Ron Paul has not won a State as of yet despite this being his third attempt at the GOP nomination and the presidency. If Paul comes third or fourth in
Florida this will only further add to his low chances for the nomination, however the States following Florida, Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, the GOP
demographics here fit the type of voters Paul is fishing for in the race. Nevada in particular in my opinion is probably one of the states Paul has
the best chance of actually winning in the primaries and will solidify his position as a player in the race. In 2008 he only came second to Romney in
this state, and with his campaign money saved from being excessively spent in Florida, he may actually outspend Romney and all the other candidates
here in the end.
Currently Romney is leading in the polls for Nevada, Gingrich is second, but once Paul gets his campaign into action there after Florida, the polls
Why is this significant? It is my opinion that Paul is collecting delegates and support not for the nomination now but for the goal toward making some
deal come the convention, possibly to get part of his agenda into party goals, heck, maybe a chance for him to eventually become a VP runner?
(Gingrich already stated that he sympathized with Paul on the Federal Reserve, this may be good example of a recognition within the GOP that a deal
needs be made for Paul at some point). Winning a State or more will only assist Paul with his agenda and his influence in the party. I'm sure Paul
winning Nevada will also be something for Paulers to be happy about, because for once he'll come first in an actual State. Anybody from Nevada? is
there a strong Paul presence there?
