Since I didn't see a thread started on it anywhere, here's one now. :)

So if anyone has any information on the results or the primary, post away!


From what I see so far, it looks like Mitt will win NH by a large margin. And while watching Ron Paul speak his philosophy right now is real scary! The people there sound like an angry mob! :shock:

Looks like the only question is who will come in fourth, Santorum or Gingrich?

Wonder if Huntsman drops out after this.

One question I do have is why did people vote for Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain? I don't care if their names are still on the ballot. A person's vote is too important to waste on people that are no longer running. It just doesn't make sense and seems rather crazy.

Hey you guys, what if Ron Paul is the anti-Romney candidate we've been waiting for all along?

:lurk

8)

Seriously though, what if he starts to move up in SC? And then continues to play the smart delegate game in the small caucuses?

On another note, how would you characterize Jon Huntsman's personality? I didn't think anyone could be cornier than Romney :) . But there's something about him I like...I can't put my finger on it.

Protest vote? They wanted to register their unhappiness with their choices? Or Maybe they were die-hard supporters and they were proud of their votes.

Maybe so... I guess it would be like people writing in Huckabee's name as a protest vote. Still, it doesn't seem like a very wise use of your vote.

If it comes down to Romney vs. Obama in the general, then I will probably hold my nose and vote for Romney. Why? Because it's like Huckabee said any of the candidates are more conservative and better than Obama. Even though Romney is probably the least conservative of the "more conservative"--if that makes any sense.

This whole thing just makes me want to :barf

There's something about Huntsman that makes me want him to go away and never appear on my TV screen ever again. I don't know what it is.

I'm reading a lot of comments saying he looks like a Muppet.

Yeah, he kind of does. I don't mind that though. More in his tone and the things he says.

I don't get why all Huntsman talked about was China, pulling out of Afg., etc and not his conservative record in Utah. Pretty stupid.

Personally I wouldn't vote for Romney if it was Romney vs. Obama. I would vote for a third party candidate or write someone in. I honestly doubt Romney is serious about his new pro-life views.

When did the Drudge Report become the Romney Report? I haven't gone on that site in quite awhile but checked the site for the primary results. Filled with anti-Newt nonsense and pro-Romney baloney. How is winning (alledgedly) by 8 votes in Iowa and your neighboring state a historic event. Makes me want to :barf

Even if Romney wasn't serious, he'd still sign pro-life bills for fear of right-wing backlash, so it's almost irrelevant whether he's sincere or not.

Thought it was a bit rude for Newt to go out there and start his speech while Santorum was still speaking.

The mistake all the would-be not-Romneys are making is going negative on Romney. Everyone already knows his negatives, and nobody will be swayed by them at this point. He's not likely to make and Cain/Perry type gaffes.
The only way to overtake Romney now is for one candidate to sell themselves or shine the brighter light. Garden-variety Republican claptrap is not going to get the job done. Cain had 9-9-9 and made people take notice. Gingrich had his no-nonsense, curmudgeonly, champion of common sense stuff that worked for a while. These remaining guys are not astute enough to capture the media cycle and drag the people into their orbits. There need to be a game-changer.

South Carolina is notorious for rough and tumble politics. It's just part of the political culture so the attack ads were to be expected. I predict that these Bain ads will seriously hurt Romney in SC. That's why everyone is coming to his aid.

Come now, give Romney his due. He's winning the way most Republican nominations are won. He's run before. He's worked to elect other Republicans. He won Iowa without much effort (if you have heard evidence of fraud, I'm interested). He's winning tonight by 14 points. That's not nothing. If you want to :barf , do it in the direction of the other candidates who weren't up to snuff.

I really hope not....

In a sense, Paul looks like he's helping Romney by chunking away a good sized portion of the vote. I just can't believe there are seriously that many people that think Romney or Paul are the answer to this country's leadership. Unbelievable...

Gingrich has 7x the money of Santorum and will beat him in S Carolina. Assuming Romney wins S Carolina, I see only one possible outcome: Perry and Santorum both endorsing Gingrich before Florida (with Santorum probably being offered the VP slot). To do otherwise is simply suicide for conservatives. Then it truly will be game on!

Certainly you've heard about the 20 vote desrepency in Iowa, as posted here at HA? Regardless, SC is where Mittens either gets derailed or causes me to change my party affiliation to Independent. No way in hades I will be a member of a party that has a fraud as it's choose for President.

The real shame in all this is that if Huckabee ran, he would DEFINITELY be winning right now.
