Paul Performance

Ron Paul finished second in yesterday's Nevada caucuses with 14% of the vote. That's a great accomplishment on his part, and I'm happy he achieved it.

Still that is the highest level he will ever reach in a GOP primary. I said why that was so months ago: 2/3rds or 3/4trs of the GOP voters still largely back Bush's "war on terror." The best any candidate fundamentally at odds with that position can expect to poll among GOP voters is about 20%.

Meanwhile, in South Carolina, a state some nutjobs said Paul would "win in a landslide," or at least win, he got 4% of the vote.

But at least he still beat Giuliani.

  1. You know what, Gene? I'm sick of your negative comments. I'd smack you if you weren't so fleet-footed.

    On a more serious note, are you sure about those numbers? I thought that a majority of Republicans were against the Iraq War at this point.

  2. Iraq's a different question -- I mean a generally aggressive foreign policy, a hardline with Iran, etc.

  3. When those Republicans say they're against the war in Iraq, what they generally seem to mean is that they're disappointed that it's not being done all Chingis Khan-style, and that there are still some Iraqis left alive.
