Here's what I think ... make Romney supporters believe it's over, they stay home. Ron Paul supporters still get out and vote - Ron Paul increases odds of brokered convention and/or win.

Whats wrong with getting a man in office that thinks for himself. You like a man that are controlled by the banks, Unions? BushObama clones?

I want things to get better for all of us, that is why I will one support Ron Paul.

People will likely continue to see Ron Paul supporters out canvasing - they do it on their own anyway. When our primary gets closer, I'll be out canvasing with the Ron Paul supporters here.

Here's how it works at a brokered convention: for the first vote, delegates have to vote for whichever candidate won their state (or abstain from voting-which they will likely do if they can't vote for RP). For the second vote, they can vote however they want.  

Mitt does NOT get Ron Paul's delegates.  When Santorum releases his delegates, they can vote for whomever they choose.

Of course it would be good for Mitt if RP dropped out.  He would have no competition left.  That's not going to happen.  The only thing he has stopped doing is advertising in primary states because it's pretty much a waste of money.  He has not ended his campaign.

And this may not even be true. According to RNC rules, delegates are "free agents" and cannot be bound by state rules at the national convention.
