I think he has to try to lift his game. He isn't the type of man to quit. 3rd isn't bad, but he needs to at least place 2nd to keep the momentum going.

Not even close. I will leave my personal opinion out of this reply and simply stick to facts that anyone can look up.
Fact #1. Ron Paul is pulling in better numbers so far than he did in his 2008 Campaign.
Fact #2. Ron Paul stayed in the race in 2008 until June.
We have seen primaries and caucuses in 4 states out of 50,

but overall his performance has not made him stand out any more than in 2008, his performances in the recent states, South Carolina, Florida and now Nevada are historically normal compared to his previous performances.
I don't know how Paul supporters can continue rationalizing his performances like this if he can't even come second in major battle ground states let alone win. A state where the demographics should favour him. If he continues performing like this, I certainly won't blame the media for giving him less time than the front runners.
And what did this do for him in the long run? I have no doubt that Paul will stay in the race till the convention, but if he continues performing like this, he will come to Tampa with little relevance or influence to make a deal.
John King was talking about Washington State and how Ron Paul may actually win there, it is still early days, but you cannot deny that his performance so far have been poor. If Gingrich came in the same position as Paul, there would be many calling for him to drop out of the race now.
