Because in the Caucus it is a two step process. Supporters give their speech (doesn't have to be a delegate) for their candidates, the Caucus holds a preference poll vote. The results are counted and announced. Most of the time the majority of people leave after this, the chair will most likely tell them they can because the rest of the meeting is for "party business".
Seriously? So you have been to HOW many state caucuses? HOW many district and precinct caucuses? HOW many primaries? HOW do you know that after the popular vote that MOST people just leave? SHOW me this! PLEASE!
What to do at the Caucus:
First, vote for Ron Paul in the Caucus' "Presidential Straw Poll."
* After voting takes place, most folks will leave - DON'T!
"That's standard procedure at all of these straw polls, that campaigns that want to win go out and recruit people and provide free tickets for them to come and vote," Santorum explained. "And there's nothing wrong with that, and that's absolutely a strategy. We just think just don't think that's a good use of our resources. Gov. Romney obviously may have a different idea."

I don't accept what you are saying...because you are wrong.
It's really that simple.
Your example of Obama winning more delegates than his popular vote proves you do not understand what I am getting at. They are apples and oranges.
You go on and keep believing whatever it is you believe about Ron Paul's delegates, his chances, and his ability to use the same strategy in Primaries as he does in Caucuses.
When he falls way short of winning the nomination...just don't be surprised.edit on 5-3-2012 by OutKast Searcher because: (no reason given)
