Race Called … Mitt Romney Wins New Hampshire Primary, Ron Paul Second and Huntsman Third … Obama Gets Only 82% Running Unopposed


FOX News has called the New Hampshire primary, Texas Congressman second and Huntsman third. Not surprising, Romney has won the NH primary; however, even though Romney will win by double digits, if he does not capture 40% of the vote it would be difficult to get too excited.

Mitt Romney

It comes as no surprise that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primary. Romney has now won Iowa and New Hampshire. He now looks to the South Carolina primary to see if he can go thee for three. With US Senator Kelly Ayotte, Congressman Charlie Bass and former Senator Judd Gregg behind him, Romney could not lose.

Romney battled not only his rivals but also high expectations as the ballots were counted, particularly since his pursuers had virtually conceded New Hampshire and were already pointing to the South Carolina primary on Jan. 21 as the place to block his rise.

Seeking to undercut Romney’s victory, Gingrich and others sere suggesting that anything below 40 percent or so would indicate weakness by the nomination front-runner.

UPDATE I: With all due respect to the Politico, Rick Santorum did not crash back to Earth, NH has become far too liberal for any Conservative to run there.  However, what I do agree with the Politico is why Santorum wasted any of his time, money and resources in a state where he had no chance. C’mon man … what was Santorum thinking? New Hampshire picked Ron Paul second and Huntsman third. Huntsman? Look for Santorum to do much better in South Carolina. Watch the VIDEO below of the breakdown of who voted for Huntsman … 51% of people who voted for Huntsman said they were satisfied with Barack Obama as President. HUH?  Maybe Huntsman thought he was running in the Democrat primary this evening. This is what happens when a state allows anyone to vote in a primary, not just those registered of the party affiliation.

UPDATE I: Wow, Obama only gets 82% of the vote in NH primary running unopposed. Hardly a ringing endorsement for Barack Obama. Nearly 6000 people came out and voted for a write-in candidate against Obama. Thanks for the link Jim!

UPDATE II: Romney off to South Carolina for the political primary trifecta. Could it all be over if Romney wins SC?

      There is a strong possibility that Mitt Romney actually came in second in Iowa. A twenty vote error in his favor was found in one of the vote totals. This means he was second by 12 votes.
      SM: when one wins by 8 votes, whether you finish 1st or 2nd, it probably means little.

      60% not voting for Romney, poor man he’s going to be slaughtered by the very very well financed Obama campaign.
      SM: Obama will not be running against Romney, he will be running against his past 4 years. BTW, Obama got only 82% of the vote in an unopposed primary. I would be a little worried about that.

      Hunstman actually has piqued my interest since the first REP debate I watched last week. Perhaps I will be taking a closer look at him in addition to Romney.

      Romney should not downplay his years of experience as a Governor in addition to his long successful career in the Private Sector, IMO. Since Gingrich and all of his current REP opponents are going to start hammering away at him and his HEALTHCARE initiative here in Mass he needs to stand strong, be consistent and deliver the same message if he wants to get elected as next President of the US.

      Obama is in trouble, he knows it and has known it for awhile. Short of the Red Seas parting once more and Obama being proclaimed by the divine powers that be as truly being the next great Messiah- there is no hope for him.

      The one, is ONE AND DONE and I am so excited about that I can hardly stand it.

      51% of people who voted for Huntsman said they were satisfied with Barack Obama as President. HUH?

      Didn’t see that. Interesting and that’s a double HUh for me.

      What makes me worry is that tells me that 51% of Mainstream America is still undecided then, but knows they want a change.

      It becomes scary, grey territory when the Masses are really not sure who the hell they would actually vote for this close to election time.

      Things that make you go HHhhhmmmmnnnnnn……

      More Repub Voter Fraud? Answer: Yes
      Chaulk up another felony for James O’Keefe

      MANCHESTER, N.H. — Video footage provided exclusively to The Daily Caller shows election workers in New Hampshire giving out ballots in the names of dead voters at multiple voting precincts during the state’s primary election on Tuesday.

      The bombshell video is the work of conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe and his organization, Project Veritas.

      Voters in the Granite State are not required to present identification to vote. O’Keefe’s investigators were able to obtain ballots under the names of dead voters at polling locations Tuesday by simply asking for them, he said.

      “Live free or die,” an election worker told one of the investigators in the video. “This is New Hampshire. No ID needed.”

      #6 You’re an idiot…it wasn’t Rep voter fraud; NH lets anyone; including libtards such as yourself vote in their primary. Thanks for pointing out this was the work of libtard morons!

      How many ACORN workers have been arrested or fired because of their voter fraud? A LOT!

      How many Rep poll workers arrested? That’s what I thought!

      Go back in your hole vermin!

    8. Public Enemy on January 12th, 2012 11:02 am

      There were 28 charged with voter fraud in the 2008 election including ALL Acorn charges. So far in Iowa and SC there have been reports of vote count problems in 2 counties in iowa and 10,000 fake signitures in SC. This fraud took place in the Repub primary. If James O’Keefe is a libtard then I’m wrong, OK now prove me wrong, on these points! Why call me an idiot, a moron and vermin? Freedom of speech not apply here? Is this a Neocon only sandbox? Why should I go to the trouble to share this info only to be insulted?

      #8—Sorry, but I find the complete irony in your chosen ScreenName very telling.

      Public Enemy Number One is the person you most likely voted in to office 4 years ago.

      When you talk about voter fraud- I have one word for you:


      BTW, you don’t have to share anything with us and I doubt anyone here would miss your presence.

      Wake Up, Dude. Your Freedom of Speech is protected and honored, of course, but we don’t have to agree with a damn thing you contribute here.
