He is not an establishment Republican candidate so no I seriously doubt he will win. But I believe that was only part, the "if everything goes
perfectly," part of his plan to run to begin with. The more delegates he can win the greater voice he will have at the convention, which means more
of the GOP will have to listen and whoever the nominee is will have to adopt more of RP's policies just so he can have the GOP's support. So I believe
his plan all along has been to simply garnish delagate support. Most all the states that have had primaries or caucuses have no binding delagates so
the majority of them to a large degree are still open to support whomever, and like the voter will probably wait till the last minute to make up their
minds in who to support as this nomination process has been nasty from the get go.
Going back to not being an establishment candidate, this is an excellent opportunity to get another voice to the forefront that doesn't speak on
establishment terms, doesn't go with the status quo, and doesn't follow an agenda, contrary to what others may believe. And although that may not
spell a Ron Paul/whoever ticket, what that does mean is that we are witnessing conflict and possibly change within the Republican party, or moreover a
return to what true conservatism stood for. So I am quite happy about that and see it as positive and the more delagates he wins the greater the
opportunity there is for that to happen.
And also let us not forget there is still the notion he may run 3rd party, i wrote earlier that his donation numbers are down however I just found out
he raised 4.5 million in January...pretty good for someone running in fourth place. And also there is the AmericansElect.org ballot he could possibly
be on, although the media will probably conclude hackers spammed his name a million times, but still nothing is written in stone.
