Big concern regarding RP and the GOP ticket in 2012Submitted by PzldPtrt on Fri, 04/15/2011 - 10:20
My main concern over Ron Paul's potential to win the GOP nomination in 2012 is that members of the Republican party and independents who could vote Republican in 2012 seem extremely divided and as great as Dr. Paul's message is, it still isn't mainstream and there is a perception that he is "unelectable". Because of these factors I don't think it will be easy to pull people over to his side. A lot of people are just as passionate about people like Palin, Bachmann and Huckabee as we are about Dr. Paul, others will stick with Romney because he's "moderate" and "can beat Obama", and still others will vote for Trump because he's famous and they like his TV show and the fact that he talks a big game about China and Iran.
I think about the only chance that Dr. Paul has to win is if Palin and other huge names endorse him from the start and I don't see that happening. I see a lot of people sticking with their candidate and votes among the candidates being extremely divided.
