The media keeps showing all of Ron Paul's single digit finishes in each state. They want to create the impression that people just don't want the guy. But, it's very important to remember that they gave substantial media coverage to all of the other candidates BUT him! Do you have any idea how hard it is to win a state, or even be competitive, when most of the voters know very little about you or your positions? It's remarkable that Ron Paul is doing as well as he is. The entire establishment has marginalized Ron Paul from the beginning. They want him, and us, to get discouraged and lose heart. But we are NOT going to let that happen. Much to their dismay, we will STILL be here tomorrow whether it fits their template or not. It's our country, too.

It is unfortunate (in this case, for us, at least) that they don't weight a candidate's percentage by the inverse of how much media attention they've received. We'd be doing awesome. Our 5 percents would turn into competetive races, our greater than 10 percents would turn into easy victories. :)

Yeah, but they still wouldn't translate into delegates, which is what we need to win.
