  1. I think a candidate like him will run and will get over 10%, because the GOP will nominate a moderate RINO type. Candidates will run who are acutally small govt but they will split the vote and a moderate will be left standing. Unless there is a Republican out there who can get through the primaries a Dobb type figure will and should run. We wanted something like this in 2008, McCain saved himself by picking Palin, but she is just not the right person to win the Presidency.

  2. Two quick points:

    1. Those three hypothetical races, with three quite different Republicans, show that at the moment, it’s a tightly partisan race, rather than one where the candidate would make a difference. That’s very bad (though unsurprising) news for Republicans.

    2. In response to the comment before mine, the last thing the Republicans would do is nominate a ‘RINO’ in a race they can’t win anyway (see point 1)–that’s precisely the sort of race in which you go down in flames with the true believer!

  3. The only way the Republicans win in 2012 is if Ron Paul or a like minded person is nominated for the GOP

  4. I agree with you, Republicans are going to need more candidates like Ron Paul if they want to see themselves in power in 2012
