I suspect that what is going on is others are weighting different policy issues differently. For people who are more interested in domestic economic policy, the goldbuggery is simply horrifying and should be immediately disqualifying; ditto those who think race is the most important lens and don't buy the various statements around the newsletters; ditto those who think the biggest upcoming threat is the restriction of abortion rights; etc. People who don't much care about FP aren't going to make the same tradeoffs in logic about the benefits of Paul's profile.

To be fair, there are those whose primary policy priority appears to be "sticking it to Wonderment regardless of coherence or logic", but I like to think that's a small minority.
