Default Question for Republicans re: Iowa Exit Polls

Iowa Exit Polls

So, what do you think should be done about the libertarian problem? I have very few Republican friends IRL, so I'd like your thoughts. Absorb them in the party? Purge the pesky freedom lovers? Ignore?

Paul is strong with:
1. under age 40 (Romney takes senior citizens)
2. under $100K incomes (Romney takes $100K+)
3. first time caucus goers
4. independents (43%)
5. moderate/liberal (40%)

Also noteworthy is people citing Paul's best quality as being a "true conservative." Do you think this is relevant to Erick Erickson's observation?

"As you wake up this morning, the tea party has failed because it has surrendered itself into the hands of Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich all of whom would use government to suit allegedly conservative ends, which is not conservative in and of itself."
The mixing of populations lowers the cost of being unusual.
