Super Tuesday Thoughts

Well, it looks like the Ron Paul Revolution is strongest in the northern states! His best state was Montana, with 1/4 of the vote and a 2nd place finish. He also did well in North Dakota (21%, close 3rd) and Minnesota (15% with half the precincts reporting), as well as Maine (18%, 3rd place). He also should do well in Alaska once those votes start rolling in.

The primaries were a different story, obviously, with most results in the 4% or so range. Interestingly, he got the best percentage in New York, and even appears to have gotten 11% in the Bronx!

However, with some states going to McCain, Huckabee, and Romney, this still could result in a brokered convention, and the Paul campaign has been quietly and shrewdly collecting more delegates than is being reported. Even with a blackout of coverage in the mainstream press, there is still a chance!
