I've never seen a candidate where people really don't understand the implications of his program as much as Ron Paul. He seems to have succeeded at being all things to all people, when he has extreme (completely out of the mainstream) positions on a great many issues. Is the internet responsible for all the sheople that are following Paul? That's clearly part of it, but does it explain everything? I'm not sure.

In my opinion what's really weird, is that you'd think (at least I would) Kucinich, or at least Edwards, would really catch on (not that they have the internet presence that Paul does, I'm talking about a non-front runner candidate catching fire; why Paul?). I don't know how many folks that are reading this have read Dude Where's My Country by Michael Moore; but the whole point of that book is that Americans poll liberal/progressive on a slew issues, but policies are not implemented that reflect where the American people stand.
