JANUARY 11, 2012 Diverse Coalition Backs Romney New Hampshire Exit-Poll Data Show That Voting Blocs Favoring the Front-Runner Were Even Larger Than in Iowa
By JANET HOOK
CONCORD, N.H.Mitt Romney's broad-based victory in New Hampshire was built upon strong support from Republican voters and backing from enough independents to keep his rivals from mounting a serious challenge, exit polling data showed.
Rep. Ron Paul of Texas and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman were buoyed by a surge of independent voters, who made up 45% of the GOP primary electorate, up from just over one-third in 2008. Independents in New Hampshire can vote in either party's primary.
Those voters helped push Mr. Paul to a second-place finish and Mr. Huntsman to a likely third-place showing. But Mr. Romney easily triumphed, because dissenting votes were so widely dispersed among his rivals.
The survey of Republican primary voters, conducted as people exited from polling places across the Granite State, found Mr. Romney's weakest showing was among young voters who stampeded to support Mr. Paul, as they did in Iowa. Mr. Paul collected nearly half of the vote among 18-to-29-year-olds.

I think that pretty much sums-up the New Hampshire Republican primary!
Well what a great future for America.
The youth are more liberal than I can ever remember, and they back a crackpot.
Larger grouping than the Baby Boomers, and this is what they believe in.
Bodes well for the rest of us.
Oh yeah. We can all rest easier knowing that the 18-29 year olds are going to vote Republican in November. </sarc>
“A good sign”?
Young people recognizing an America in retreat against its sworn enemies
It's what the government run indoctrination centers (aka schools) have done to the country.
They have succeeded in EXACTLY what they set out to do.
DUMB DOWN EVERY CHILD THAT ATTENDS PUBLIC SCHOOL
You might be surprised. Civilized children invite and honor proper authority. That should be a hallmark of Republican practice, beginning with the understanding that authority originates with God and is passed down to parents, who in turn exercise the privilege of vesting authority in elected officials whose view of righteousness takes into account the best way to approach ones neighbor. Hint: You don't invite yourself onto his lawn to start digging for treasure under the pretense it is in his own best interests.
NH = Lowest number of churches per capita!
Hence true conservatives are doooooooomed there.
With about 90% in..
Young Jew hating,9/11 truthers who hate the military,
Love Iran and Hamas and support Code Pink and act like Nazi
Storm troopers attacking his political rivals wife and children !
Yes Paul nutters are some else its called radical leftists and GOP haters !
You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a church in NH. I guess they just don’t use them.
Young people are fanatical Paulites because they want drugs legalized, cheap, and plentiful.
It’s as simple, and sad, as that.
Hey, I’m 32 and I can’t figure out what the Hell is going on with the youngin’s! Something happened in the late 90s/early 00s that that turned these kids into freeloading hippies!
Just look at the music, for instance. Rappers rhyming about bitches and bling and slinging dope; tween pop stars talking about their “first time”; and 20-something R&B artists talking about homosexual flings and getting drunk until they pass out. Seriously, isn’t it time that the ADULTS stand up and say, “Okay, I’ve heard/seen enough. TV off, off of Facebook, no video games, get your asses outside on your bike and find something wholesome and recreational to occupy your time!”(?)
I’m aghast at how the Gen Y/Millenials are just freeloading liberal morons with nothing better to do than Tweet from their iPhones while not paying attention to things like basic math.
The Liberals have DESTROYED America since the 1930s with their indoctrination through the schools and the media. I wish parents would stand up and do what’s right, but with divorce rates at record highs, what single parent has the time or the want to do so.
And then it all boils down to God, doesn’t it? Christian morality is dead in this country.
And Mitt/Paul can kiss my ass! They won’t get a vote from me if you paid me in beer and Snickers bars!
That said, I am ignorant, too. I do not know precisely what threat level we might face if we, say, take our troops out of 200 places out of the 700 they are now. But apparently you do. Please educate me on this. You might be surprised how teachable I am. But I do expect facts from reliable sources. Thanks.
For starters, Paul has no problem with Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon.
The article was largely positive - the WSJ is pointing out that Mittens can’t close the deal. RP won’t get the nomination, but the WSJ takes RP’s showing as evidence that Romney just hasn’t got what it takes to be the nominee.
Do these types infest Ron Paul campaign events? No. Does Ron Paul praise their misguided behavior? No. But as eloquently as you describe their degenerative attributes I wonder if you do not gain some pleasure from their antics. At least you can make us all feel righteous about ourselves.
Yes, there are serious degenerative elements out there, but in case you did not notice, Ron Paul believes a normal family with a Mom and Dad disciplining their children is not a bad thing. On the contrary, he believes it is the duty of government to reflect proper authority as originating from God and dispensed through the traditional family. Does that scare you?
New Hampshire open primary is just a waste of time anymore. It’s certainly not a harbinger of things to come.
I agree. They should be informed and encouraged. The big news is that many of them reject the Democrat machine.
