Well, we learned tonight that fighting a two front war is really as difficult as the military strategists tell us. Having said that, Romney appears to be coming in a strong second in New Hampshire, following his strong second in Iowa and his clear victory in Wyoming.

Word from NH is that Romney called John McCain around 8:15 to congratulate him. Now, the race goes on...

After today, Romney should be ahead in the national delegate count, if I am not mistaken.

In addition, Romney should also be ahead in the popular vote, in that more people will have cast ballots for him than any other candidate. That is a pretty darn good position to be in.

Also, Romney seems to be winning the Republican vote in New Hampshire. A lot of independants voted for McCain. Members of our Republican Party, prefer Romney to McCain.

Of course, there will be folks in the media who have tried to create a story by saying Mitt's is somehow out of the race if he doesn't beat McCain in New Hampshire. That is clearly not the case. To say the guy who is winning on those two measures is out, would be like walking down the streets of Baghdad during a period of increased violence in Iraq with a military convoy and claiming it was a safe place anyone could walk around freely in.

At the end of the day, the person with the most delegates is going to win this thing. I would rather have more delegates than win a particular state that has a crush on me.

The interesting thing about Romney coming in second instead of first is that it seems to encourage his strong supporters like me to do even more.

So, my plan is to travel from Georgia to SC next week to help out there and make a bunch of phone calls in my county for Mitt after that.

I'm afraid I would not have been so motivated if Mitt had won easily in either state



Looks to me like Obama supporters got overconfident about his numbers and switched to McCain. I guess it cost them and us, but like you said, on to Michigan. Romney can still win this.



Yes!!! GO MITT GO!!! Who do we need? Mitt! Who do we Want? Romney! Mitt Romney 08! GO! GO! GO! Does any one else like that cheer above. I was bored and got really creative. Maybe its time we supporters of Mitt Start taking to street corners to get recognition of Our favorite candidate. We will remain optimistic even if the lose is a little disappointing.



The MSM is toying with us (as always) with all this "Mitt is going to Drop" stuff. But what's the surprise there? The results from NH are disappointing, yes, but what is with all this hype about Iowa and New Hampshire? Kerry may have been picked in Iowa last year, but why should 2 states make all the difference? Answer: they don't. The point of caucuses/primaries is to give the people a say, which they wouldn't have if there was only a convention. And if I am not mistaken, Iowa and New Hampshire do not account for the majority of the population! 2008 is very different from 2004. This race is going to continue (same with the race on the Democratic side). And I agree with David, Mitt's 2nd place finishes are definitely getting me fired up about Mitt's campaign in a way that wouldn't have happened had he won Iowa.



Mitt has the most delegates and he is by far the best canidate, now all of us need to do all we can to help him win in Michigan because we NEED a win there! We can do this people, mittheads unite!



No, its more like being Saddam Husein's public relations man the day the American's entered Baghdad claiming that there are no American's here while a US amored vehicle drives past....

Go Romney...

He was supposed to win Iowa with all the millions he spent and all the time there. He lost.

He was supposed to win New Hampshire because no Mass politician running has ever run in New Hampshire. He lost.

Now he's going to Michigan where his dad was a successful politician and the state that he used to call home. If he loses there, he is done.

To think otherwise, you'd have to be drinking lots of the koolaide.

Did anyone see the Concession Speech Mitt gave? It was awesome, and it was covered in its entirety on MSNBC. It turned into an EXCELLENT 5 minute infomercial/ad, free and nationwide. It may seem odd, but I think this could really help him throughout the country. McCain's speech by contrast was a big dud. America will wake up to this. Go MITT.

Mitt will be fine.

Watch Mitt’s gracious speech, congratulating McCain.

‘2 silvers, 1 gold’

I'm still so solid in thinking Romney will be the nominee. But I can see where this is going, he will have to earn it state by tedious state. So be it!!! Count me in, conservatives and nerdy numbers wonks unite! The only consistent theme throughout these crazy primaries has been. . ..Mitt ROMNEY!

hahahahahahah listen to you spin! ROMNEY IS DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at January 9, 2008 at 1:18 AM  


Romney is leading in delegate count and popular vote and that is spin? Interesting... but I have to disagree. It's not spin, it's fact.

Delegate Count per CNN:
Romney - 30
Huckabee - 21
McCain - 10
Thompson - 6
Paul - 2
Giuliani - 1
Hunter - 1

No one is denying that there's a long road ahead, but right now the Republican nomination is up for grabs. No one is the front runner. Saying "Romney is done" without giving logical explanations for your opinion is ridiculous and, frankly, lame.

A note about the delegate count I just posted from CNN. Their numbers seem to include some estimates for contests that haven't yet happened. But even when those are taken out, Romney is in the lead:

Romney - 24
Huckabee - 18
McCain - 10

Mitt won twice as many delegates in Wyoming as McCain did in New Hampshire. 12 delegates picked mainly by independents should not have much impact on the Republican primary. Let's hope voters realize that.
