I wasn’t surprised with Romney’s win in New Hampshire. I was surprised by the support for Ron Paul. He had a great night securing second place.
?I called Gov. Romney a short while ago. ? He certainly had a clear-cut victory, but we?re nibbling at his heels,? Paul told hundreds of cheering supporters in a crowded banquet hall. ?He had a victory, but we have had a victory for the cause of liberty tonight.?
National campaign chairman Jesse Benton called on Paul?s conservative opponents to drop out of the race and get behind Paul as the conservative Romney-alternative.
?It?s been our goal to consolidate this into a two-man race, and we?re there now,? he said.
So let’s just follow the media line that 75% of the vote is anti Romney; would they be anti Romney enough to vote for Ron Paul?
What would you say if a two man race was Mitt Romney vs Ron Paul? Are Romney’s past positions on social issues and health care more palatable than a Ron Paul foreign policy?
