I think he won a caucus, or a maybe a ghost primary after a caucus... same diff.

It does stand that he has never won a state primary by popular vote. And there are many very good reasons why.

I think Rand will do better some day.

why do you think Paul didn't do better in the primaries?

There's a lot of truth to that.

Why did so many people vote for Obama? Asking why a celebrity is popular or not, is a futile exercise. There's reason they call it the popular vote, you know.

You need to go back and look at the tings he said years ago and slowing move forward... the man knew what was going on... far more than the 2 sorry boobs we had to choose from.

Ron Paul didn't do better in the primaries because he would not have been as good as Romney in the practice of wealth redistribution.

An example - most of the modern, long-lasting, undeclared wars are an efficient means to make large corporations wealthy (support logistics, weapon manufacturers, etc.) by funding that ultimately comes from the taxpayer in the form of taxes. SOP for large government operations. Taking money from one person to give to another is redistributing the wealth.

Most Republicans and Democrats support wealth redistribution, only the target recipient is different. Paul was a threat to this and to other exorbitant government programs.
