Agree with you about the reality...

...disagree about the appearance. On select issues and at certain times he makes himself appear mainstream in the interest of practical politics (the source of anti-Rand sentiments among some Paulites), but his image is still far from that of a generic Republican. He's well known by the public as a leader of the more staunchly conservative faction of the GOP. A generic Republican, by contrast, would be someone like McCain or Graham. Just read some MSM articles: Rand is often mentioned (along with fakes Ryan and Rubio) as a conservative challenger to the Republican establishment.
