    too funny!

    so, what you are predicting is that an overwhelming number of Ronulans will think this is soooooo important that they’ll waste their time getting all their fellow Paulistae to waste their time voting!

    Isn’t that special? πŸ˜‰

    BTW – rumor has it that every available short bus in the country has been booked for the GOP primary by the Hope for America crowd.

    A more interesting poll would be on whether participants consider Chambliss a conservative or even a Republican by the definitions of those terms.

    Saxby looked lovely in that picture with his pal, Ted Kennedy, when he was trying to betray us all on the amnesty bill.

    He best hope that he has no primary challenge. He is such a KNOWN hack and impostor across this state that his DC-lobbyist $5 million war chest might just be another millstone around his neck.

    Chambliss and his ilk are enemies of America.

  3. IndyInjun says:

    Ok “Georgia Values” you asked for it…..

    What exactly ARE your values and those of Chambliss, who…..voted for the biggest social program in 40 years in Medicare D, the huge intrusion on states rights with NCLB, a 70% increase in total social programs, destruction of the Constitution, and was poised to support the amnesty bill?

    They certainly are not in any of the GOP platforms or lists of conservative principles I have seen.

    The thinking here is that YOUR ‘values’ are sucking up to an impostor who has no principles, except for holding power.

    If he gets conservative opposition, Saxby is G-O-N-E.

    When I voted for Paul, his vote count showed 72. Now it says 35. Must be testing their new electronic voting software.

  5. Insider Mike says:

    Get out of here Indy. So there’s a picture of Saxby and Johnny, and Ted Kennedy is in the picture. Who cares?

    Saxby Chickenhawk Chambliss is a spineless, amoral weasel.

    He’s made of the stuff you find on the bottom of your shoe after you clean up after the hogs.

  7. Ms_midtown says:

    THE POLL TAKES MULTIPLE CLICKS FROM ONE SITE! Even the ajc.com polls have better sense than that.
    Saxby get yourself a new webmaster.

  8. Carpe Forem says:

    And Ron Paul takes the lead. I have to admit i took longer than I thought. Mitt and Mike made a good showing.

    This was actually a good idea for Saxby. He must realize that a vote for Paul is probably a vote against him.

    PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT MS. MIDTOWN SAID, FOLKS.

    I just tried it and got 3 votes personally cast for Ron Paul. This thing is capable of being padded worse than any election rigging you’ve ever seen.

  10. IndyInjun says:

    Insider Mike,

    Your moniker says it all.

    I am not going anywhere and plan to help kick you fakes out of MY party.

    You can’t take it. Your boy has more in common with Chappaquiddick Ted than he does with real conservatives and my fellow Georgians.

    I gave you specific CONSERVATIVE AND GOP problems with the impostor Saxby and all you can do is tell me to get out.

    You are right! I managed 200 for Huckabee and 100 for Romney.

  12. GOPeach says:

    SAXBY ….

    PLEASE take Tom Tancredo’s Torch and RUN!

    He plans to run for US Senate in CO. Please support him and his efforts! We beg you!!!

  13. GodHatesTrash says:

    Slimeball Saxby got his spine the same place that snake Zig-Zag Zell got his. Slithering slimy stupid creeps both.

  14. The poll was a joke. I’ve been traveling and logged on late, around midnight. The lead was Ron Paul with somewhere around 700 votes and Huckabee with 500. This morning at 8 am, it shows Romney with over 1,000.

    Hmmmm,,,, some teenager must have been up all night hitting his back button. So much for any unscientific accuracy, aka waste of time.

    Do you think it says something if your people are fired up to go to thses fake polls and vote over and over. If I was a Mccain supporter I would try and get all two of his supporters to help me out and vote over and over but they cant because mccain (plug in a name) does not get them excited . This poll is rigged but it still tells you a story especially if you see this over and over.

    The Paul supporters are very dedicated and committed to Paul. That is why I think Paul is going to do better than expected in Iowa.

    The caucus is the same day as the Orange Bowl game and then there is the weather. Ron Paul supporters will crawl on their hands and knees if necessary in order to vote.

  17. What it tells me is that somehow in this highly technologically advanced age, they can’t even post a “poll” that allows you to cast your vote once? Or at least, makes you jump some hurdles to manipulate the poll (ie. clearing out your cache and history)…..

  18. IndyInjun says:

    Debbie:

    Dr. Paul is a contender because if a voter really takes a close look at him, the ‘kook’ label does not stick for they find a CONSERVATIVE in every sense of the word.

    – He has authored something like 8 or 9 books on finance and the ecnomy and he has offered himself for POTUS at a time when the very scenarios he predicted are blowing all over the banking system. The rest are clueless.

    – He worships the CONSTITUTION, you know that “G-D Piece of paper’ so I suppose that is the basis for calling him a ‘kook’

    – He is a MD running when the medical system faces melt-down.

    – He voted FOR war on terrorists in AFghanistan, but correctly predicted the Iraq fiasco anf that Pakistan was the greater enemy.

    – He runs at a time that the likes of Chambliss afflects the GOP, folks who have damaged this country more in 6-8 years that the Dems did in 40.

    – His two brothers were both in the ministry.

    – His conservative ratings are extremely high.

    -He is the strongest pro-lifer in this race.

    – He has the faith and inner strength to withstand all manner of pressure to do the expedient, but wrong things.

    There is not another candidate like him in this race.

    We implore one and all to look at what we are SUPPOSED to stand for as Americans, conservatives, Christians, and Republicans and vote accordingly.

    Join us and save America.

    Join us and save yourselves.

    ps…Debbie, did you read Peggy Noonan today?

  19. StevePerkins says:

    Oh come ON, people… Saxby Chambliss is not Gallop. He’s not Zogby. Hell, he’s not even Strategic Vision. What’s with all the bluster about how his website poll “isn’t scientific”, and “is vulnerable to rigging”? Duh… of course! I don’t think Saxby is trying to pretend otherwise. I doubt he even knows it’s on his site at all, but rather it’s just some Facebook-style widget that the webmaster threw in for the hell of it. I’m as bored as anyone by the low traffic on Peach Pundit due to the holidays, but even still no one should take this all too seriously (I imagine that Buzz only posted this to mention Ron Paul, knowing it would draw some comments).

    That said, I will agree with others that it’s silly for Ron Paul to be dismissed as “just an internet thing”. Paul’s on track to lead the entire GOP field in Q4 fundraising, at $50 per average donor. Is that just an “internet thing”? Guiliani’s fundraising has faded, Romney is largely self-financed, McCain’s finances are a mess, Thompson turned out be a weak fundraiser, and Huckabee still hasn’t raised as much money through the entire campaign as Paul receives every two or three weeks. As for the polls, ALL of the non-scientific surveys are rigged by somebody. A few months back, Fred Thompson was winning a Bumf**k County Straw Poll (sponsored by Committees to Draft Fred) every other day… and somehow that’s different? It all comes out in the wash, because people usually view polls with the level of credibility that they deserve. All the same, how come none of the other guys can find supporters as dedicated as Paul’s to stuff polls on THEIR behalf?

  20. debbie0040 says:

    Indy, I read her columns with yesterday’s date but not today. Can you provide the link as I love to read Noonan? Thanks

  21. debbie0040 says:

    Indy, we are on the same page. I saw where you posted it under a different thread. I had posted it yesterday. She is right on target.

  22. IndyInjun says:

    This ‘poll’ is a total JOKE. Earlier it was GONE and now it shows numbers reflective of early yesterday.

    You just have to consider the lamentable, pathetic source.

  23. Of course its not a scientific poll. The value these provide is just some simple information to see what is happening.

    I’m in Connecticut, and have found what I am seeing in Middle Georgia. This election is bringing new blood in the political process. People who are not part of the old reliable workers are involving themselves. For what its worth, Huckabee and Paul have been able to tap into this.

    Where I’m at, Huckabee people are liking Huckabee. My nephew is 20. This is his first election he gets to vote in. He is not a politico and had no clue who I’ve been supporting. The first words out of his mouth after saying hello good to see you was, you gotta check out Huckabee…. I knew I liked this kid.

  24. StevePerkins says:

    Heh… I’m deeply flattered, Rick, but even with your support I’d probably only get two votes (and my wife would likely vote against me to cancel out MY vote!).

  25. Ali A. Akbar says:

    Saxby took it down because Ron Paul was winning (I imagine). While I don’t support Ron Paul – it was a bit neglectful not to calculate the “risk” and publish it in the first place.

    I think this falls into the integrity column. Disappointing…

    I can not agree with you more!!!

    I used to be one of the most active members of the Georgia Republican Party and the Republican Womens Club. We were pioneers in Georgia. We were in the minority …..always going up against the establishment.

    Things started to change for the good and for the bad. The best thing that ever happened to the Republican Party was Ralph Reed. He is the one who went to the National GOP and told them that the Pro-Life Voters needed a political home and the GOP needed a base that would mobilize the conservative platform!!!! A deal was made and Ronald Reagan got elected. I was in the center of that revolution.

    This is why I was and still am a supporter of Ralph Reed. I saw how he was able to bring in a huge voter base into a political party and change policy in America.

    All many of you know of Ralph Reed is some sort of casino business that got spun so much because the liberal left had a vendetta. They know what Ralph was capable of doing politically. He scared the hell out of them.

    So, here we are today. The “Christian Right” is so scattered as you can see. Pat Robertson Evangelicals are with Pro-Death alleged Catholic Rudy ( WTF) and others are with Dlip Flip Mormon Mitt Romney….

    This alone is making the left salivate. Divide and conquer … they must be thinking.

    Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee are AWESOME! I love them both. The only difference is the WAR- I lean to Huckabee on the war – We need to win!
    We can win too!

    I am a hopeless optimist!

    “Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee are AWESOME! I love them both. The only difference is the WAR”

    How many times, and how many ways must you be told this is not the case, before you realize that?

    GOPeach
    I am glad you like Ron Paul, but for me Ron Paul and Huck are nowhere close. Ron would be my first in the republican primary and Huck would be my last.I do think Paul could bring the Libertarian faction back into the tent of the republican party I am not sure if you guys are ready for us to come back.If you guys want to beat the democrats you need to have us back. I believe the Republican party needs to do outreach to the members of the Libertarian party. A great thing would be to allow fusion candidates in Georgia

  29. My Friends…

    1) I, Justin Tomczak, posted the poll.
    2) No claims were made about it being scientific and I did not receive any calls from major media outlets asking about predicted results.
    3) I didn’t realize how prone to abuse it was. To those who stayed up all night to watch the results come in and thereby determine who was going to be our nominee, I am truly sorry to have disappointed.
    4) I also didn’t realize how much time some folks would spend voting over and over again.
    5) I have been amazed by some of the nasty e-mails I have received charging that I will lie, cheat, and steal to keep one candidate or another from “winning” this poll.
    6) I don’t care who “won” the poll, but I do care that it not be abused by folks who seem to think that this poll was going to determine the outcome of the election and who were ready to take to the streets in protest because I spent my Christmas weekend trying to adjust for bogus votes coming in from the same IP addresses by the hundreds.
    6) I took it down and am working with the web guys to make it more secure.
    7) Merry Christmas to all, I am sorry that I am not a technologically savy as I should be (I guess homeschooling can have shortcomings). πŸ™‚

  30. GOPeach says:

    Justin-

    You know HOMESCHOOLING is THE BEST way to be educated! You went to HARVARD, I hear!

    HARVARD is NOT M.I.T., Hun! My son thinks you are cool. Hey… he does NOT say that about many people….. trust me on THAT! πŸ™‚

    I agree Homeschollers are awesome. My schedule does not allow for it though. I had to settle on sending my kid to private school. But man I am impressed with anyone who would home school.

  32. GOPeach says:

    Hank-

    We homeschooled all 5 of our kids ….
    back when it was not cool.

    We tried private and found it to be lacking in the organic way kids naturally learn. Also… our kids were NEVER sick! That was great.
