It would partially convince me if Romney could get more than a couple of hundred people at his rallies.
The fact that Paul is getting thousands and Romnney is at best getting a few hundred who are mostly there because he's visiting their factory etc shows me everything I need to know about the two.

It took me 45 minutes to push through both doc (total)... I just posted that and you're just debunking it with no sources links... just opinion... just spouting off... did you even read it?
research it instead of.... again... being intellectually dishonest.
If we assume that precinct size has no material correlation with partial count results, as shown historically, we can bring nifty maths to bear. A math trick (called hypergeometric distribution law applied to exhaustive counting)allows calculating the probability of a candidate's reaching his known final result from any point in the chart, given how badly he is lagging or ahead.
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??

So what if Romney wins primaries, Paul wins caucuses. If Romney was really the man that people support, why aren't people supporting him at the caucuses? Let's see how the delegate selection actually goes in all the states that Romney "swept" last night, before we come to any conclusions. It wouldn't surprise me if Paul dominates every single convention the same way he has been doing to others for these past couple of weeks.
The State Chairman shall allocate Delegate positions between the Candidates accurately reflecting the division of votes in the statewide primary. Each person nominated as a Delegate at either the District or State Convention must have publicly declared as a representative of a Candidate on the Presidential Preference Primary ballot prior to the election of Delegates to the National Convention. [North Carolina Republican Party Plan of Organization. ARTICLE VII. F.] [North Carolina General Statutes, specifically Section 163-213.8]
Tuesday 8 May 2012: 28 of West Virginia's 31 delegates to the Republican National Convention are elected in the West Virginia Presidential Primary. Each delegate candidate is individually listed on the ballot along with their presidential preference. The candidates receiving the most votes in each contest is elected.
9 district delegates (3 delegates are elected in each of the state's 3 Congressional Districts).
19 at-large delegates (10 at-large plus 9 bonus) are elected statewide.
In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the West Virginia's Republican Party, will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position.
Tuesday 8 May 2012: 27 of Indiana's 46 delegates to the Republican National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders in today's Indiana Presidential Primary.
27 district delegates are to be allocated to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the 9 congressional districts: each congressional district is assigned 3 National Convention delegates and the presidential contender receiving the greatest number of votes in that district will receive all 3 of that district's National Convention delegates. [Rule 9-29]
In addition, each county directly elects delegates to the State Convention. [Rule 9-3, IC 3-10-1-4]
I am an Romney supporter. Let me be the first. I am for anyone against Obama.
I find it illogical that those who claim to be Ron Paul Libertarians who are supposedly strict Constitutionalists are willing to vote for the man who is destroying the Constitution if their first choice doesn't win.
