3. GOP loyalists will vote for Ron Paul over Obama if the GOP selects him.
And here is where I think you are very very wrong.
The GOP hasn't selected Ron Paul...I'll play fantasy world and pretend that Ron Paul has a possibility of getting the nomination.
You then have over 85% of the GOP primary voters who knows that their vote did not go to Ron Paul and it will be exposed that his supporters sneaked
in as delegates and voted against the will of the voters.
If Ron Paul would become the nominee...I see a very very low GOP voter turnout in the general election.
I didn't say that the GOP has selected Ron Paul nor do I think they will select Ron Paul. I said
"3. GOP loyalists will vote for Ron Paul over Obama if
the GOP selects him." Meaning that the majority of Republicans will vote for who ever
the GOP selects, however that is not the case with Ron Paul supporters.
Ron Paul supporters are not party loyalist and most don't see a difference between Romney and Obama nor do they believe in voting for the lesser
evil. Hence, the GOP is most likely to lose those votes by picking Romney. Where if
they would have picked Paul as there candidate that
wouldn't be a concern.
The only reason that Paul has done badly on the popular vote polls is because the special interest groups and multinational corporations that control
the MSM and including the GOP itself, has done an incredible job at telling people that Ron Paul is dangerous,un-electable, or just plainly ignoring
him. Where the MSM has acted like an infomercial for Romney. Even the left leaning MSM has covered Ron Paul in the same way as the Right leaning
Had the GOP actually endorsed Paul from the beginning like any of the other candidates including DumbArse Perry and Bachman or even the non candidate
like Palin and Trump the GOP would not have to worry about loosing the Paul votes.
