    We have 49 other states to hear from, so yes New Hampshire is the first but not the last. I am also rotting for Huntsman only because he’s the most qualified, and if they think I would vote for Romney as President then think again. I sooner Obama then him and a lot of other people think the same.

    Ron Paul is the most qualified, in fact. I’m voting for Michelle Bachman because I actually know her, but all my friends are voting for Ron Paul, and I think he is the best candidate too by far, but I would just feel bad not voting for Bachman since she’s kind of a family friend. I actually told my parents and everyone at the grass bowling club I go to about Ron Paul, they researched him and now they’re all voting for him too, heh.. It seems the only people who don’t like Ron Paul have never actually looked him up, and then when they do they get all excited and will only vote for him… I think Mitt Romney will win in NH but only because he is the governor there… I think Ron Paul is going to win the candidacy.
