Given the current state of the campaign, Romney only has 300 delegates. A second ballot is a certainty at this point.

According to people I know who were there, there was more than Ron Paul's people behind this. They are getting assistance with their stupidity if you know what I mean.

RULE NO. 11

Candidate Support


(a) The Republican National Committee shall not, without the prior written and filed approval of all members of the Republican National Committee from the state involved, contribute money or in-kind aid to any candidate for any public or party office except the nominee of the Republican Party or a candidate who is unopposed in the Republican primary after the filing deadline for that office. In those states where state law establishes a nonpartisan primary in which Republican candidates could participate, but in which the general election may not include a Republican candidate, the candidate endorsed by a convention held under the authority of the state Republican Party shall be recognized by the Republican National Committee as the Republican nominee.

(b) No state Republican Party rule or state law shall be observed that allows persons who have participated or are participating in the selection of any nominee of a party other than the Republican Party, including, but not limited to, through the use of a multiparty primary or similar type ballot, to participate in the selection of a nominee of the Republican Party for that general election. No person nominated in violation of this rule shall be recognized by the Republican National Committee as the nominee of the Republican Party from that state.

I am glad to hear this. I just wish more people would wake up.

Both parties are good at controlling convention uproar.
The typical solution is to simply let the Paul supporters to let them yell and demonstrate for as long as they want to. Eventually, they will yell themselves out, and the convention will get back to work.

The longest I ever saw were the Reaganistas in 1976. Their demonstration lasted over 30 minutes.
