Despite what you may have heard from the mainstream media, Mitt Romney does not have the Republican nomination locked up. In fact, he is rapidly losing delegates that almost everyone assumed that he already had in the bag. To understand why this is happening, you have to understand the delegate selection process.
Each state has different rules for selecting delegates to the Republican national convention, and in many states the “voting” done by the public does not determine the allocation of delegates to particular candidates at all. And the truth is that delegates are the only thing that really matters in this race. In state after state, the Ron Paul campaign is focusing on the delegate selection process with laser-like precision, and it is paying off big time.
At this point, there is still a legitimate chance that Ron Paul will be able to win enough delegates to deny Mitt Romney the nomination on the first ballot at the Republican national convention in Tampa. If Romney does not have the 1,144 delegates that he needs on the first ballot, then it becomes a brokered convention and anything becomes possible at that point.
I'm talking about Romney hitting the "magic number". At this point, it's inevitable that Paul will at least get a speaking spot at the convention. The rest we will have to see.

Thanx for the info OutKast. Good News for Romney! Bad News for Paul. I am not hearing any conspiracies this time around...It's funny but this isn't even on the front page of google news.
Well to be fair Romney is not even bothering to campaign anymore for the primaries and was off in Michigan working towards the election. I have no idea if Paul is still campaigning or not although the fact his numbers are coming at the same level as people who have quit the race I have to assume he has also stopped. What is their really to cover.

I can follow that reasoning, what I find hard to follow is an Obama supporter worrying about the GOP primary results???
I am on the sidelines here myself, hoping for a new status quo... but I wonder why you would feel the need to post results of the opposition party's primaries?
Why would you ?
What are your thoughts on how we.. as a people... can get past the status quo ?

It's not about Obama, it's about OS's hate for Ron Paul, always has been.... How are Obama's projections? Since you are one of his supporters where are his numbers? and where's his thread?. It's alright though, at least the RP supporters have real life answers to why they support him, not uhhhhhh Hope and Change that's it, you ask in 08 why they voted for Obama and that was it, no reason, no why, just hope and change..... Hope and Change of what I say?

I respectfully disagree with thinking that the spirit of America = getting what I can get... which is what I took from your post..
If I was incorrect with my assessment, please explain ..
Not looking for confrontation... looking for understanding...
