They can't cause mischief if they are a vast minority at the RNC. So why does the RNC care? Maybe Ron Paul isn't as fringe as you say. I spoke with a lot of Romney and Santorum supporters at my precinct and district caucuses, and their main concern with Ron Paul was his electability, not his views. Many said they would support him over the other 2 if they thought he could beat Obama. Ron Paul can beat Obama, but they mainstream Republicans don't know that because Fox News has told them the opposite.
This doesn't seem very fringe to me.
