Victory doesn’t always mean gain in delegates
State systems keep count fluid
Question of the Day
“If that doesn’t happen and it gets to the point where there’s actually a brokered convention and there’s actually people voting there, it could be a different story. But I don’t remember in my lifetime that ever happening. So, most of us just kind of assume that somebody is going to back out and it’s going to be over with,” the Maine party chief said.
The Paul camp, however, suggests that the notion is misguided and said its work with caucuses will yield delegate results that are different from the popular vote totals in the multistep states.
“It was obvious to those of us involved, early on, that Paul and his campaign had a significant presence and well-thought strategy, leading into the caucuses. By utilizing the systems set in place by each state’s respective GOP, Ron Paul supporters were educated and ready to cast their straw-poll votes, but most importantly elect delegates who will go on to further represent Paul at the next level,” said Andrew T. Plowman, a Minnesota precinct boss who pointed out that Mr. Santorum won his precinct’s straw poll but Mr. Paul had strong support from 75 percent of the delegates selected.
“If this is any reflection of what had taken place across a vast majority of the state, [and] I have been made aware there is merit to this argument, then Ron Paul has a vast majority of supporters as delegates, moving further in the process to elect more delegates to send to their respective conventions,” he said.
