Question: Do we want a strong Romney coming out of SuperTuesday? I think he should be just strong enough to be beatable.
What do you think?
How Ron Paul Could Win?
His supporters have take over the internet. They are writing blogs and posting videos on many websites. One of the most popular website www.dailypaul.com has about 700 readers at any current moment. I can't find these sort of sites for Hillary, Obama, McCain or Huckabee, but Ron Paul seems to being winning the internet race.
Ron Paul hasn't won a state yet, but he has been beating Rudy Giuliani, the former front runner, consistently. Today he also had his first second place finish in Nevada. A second place finish even though he was way behind is enough to generate some buzz around Paul as we continue, and he is ready to continue. The other candidates are running out of money McCain, Huckabee and Giuliani and Fred Thompson is certainly done coming a distant third in South Carolina.
This leaves a Five Person Race: McCain, Giuliani, Huckabee, Paul and Romney
Here is how Ron Paul wins:
Romney wins Florida, Huckabee comes Second, McCain Third, Giuliani Fourth.
Giuliani Drops Out
This takes us to the Maine Caucuses
Romney wins again forcing Huckabee to drop out due to loss of funds.
Leaving Paul, McCain and Romney for Super Tuesday. Ron Paul's percentages jump a large amount in Feb. 5 voting and Romney does extremely well. McCain drops out.
This takes us to the rest of the states, and while Romney has gained support many people are anti-Romney and he becomes more unpopular before the final voting. Ron Paul's supporters vote for him and the anti Romney supporters vote for him. This should give him a great chance to win the nomination.
*This scenario is unlikely, but if Ron Paul were to win he needs to be one on one with a polarizing candidate like Romney.
