Paul could actually become the kingmaker at the convention, perish the thought.

Scary thought. Should listen to Mark Levin's anti-Paul rant this evening, pulled out all the stops calling him racist, anti-Semitic, a failed Congressman, etc. and a pretend conservative.

Cain said he will endorse someone before the SC primary..as far as Palin goes, I doubt she endorses anyone. She is just sitting back and watching this trainwreck. Remember how some people in the GOP were saying that if Palin got the nomination Obama would win in a landslide, well, apparently they have NO problem rooting for McCain-lite in Romney. That idiot Carl Cameron already took a shot at Palin today after they said that Romney had won by saying something about her bus tour in NH and how Romney won the area she was touring..you know that Fox News has been kissing Romney’s butt since day 1, must have pissed them off when Palin spoke the TRUTH about the media and the Dems wanting Romney to be the nominee, for God’s sake Dems voted for Romney tonight

Ron Paul reminds me of the geek projector boy with the pocket protector and tape on his glasses in school...and now he is top dog (in his eyes) and you can damn near hear him saying to himself “Oh goody goody goody, Im important!”
(rapidly passing barf bags to the FReepers that read this ;-) LOL

In all honesty, the voting is so hosed up with allowing non residents and “democrats” to vote and no ID requirement...Im surprised we have not voted in Boris Badanoff! (wait, we did....in 2008)

CBS TV News Break

65% of today’s voters in NH still wish there was someone else, other than those currently on the ballot, that they could vote for.

[By 2-1, voters do not link the field of candidates. Someone needs to take that to heart. Is there still time for a dark horse who can save the party? Save the Nation?]

If only Newt and Santorum had never wasted any time in NH a state they had no chance of winning and just focused on SC. They could have told all their supporters to vote Paul./ Paul would have beaten Romney and humiliated him in his own backyard, and conservatives would be in good shape for SC.

Paul would get booed at the convention.

Paul is not a Republican. He is a saboteur for the Liberals.

Paul NEVER bashes Zero or Romney. He is defending Romney.

If/when Romney wins the Nomination, Paul will start to bash him.

Paul is playing for the other side. It will come out one day just how truly Liberal Ron Paul is and how he hid it throughout his political career in order to help the Libs undercover.

Well, the night ain’t over. Would like to see Santorum push for 4th here. They are running up all the Gingrich areas through.

Paul is really strong in Coos and Cheshire, just a percent behind Mitt.

Rockingham is the only area that Romney is doing well. Everywhere else, he’s struggling against Paul.

And he mentioned many Tea Party Congressmen sold their souls from day one ( my words not his).

We have been screwed, and after seeing my guy McCotter voting for NDAA, he is now offically in the weasel column.

I am ready to walk away and just take care of my own.

I talked to a Tea Party friend and he is equally disgusted. He noted this will take years to turn around. I told him We don't have years, (but he knew that already).

I’m not convinced it’s a long term loss for Conservatives.

It IS a long term loss for a party that thinks it can win without them.

McCain’s loss to the likes of Obama seems to have taught the party nothing.

They still allow crossover voting. They still support us providing a loyalty oath, but not the actual politician.

Is there nothing a politician can do to be booted from the Republican party ranks? Evidently not.

Aw, come on folks. This is New Hampshire — a land of libs.

Of course they’re going to vote in Romney — he’s a LIB.

Just stay calm, and let’s go on to SC. And in the meantime, let’s find our ONE.

A young latino voter yesterday told Newt he was going to vote for him based on hearing him speak. Newt connects with young voters and they like Newt’s candor.

Newt calls it like it is and is able to explain very complex issues in everyday terms. People from all walks of life respect him because once they really listen to him, they know he is speaking the truth and from a perspective similar to our Founders intent.

Newt is a historian and makes things very understandable to those that aren’t normally engaged in politics.

Good, because NH shows that Mitt is vulnerable to a SC blowout. He can’t break 40 anywhere except Manchester and the most liberal part of NH.

Only bright side is Romney is below McCain’s 2008 numbers for now.

Between now and the 21st, any real conservatives need to get off the fence and endorse: That’s Palin, Cain, DeMint, etc.

Yeah. An open primary in a northeast liberal state. As always, by the time most of us vote the nomination may already be over. I blame the Republican establishment as much as I blame the media for all this.

Good, because NH shows that Mitt is vulnerable to a SC blowout.

Given that Romney is up 10% in the RCP poll average in SC, that seems rather unlikely.

If either Santorum or Gingrich drop out before the primary, the one remaining could possibly squeak out a win.

do you have any idea on what the final turnout #s will be based on the results so far.

Reason I ask is in 08 and 00 turnout for the GOP primary was around 235k and this year looks like it’ll be below that.

McCain won in 2000 with 115k and in 08 with 88k. Does it look like Romney will top either of those #s?
