Lowly congressman Ron Paul is surging into second place in many national polls showing he's going to -- the Paul campaign.
Is also claiming that it is winning the race for delegates the campaign is confident it will pick up the realities of delegates.
-- states like Iowa Colorado Nevada and Minnesota question.
Is congressman Paul winning joining me now to discuss -- GOP strategist good friend of the show Jack Berkman Jack it's always a pleasure welcome your honor.
Pleasure here let me -- -- the same question I just put to Doug -- -- Ron Paul win the nomination.
Without finishing first.
In any of the nominating process sees -- whether they are closed primaries were only Republicans can vote open primaries -- anybody can vote.
I yes and I think he's -- you know you're already seeing -- surge in national polls are -- what I think is very likely I'll make a bold prediction reg.
I'll make a bold prediction right here and now following what we've been saying for a year Ron Paul is gonna be on the Republican ticket and I'll tell you a while back that up.
Last night establishes you now have four people who have the momentum to take this to the convention santorum's in Gingrich's in.
Romney and Paula definitely and for body -- -- under the convention what that means is in this goes into what I've argued for six months we're gonna see a brokered convention.
The vote will be split up such that.
They will have to make a deal.
The likely leader will be Romney but he won't have enough he won't have enough delegates to win here.
What -- let me start -- Jack are you telling me that it is not just fanciful.
But it may actually happen.
That the name poll is on the national ticket may be not in the first place.
I'm -- yet not maybe not in the first place I'm going further than that I am now affirmatively predicting that Ron Paul will be on the ticket I'll lay odds if this were in London judge I'd lay odds we can -- lay odds on this this I'm saying this will likely happen.
And here's why go ahead if that when the vote is split up let's say Romney gets 900 -- Gingrich 600 Santorum 500 Paul for fifty something like that.
Romney will look at the field and he will have to pick one of them is the VP in order to get the nomination.
Gingrich and Santorum have -- really high negatives in a general election nobody in their right mind.
Would want them on the ticket both -- -- the negatives are so sky high constant torment you gotta go.
Who's left it's Ron Paul it's -- an enrolled it's a bold.
Prediction Jack -- nice surprise to hear from you it's utterly tantalizing.
We we have to go thank you for joining us we'll pick up on this next time -- with us thank you -- -- -- you're welcome a revolution continues right.
