    If I were voting for the best Republican, I'd vote for Huntsman.

    If I were voting tactically as an Obama supporter, I'd vote for Mitt. Mostly because I've gone from fearing Mitt as the most formidable challenger to believing he'd be a surprisingly weak nominee (Kerry v. 2.0).

    Even though Huntsman has no chance to get the nomination he is by far and away the most qualified, sensible, and sane candidate. I think he comes in 3rd tonight and gets between 15%-20% of the vote.

    Never thought I would ever do this, Ron Paul, he seems to me the only one who isn't a grinning Phony and will do exactly what he says he will do.

    Obama has disgusted me and made me lose faith in what little respect I once had for these politician people, the lies, the promises, the yes we can, change we can believe in bullsh!t, the bailouts for the billionaire CEO's, the wars still rage, gitmo is still open, the horrible health care sh!t, the home forclosures, a dastardly situation indeed.

    I think Ron Paul would put together an administration that would startle the world and knock the Crazy Left Wing Socialist agenda and their Media right on their asses, Ron Paul would put everybody over at NBC in an Insane Asylum and that is what America needs.

    GOD WILLING
    GOD BLESS AMERICA

    Agreed, the other guy who could pull a bay area lib like myself away from Obummer, is Ron Paul.

    who are we kidding though...the republicans will never nominate a sane candidate.

    Its gunna be Romney.

    All the rhetoric sounds all well and good, but Civics 101 states that you cannot accomplish all that much in DC if everyone is against you.

    It is that power thing.

    If Paul did not have so much excess baggage and so much negative stuff, might consider him.. but he does so double flush.

    Have to take a look at Huntsman and Gary Johnson...

    My sister lives in Nashua and gave me a call on Saturday to get my input on the candidates. I think I convinced her to vote for Huntsman.

    I'm interested to see the breakdown of votes for Hillsborough & Rockingham Counties as they make up around 65% of the population and include a lot of former Massachusetts residents.

    I'm a manch-vegas guy,went to HS there. outside of the portcity-manch-nash triange isnt much. It would be shocking if the moderates in NH would vote for Paul, and stray from the local gov romney. I recall Paul Tsongass winning in 92, only to be never heard from again.

    Romney is too local to lose. Granite Staters play it close to the vest. The timberland vest.

    Manch-Vegas baby! Mitt was Governor of Mass from 2002-2006 and, apart from universal healthcare, was pretty forgettable. I remember him raising all kinds of fees at the Registry (license, registration renewals, etc) but not much else about his 4 years running Massachusetts.

    A lot of former Massachusetts residents have moved to Southern NH over the last 6 years and I hope they come to their senses and vote for Huntsman, or even Paul, instead of the empty suit that is Mitt Romney.

    The funny thing about Southern NH is that a lot of their residents work in Massachusetts. Apart from BAE and Fidelity there are not a lot of high paying jobs in NH.

    Look at Nashua. It is 90% retail.

    Prolly Huntsman. His (I mean the PAC that supports him) TV ad is absurd ("The world is literally collapsing!") he seems like a fairly reasonable douchebag. His daughters are mighty fine eye candy, too. Obviously, my presidential expectations have hit an all-time low. Sh!t, I'd vote for Nixon before any of these circus schlubs.

    Too funny. Republicans wouldn't vote for Nixon right now as he created the EPA. The agency that prohibits "job creators" from creating jobs as the regulations are sooooo tough*

    I like me some clean air and water. Not sure what the hardcore Republicans want.

    *50-60 year old power plants pumping mercury into the air? No problem.

    Huntsman 2016, unless Hillary runs.

    Republicans wouldn't vote for REAGAN either.
    He was a tax raiser and expanded the federal government, and added cabinet positions.
    He gave weapons to the Iranians. He also cut and ran from lebanon.
    He came from a Hollywood, CA background.
    Saved Social Security in 83 ($165 BILLION bailout)
    Ran up massive deficits



    Todays republican party is in a strange spot. Candidates must be in lockstep with circular talking points, or you are a RINO. Sign a pledge, or you are a RINO. etc...


    This will get them through a few election cycles, but in the end its really a doomed ship.


    good luck.

    Hillary and Bill would destroy Obama, this is Hillary's chance to "get even" for the back stabbing The Racists democrats gave her 08, Obama's complete falure with economy and his bullsh!t promise's that he didn't even try to fullfill would ruin him.

    If the democrats want to hold on to the white house they will have to make Hillary and Bill run again, LANDSLIDE, so long Jug Ears.

    Its funny how times change. On the other side of the "coin" JFK has some stance which fall into what we today would call Republican - pro life, religious, big on military and was generally a fiscal conservative. Granted he was big on civil rights which I guess you would say is a D stance (although at the time many Ds were against it ie Reps/Senators from our southern states.)

    I have always found it interesting how "our political" parties have views that flip sides during our history.

    Mitt, Bachmann and a bunch of other Republicans have said that all they care about is making Obama a one term President. Tow the GOP party line (Party before Country) or you will be called a RINO.

    Scott Brown is kind of trying to represent the people who elected him in Massachusetts but is getting pulled waaayyy right. When Brown doesn't vote with the GOP he is called a RINO.

    Jon Huntsman accepts the job to be ambassador to China under Obama? RINO.

    And people wonder why nothing is getting done in the House?
