Paul Who???

Since I just saw this on TV, I have no sources or links. But CNN just reported the "average" results in the Republican and Democratic presidential polls, and they completely dogged Ron Paul. They showed the percentages of Republicans (well... Giuliani, Romney, Huckabee, McCain and Thompson, anyway) in each of the early primary states (and Iowa).

I could have sworn that Paul was polling at 8% in New Hampshire. But CNN left him out completely and reported the typical five, including Thompson's impressive 3%.

I'm under the influence at the moment, so I can't get too analytical about this, but it seems like CNN thinks that Paul is a less serious candidate than Fred Thompson. Why, exactly?

Fun Fact: Of the six candidates' names that I typed above, Blogger's spellcheck only catches "Huckabee" as a spelling error... and it recommends "Hackable" as the first correction. Interpret it however you like...
