Are you guys focusing on the wrong digit in your delegate math?Submitted by The Shazad on Fri, 04/13/2012 - 22:00
Going after a couple delegates in Colorado might affect the ones' place in the final delegate count. Doing that in every state caucus and convention will affect the tens' place. But to stop Mitt Romney, Ron Paul has got to start affecting the hundreds' place. I'm struggling to see what the ultimate strategy is there.
I could understand all of this excitement if we were down to 3 candidates and it was December or January. But at this point, what is the real strategy to stop Romney from hitting 1144? Winning the delegate total in Missouri or Maine is not going to affect a thing (outside of the wrong digits). What is the plan to win some of the states on April 24th, for example? You might celebrate 5 delegates tomorrow in Colorado, and Romney is going to celebrate 200 delegates a week and a half from now, unless someone really steps up their game. Is Ron Paul going to do that?
