They want to know what is in it for them.

In order to persuade more people to vote for Ron Paul we need to persuade them that Romney cannot win.

Romney baggage

Why Ron Paul?

Why ONLY Ron Paul can beat Obama

Point out,in every possible forum, that Mitt Romney's biggest contributors are, "same thieves that stole your home and stole your job, make big bonuses doing so, got bailouts from the government (in other words, YOUR money), then get more big bonuses. How does it feel to vote for a candidate that is financed by money stolen from YOU?"

Voters are selfish and emotional.
And they don't like getting mugged.

Romney's largest donors from opensecrets

We better start persuading Santorum and Gingrich delegates and voters not to switch to Romney.

Something like this :-

1. If Fox News was not so biased, your guy would probably still be in the race. Are you going to vote for Fox's candidate?

2. Romney cannot beat Obama in November.
If you vote for Romney you are voting for Obama.

We then need to try and persuade them to vote for Ron Paul


1. Ron Paul is the only candidate that can beat Obama.
He will pull in the Independents and some of the disillusioned Democrats.
So if you don't want Obama vote Ron Paul.

2. Ron Paul wants to reduce the number of petty rules and regulations not see them increase by 40,000 a year like this year.

There are some other blogs on here that might be of some use.
E.G. saving $200bn a year and have less hard drug addicts by ending the war on drugs

Romney can win though. How do you think he keeps "winning" these primaries?

It sure isn't because he is popular. He is winning because of cheating which has been documented in the vote flipping thread.

I'm not so blind I cannot see that. First learned about how easy it is to rig Diebold voting machines with Ohio in 2004. Costs $20 and a few minutes access. And there is no audit trail. Or change the data file when it is sent to the processing center for collation.

But the primary results pretty much reflect the polls immediately prior to the vote.
Where it is close or varies quite a lot between polls it could be changed to what is "considered to be a favorable outcome".
Then there are things like "losing" the votes of 8 precincts in Iowa that were most favorable to Ron Paul. They are still not in the caucus tally.
