The Paulites are Coming
Slowly, but surely, Paul is gaining the media’s respect at the last leg of this Republican campaign. Paul will be the last man standing after Gingrich drops out this week. The American Spectator concludes:
But even when they were disappointed by their popular vote totals, Paul supporters stayed behind and tried to win delegates at the low-turnout state and congressional district conventions. This cost-effective insurgent strategy seemed stalled, but now appears to be finally paying some dividends.
Many other Republicans are demoralized. The near-certain nominee doesn’t excite them. There are fewer high-profile Tea Party primaries than two years ago. The other conservative presidential candidates have been beaten.
Ron Paul’s supporters remain. They are still trying to win delegates and reshape the Republican Party.
