I will be very surprised if Huntsman even comes close to raising the money that Romney will raise in Utah. If a vote were held between the two, I think Romney would win hands down. Huntsman isn't as popular in Utah as some would like us to think.

Huntsman will be out of the race within 6 months he is a Rhino posing in the Republican Party. Huntsmans main support is the liberal media that is trying to prop up his campaign. That support can only carry a candidate so far and then all the air will come out of that fleeting bubble. Huntsman will continue to get support from the left who realizes that the president is in real trouble and hopes to have a left leaning republican alternative if the president is not reelected. It is also hooped by the powers that be that Huntsman can funnel some of the financial support Romney has to stifle Romney campaign. In the end Huntsman has zero chance of getting the republican nomination but does pose a thorn in the Romney campaign in the short term.

Since I don't see either one of them as even having a reasonable chance of getting elected, I see this as nothing more than both of them asking for handouts to support their lifestyle over the next several months. Perhaps they should both get a real job and stop asking the public to support them.

How about "STOPPING" this campaign madness. Here we are 1 1/2 yrs away from an election and have been into this fiasco for several months now and the spending, begging and campaign lies are flourishing everywhere. Why? Largely for the media and all of the money coffers that flow to them from campaigning. We have major, major problems with our present economy, the governing of our country from the current administration and the lying politicans elected from every state and all we can do now is talk about 2 yrs from now. How about attacking todays problems and do the campaigning next year? Spend the billions of campaign money on fixing this present economy theives, wouldn't that be the proper thing to do? Why the waste of money, time and dollars for listening to politicans lies that will never come to fruition? Stop this campaigning "NOW"! Lets fight todays issues if you don't mind you greedy pretenders.

They have to come to Utah becuase they know Mormons are the only ones that will help fund there campaigns.

No support other than Mormons.

I believe the Republicans need to hold out for Perry. My first choice is still
Ron Paul though....I think someone this wise and unafraid to speak the truth, while being a honorable man comes along once every 100 years. I think this guy is incredible. Both Romney and Huntsman will not get my vote, as I think their views shift like grains of sand.

@Capt.Smash. Whatever. I'm LDS and dont want to support either one. Romney has gotten a lot of support nationally. I dont think he can really win. Ron Paul is the only one running that will get my vote. Republicans and Democrats have both bankrupt this country. We need to stop the spending and all the worthless programs. We need to be responsible and be Americans. I'm for all for freedom and a patriot.

Michele Bachmann is a viable candidate and will be a strong voice in this election. All candidates are still being measured, and the details are to be seen in the fray. We may have opinions but let's not look like the liberal media in the process...the soul of America begins with the grassroots.
