Is Paul’s Plan Working? Ctd

Alex Altman remains unconvinced. Weigel shows that Paul's quiet strategy to control the delegate process is "actually doable": 

Paul's people believe that they understand the delegate process, and that the media does not. There is truth here: The delegate process is confusing, and I assume that Paul supporters have used their four years of organizing and studying in a fruitful manner. In an e-mail to supporters, they try to get granular about what's occuring.

As an example of our campaign’s delegate strength, take a look at what has occurred in Colorado:  In one precinct in Larimer County, the straw poll vote was 23 for Santorum, 13 for Paul, 5 for Romney, 2 for Gingrich.  There were 13 delegate slots, and Ron Paul got ALL 13. … We are also seeing the same trends in Minnesota, Nevada, and Iowa, and in Missouri as well.
