Funny that you don't hear too much about this, no?

Something's funny. What do you think it is?

In case you didn't know,

Ron Paul 2012 Wins Majority Of Washington Delegates To Convention, Other States Expected To Follow
Quote:

Ron Paul's 2012 campaign has won the majority of Washington's delegates to the Republican National Convention, and a number of other states are expected to follow suit, pointing to a hectic convention in which Mitt Romney's path to the nomination may face a major insurgent opponent.

I'm not sure whose delegates he's getting. I'm still trying to figure out exactly how Paul is getting all 152 delegates in Missouri as mention by the video. I didn't think there where that many delegates in that state. According to everything else I've viewed, there's only 52 delegates in the state.

Here's a map of the situation so far

Looks like he's taking most of the delegates from Santorum.

Gingrich's are a high possibility as honestly Gingrich has more similarities with Paul than he has with Romney.

Santorum's however are pretty slim, although he will get the Santorum delegates that hate Mormons or will only vote for a Christian.

In my opinion, I view it as just the opposite. I have a feeling that Gingrich voters will side with Romney and Santorum voters will more or less side with Paul. From the very beginning, Santorum seemed like a spoiler candidate to me and I believe that the primary elections would have went a bit differently had he not been on the ballot.
