I still think this hurts Obama more than Romney this go-round.... but does this mean we have to endure this guy in the debates?

I doubt if he'll get 1/2 that in the actual election, but he might pull more than previous Libertarian candidates because of the turnout of Ron Paul supporters in higher numbers.

Most of his supporters are going to be one of three groups.

-Libertarian Party members (never going to vote for Romney)
-College kids who's main issue is pot (highly unlikely to vote for Romney, but may have been Obama supporters until lots of DOJ raids in Colorado on medical pot)
-Ron Paul supporters (never going to vote for any major party candidate)
