If Johnson gets the Libertarian nomination, then it will be a huge blow to the Ron Paul campaign.
I am certain that Paul is hanging his hopes upon the Libertarian ticket (he very well knows he has no shot at the Rep. nomination).
If the Libertarians have already made their nomination, then there is no other party out there that could/would get RP on the 2012 ballot in all 50
states. Not if, but when, RP gets denied the Republican nomination, that will effectively end "Paul 2012".
And yes, any Libertarian ticket would take votes from the R's much more than the D's. Sure, some D's might vote Libertarian, but not nearly the
percentage as compared to the R's.
On a side note, I'm now kind of hoping that Donald trump throws his hat in as well...That would insure a Republican failure in 2012...Heck, it might
create a situation where the R's get ~30% (or less) of the American voters.
