Wrong, most of the delegates are proportional, but not yet assigned. These numbers are completely different from any other msm network. They have no idea who has what delegates, because they haven't been awarded yet, but Paul knows what he's got
This is only for Caucus states...and the Caucus states don't have as many or enough delegates to even come close to winning the nomination. All Caucus states combined delegates are 439 I believe.
In short...that means that if Ron Paul can't win a bunch of Primary states...then he has no chance of winning even if he won ever single delegate from every single caucus state.
Just thought you should be aware of that fact.

I'm not negative on Paul, just realistic. Paul supporters are way to touchy and angry. So touchy in fact you can't have a factual conversation. I actually like the guy.
I'm far from anti-Paul to begin with. I just prefer truth to fantasy.
I can't imagine why you think you can attract more people to Ron Paul this way. I doubt he's exactly thrilled about the way some of his supporters are acting. It's as if you think you can force people to support Paul by insulting them.
I meant what I said about a Libertarian getting up to 12% national support among likely voters being very good. That is nothing to sneeze at.
Read the OP and look at it from the perspective of people who have not decided yet. It sounds like kids on a playground saying "my candidate got more people at an event than your candidate Your just stupid" I'm sure that is exactly how to not help Ron Paul. Embarrass him maybe, but not help him.

Apparently RP supports are just very vocal and passionate. I forget what words MSM uses but it's usually stuff like "zealous" or "activist" which makes them sound frankly like a bunch of crazy people. So yeah that's how they explain away RP pulling a huge crowd. Nice going MSM.
If this nut job is so popular, why isn't he winning every primary state there is?

Hi all you at ATS i am fairly new to this but just wanted to give my opinion on the matter! I'm from England and have been keeping a eye on the GOP race as this seems pretty interesting, the first thing i would like to say is this whole thing has brought to my attention the corrupt and biased media in both of our countries and i came to this conclusion from the countless (and i really mean countless) video's that show and prove this. I watched V for vendetta the other day and i thought that is the USA down to a T. The overwhelming support for Ron Paul is very real and i would like to send my love and support to Ron Paul and his supporters.
