Romney is the only logical choice for a GOP candidate. May as well end the primaries and nominate him now.

I may not agree with all of Romney's positions; however, I do believe this country desperately needs someone of his caliber to restore law and order in this country. Just as it was with Reagan, politics aside, Romney has the dignified demeanor and refinement that is so lacking in this Chicago-style administration and conducts himself in a manner that will once again make Americans proud of their president.

What I think is really interesting. Is that 53% voted for Mormons.

rom early returns: 36% Romney 17% Huntsman = 53%

If Mitt can get that same 53% nationally, later, it'll be a win.

If a candidate is faithful to his wife, children, beliefs and proud of his country, he is a pretty good fella!! Yea, Romney!

I use to say "anyone but Obama" in this presidential race. Now, I have to say anyone but Obama and Gingrich. He's switching gears and starting to talk like a left-wing liberal in an attempt to smear Romney.

Congratulations Mitt.

Only 64 % voted against you in the Iowa Republican Caucus

Much better than the 75% who voted against you in Iowa.

Sorry, I had a glitch with the t-prompter...

Oops!

Congratulations Mitt.

Only 64 % voted against you in New Hampshire.

Much better than the 75% who voted against you in the Iowa Republican Caucus.

Much better...

Good for Mitt, he has my vote. The only thing Jon Huntsman has accomplished is leveraging his family name into a governorship and an ambassadorship...not really a presidential resume!

@There You Go Again

Can you tell me the last person in either party to get over 50% of the vote in their party's primary in any state? That's why they call it a primary. To say that 75% voted against Romney is kind of a joke. By your logic, 63% of Iowans voted against Obama in the 2008 democratic caucus.

He sure is consistent. 2008 Romney beat 2012 Romney in Iowa by 6 votes and at the moment 2012 Romney is on pace to beat 2008 Romney by only about 500 votes in New Hampshire.

There are several anti-mormon, anti-republican trolls that just have to get in their 2 cents on EVERY stinking political story. I wish I could choose to block them since it's always the same peeps. I wonder if they've ever heard of the Salt Lake Tribune, it's more liberal and I think they would enjoy it more. As for me, I say .... Go Mitt 2012!

Logic?

When you receive 25% of the vote, 75% of the voters, voted against you.

As long as there is continued fracturing of the vote between the five not-Romney candidates, then Mitt Romney is the direct benefactor and he will continue to march towards the Republican nomination. More than any of the other candidates, he has the money and the infrastructure in-place in each state to endure a long drawn-out slog.

Right now he is poised to win both the South Carolina and Florida Primaries. None of the other five candidates will make it unless all but one drops out (soon) from the race to make it a two-person race between Romney and whoever. The "five" are stumbling all over themselves with unconvincing and meaningless rhetoric to convince voters they are the best alternative to a Romney nomination; it isn't working.

That is the reality of this fire-drill called the 2012 Republican Primary.

So there you go again does that mean Ron Paul had over 79% vote against him in Iowa and 77% vote against him in New Hampshire, or do you suppose all the other candidates votes would have gone to Ron Paul, which is of course completely reasonable to someone lacking in whole reasoning department. Or Santorum who had 90% of the people vote against him in New Hampshire. Please show a little consistency.

Hold on to those congrats, Folks!
Not even one of the other Republican candidates in calling it quits so Willard can gain his crown.
Now how come they won't gather around ol' Mitt and work for the best of the Republican party?
What do these other candidates know that many of the DN readers cannot comprehend?
Why don't they like me???

@There You Go Again

Right, but the same can be said for EVERY candidate in EVERY race. What's your point? Romney won big time in New Hampshire. Nobody has won both Iowa and New Hampshire in at least 35 years. And now Mitt is ahead in the polls in South Carolina. As for your earlier point: Do you really think that if Romney wins the nomination that all the 75% that voted for someone else in the Iowa caucus will continue to vote AGAINST Romney? That's why I say your point has no basis in logic.
