Interesting. So Newt’s collapse is a result of the establishment RINOs wanting to back a winner, and throwing to Mitt.

That’s what I thought. I figured Newt was drawing more from the establishment folks than from conservatives.

You’re predictions were pretty good. What happens if Newt loses his 20 percent of conservatives and they throw to Santorum?

Occupy Portland (Maine) protesters headed to NH the day after Iowa. I suspect they registered and participated in the GOP NH primary and probably many from Massachusetts.

29% of voters in 2008’s election cycle were independents. You can’t win national elections without them. That’s why.

Paul now up in Coos only. Romney everywhere else. 8 percent in Coos, Paul is up by 9 here.

Santorum up in Strafford + Merrimack, Gingrich up in Hillsborough and Rockingham. As we saw earlier, the more conservative the area, the better Santorum does vs Gingrich.

Thats right.

A) We want a genuine conservative to take first (aint gonna happen in that state);

B) We want a geniune conservative to take a strong second (probably might not happen, we will see;

C) We want Huntsmann then to at least come in and shave Romney's lead down a lot, by cancelling out RINO votes against RINO votes.

I see your point. Either way, we need a politically weak and wounded Romney going into South Carolina and Florida.

Watch slick n' slippery Romney talk REAL "right wing" from tonight once he leaves NH and heads south for Dixie. It will all be such a show, what is sad is the droves of voters who might buy it.

Romney 36
Paul 25

Fifty-six percent of the vote going to the two candidates who are certain to utterly destroy the GOP as a viable national conservative party.

Amazing.

It's not every day you get to watch the suicide of a great national political party.

Yep, looking like Huntsman’s work here paid off. Perry should drop out.

Odd that, Huntsman’s going to get more delegates than Perry.

Gingrich with 4th here and 4/5th, depending on how the votes play out now needs to win in SC or he’s out.

When I moved up here, I used to hear Mitt Romney on TV, and he sounded great. If you have lived in a really truly one-party Demonrat state, then what he said sounded sweet. All the remaining Pubbie candidates have serious flaws: Newt with his fraternization with Pelosi over AGW, Perry with his Latino-pandering, and Santorum with his union-pandering. Suppose Perry had to run in MA or PA—would he really be different? Until we get back to Constitutional limited govt., politicians are going to have to play the game.

Lots of independents in NH going for Paul, Huntsman, and Romney. Gingrich and Santorum tied for fourth, Time for the R party to start keeping Democrats and Independents from voting in their primaries. How did this happen?

Mitt Romney (R LOL) ......36% ...7,292 Votes
Ron Paul (R LOL) ............24% ...4,912 Votes
Jon Huntsman (R LOL) ....16% ...3,117 Votes

76% of the vote goes to these men in a Republican primary? Wow.

Folks, we really do need to clean up our nomination process.

There is no reason why NH should always go so early. It makes as much sense as having Texas, Utah, and Wyoming go early in a Democrat primary.

I’m in NH on the Massachusetts border. The last time I voted in a presidential primary the parking lot was filled with cars from MA. They were voting in the primary to make sure a bad candidate was chosen for the Republicans. I didn’t see any MA plates this time. I hope that’s a sign that the Democrats don’t care if Obama isn’t reelected.

This isn't a national election...it's a primary. Let registered REPUBLICANS pick their candidate...let 'independents' make their decision between parties on Election Day.

Really...

Please.

So Massholes can come up and deem they will move up and vote? The same dolts that gave us McLame?

Do you think we will ever get a "Reagan" again with the Carnivals that Iowa and NH have become, and the front loading?

The Republican Party in NH has to pull their heads out of their asses and close it down to registered Republicans only, what a farce...

Keep your powder dry.

They ain't gone down to the Old Confederacy yet. It's gonna get REAL hot down there in South Carolina. Even with the media arrayed in support of Romney, he could get kicked real good. One thing is for sure. Conservatives have got to coalesce and quit splitting the anti-Romney vote. Somebody in the conservative camp has to follow Bachmann and drop within the next day or so, and endorse the "anti-Romney". D*mmit.

PS The US media is so unethical, I am listening to ABC news and they are saying who the nominee is going to be or not going to be. That is up to the VOTERS. I have never heard this kind of talk in electoral return tabulations in Japan. They give each candidate equal time, they dont put up a screen with just the top three but put up everybody, and they dont dare say "this one or that one will win their party's nomination". Sam Donaldson is the WORST.

Perry’s ‘Christian-themed’ messages won’t fly in NH...considered the least-’religious’ state in the union. You should see the nasty comments being made about Santorum in the local papers...if Perry was more than a blip on the radar in NH; he would be getting similar treatment.

NH is virtually indistinguishable from MA, etc.

I think you must never have been near the place, or outside the area of NH which is part of greater Boston.

The same goes for MD. The Balto. metro area and the DC suburbs swing MD for the Demonrats, but rural western MD and the Eastern Shore are mostly Republican.

The other thing:

Newt splits are 10-9 men/women
Santorum splits are 9-12 men/women

54-45 men/women splits in the party.

Santorum has the highest support among women among all republicans in terms of percentages.

Gingrich support under 34s - 6 percent to Santorum with 9 percent. Santorum is only losing to those over 65, and even there, only to 65+ year old men.

Every other demographic, men, women, etc is breaking to Santorum over Newt.

Education wise, Newt has a slight advantage among those who are graduate students.

Santorum is getting 13 percent among those married, 5 percent among those who are unmarried.

We knew NH wouldn’t go conservative but to see the 3 conservatives candidates at 11, 10 and 1 is pretty discouraging.

Of course, Perry didn’t even campaign there, but Newt and Santorum did.

NH and IA are both swing states. TX, UT, and WY are not. Political parties want to nominate people who can win nationally, which means winning swing states.

So Romney AGAIN had his Massachusetts Legion

Why does Romney get twice the time of other candidates
in debates?

Why do his Mormons and Legion of RomneyBOT get
to VOTE in two elections?
This is criminally unfair.
