But how many people between 35 and 55 voted for Ron Paul in the primaries? HE was the only candidate that did not represent business as usual in DC.

Given the choice between Obama and Obama-lite, they chose the one who was not making noises about starting yet another war in the Middle East. In other words, they voted for the lesser of the two evils
