Results as of 3:42pm.
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.
Perry did not campaign in NH.
He didn’t expect votes and he didn’t get any.
Will people KINDLY stop telling us that Perry should drop out?
If Perry had dropped out in NH (which he basically did) who would have gotten his 1%? And who would have been helped by it?
I also can’t stand the “Sean Hannity’s” of the world who’d rather stay neutral so they can get interviews than do what’s right for the country.
I’m so tired of hearing McCain, Romney, and Rove on his show.
Meanwhile, the three candidates most opposed by true conservatives (Romney, Paul, Huntsman) are going to combine for 80% or more of the total NH vote.
No matter how we spin it, this is a true disaster for the conservative wing of the Republican party. Unless things dramatically turn around in the coming primaries, we are going to be faced with either holding our noses to vote for Romney in the general election or we are going to have to coalesce behind a third party candidate (such as a Sarah Palin).
I am going to spend the rest of the night drinking heavily!
It’s a bad joke.
Screw the RNC and the horse they rode in on.
Maybe this country deserves Oboingo for 4 more years, It is needs to repent in many ways, and I think Sarah saw it and washed her hands from it.
Romney CHEATED in Iowa to “win”
by counting 2 votes as 20.
Bishop Romney appears to have CHEATED in NH
by again having his flock
cross the border to vote in another state.
If he wins again in the south of NH near highways
to Massachusetts, Team Romney should be indicted.
We must NOT vote for a party of cheaters.
Hope he doesn’t...we need an experienced conservative executive in the White House and he’s the last one standing...not a job for amateurs...
These candidates are not running for President of FreeRepublic.com. They have to be able to appeal to a plurality of all the people, and from multiple states. Blame our terrible choices. There is no Reagan running for the nomination this year. He’d win a NH primary in 2012. It’s not the state. We elected 2 GOP congressmen and a GOP US Senator in 2010.
I will tell you what. No more fooling around, people like Sarah Palin and Herman Cain have GOT to endorse a Conservative Republican tomorrow, and not a day earlier! I will hold them indirectly accountable for them hemming and hawing on these endorsements, while the Party is hijacked by the Establishment, the Stupid Party entrenched apparatus, and lib US MEDIA and indirectly, the DNC who wants to run against either Romney or Huntsmann.
There you go. They want the weakest candidate possible to go up against Obama...
16 percent in
1 Perry (224)
Perry’s at .67 percent, and may drop below a percent.
Gap between Santorum Gingrich, about 300 votes. Big news here is Huntsman with 18.
Pretty much a total repudiation of the conservatives here, if Huntsman can get more votes then Newt + Santorum combined.
She has been though a lot and she probably is a great mom, but she is nails on a chalk board to me... Agggh! I can't stand to listen to her. I grew up north of her and know her sense of humor, and to me it is sooo old....
That is correct. All you have to do is announce your intent to move here and you can vote.
**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.**
Makes me think that New Hampshire is a welfare state.
Well, cheer up (a little).
This NH vote turned out worse than we expected but basically it’s what we expected except that we didn’t think the conservatives would do this bad.
Apologies to NH folks here (if there are any) but those results are weird anyway you look at it, particularly the votes for Ron Paul and Huntsman.
It looks like NH doesn’t like religious folks.
Go NEWT !
Doing well in an Open Primary North Eastern BLUE State.
We need those votes in SC to stop Romney.
IA + NH + SC + FL = Romney nomination and Romney/Obama ticket.
Huntsman split no Conservative votes. Conservative didn’t vote for him. NH is a Lib state with open Primaries. The Rats are pushing Commies like Huntsman, Mittens and Pual to the top tier because that is who is voting there.
Santorum gamed no system. He has been running in every contest that has come down the line. Santorum will do well in SC because he has a message tailor made for the voters.
---from the DMV Guide/ New Hampshire.
So if you know of someone who just died or is gone or not voting, you can vote in their place, as long as you know their name and address. ALSO, If you live in Massachusetts and own a home in NH, you can register if you have a utility bill with your NH address on it. This is so more than one state, a right cherished by the Democrat Party.
...all cut from the same cloth as Romney...NONE are conservatives. If Sarah had kept quiet, we might have wound up with Lamontagne instead of Ayotte.
Well, it’s looking a lot like Romney v. Obama. Pass the tequila...
well, if there’s a silver lining it’s that ratings should be down since the race was over by 8 oclock
He is holding his own.
Currently Romney has virtually an identical vote % as the last four polls done by four different organizations.
I'm curious how Massachusetts residents could pretend to live in New Hampshire to be called by Rassmussen, etc.
Romney, Mitt GOP 12,803 35%
Paul, Ron GOP 8,879 25%
Huntsman, Jon GOP 6,263 17%
Gingrich, Newt GOP 3,803 11%
Santorum, Rick GOP 3,499 10%
Perry, Rick GOP 242 1%
I am really seriously depressed. Between the Democrats, News media, and GOP Establishment, we’re just screwed, totally outnumbered. They’ve been systematically destroying our candidates until their guy and his cohort Paul are all that’s left.
I would have loved either Newt, Santorum, or Perry but it’s obvious that I won’t have any say in any of it. I live in PA, no chance of input.
Santorum just 100 behind Newt now, as the more rural (and more conservative) counties report. Belknap not reporting yet. Paul up in Cheshire with 4 percent in, that will likely shift back to Romney.
It is up to South Carolina and Florida...
It’s Dem voter sabotage in an attempt Newt from claiming 3rd place in NH which would speck volumes.
Dem operative non-Republican operatives attempting to change the narrative.
Go NEWT !!!
Screw the Carnival that Iowa and NH have become!
You can't go to Iowa and tell the truth that Ethanol Sucks unless it is Ethanol Boosting Systems prototype technology and NH is an open primary farce.
Sarah Palin are you lurking here tonight?
Or some of your team are, it is time for you to Jump in in South Carolina...
Are you certain? There IS a Democrat primary (Obama running unopposed). Only Republican and "Unaffiliated" registered voters are allowed in the GOP primary, though you can do a "same-day" re-registration (which pretty much defeats the purpose of registering by party)
Well, sorry, you can’t have the Perry votes.
It’s up to your favorites to campaign and earn their own votes.
It’s becoming kinda obvious that neither Newt nor Santorum are sending a tingle up anyone’s leg.
Maybe they should both drop out and support a man who would actually be attractive to voters if they got to know him and has no downside.
Cheshire is powering Santorum right now. 15 percent Santorum in Cheshire. Just 78 behind Newt with 19 in.
Doesn’t matter what she said. The deadline for registered Democrats to change their registration to vote in the GOP primary was in October.
Romney has a $10 million home in NH they are ALREADY referring to as the ‘summer White House’. He fits right in here...RINO country.
