It is clear that the media has put too much emphasis on the straw polls as they have had little bearing on the delegate selection process in most states.
So if Ron Paul has the most delegates on 3/6/12 but doesn't win a non binding straw poll he should quit while he is winning?
I think you have gotten some things confused.
What counts is binding elections.
His support base is about 10% of the population.
You can't base predictions of "how everyone votes" on "what me and my friends like."
If Paul loses all the states and somehow gets picked to run for President on the basis of what the delegates are voting (which means they're going against the wishes of the people who they're supposed to represent)

But don't you think a candidate should rise above ANY hype?
The media was against the idea of Obama winning over Hillary. Hillary was their choice, not the choice of most Democratic voters.
