Ron Paul Fundraising Success Paves Way for Third-Party Run

Ron Paul has no chance of winning the nomination of his party (sorry Paul brigade), but he will be a spoiler in the general election as an independent candidate. Do you really think that his supporters would allow him to go away after February 5th?. It is unclear at this point who Paul would hurt more running as an independent candidate, the Democrats or Republicans:
Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul's supporters raised over $6 million Sunday to boost the 10-term Texas congressman's campaign for the White House.

At midnight EST, donations were over $6 million, according to the campaign Web site. Those donations are processed credit card receipts, said Paul campaign spokesman Jesse Benton.

Benton said the median donation is about $50 in the fundraiser, which was the idea of Paul supporters who are not officially connected to the campaign.
