our planet, this is where the race should be won right now.  Spend our military budget and resources on space exploration and development instead of killing people to gain their natural resources (oil, heroin...soon water).

I'm not religious but in view of the recent events in Iowa I offer up a prayer to that great algo in the sky - you know that twisted entity who keeps screwing everything up - in the vain hope that my supplications will change the world for the better.  I do this for you, my fellow ZHers..

Dear Lord - what the fuck are you playing at? Send a big lightning bolt down immediately and zap every one of those crooked fuckers in balls and/or the cheeseburger.  Make Ron Paul President - please, please, please, please!!!! Amen   



Hope this helps.

Prayer is good...it gives you goals and focus.  Why not start up a local Ron Paul or conservative weekly meeting on meetup.com (it's cheap, but sign up and don't pay immediately and they will send you a half off coupon by email the next day).  Gather and grow your local community in a knowledge based environment, build an active group to expand information.  You have a year to educate locally, this could be nearly exponential growth if ALL of us did this just in our own community.  Chat, blog, talk is easy and cheap...but a weekly meeting of like minds requires little extra effort too.

What idiots are these that make their slutty comments about Michelle Bachman then grovel at the stinky feet of that saggy, battle axe Hillary Clinton ? These same people think there is no difference between the Dems and the Pubs ! What screaming, scintillating and discriminating fools are these ? Monedas 2011 Barney Frank's definition of a blow job......penis on the brain !

Most comentators here have done the 'pic' thing - great for her other half (or maybe not)!

But does she make any sense in terms of the '2012 race'?  Or will Palin show the USA how ignorant you need to be to get a green card (you played the Joker - a black ace, now, which queen will you pull from the pack of ignoramous that is USA)?

 

Bye bye baby, bye bye!

preaching to the choir here, but Alex Jones does a great rallying cry for Ron Paul here.  We got to win this.

ok now let me see here, zh shows 747 posted comments, in any case Mrs. Bachmann is going to end up kicking a few more butts before this thing is even close to being over.
