AP: Romney Says Straw Poll Win Isn’t Hollow

From those unbiased reporters at the Associated Press:


Romney says straw poll win isn‘t hollow

12 August, 2007

By KEVIN FREKING, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON – Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney refused Sunday to let a low turnout and the absence of some notable opponents diminish his dominant victory in Iowa‘s Republican Party Straw Poll.

He maintained the decisions by New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Sen. John McCain of Arizona not to participate reflected his campaign‘s strength.

Romney had been expected to win the test, largely an exercise reflecting a candidate‘s organizational strengths, because he spent millions of dollars and months of effort on the event.

Eight years ago, about 23,000 people voted in the straw poll. On Saturday, only about 14,000 did. Romney attributed the turnout to heat and the expectation that he would be a runaway victor…

How about that for an biased headline? And how about the photo that the AP chose to run with this “story”?

Why is the lunatic Ron Paul suddenly so popular with our watchdog media?

(That’s a rhetorical question.)
