McCain: 600

Huck: 250

Romney: 230

Ron: 30 (alaska)

This is what the media will report to us. Ron probably has ~50-75 in reality

Ron needs to carry his home state and grab 150 of its delegates and we are in a solid position to "come out of nowhere"

especially if the plan is to 'sneak' in a bunch of delegates who are committed to the state winner on the first ballot, but will vote Paul on subsequent ballots. Go National delegates, GO!

Exactly.

This is pretty much how we imagined this a couple months ago, but it's McCain leading and not Romney.

Even better!

:rolleyes:

What makes you think Ron Paul is going to jump out of nowhere in terms of support? The media is already clearly defining this as a 3 person race. Say bye-bye to even a remote chance in any future debates.

ron wont do squat in texas because HQ doesn't have a clue when it comes to "framimg" their pitch to the average texan...

Instead of putting out commercials that would say something to the effect of, "Texans, you have the chance to change this election... to let the rest of America know that every day americans value their liberties, value their freedoms and are done sending trillions of dollars overseas to foreign lands"

It doesn't matter. Fill the delegate spots and let's make sure no one has a clear advantage. We have our best chance of winning in a brokered convention. It's always been that way. That's always been the focus of the campaign.

Okay then, what makes you think McCain will fall behind instead of move ahead in the delegate count?

McCain will not take Texas.

McCain will not take Texas.

Besides that being only 1 state, it isn't even winner take all. What future states can Romney outdo McCain in? Huckabee is vying for a VP spot, just like Edwards so that's a nonissue. Also, I see no reason McCain can't perform well in Texas.
