Romney could do well in New Hampshire and do better than the average republican does in New England. Jon Huntsman would do better if it weren't for his poor performance so far in this field. Ron Paul could take New Hampshire and Maine. Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain would all do terribly up in New England. Christie would do alright if he was running. Palin would do the same as all the Tea Party second wave/neo-cons/texas governors do and that not a pretty result.
