It is also clear that Paul's main supporters are young. Now let's look at the data from Nevada. Only 8% were from the 17-29 demographic. If Paul has
the enormous base that people on here claim then they're clearly not voting in these primaries.
What is clearer is that the "youth", especially the demographic you are referring to are non-existent until November. This is in large due to their
anemic and failing understanding of how the process works on bringing forth their parties ticket.
For number junkies:
In 2010, Nevada had a population of 2.7 million. Approximately 2 million can be considered voter eligible. Of course since we are talking about the
Republican Caucus, you must be a registered Republican to attend the caucus.
Nevada has approximately 400,000 registered Republicans; of which the 18-34 demographic has about 90,000 registered Republicans.
That means a whopping 7200 people statewide showed up to support the glorious Ron Paul.
ETA: The 7200 number is the approximate 8% of the "youth" vote. The main point was out of 90,000 people, they failed to galvanize and engage in the
"democracy" they so cry for.
