New Hampshire primary results look pretty much as expected with Mitt Romney winning, Ron Paul in second place and Jon Huntsman coming in third. However, if Romney gets less than 35 percent of the vote, his campaign may be in danger.
As for Ron Paul, he is a true libertarian and not really a Republican, so he may not hold that lead through the rest of the primary and causcus states. The most interesting outcome, in my opinion is the recent surge of conservative Republican, Jon Huntsmen. Huntsman has recently risen in the polls, and Rick Santorum took a big hit. While Santorum did well in Iowa, Huntsmen had a good showing in New Hampshire.
Now, onto South Carolina where the candidates will really vie for the candidacy that will attempt to defeat President Obama. In reality, the Republicans stand a good chance of defeating the President because many will vote Republican just as a protest vote against Obama who has swayed to a moderate position and the economy is foremost on voters' minds.
So to recap, the New Hampshire Primary shows Mitt Romney has the lead, but the percentages are not out yet.
