Columbia, MO, April 7, 2012 - Gallup has joined the ranks of the suspicious, with regard to blacking out Ron Paul. Their latest poll and a head-to-head showdown between Obama and the Republican hopefuls is disturbing and in more than one way. The results reported on April 2, 2012 show Obama's lead over Romney is expanding and his lead over Santorum is larger still. BUT, what they failed to do is include Ron Paul in the poll or results. This may not seem important, but what is shows it that the mainstream media is still driving our elections!
There has been so much happening throughout the GOP nomination process that you may have forgotten some key points. Let me refresh you memory.
In early December, NBC/Marist published the results of their pre-Iowa Caucus poll. While the poll results showed Newt Gingrich ahead of all the other hopefuls, the one thing buried at the end of page 5, and on page 6 was the results of head to head competitions pitting President Obama against GOP hopefuls doing well at the time. Only Paul was tied with Obama, AND, even with Gingrich's favored position among likely Republicans during this poll, Paul did better than both Romney and Gingrich, with Obama holding a 7% lead over Romney and a 10% lead over Gingrich. During this poll, Santorum didn't make the cut.
Before the Arizona State Primary in early March, NBC/Marist conducted another poll in which Romney, Santorum and yes, even Paul polled ahead of Obama. Gingrich was the only one of the four who did not best Obama in the hypothetical head-to-head contest.
Something else to remember, Paul was winning straw poll after straw poll and upsetting the establishment GOP's in many such polls. The better Paul did, the more the media called him "unelectable." How many people gave up on Paul because of the media's bias is anyone's guess. On top of all this, there is Paul's win in the Virgin Islands, which went virtually unreported. One thing is for sure, though, only Paul is pulling in record crowds at his speaking engagements across the country.
"This is where it gets tricky and it is very important. We have to tune out the mainstream and just get Paul elected," says William Lewis, independent filmmaker and producer of The Ron Paul Uprising. "We've documented the mainstream media bias before and have done it again in our new film. People need to stop watching the mainstream and get some facts about the candidates."
The new film depiction of the characteristics a presidential candidate for our country should possess, why Ron Paul is the better candidate, revisits the Obama letdown and the film even includes a section on vote fraud.
Why bother, since the mainstream media is not giving him a chance? "It's simple," says Debbie Lewis, the film's writer. "At this point, it's not over until the nomination is made, unless Paul, himself, pulls out of the race. No one GOP hopeful has the majority it takes to win it all at this point. If this contest goes to a brokered convention, people need to know about Paul. And the media isn't telling them anything, and at a brokered convention, committed delegates will be freed and Paul can still win!"
"It's going to be up to the Paul grassroots to inform the rest of the country about Paul, as we know the media will not do it," says Lewis. "I've been producing independent films for a few years now and my motivation for The Ron Paul Uprising is to make people aware that we do have an excellent choice who will believes in our rights to liberty. Like we did with another of our releases, there is a downloadable voting record, along with a tri-fold pamphlet that contains valuable information to help people understand what Paul's about. If we're going to take back this country, the time is now!"
