I really do think that, if he took the nomination, Ron Paul could potentially win the general. He couldn’t have done it in ‘08—he was simply too far out back then—but there is a slim chance that if he got there this year, he could do it. It’s definitely not a 100% possibility; I’m not saying he would, I’m saying he could. Why do I think so? Because of things like this, which I found in National Review Online last week:
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I wanted to share with you some of the "Memphis for Ron Paul" material we custom made, ordered and just received. A few weeks ago, one of my Dental School classmates teamed up with a University of Memphis student to organized a group whose sole intention is to promote Ron Paul in the Memphis, TN area.

In the latest Reason-Rupe survey, respondents who self-identify as Republicans were asked if they were voting today in the 2012 Republican primary for president, which of the following candidates would they favor? Ron Paul and Mitt Romney tied for first place among Republican respondents aged 18-29 with 19 percent each. Older Americans are most likely to favor Mitt Romney or Rick Perry. Young Americans are also more likely than older Americans to say they do not know for whom they will vote, at 22 percent.
After watching the LSU speech, I am now absolutely convinced that the youth movement and the colleges are the keys to victory for Ron Paul. THIS is how we turn the tables and win this election! THIS is how we beat Romney and the establishment! Here's why...
I've been in Colorado for the last two weeks spreading the message of Ron Paul (and other topics I write about). I've met with the Libertarian Party, Green Party (wore my Ron Paul t-shirt), Buffs for Paul, Liberty on the Rocks and the "Left Hand of Liberty." As well I've met a number of people while traveling, and have had some amazing conversations. Posted an article with my notes, links and thoughts.
I've been working on this article for the last week while traveling around Denver. Started on the Amtrak last weekend, and finally sat myself down for the night to finish it. I hope this helps bring the support of women to the campaign:
‘Youth for Ron Paul’ to organize, mobilize voters
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign announced today the national “Youth for Ron Paul” effort to organize and mobilize the increasing number of youth who support the 12-term Congressman from Texas’s bid for the presidency. Young people ages 18-29 were a key demographic in President Barack Obama’s 2008 victory, a group he won nearly two to one over Senator John McCain, and this voting group is expected to play an important role in deciding the 2012 election.
This announcement follows a blowout victory in the New Hampshire Young Republicans GOP presidential straw poll last month in New Castle, NH, a key primary state. Rep. Paul won with 45 percent of the votes cast, defeating his closest competition, Mitt Romney, who garnered a mere 10 percent of the votes.
