Here are some facts about Romney's support against Ron Paul's support thus far in the primaries:
In terms of hard
delegates, delegates that are pledged, that are highly unlikely to switch, Romney has more than 700
Paul only has 48
Romney gained more than 6.3 million votes behind him, Paul has over 1.5 million votes behind him.
Romney has an estimated 28 states that he has won, Paul has an estimated 2 (although the convention may change). Romney could lose half the those
states and still be well within the lead, it will only take two states for Paul.
So why, given these facts, are Paul supporters crying foul of the elections with which they have 0 evidence that Paul is even close to Romney in this
race? (And no, crowd sizes at events are not evidence). What exactly will it take for Paul supporters to come to terms with the fact that Romney won
and Paul lost?
1. Apparently we can't trust the media (unless the media says something favourable about Ron Paul)
2. We can't trust the GOP authorities because, well, it's all some conspiracy.
3. We can't trust the delegate count at all because, well you know, there's no such thing as pledged delegates in the minds of Paul supporters,
So what else is there? By the sounds of it, the only way Paul supporters will accept that the GOP primaries were fair would be if Ron Paul won, this
is what I see. Can any Paul supporter explain to me here what would convince you that Romney won fair and square? Any??
