What do you think now that Santorum has dropped out (and Gingrich will too) just as the other thread I started about these two was about)?

Anyway, even when Santorum was still in the race Paul always had more delegates (the second most next to Romney) if the truth be told. Problem is the MSM hasn't been reporting the truth.

This interview, was full of educating the interviewer.
That was an interesting interview! There were some different questions for a change.
The interviewer was open to learning and graciously admitted his mistakes in phraseology.

emily, you know I'm a huge Ron Paul fan....but I would like to know where you get any proof that Paul is second to Mittens in delegates. Last I heard, they weren't even counted yet. So how can we know who truly has what?

If you look though my posts I posted a YouTube video where someone had painstakenly researched sites where this info was available. It showed all the sites and the delegate counts. It all looked pretty credible to me. Add that to the grin Doug Wead always has on his face that says "we know something you don't know" and I thought it sounded more than reasonable. Especially when you add on top of all that the huge throngs showing up to see Paul. All that adds up!

we do best in caucus states and with Santorum dropping out (who did 2nd best getting delegates in caucus states) Ron has a better chance of getting the plurality of delegates in at least 5 states

But again, if they have not been counted yet, how do we know who has what? I see a lot of speculation, but if they haven't been counted yet....????

I think the whole projection issue is abused.

They (the delegates) have been staying in touch with the campaign I'm sure. That is how they know how many delegates they have.

Exactly. Most of the Ron Paul delegates stay in touch with the local campaign organizers. The campaign people know the numbers. We just had a big Ron Paul delegate meeting a couple days ago to prepare for our MN congressional district convention coming up.
