It is possible that Paul will come in first in a fractured field in the Iowa caucuses: Those caucuses reward intensity of support, which he certainly has. The notion that he will be the Republican nominee is too absurd to spend a moment contemplating.
You can read this hopeless article if you weant. Better reading are the 300-plus comments that tell a different tale.
And here’s another gem. This author says Iowa is worried sick that if Paul wins then their whole political system will be ruined. What is wrong with these people?
Paul poses an existential threat to the state’s cherished kick-off status, say these Republicans, because he has little chance to win the GOP nomination and would offer the best evidence yet that the caucuses reward candidates who are unrepresentative of the broader party.
This is hilarity at its best.
