March 4, 2012- Texas Congressman Ron Paul has yet to produce an upset but his steady perseverance will soon bear fruit. Paul has described those who support him as an energetic, tireless minority. Political analysts have said since the start of the primaries that Paul’s supporters are the most dedicated.
Nevertheless, Paul and his campaign team and supporters have not been able to pull off an upset victory yet. Every candidate that has remained in the race for the White House has won at least one state. Paul however, has strong second place finishes in Maine, Minnesota and New Hampshire.
Saturday, when votes were being tallied for the Washington caucus Paul once again was in a battle for second, this time with Rick Santorum. One expert feels that Paul has yet to take a primary or caucus win because of how serious he is about cutting the scope and size of the government.
Super Tuesday could be just Paul time. It is when he could surpass Gingrich in total delegate count. He and he alone has the conservative coalitions libertarian side to help make it more likely just a three man race between him, Santorum and Mitt Romney.
Paul has doubled his numbers of 2008 in all state to date. He just wants to keep increasing the number of delegates as the race continues to its finish in Tampa this summer. He hopes he and Santorum can win enough delegates to prevent Romney from winning the nomination outright. Then in Tampa, he will have his chance to sway the party his way. One thing is for sure, no one in the race has been steadier or more true to his convictions as Dr. Paul as been.
