I have my doubts that ron paul will win. If I had to pick a republican candidate, it would be him, but I just don't think it will happen

He should have stayed in the race and pulled votes away from Romney. That man must not be allowed in our White House.

Don't be so silly Geo. We all know this was a direct result of Stephen Colbert, and his Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC.

Anyone who supported Hunstman is going to support Romney. Every single "pawn" that goes down means more support for Romney. People aren't going to suddenly wake up and say, "Well gee, I'm no longer feeling Republican today." Ron Paul represents Libertarian views. The Republicans of today aren't "old school conservatives."

There's a theory that Ron Paul will gather as many delegates as he can for the convention in order to significantly alter the Republican platform to be more libertarian-leaning. After all, if Romney wins, he'll need some way to get a Ron Paul endorsement to keep most of his supporters who hate the establishment, which could include promising to audit the federal reserve or end the Drug War (although I'd be skeptical of Romney ever honoring such a promise) or picking Rand Paul as his Vice Presidential candidate, despite the little political power the VP actually has.

Michael Moore said that Huntsman was the only GOP candidate that could get Democratic votes in the election. Oh well we all knew that Huntsman wouldn't stay.

Michael Moore says a lot of stuff.

Either why, the fact that he would have gotten the most Democratic votes shows why he dropped out.

Here is the latest poll in S.C.:
01/15 Insider Adv-- Romney 32, Gingrich 21, Paul 14, Santorum 13

It appears that Newt Gingrich is the last hope for the conservatives. Ron Paul and Rick Santorum will likely battle for third. Rick Santorum has now faced a slow demise in the polls and now is no longer a real front runner. He still has support just not as much as when he left Iowa. It seems the conservatives are mostly settled and they are going with Speaker Gingrich. Ron Paul has not received any real jump in the polls and he is likely to get third or fourth in the primary depending on how he does against Santorum. Rick Perry trails in last place. He might as well drop out because if he does not win in S.C. he will not win anywhere.

If anything, I seriously doubt Huntsman had much to do with the GOP.

It seems that for some reason, many ron paul supporters you see on the internet are like fanatics. I mean, holy crap. You can't go 5 youtube videos without someone posting RON PAUL 2012!!!!!!!!! Even on videos that have NOTHING to do with politics. They're at a 20, when they should be at, like, a 5. I just like it when Ron Paul called gringrich a chickenhawk....Thats my new insult..

Michael Moore is a f*cking moron if he really thinks that. Ron Paul would get wayyyyyyy more Democratic votes than Huntsman would. Huntsman isn't anti-war, he just doesn't want to kill as many Muslims as the other Republicans do. Huntsman doesn't want to end the war on drugs. Huntsman doesn't want to repeal the Patriot Act. Huntsman doesn't want to repeal the NDAA which was just signed a few weeks ago and gives the President the authority to indefinitely detain American citizens.

Ron Paul is pro-civil liberties and anti-war. Jon Huntsman is not "pro" those things, he's just not as vehemently "anti" those things as the other candidates are. So anyone who would say that only Huntsman would get crossover Democrat votes is either lying, or doesn't know jack sh!t about politics.

No ones pro-war. No one really wants war. But, you have to accept the fact that war is gonna happen.

Out of all the candidates in the primaries I support Huntsman the most. Honestly, if Ron Paul has so much in common with Democrats then why's he running for the Republican nomination? In case you didn't realize, Paul does not have the power to attract voters from either end of the aisle because he's radical and out of the mainstream. Ron Paul supporters seem to be the most naive. The way you think he has so much bearing on what Democrats want is kind of funny. He will do nothing in support of social justice, he will do nothing to help those exploited by a vulture capitalist economy.

Insulting people just makes you look stupid, especially seeing as you're completely wrong.

No, I agree with Oberherr and so do most non-libertarians. Paul supporters tend to be young, rowdy, naive, and caustically rude.

Agreed.

Anyways, Rick Perry's next to drop out after SC.

Then Santorum.

It's gonna come down to Paul, Gingrich and Romney.

I'm hoping for Gingrich, but I'm just not sure he can pull it off. Romney seems like the most likely candidate by far. But ANYONE in the race right now, besides Ron Paul.
