Tonight Robyn Hamlin, posted the picture below on Facebook.
It compares the internet searches for “Ron Paul”, “Mitt Romney” and “Barrack Obama”, and then uses the graph to insinuate that there is a media conspiracy to pick Romney as the candidate and not cover Ron Paul despite his obvious superior support.
Unfortunately just because there a numerous searches for the term “Ron Paul” does not mean that such a graph is any indication of electoral support. That is why we have a system of primaries and caucuses to pick our nominees.
There is also another problem with the graph above. It MISSPELLS Barack Obama’s name “Barrack Obama” Which can drastically effect the results as we see below, when all names are spelled correctly.
Seriously? You don’t know how to spell the President’s name? And then base a conspiracy theory off false logic based on false results? Really? Why am I not surprised.
What is even worse about this post is that Robyn Hamlin is involved in a primary of her own to be the Republican Party’s Congressional nominee in the 1st District.
Is this how she thinks races should be decided, by sloppy internet searches? Perhaps so, since she earlier used a Facebook poll to decide whether or not to run as a Republican. If she is unsure of her party affiliation, why should she expect members of that party to support her candidacy? Lucky for us there is a superior conservative Republican candidate already in the race.
We have real problems in the 1st District and we need serious people to address them, not someone spouting conspiracy theories.
Please support Martin Baker in the Republican Primary.
