Ron Paul was easy to bury in the news cycle. He became quite popular in the news right before the iowa caucus when he was in the lead. Those racist newsletters were ran on the news cycles, interviews where all they did was ask "do you disavow".
If he would have had a consistent lead in the polling it would have been different.
the 2012 election was different, each candidate was cycled up ahead of romney by positive coverage and then berated for a couple weeks causing them to crater.
Trump was simply too big and popular to ignore, thus a different strategy was used, but it failed.
