Does RP2012 have a "path to the nomination" mapped out?Submitted by samadamscw on Wed, 09/21/2011 - 04:22
I hear lots of talk about how the early primaries might play out. Of course, I understand, pundits discount Ron Paul in all of them. (except maybe Iowa) But I've yet to hear of anything about a strategy for securing the nomination. Is this simply going to be a shotgun approach and let's just hope we "do our best" in each state as it comes up, or is there some actual strategy about how it might be possible to win this or that early primary?
Politico doesn't seem to have too much in the way of recent polling by State, and other newer polls are all of the meaningless "national" vote. About a month ago, Paul was doing respectable in Iowa and gaining ground in New Hamshire, but his numbers from late June-August in Nevada, South Carolina and Florida are still way back in the single digits. (to be fair, his numbers nationally were this low at that time too but are now also near 15% to match his Iowa and NH numbers)
So, is concern for an actual strategy to win certain primaries and thus delegates founded? Or is there something in place that just isn't being discussed?
Can anyone from those early states report in with local polling if any that is more recent?
