Does anyone remember the Kinky Friedman campaign? (I liked him a lot better than RP.) For those who don't, Kinky (a country singer popular in the 70s) ran for govenor of Texas in 2006. He garnered HUGE support among college kids, he had signs everywhere, and basically was a grassroots powerhouse. On internet polls he garnered 70-80%, and the media asked if old polling techniques were too out of touch. He came in fourth, with 12% of the vote. I'll be surprised if RP does that well after the first few primaries. If New Hampshire has the first primary in the nation as usual, RP has good reason to hope for 1st place. The state is famous for its Libertarian leanings. (wiki the Free State Project for more on this.) But don't get too carried away about that...
