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.
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.
I am seriously considering moving to another party tonight, this is a joke. Rove says record tunrout...yeah, record number of Massholes coming across to vote for Paul, who at 24% out does his 17% polling.
They have same day or previous day registration, no pic ID required.
So Romney AGAIN had his Massachusetts Legion
cross the border to vote FOR HIM in NH.
Why does Romney get twice the time of other candidates
Why do his Mormons and Legion of RomneyBOT get
to VOTE in two elections?
This is criminally unfair.
Perry did as well in Iowa as Newt and Rick did tonight in NH.
Should they drop out as well?
Did anyone think NH would vote differently?
Perry’s done. So’s Newt, unless he pulls these numbers up.
**Dixville Notch: 75**
That was nine voters last night.
what a crock
What in holy hell is a DEMOCRATIC US SENATOR PUBLICLY TELLING DEMOCRATS TO VOTE IN THE INTERNAL REPUBLICAN NOMINATION ELECTION IN HER STATE!!???
ABC News essentially says the 2012 Republican Nomination is over and that Mitt Romney will be the party nominee. Really, essentially, this is their analysis. Laura Ingraham and Karl Rove and Juan McCain are sure smiling tonight.
How in the heck is the inspiration of Obamacare winning the Conservative vote?
I really can’t stand the establishment country club RINOS.
A lot of those ‘independents’ are Democrats...crossing over to have some fun since they had nothing better to do...
Trippi says 51% OF Huntsman voters are satisfied with Obama. He is done after FL. Santorum and Huntsman game the system by camping in one state in order to get on the map, but also split conservative votes in the end.
2008 was the year when the disastrous Bush regime and John “you have nothing to fear from Sen. 0bama” McCain dragged the Rebublicans down to defeat. People learn from their experience. The St. legislature is now controlled by Republicans. The incumbent Demonrat Gov. looked at the state of affairs and decided to retire. We may get a conservative R. gov. next time around.
Santorum’s numbers are not bad.
He’s winning among those who are ‘very conservative’. Leaving Newt in the dust.
He’s gone from 1 percent to 10 percent confirmed in NH. That’s decent. Would be nice to see him take 4th here, but we shall see.
I’m not discouraged by a 10x increase in support.
