Can Ron Paul win in November WITHOUT the GOP nomination? I think so - correct me if I'm wrong.Submitted by ecard71 on Sun, 07/08/2012 - 17:47
I keep reading from different people stating that they'll either
A; HAVE TO vote for Gary Johnson because a Ron Paul write-in won't count,
B; Write in Dr. Paul even though the write-in won't count,
C; Vote for either Romney or Obama because neither Dr. Paul or Johnson "can win"
According to this back in 2008, ONLY 10 = TEN states allowed write-ins;
But according to this in 2012, 42 = FORTY TWO states ALLOW write-ins;
And this in 2012, 44 = FORTY FOUR states ALLOW write-ins;
So if this is accurate, wouldn't it be logical to say that if your state allows a write-in, to vote for Dr. Paul? And if your state doesn't allow write-ins, then to vote for Gary Johnson, thus giving either Obama and Romney the LEAST possible votes in those states? 44 states is A LOT and Dr. Paul can win this WITHOUT the GOP nomination. Correct? Am I missing something?
