I am voting RP even if I have to write him in. None of the other candidates are worth spit imo.
There’s no disputing that Paul has a loyal and relatively large following. (Witness his near-win in the Ames Straw Poll last month.)
But, we’ve often wondered just how many Paul-ites are actually Republicans. New data from the Washington Post-ABC News poll suggests that it’s not all that many.
Overall, 25 percent of the American public views the Texas Congressman favorably while 27 percent see him in an unfavorable light. Of the 25 percent of people who regard Paul favorably, roughly two-thirds don’t identify themselves as Republicans.

*sigh*. Well here we go all over again. If you think voting for Romney or anyone else with the "status quo" agenda will do any good for the country, then just get ready for more of the same.
I am a little surprised you think Paul supporters won't register as republicans for the GOP nomination. Paul supporters are well aware of the fact that they need to register republican, otherwise what is the point of all the support for him?? If they don't vote there's no point!edit on 29-9-2011 by Wookiep because: (no reason given)

Since Paul's chances in the GOP primary are - 0 - I have begun endorsing one of the top tier candidates; Mitt Romney. Better him than any of the other potential nominees.
