Romney Again

Jim Burroway

January 10th, 2012

The results are in for last night’s New Hampshire GOP Primary. There weren’t too many surprises with the final results: Romney, as expected, came in with a strong first place showing. Given that he was governor of neighboring Massachusetts, he was practically a native son in political terms, making his strong showing unsurprising. Also, as expected, Ron Paul came in second. Huntsman was expected to do well in the state, having put all of his eggs in the Granite State basket. He came in third, and it’s not clear where his campaign goes from here.

Gingrich came up short, pulling on only 10% of the vote, as further evidence of his rapidly dropping popularity. A Box of Rocks came on surprisingly strong, ahead of Santorum and Perry. Cowboy Perry barely outpaced the write-ins to finish at the rear, with Santorum settling in just a short distance up it.

And that’s a wrap at BTB Elections Central for New Hampshire. Now it’s on to South Carolina where the fun really begins.

Romney won not because of vicinity. He won because despite Democrats’ best efforts to paint him as unpopular, Republicans actually care about getting someone elected this time around.

The scary part is that his prospects of winning a general election are not unfounded; and more than aggravate me because a Republican got elected, I find the idea of a corporate snake buying his way into presidency appalling.

I wish all this hype about electability had extended to Huntsman, but Huntsman might as well be a Blue Dog by the Republican standards.
