This wouldn't be the first, nor the last time, that I have been wrong. I don't doubt at all that there are many people in your shoes. My opinion is just that the number of people who wouldn't take Paul seriously as a presidential candidate is still rather massive, despite the impressive growth his movement has seen. Compound that with the massive amount of internal fighting and hostility toward Paul that would take place in the Republican party if he were to emerge as the nominee without actually winning the primaries (for example, showing up with 1000 stealth delegates at the convention), I don't see any chances of the Republican party coalescing behind him. As I said, though, if suddenly voting patterns shift, and Paul wins most of the remaining primaries, then that's a different story.
