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.

Which does Ron Paul no good. The point I'm making is that there is no voter fraud preventing Ron Paul from getting the nomination. His own supporters simply aren't going out there and actually voting. This is why Ron Paul will never win with his current tactics. He either needs to be the first candidate to galvanize the youth vote into actually voting at their full potential or he needs to find a way to start making inroads with the older members of our population.

I think that in our society today we have a tendency to have to rationalize everything. I'm sorry, but Mitt Romney is a much better Candidate than Ron Paul. He is younger, more energetic, he doesn't get caught up in all the young people hype that Ron Paul does and he has more money and more support from big business, making him better and more influential on many fronts. Ron Paul's ideals are completely unrealistic and would lead us into a tyrannical socialistic society where freedom is a thing of the past. Eventually we will have to accept Ron Paul is not good for America, and that is the real reason no one is voting for him.
