"A record 250,000 voters were expected to turn out for the GOP primary on an unseasonably warm winter day, Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan told CNN. "

250K? Can that even be possible?

Romney hack John Sununu just told CNN that his candidate is afraid of the debates and that he wants the media to keep some of the other candidates out (ie Newt)

It;s slash and burn time. I hope Newt rips this guy to shreds. I could care less if Newt gets more than 5% in any primary as long as he continues to rip the veneer off this phony Lib Mittens Romney.

God help the USA

If Newt sacrifices himself to knock out Romney, Gov. Palin could then step into the breach.

We’ll see, won’t we. I think Santorum and Huntsman have both hit their high water mark by camping out in one state, not by the strength of their campaigns.

Tea Party needs to come out in support of Newt.

Jim Robinson should hit the trail too. Go JIM - Tea Party for Newt!

Jim does have influence among Conservatives and Tea Party.

I was a Herman Cain supporter, but at this point in time if he endorsed Newt it would not mean anything to me. Endorsements, IMHO, are just political favors done for bigger promises.

I think if Palin and Cain are smart they will not endorse anyone. Palin may be prohibited or at leery of doing so by virtue of her FOX contract. Herman might just want to keep on doing TV commentary on 999.

Right now I am in the Anyone But Obama crowd. I want to get on with a campaign against the reelection of Obama. Stop the circular firing squad and let's get this campaign on the road!

I'm curious how Massachusetts residents could pretend to live in New Hampshire to be called by Rassmussen, etc.

Actually, most of the "motor voters" are for Paul, who finished polling at 17% but is garnering 25%.

I think Newt takes 5th here.

Santorum’s just pummelling him in Cheshire. 15 to 7. It’s only 7 percent in and the Newt supporting areas are 35 percent in.

Yep, Santorum scored big with the ‘most conservative voters’. He’s winning among everyone who calls himself a conservative.

But most of the voters here are ‘moderates’, and guess who is just killing there. ;)

Newt is 4th - behind Santorum, Romney and Paul. Newt is pulling better among the moderates and liberals.

Why would anyone say this? What is Romney afraid of?

Did a Romney surrogate really just ask a CNN journalist to assist in keeping Newt out of a debate? Isn't that anti what this nation is all about?

That is DISGUSTING. ROMNEY, the scared little punk is disgusting and needs a 72 year old man, John Sununu, to whine to CNN to keep Newt off the stage, because Newt is the only one brave and articulate enough to expose Romney's Liberalism?

We need a youtube video of the mess that is known as John Sununu and Romney. Threatening the media to keep Newt out of debates.

Bingo we have a winner. But the American MSM will do the opposite.

If a CONSERVATIVE unseats Mitt Romney in South Carolina and takes the lead, watch for the MSM to dismiss it (the state of SC, its primary, its voters and what not), or to downplay it, while if Romney wins SC the chorus that he is "unstoppable for the nomination now" will be deafening.

It is just two narratives the American Government-Media Establishment (MSM) choose from and put in as their template of commentary, depending on whether a RINO or a Conservative wins the state. They will use and switch accordingly.

Fourth or fifth is a distinction without a difference when it is by only a hundred votes or so. It’s obviously a tie between the two and both are on the block to do well in SC. I think Newt is probably done after the Bain deal, Romney hit him hard on it in his victory speech saying that Newt was using the “politics of envy.”

I got the bottom part closeness between Gingrich and Santorum right and Perry pretty close. Huntsman was up at 18%

This Ron Paul 25% BS is alarming. The only plus side, Romney is below McCain’s 2008 levels. How the media spins this as a victory is amazing.

Yeah, I’m a bit baffled at everyone’s shock, the results are very close to recent polling.

The only difference between the results so far and the polling is Paul’s extra 5% or so, likely the result of unusually high unaffiliated turnout (which may have been hard to predict or model in polling; of course, every time a poll DOES include anyone other than registered Republicans, FR has a cow over it.)

"IA + NH + SC + FL = Romney nomination and Romney/Obama ticket."

No, no, no. These states have reduced delegates due to early voting penalties, so that combined they make up about 5% of the total (and they are NOT winner take all. A SuperTuesday state like Tennessee has MORE delegates than FLORIDA. Georgia has more than Florida, Iowa and New Hampshire combined. The structure has changed also because there is more proportional voting in many of the states.

I am going to caucus for the RNC Tampa Convention here in Colorado on Feb 7th for a Triple Option Delegate slot, a Gingrich/Santorum/Brokered delegate. I will be willing to bargain between these 3 outcomes depending on relative strength that emerges.

Maybe premature to say so, but at this point based on trends, it appears RICK SANTORUM tonight will top the list of True Conservatives in the GOP vote in New Hampshire (the others agove being either RINOS or Occupy Isolationist Legalize Heroin freaks).

Newt is getting squeezed out, that’s the problem.

The libertarians have Paul. The moderates have Romney. The Conservatives have Santorum.

Newt draws from all the buckets, but the only folks voting for him are those over 65. That’s it.

That’s the only demographic where he really stands out from the crowd. This is why I’ve been pushing for us to get behind Santorum and consolidate the conservative vote against Romney. Santorum consistantly draws from Conservatives moreso than Newt.

For some reason the magical number for me would be 37%, he ain't their... Was that McCains number or someone elses? I can't understand where it comes from but..

More importantly, 65% voted for a Non-Romney...

We are going to bury Mitt for good down here in SC—we can't abide a slick Yankee liar and his lying RINO establishment Yankee backers round these parts.

Santorum is from up North too but he loves Jesus and was never for abortion,homosex or taking away our guns—so he is alright.
