Ryan McMaken explains to Ron Paul supporters why the Paul campaign’s strategic decision to suspend its efforts in primaries it has no money to compete in is not the end of the world.
The delegate battles will go on. But the main focus for the libertarians now should be to assimilate Ron Paul activists into the long term libertarian movement. Politico reports, for example, that “Forty-five percent of Paul supporters said they would vote for Romney in the general election, and 39 percent said they would vote to reelect Obama. When libertarian Gary Johnson is thrown into the mix, 16 percent say they’ll vote for him with Obama dropping to 35 percent and Romney dropping to 31 percent.”
Exactly 0% of Ron Paul supporters should be voting for either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
