Cox Spins Dismal Numbers in Straw Poll...Again

Once again, we're indebted to The Political Pale Horse for keeping up with John Coxmeister's ridiculous campaign for president, which is growing more and more desperate for news these days, apparently:
"Cox for President gleefully announced in a press release that John Cox “nips Romneys heels in Iowa Straw Poll” in Linn County. What they failed to mention is statistically Romney, Cox, Fred Thompson, and Ron Paul are all tied. They all came in between three and five percent.

Tommy Thompson came in at 33%, Brownback at 30%, and Tancredo at 15%. Even more interesting is presidential candidate Daniel Gilbert is statistically tied with John Cox. Who is Daniel Gilbert you ask? We don’t know either. At face value we still like him more than Cox. We just know this:

John Cox 4%
Daniel Gilbert 2%

What the press release should have said was this:

For immediate release:

Daniel Gilbert nips Cox’s heels in Iowa Straw Poll
Cox still looks like a douche bag

(Cedar Rapids) – GOP presidential candidate John Cox came in at 4% in Linn County’s straw poll after suing anyone who laughed at his candidacy and spending nearly $800,000 of his own money. Daniel Gilbert, Cox’s chief rival, came in at 2% without doing anything other than putting up a website.

Cox had this to say. “The people of Linn County have spoken,” said the GOP candidate, “I am not an anti-Christ.”

Linn County is located in Cedar Rapids, well actually Cedar Rapids is located in Linn County. But Cox is too much of a joke to be able to afford competent staff that would know that. So he’s stuck with me. Don’t tell anybody, but I don’t know how to write a press release either."

Well, PPH nailed it. The question I have is just how many people voted in this STRAW poll? My sources say about 30, but it could be a bit higher. I doubt it.
