• You’re absolutely right Harold, that 15 million means, Ron Paul will be in for the long-haul. I just can’t see an antiwar candidate winning the Republican nomination.
    I can see, Ron Paul, coming in third in New Hampshire, where he is very popular. That is an independent state with very little party affiliation.
    IMO opinion, Ron Paul would do better running as an independent, but that would just assure a Democratic landslide. He says he will not run as an independent but he will be a force to be reckoned with especially, the next debate, where he will get more airtime as the candidates thin out.

  • Mike Huckabee, is completely unacceptable to large portions of the Republican party. Iowa has a much higher percentage of evangelicals than will primaries coming forward. Huckabee ain’t going to win New Hampshire and has little national organization.

    Exit polls suggest that Dr. Paul WON Independent Voters, who are the key crossover constituency that a Republican candidate is going to need to win in the general election. We have a wide open race right now. We are likely to be top 3 in Wyoming.

    Dr Paul. should also do fairly well in South Carolina and Nevada, where he has spent time building his base while everyone else was in Iowa. Besides Romney & Guiliani virtually every other candidate is broke and with the exception of Huckabee, they won’t pull in more money based on their Iowa performance.

    Meanwhile, Dr. Paul has over 15 millions in the bank and with his huge grassroots base, we can easily raise millions more. That money will matter a lot more in states that, unlike Iowa don’t allow candidates to meet every voter. This is where we begin to use our finances to our advantage.

    While it is still an uphill fight for the nomination (as it always was) we are coming out of Iowa in a better position than we came in and we are well placed to do some real damage in the primaries going forward. The Revolution Continues!

    Long live the Republic,
