A pair of California political analysts have dismissed tonight’s Ron Paul World of Warcraft march as inconsequential.
As reported by the Orange County Register, Republican political pollster Adam Probolsky remarked:
I commend [the WoW marchers] for their activism, but I think it has no net effect on voters.
When it comes to direct voter contact, the Internet really hasn’t developed itself yet.
Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, a political analyst at the University of Southern California, added:
I think the main reason for the rally is to have the media focus on it, and then have some voters in the United States talking about Ron Paul.
GP: Both Probolsky and Jeffe admit that they’ve never heard of World of Warcraft (hard to believe), which – in our mind – taints their opinion of its possible effect just a bit.
In any case, GamePolitics will be covering the Ron Paul march tonight.
If you plan to attend:
Meet in Ironforge, form a single file line and march around the city. The group will then take the tram from IronForge to StormWind where supporters will congregate at the fountain in front of the bank.
Then, players will go to Westfall and swim to Booty Bay to take a boat to Rachet. Finally, once in the Barrens, the group will head to the Crossroads, surround the area and dance.
