Paul & Romney Voter Growth (or not so much)

Both Paul and Romney competed in the 2008 and 2012 Republican primaries. If we look at how much effect 5 years of campaigning has had with the 2 candidates, we see:

Ron Paul
Iowa: 2008 - 10% vs. 2012 – 21% This is >100% Growth
NH: 2008 – 8% vs. 2012 – 23% This is ~300% Growth

Mitt Romney
Iowa: 2008 – 25% vs. 2012 – 25% This is no change
NH: 2008 – 31% vs. 2012 – 39% This is 25% Growth

If we are going to talk about candidates having a ceiling, Romney may have hit his. Ron Paul continues to grow at triple digit rates.
