While many people are convinced that Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul should throw in the towel, Paul still believes he can clean house come November.
“You don’t quit because you happen to be behind,” Paul said during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
“It doesn’t get the attention we think it deserves,” Paul said about his campaign. “I think the campaign is going very well. A lot of people like to write us off. We’re making in-roads in the structure of the Republican Party.”
Paul was asked if his campaign was more about bringing up issues then actually winning, and he answered with his own question: “Why can’t it be both?”
Paul is fed up with the Feds — Republicans and Democrats alike. He said that Republicans want to balance the budget in 30 years, but it could be done in three. Paul believes that Mitt Romney is a part of a crowd of Republicans and Democrats who are, “much closer than people realize. There’s not that much difference when you come to policy.”
When asked if he could get enough delegates for the Republican nomination, he responded: “Theoretically I can. …You can’t ever tell. …A little over half the votes have been counted.” He was quick to point out that another third of the votes come from California and Texas, the latter being the State he represents.
The Texas Representative still likes his chances and believes that he could get enough of the Democrat and independent vote to win in November.
“When you put my name up against Obama, I can do better than Romney,” he said.
