Mittens supporters don’t seem very enthusiastic, do they?

It's a probabilities game ~ the Mittbots forgot that out of all the voters in a primary only a certain percentage are actually supporters of their guy. Out of that group of real supporters only a certain percentage are interested enough to show up for caucuses or other processes where they select delegates. And out of those folks who go to caucuses, only a certain percentage are interested in being delegates.

I think it's something like a 10,000 to 1 top to bottom ratio ~ which means the 5 or 6 Mittbots who actually show up can be easily edged out of contention by a coupe of dozen Paulistas!

I'm sure some pro out there knows the probability distributions, but it ain't pretty.

Not to mention conservatives that would never vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, big-government liberal.

I am one of those.

A relief to see what CAN be done and in the very face of both the presumptuous and the seemingly “impossible”.

That someone, ANYONE, can so organize, so unify, and so master the game in some small corner of the field, does show us what can be accomplished against the odds, by standing in the grassroots, and with the grassroots. This news gives me rather great satisfaction.

Would that TEXAS were so willing to see the upcoming convention opened up to a bit of discussion.
