8. I believe there are two answers but the biggest reason, in one word, is ISIS.

You can't ignore ISIS and say we shouldn't do anything about them and contend for the Republican nomination.

So Rand went with that and I think it sucked the enthusiasm out of the crowd he inherited from his father that was for no wars without a congressional declaration. http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2014/09/16/ron-paul-says-son-rand-speaks-for-himself-on-attacking-isis

That and Rand just isn't the compelling speaker his father is. Even though Ron Paul's schtick doesnt win me over, I can see how he talks a good game and folks amenable to that philosophy would really like him. Rand is just a poor approximation.
