BREAKING: Romney Wins New Hampshire

The New York Times, The Washington Post and most major cable news organizations are projecting that Mitt Romney will win the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary — several say by double digits over number 2, Ron Paul.

The New York Times:

Mitt Romney has won the New Hampshire Republican primary, projections show, achieving a sweep of the first two critical contests in the 2012 presidential race and boosting his chances at becoming his party’s nominee this fall.

The New York Times and other news organizations declared Mr. Romney the winner in the race just moments after the polls closed at 8 p.m. Eastern time, based on exit polls and early returns. The margin of his victory and the order of those behind him remain uncertain until more votes are counted.

Mr. Romney barely won Iowa’s caucuses a week ago, besting Rick Santorum by a mere eight votes out of more than one hundred thousand cast.

Mr. Romney’s second White House bid had been premised from the beginning on the idea that he could win in New Hampshire, a state he has all-but adopted as his own in the years since Senator John McCain dashed his hopes here.

  1. What an interesting race this is going to be when BO begins his assault on Romney about his days of closing unprofitable businesses and causing people to loose their jobs. Romney will then counter with BO wasting taxpayer moneys on bankrupt businesses like Solydra or costing the taxpayer when each electric car is sold and the buyer receives a $7,500 break on their federal income tax from the Tax credit, not dedution, allowed.
    For those living on a fixed income and unable to take advantage of these tax credits, just let it be known that few individuals receiving this break are giving you one fraction of a second of thanks for the tax you pay on 1/2 of your social security check so they can get this rebate (credit).

    Ron Paul is the candidate more likely to push for actual changes in government and to actually cut spending, and not just the amount of increase in spending, but his chances are about as good as Denver Bronco’s winning the super bowl.
