Ron Paul Could Still Win Enough Delegates To Deny Mitt Romney The Republican Nomination

Despite what you may have heard from the mainstream media, Mitt Romney does not have the Republican nomination locked up. In fact, he is rapidly losing delegates that almost everyone assumed that he already had in the bag. To understand why this is happening, you have to understand the delegate selection process. Each state has different rules for selecting delegates to the Republican national convention, and in many states the "voting" done by the public does not determine the allocation of delegates to particular candidates at all. And the truth is that delegates are the only thing that really matters in this race. In state after state, the Ron Paul campaign is focusing on the delegate selection process with laser-like precision, and it is paying off big time. At this point, there is still a legitimate chance that Ron Paul will be able to win enough delegates to deny Mitt Romney the nomination on the first ballot at the Republican national convention in Tampa. If Romney does not have the 1,144 delegates that he needs on the first ballot, then it becomes a brokered convention and anything becomes possible at that point.

I'm sticking with my

I'm sticking with my projection of 1200+ for Dr. Paul in Tampa, that's before the first ballot.

Remember that we are competing for 1,144 delegates of 2,286 so there is still plenty of delegates to harvest by Dr. Paul.

If you believe what I believe and see what I see, then you will clearly understand why Romney does not even have half of the 1,144 delegates needed, that is of course after all the cheating and manipulations done by his campaign.

It's not over until we say it's over!

MITT's 1st Round DENIAL

Equates to an "OPEN CONVENTION"..
OPEN..as in Transparent
OPEN...as in HONEST.

And the "Surgical Strikes" achieved by the PEOPLE and Ron Paul at these local and soon state-wide events will reach the National Level.

It's not UN-Usual...It was achieved by McCain in 2008.
But this time.......
....It's "Of, By, and For the People"!

Freedom brings PEOPLE TOGETHER!

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

Good Point

In a Brokered Convention, A "back room" delegation decides on a nominee of their choosing (i.e. Jeb Bush, Gov. Chris Christie, etc.). In an Open Convention, each states elected/appointed delegates vote for their nominee of choosing. This process is done accordingly state by state until all 50 states have completed this selection process.

I would't worry about...

The brokered issue anyhow. IF we had enough to deny, then we would also have enough to nominate wholeheartedly with our stealths in place. There could be a majority. I think a brokered arises when no one can decide on anyone and then they just start pulling names out of their asses.

Either Way Its Worth It

I agree, but either way it justifies us pushing hard all the way for every delegate so that we can bring as much power to bear as possible for both President and Veep.

I just feel like the momentum is piling up huge for our cause - we just may not see the obvious results this year.

Yes, but it's not a brokered convention,

it's an OPEN convention. So many people using the wrong word.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Thanks. I'll start trying to remember to use the right word.

It really does matter.

Negotiation

Either way, the point is, it'll be negotiated only because we have enough delegates that they need us.

I suspect there's no point in a "brokered" convention on many points, because the delegates are individualistic and won't necessarily go along with the brokers, should there be any.
