Stay classy, Paul supporters:
A caucus in the gymnasium at Francis Howell North High School in St. Peters was shut down after about a half hour of boisterous disputes, some of it over a caucus rule barring videotaping and other recording.
Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul repeatedly yelled objections to decisions made by caucus organizers.
As is usual with the AP, they get a few things right and a few things wrong, but let’s take a quick look anyway.
Rick Santorum’s strategy for becoming the Republican presidential nominee comes down to this: prevent Mitt Romney from winning enough delegates to arrive at the GOP convention this summer with a mandate and persuade delegates to ignore election results in their states.
Another blow to the Romney “electability” argument, from Rasmussen Reports:
Santorum leads the president 48% to 44% in the so-called Core Four states. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate in this matchup, and two percent (2%) are undecided. This marks a shift from last week, when the president was slightly ahead of Santorum. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
