Mitt's Big Win
Mitt makes it two in a row, winning 39% of the vote in the New Hampshire primary.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney cruised to a largely expected victory in the “first in the nation” New Hampshire primary and with a margin that should be considered decisive to most objective observers. He also won every county in the state, with every opponent trailing him by double-digits. So let’s close the chapter on handicapping what the margins means and focus on what happens next.
Jon Huntsman, who came in third with 17% of the vote, says he's not leaving the race.
The former Utah governor is virtually unknown in South Carolina, which hosts the next presidential contest in just 10 days. Having essentially lived in New Hampshire since October, he has visited South Carolina just twice over the last two months. And with front-runner Mitt Romney already claiming wins in New Hampshire and Iowa, Huntsman has little time or money to improve his standing.
