On his Focal Point program on the American Family Association's radio, Bryan Fischer pointed out that Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate who has an enthusiastic following.
"Now Ron Paul is focusing his energies on caucus states because they can gang rush those things," Fischer remarked, opining that Paul could win the State of Maine's primary. "His people are showing up at these caucuses. So I think Ron Paul has got a chance to make some noise in these caucus states."
The day after the Florida primary, Fischer noted that turnout was low and that there was little enthusiasm. "There is no enthusiasm in the GOP base for any of the candidates that are out there. It's a mystery why there's not more out there for Santorum, but I can understand why there's none for Romney. I can understand why there's none for Gingrich. I can understand why Republicans have little enthusiasm for Ron Paul. I can see all that, but the point is, there's no enthusiasm out there. The real enthusiasm right now, frankly, is in Ron Paul's base."
As MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and her guest, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, agreed following the South Carolina primary, Ron Paul should not be ignored, particularly as he picks up more delegates and is the only GOP candidate enjoying the support of young people. Maddow pointed out that these young people will be the architects of the future Republican party.
"The only enthusiasm I can find anywhere is with the Ron Paul crowd," Fischer observed.
