Is Second Place Acceptable?Submitted by Progressives4Paul on Mon, 03/12/2012 - 21:57
The reason I ask is because second place in delegates is doable and maybe even likely, but first place is extremely improbable.
If second place is acceptable, what do you expect Ron Paul will get from the Republican Party?
If second place is the best he can do, should Ron Paul choose to drop out of the Republican race and get his name on the ballots in all states asap before filing deadlines? Here they are: http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/fe2012/2012pdates.pdf
If Ron Paul stays in through the convention, do you think he should run as a write candidate? Do you think he gets more votes as write-in or with his name on the ballot?
If the extremely improbable were to happen and Ron Paul won the requisite number of delegates to be nominated, do you think the GOP would actually nominate him or do you think the GOP would find a way to deny him the nomination even if he won 1144 delegates?
