Nevada Straw Poll: Romney Shows Up, Ron Paul Wins

Ron Paul won the GOP presidential straw poll conducted by organizers at the Conservative Leadership Conference held at the Nugget Casino this weekend “by a large margin,” according to an organizer.Paul won with 32 percent, McCain came in second with 17 percent, Hunter was third with 15 percent, and "Romney was in the lower numbers because people came out for his event but they just didn't vote for him," according to organizer and McCain operative Paul Jackson.

Until Ron Paul wins one vote of an actual real Republican, I think your enthusiasm is unwarranted.

Telling the democrats to corrupt the Republican primaries is easy. Winning actual Republican votes will prove much, much, much more difficult.

Good luck with your dilusion.

Again, I don't think you understand how politics works. You understand that people can move from party to party in our system, right? If you don't like what the party you voted for last time is doing, you can vote with the other party. You don't seem to be grasping this concept.

Also, on Ron Paul. There is a period of time before actual votes are made. We are in that period now. You may not think that looking at trends in this period is important, but the media does, and they give time based on this. The time they give creates its own momentum, which turns into your actual votes.

Now giving my support to an underdog is a "dilusion"?
