Ron Paul, Ron Paul
10-17-2007
In an earlier post, I considered several scenarios for strategic behavior by New Hampshire’s large block of independent (undeclared) voters. These voters can select a ballot for either presidential contest on primary day.
 
Among the possibilities discussed, was a scenario in which Democratic-leaning independents, expecting a Clinton victory and disheartened by John McCain’s position on Iraq, choose to vote for Ron Paul. They do so, both as a means of voting for their preferred non-Democratic (antiwar) candidate, and of sending a broader policy signal on the war to the Republican Party.
 
Stir in similarly alienated, Republican-leaning independents, and more traditional libertarian Republicans frustrated by the field’s current preoccupation with social conservatism, and Paul could make a substantial statement on primary day in New Hampshire.
 
Check out this nice visual, detailing the geographical distribution of Paul’s fundraising success.
