Absolutely, I always read the MSM articles trying to discredit RP and the comment sections are always littered with RP support. I guess you can blame
the RP fan group for flooding the comment sections...
It's funny because if there were other candidate supporters in the comments the MSM would regard them as "real voters"

I think the donations issue also clarifies the issue as well -
check donor maps here. What was it, 100k+ donors
for Paul last analysis, compared to 1/5th that for "Front-runner" Romney and something less for Perry?
Ron Paul HAS large grassroots support. The other candidates don't - they're the ones with few supporters. What you see otherwise in the general
party fallout are not people who support a candidate, but people who merely want to figure out who's going to come out on top that they can coalesce
behind with the best chance of beating Obama - as long as that person isn't Paul.
Those aren't supporters, they're party-over-principle voters is all. Big difference.
It's heartening to see the support that RP is receiving from all factions. Some people say he's just another politician telling people what they
want to hear. It's true he's saying things people want to hear, but the difference is he's sincere about following through.
Yeah, I loved the commentor that called RP fan's "trolls' and then said ever though he was greatly outnumbered by RP supporters he " would
outlast" them on commenting. Can you say loser? Who's the real troll?
We will all find out, one way or the other, about just how large Ron Pauls support is. I'm thinking he will do well in the caucas and that will show
he's a serious candidate ... and he'll peak at just the right time. (or perhaps I've just got high hopes). Anyways ... we'll know soon enough.
