    they're skipping because they don't care what Americans think, so long as they fall in line when it comes time to vote for the ordained candidate. Reject the "top three" ... RESEARCH and investigate the other candidates!

    I too believe that they are skipping the poll because they are afraid that Ron Paul will win and dramatically reduce campaign contributions for them. Unlike Dr. Paul, they cannot survive without the big money backers...

    They are afraid of what has happened in so many other straw polls, Ron Paul has been sweeping them. The corporate sponsored candidates are going to have a hard time this go around when they have to contend with a true patriot who is gaining the love of a nation.
