    In my educated estimation . . . (none / 0) (#6)

    . . . perhaps 5% to 9% of Ron Paul supporters were so hardcore that they wouldn't have voted for a ticket that didn't have Paul on it.  The rest would have probably been willing to work for the ticket, if it hadn't been for the way that the RNC, the Romney campaign, and the leadership of several state parties treated REP supporters . . . in public and on the record.

    As I mentioned in the article, it wasn't just the Ron Paul campaign that was treated shabbily.  Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich were also all on the receiving end of the shaft at some point or another during the primary process.  To what degree that caused their supporters to take a protest action (either sitting out at least the POTUS part of the election, or voting "other than republican" at that point on the ballot) we're probably never going to know for sure.

    I agree with Jason.  The "big tent" meme is for those who've forgotten what the Republican Party is supposed to stand for.  The point can easily be argued that had more candidates actually campaigned on the party's platform, we might have had a few more wins in "up for grabs" seats (presidency included).  As Reagan once observed, the Republican Party does its best job of "expanding its tent" when it articulates its principles boldly, plainly, and unambiguously to every strata of society and across all demographic lines.
