Has Ron Paul Lost Control Of His Followers?

 

By now, the Ron Paul campaign’s plan to storm the delegate selection process of smaller states is well-known. Paul’s camp first took the majority of delegates in Minnesota, and has since pulled off similar feats in Nevada, Louisiana and Maine—despite the fact that Paul didn’t win any of these caucuses*—with more states on the way. If Paul’s people gather enough delegate positions, and Mitt Romney doesn’t get the necessary number of delegates in the first round of voting at the Republican National Convention in August, these delegates could cause serious trouble for Romney…Read More

Romney Sweeps Northeastern Primaries, Critz Pulls Off An Upset, And Gingrich Reconsiders His Adverbs

 

Mitt Romney swept Tuesday’s primaries, easily winning New York, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania, and all but certifying his nomination for the Republican Party.

The only state even in contention was Delaware, where Gingrich’s beleaguered campaign was making a last stand. (Seriously? Who draws the line at Delaware?) But Romney trounced the panda poet with more than double the vote…Read More

5 Things To Watch For In Tonight’s Primaries

 

Primaries! Stay excited people, there’s still plenty of politics to obsess over, as New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Delaware and Connecticut vote tonight in the GOP presidential primary for a total of 231 delegates. (Don’t knock it; that’s 10% of the total.) Mitt Romney is the presumptive nominee, but he hasn’t won over his party yet, Gingrich still might pull off an upset, Ron Paul is gearing up the protest vote, and a showdown between a Blue Dog and a labor-backed challenger in PA might decide the Democrats’ election year narrative.

Here’s a rundown of what to watch for…Read More

Ron Paul’s Not Quitting Cuz Screw You

 

This clip features the two common arguments circulating round ye olde Reddit.com/r/ronpaul: that the libertarianish candidate’s big crowds are indicative of a groundswell—Paul has been attracting thousands at isolated events (though nowhere near the numbers Obama regularly drew in 2008)—and that he has more delegates than anybody realizes, as his supporters are trying to snatch up delegate positions to potentially wrest a few states at the GOP convention…Read More

Ron Paul’s Expensive Failure

Ron Paul still seems in it for the long haul, but more as a barnacle than a serious candidate. After 29 contests, Paul has only 51 delegates, fewer than 1/10 of those held by frontrunner Romney, and not even within striking distance of third-place Newt Gingrich, a zombie of a candidate. Gingrich can at least put a couple of states in his win column: Paul has not finished first in a single primary or caucus…Read More
