Romney wins in the snows of New Hampsha - by a lot!

Rick Perry nowhere near back of beyond...

for New Hampshire Republican Primary (U.S. Presidential Primary)
Jan 10, 2012 (95% of precincts reporting)
Mitt Romney95,66939.4%
Ron Paul55,45522.8%
Jon Huntsman40,90316.8%
Newt Gingrich22,9219.4%
Rick Santorum22,7089.3%

The most important factor to New Hampshire Republican Primary voters is finding a candidate who can win.

Regardless of how they voted, 56% of those who responded to an exit poll indicated Mitt Romney is the candidate most likely to be able to beat President Barack Obama in November.

In regard to that question, Libertarian Ron Paul, a U.S. Representative from Texas City and Lake Jackson, ran a distant second with only 15% of those polled.

Voters further indicated they are deeply conservative and are most concerned with the nation's economic future - but only as a secondary consideration to ridding themselves of a Presidential administration they perceive as hostile, far too liberal and unresponsive to the America's most urgent needs for economic recovery and a protective foreign policy.
