Ron Paul and the caucuses
The RNC isn’t just nervous about Nevada. In the past few weeks, as Romney cemented his hold on the nomination and the media turned its attention to the general election, Paul supporters have wreaked havoc at numerous district caucuses and state conventions, producing some startling results. For instance, 20 of Iowa’s 28 national convention delegates will likely be Paul supporters – even though the Texan finished third in the state’s January caucuses with 21 percent of the vote. And 20 of the 24 delegates selected in district caucuses in Minnesota recently are Paul backers, even though he was trounced by Rick Santorum in the state’s February caucuses. Similar stories have emerged from Louisiana, Colorado and Massachusetts, with the list likely to grow.
His supporters absolutely do not care that Paul lost all these contests by landslides. They are determined and disciplined, exactly the sort of minority that can engineer a coup d'etat.
And yes, it does remind me of someone, but at least Obama did win a whole bunch of states, Paul has not won any states, yet he clearly plans to walk off with the convention.
