In 2008, Ron Paul got about 5.5% of the Republican primary vote. In Iowa he got 9% of the vote.
Now four years later, he got about 10% of the total vote and 21% in Iowa.

My question is, which 2008 voters that didn't vote for him then did Paul pick up support from? I mean I highly doubt Mitt Romney or John McCain voters would've decided to cast their ballot for him in 2012 and I would have imagined a large number of Huckabee voters went to Santorum instead.

So yeah, which voters did Ron Paul gain in 2012 that he didn't in 2008?

Voters who couldn't/didn't vote in 2008, I'm guessing.

Probably this. Think libertarians who were high school-age in 2008, and graduating college in 2012.
