Agreed, all most of these mean are that there are about 200 motivated RP supporters in most states. That's not new information.

Still, I'm sure it = press coverage to the luddites who may not have otherwise heard of Dr. Paul through the Internet.

And that can only be a good thing. :)

I don't think the media tends to cover the ones he won, though. Perhaps the local media does, but you can achieve the same effect by getting a letter to the editor published.

Since three others got more votes, one might say Ron Paul got 4th in Indiana. Good showing in any case.
