What will be the results of the New Hampshire primary?
Thom plus logo
It’s primary day in New Hampshire – and the votes are already being counted. Two New Hampshire communities – Dixville Notch and Hart’s Location – have a tradition of casting ballots at midnight – and out of 22 votes cast – Mitt Romney has a very, very early lead with 7 votes – Ron Paul has 5 – and Jon Huntsman has 4. Romney is expected to win big in New Hampshire – or at least he was before he inexplicably went on a tirade yesterday about how he loves to fire people. Jon Huntsman – who has staked his whole campaign on New Hampshire – said that after making those comments about firing people, Romney is, “completely unelectable.” We’ll see if that’s the case tonight.
