thats because no sane person ever thought it was possible for him to win, and super tuesday has confirmed it.
A lot of people are easily swayed, and you'd be shocked how many Americans believe pretty much everything one of the major news networks tells them. Therefore, if they're told there are only three (in some cases two) candidates, and Paul isn't among them, they won't give him a second look. Also, if their beloved pundits repeatedly insult a candidate, they'll believe it whether it's true or not.
People are supposed to vote for the person they agree, but they usually end up voting for whoever they think other people will choose.
I maybe just a ignorant foreigner, but you americans dont choose your candidates by "Who spent most time on Picture Box" now do you?
Huckabee had his 15mins of fame, he even made headlines here in Finland and had nice coverage on the news papers / TV.
but as the results show..http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22997326/
American people dont want him.
I'm not American.
Sadly, a lot of Americans do choose their candidate that way.
The main issue is that pretty much every news station decided as soon as there were 2 democrats left that there should only be 2 republicans left as well. They repeated and repeated that McCain and Romney were the only "real" candidates. It's very tragic how many people are swayed by the whole 'front runner' mentality, voting for someone deemed a front runner because they want their vote to count. In truth, it's actually very harmful to a real democracy. It's exactly why the media needs to fuck off and actually let the people decide, and it's why every primary and caucus should be held on one day; to give every candidate a more equal shot.
Huckabee's performance on Super Tuesday is actually a testiment to certain people not wanting McCain or Romney in spite of media efforts.
