Fantasy for Paulbots: Ron Paul wins the CPAC straw poll and they say he can win.

Reality for Paulbots: Ron Paul will consistently carry only 3-4% of the GOP primary vote and drop out early.

To paraphrase Donald Trump:

'No offense to you Paulbots, but Ron Paul doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning!'

Are we really going to be subjected to all these straw polls with Ron Paul again?

Forget GOProud and anything else. This result alone proves the worthless nature of CPAC period.

If Paul would happen to win against all odds he would be 77 1/2 years old the day he took office. It’s time for him to face the music - he’s too damn old.

I am a Ron Paul supporter but I completely agree with your statement. He is better served in Congress (Speaker of the House maybe) or a cabinet position.

Rand on the other hand, could make some noise in the future.

I believe Ron Paul won it in 2007 as well and it did not make any difference whatsoever.

This is an event to ignore.

There is a reason they call them "straw" polls.

It's because they mean as much as pile of straw.

Well, I don't think 77 is too old today...People are living much longer nowadays.

That being said, I would guess this guy is in much better health than many others...Cheney comes to mind.
