That Old Time Caucus Strategy

Let's say Ron Paul's "caucus strategy" plays out perfectly, and he wins overwhelming victories in all of the remaining caucuses. Meanwhile, Romney takes all of the delegates from every remaining primary. How will that work out in delegate count?

Romney: 955
Paul: 98

(Yes, we might expect Paul to pick up a handful of delegates in a few proportional primaries, but, really... this was supposed to be a winning strategy?!)

  2. Gene, so is this a prediction? Ron Paul will get no more than (roughly) 98 delegates?

    1. Well, the above would mean he would get 98 MORE delegates, above what he has now (which number is disputed).

      I have offered a $1000 bet that Romney will beat Paul by at least 600 delegates.
