    CNN says he has 60 delegates. My neighbors are a larger number of delegates than CNN and the AP claims.

    It's so sweet.

    OK, would some of you guys please explain this to me.

    From the pro-Paul camp, how many delegates have been elected that are free to vote for Paul in the first round.

    Now, how many delegates are committed to vote for Romney in the first round.




    If the delegates are pro-Paul guys, but legally bound to vote for Romney, how's that help him again?

    When Paul loses the primary in his own state to Romney again, the Paul disciples will go out of their way to post links to that too, right ?

    They will point out that he beat Romney in Texas in 2008.


    Voter turnout was 10.8%. Candidate Votes Percentage
    John McCain...........................................697,767........51.21% 80
    Mike Huckabee ......................................518,002........38.02% 16
    Ron Paul ................................................66,360............4.87% 0
    Mitt Romney...........................................27,264............2.00% 0
    Fred Thompson......................................11,503.............0.84% 0
    Alan Keyes.................................................8,260...........0.60% 0
    Duncan Hunter...........................................8,222...........0.60% 0
    Rudy Giuliani...............................................6,038...........0.44% 0
    Hugh Cort.....................................................728............0.05% 0
    Hoa Tran.......................................................604............0.04% 0
    Uncommitted...........................................17,574.............1.29% 0
    Total...................................................1,362,322..............100% 96
    He got double Romney's votes. Of course, Romney had dropped out some time before the primary. Considering the devotion most of his supporters have, I'd imagine that just about everyone that supported Paul did go to vote.

    I did a poor job of phrasing it. I meant when Paul loses his own state again, to whomever wins, will the Paul fans make a big deal out of it like the OP did in Mass and be quick to post links on it ? If not, why not for the sake of consistent thinking and fairness ?
     
  13. The obvious difference is that Ron Paul hasn't been anointed the nominee by the liberal mainstream media. Romney hasn't actually won, most conservatives don't really want him, but they'll vote for him in the primary anyway because of media canard about "electability." I expect Romney will win Texas though. Most voters just line up and go for who they're told. The media has been kid gloves with Romney this whole cycle and it's pretty clear he's the one they want running against Obama. I don't know if that has anything to do with his pro-choice, pro-mandate, anti-gun history but I have my suspicions.
     
  14. You won't be laughing when Obama gets a second term. You will be crying about the liberals.

    RP is the only guy who can beat Obama!

    What, you don't think a guy that alienates his base can win the election?

    I really think you guys are giving the MSM too much power. Thanks to Al Gore, we have the internets now. The people have access to a multitude of information, and most of the Primary voters are at least interested in politics. They have their reasons for voting the way they vote.

    Maybe the reason that I'm not wearing a tin foil hat to keep the MSM from controlling my mind, is because I am resistant to such influence. Which may also explain those that believe the MSM can control minds. They influence things a bit, maybe even to a measurable level, but it's not the reason Paul is not doing well.
