Ron Paul has a good showing in New Hampshire

I was a little surprised by the results of last night's Primary vote in New Hampshire.

I did not expect Ron Paul to run a fairly close to second to Romney and I really didn't expect Huntsman to do as well as he did.

I like Ron Paul, his foreign policy aside.  I think that he's enough of a contrast to Obama that it would make for an interesting race.  Unfortunately, I don't think he could win against Obama.  People would still vote for Obama over Paul because they would want to stick with the 'monster' that they know.

  1. Part of his good showing in N.H. may have to do with the fact that they have an "open" primary. New Hampshire has a ton of "independents", who are allowed to vote in the Republican Primary. I wouldn't necessarily take the results as an indication that New Hampshire's "Republicans" back Paul to that great an extent.

    I love Ron Paul on so many levels that it really cheezes me off that his foreign policy stance is so extreme that I can't vote for him.
