Comment: In the first round

(See in situ)

In the first round

The "plurality" refers to the plurality of DELEGATES from 5 states.
This is required for a candidate to get NOMINATED at the GOP convention to be in the running for their eventual winner.

The actual straw poll popular voting in the states doesn't count as any criteria, except as it may affect the delegate numbers from certain states with rules like that.
Ron Paul has a plurality of delegates from at least 5 states.
He will be nominated at the convention. And if it goes past the first round of voting, he might win.
