    Not really. Ron Paul got about 20,000 votes in the general election. McCain lost the popular vote by about 10 million votes.

    In other words, MATH FAIL.

    I mean, is that based on his platform?? Or is it based on the MSM that TOLD YOU that he was a joke??

    You'll probably claim the former, but I would wager the latter.
    Because Conservatives usually vote Republican and he siphoned some of those votes from McCain although he was no factor..........

    So he was out of the race but still drew enough votes to influence the election? Does that make sense to you?

    Compounding a math fail with an English fail and a political spectrum fail. Very impressive!

    ***** Those who still see some credibility or value in Paul at this stage are "Tilting at Windmills" because he's going nowhere. All he can do is make noise at some restricted gathering or in a crowded GOP primary. He appeals to Purists - some of whom have moved Leftwards without realizing it.

    Exactly, he wasn't actively running in the general election, and only got 20,000 votes from write ins, while McCain lost by 10 million, so this statement:

    Is accurate only so much as I'd be accurate if I said "Me throwing a bucket of the water into the ocean helped to keep the sea levels high"

    Evidently that 0.2% of the popular vote translated into McCain losing 192 electoral votes. Those damned libertarians are a sly bunch!

    Well I would have been curious to see had he stayed in the race how many votes he would have received...It probably would not have influenced the final count but it would have been a hell of a lot more then 20,000.......
