It’s close to what I hope, and that is Romney winning by less than 10%. If so, that would be the second race where he failed to live up to expectations.
Only 20 percent of NH is conservative; sounds about right, Pat Buchanan got, I beleive, 26 percent in 1996. I would expect Perry to finish last.
In a weird way, I’m rooting for Paul or Huntsman...just so Romney doesn’t win big.
Reverse Santorum and Perry’s..and it looks correct up in LIBERAL Hampshire.
Btw, just out:
2012 Republican Presidential Nomination Reuters/Ipsos
Romney 30, GINGRICH 20, Santorum 13, Ron Paul 16, Spoiler Perry 7, Hunts 3
I would prefer Huntsman to Romney. If Huntsman were to win, Romney would be done. Then Newt would probably win SC and Florida.
Romney has 7 votes and Paul 5. These are hardly "election results".
whoop de doo....all of 19 votes counted so far....
Precincts are already reporting while polls are open? Doesn’t that seem a bit unusual?
I hope Paul wins it, and I’m not for Paul.
I read on the internet they are actually getting significant numbers of people writing in “obama” in NH.
Sad, the top three vote getter's are a 2 RINO's and a KOOK. Only 11 percent of voters so far voted for anybody resembling a conservative.
Those results above show 104%. I think they are wrong.
I hope Santorum stays at zero, then maybe he will drop out and we can stop Romney in South Carolina without a divided conservative base.
Dunno why an old song is running through my head today
A month of nights, a year of days,
Fifteen debates as my eyes glaze;
I get depressed as the polls come in
And I just cast my vote to the wind.
Mitt shifts his course along the breeze;
He hopes for faulty memories.
The empty mind is his best friend,
And I just cast my vote to the wind...
Something to ponder.
There are over 300 million people in America.
It is possible that in 2012 out of all those people the choice that American may have to be their President could end up being Barack Obama or Ron Paul.
That thought should scare any sane person shitless!
This was expected, don’t be too glum.
Hart's Location Dixville Notch: Romney 5 2 Paul 4 2 Huntsman 2 1 Perry 1 0 Gingrich 1 1 Obama 3
Listening to the local call in shows this morning, I heard a lot of folks calling in saying they voted for Ron Paul as a protest against the poor field of candidates and because they wanted radical change.
Ron Paul has a lot of supporters out this morning, a lot of signs, a lot of advertising.
For what it’s worth, I did not vote for Paul or Romney.
Second, New Hampshire is a blue state in a blue region of the country, with only 4 electoral votes. Notice the above mentioned pollsters never ask how a primary vote effects their vote.
Third, any pundit who has a candidate is finished is a liar. Santorum was able tie with Romney after being outspent nearly 7:1. Even though the media claims they don't matter. Paul's army of volunteers was able to put him in double digits in Iowa and will make him competitive for some time.
The media will cheerlead for whoever they think will buy the most ads. Most of them will also cheerlead for who they think Obama can beat. We have to use the internet, door to door, radio, and kitchen table discussions to bypass the lying media.
