Paul has a great base, and huge momentum from the Tea Party. He is gaining support from the younger crowds, which is a boon to his campaign. Those younger people have the networking chops that it takes to spread his message. They got O elected in 2008, and whomever they side with this time, will have a great shot. They see Newt and Mitt as more of the same dirty politicians. They understand Paul is different. All those young people will follow Paul around, and beat the streets for him. An invigorated base is the best thing for Paul. Huckabee was ok, but he didn't have the enthusiasm Paul does this time.
