For him to run 3rd party would mean he knows he will lose but he would still pull votes away from the Republican Party at a crucial time when conservatives want to get the most radical, leftist, Marxist, Progressive, socialist President in American history out of office. It would be an absurd move. (unless he thinks he can pull votes from Democrats too)
I checked a Tea Party website and they are not really big on Romney, but I'm pretty sure they still would prefer a Republican right now.
The time to form a new 3rd party affiliation is not just before an election. Tea Party formed after the election of BO not before. If Romeny gets elected and doesn't make good on his promises, the Tea Party will revolt.edit on 1-9-2012 by ThirdEyeofHorus because: (no reason given)edit on 1-9-2012 by ThirdEyeofHorus because: (no reason given)

just to clarify.
he never said he wouldn't run 3rd, he has always consistently said that nothing is absolute and he did not have plans to do it.

Just watching the delegate count confirms what Michael Steele says.
That was awful ... the GOP didn't even acknowledge the Ron Paul count.
They ignored it when counting the delegate count back on stage.
