Certainly not an important victory, but any sort of publicity does help.
Side note: Ron Paul's Constitution Day money bomb fundraiser is at over a million dollars! Let the R3VOLution continue!

I like Ron Paul too, but I'd be more worried if he DIDN'T win California. He's for legalizing pot. Come on.

I really like Ron Paul. If more people voted their conscience instead of along party lines we would have more positive change in our country.

One thing that worries me is that 7.7% still supports Bachmann...

Paul wins all the straw polls, but once the votes get important, the support disappears. I hate voters in this country.

The main issue now is Paul supporters need to register as a Republican so they can vote in their state's primary. From what I've heard this needs to be done pretty far in advance This will be my first election and as much as it pains me to do it, I'm planning on registering GOP so I can vote for Paul in the Missouri primary. Independents and Democrats need to do this for Paul to even have a chance at the nomination.

It varies from state to state. In Texas, you can register as any party and vote in either primary-- but only one. So you can be a registered Democrat and vote in the Republican primary-- but then you can't vote in the Democratic primary-- and vice versa.

I'm an independent and voted in the Republican primary in 2008. Planning on the same deal in 2012.
