What about Ron Paul?

Ron Paul supporters may not be as numerous as they once were, but they are no less vocal. So all this news about John McCain clinching the GOP nomination and Mike Huckabee dropping out probably has them asking:

What about Ron? Why are you folks in the media ignoring our guy?

He’s currently in single digits in all four states: 5 percent in Ohio, 7 percent in Rhode Island, 5 percent in Texas and 7 percent in Vermont.

So that means Paul, who is from Texas, is doing best in the eastern states. No word from the campaign on any plans to quit.

On the contrary, his Web site has a link that says “Now there are two” with all the other candidates except him and McCain crossed out. They apparently just X-ed Mike Huckabee in the last hour or so.
