Follow New Hampshire GOP Primary Results Live

In under one hour, the New Hampshire GOP Primary polls close. The New Hampshire primary is the second contest in the state-by-state battle for the Republican presidential nomination to face Democratic President Barack Obama on Nov. 6. Romney narrowly won the first contest, the Iowa caucuses, on Jan. 3. According to Reuters, and pretty much all of the mainstream media, Mitt Romney is in charge, and Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman appeared to be in a battle for second place in New Hampshire, the small New England state known for its independent streak and outsized role in presidential campaigns. As for Mitt, "A multimillionaire who says his experience as head of private-equity firm Bain Capital would help him spur America's economy as president, Romney might face a bigger challenge in the next primary in South Carolina on Jan. 21, where the economy is weaker and conservatives make up a larger slice of the electorate." Because apparently people in New Hampshire are big fans of 25% IRRs predicated by 5x Debt/EBITDA LBOs. Or something. Follow the primary via the CNN live webcast below, through the WSJ live blog, or via Politico. Fox News is tracking New Hampshire exit polls here. Finally, the live tally of final results can be tracked using the interactive Google map below.

Either it's RP for the US or it may be RIP for them.'s picture

The "Live Free or Die" state. Polls show a plurality of New Hampshire Republican voters will select "Die."

Heh.  They do.  They select DIEBOLD

Reporter on Current TV just implied that Obama supporters are coming in and voting to move the vote. "Expect surprise."

Guess that means the Obama team worked to get their support to vote for Huntsman.

Ron Paul is the only candidate who can defeat Obama.

GOP Obama supporters...riiight

Open primary. Can come in undeclared and vote however you want. Think you don't have to be registered, not sure.

A Hope and Change Kool-Aid drinking relative put on FB he voted for the Vermin Wizard who wants to pass out ponies to everyone.

He is really an Obamanaut but wanted to exersice his right to vote.

Anyone noticing how Ron Paul's numbers continue to climb?  He will probably do no worse than second in any primary.  Is Romney a shoe in to win them all?  If not, then second place in every state could be good enough for a win.  24% for Paul now = 30% next week.

It's going to be harder in SC where they care more about unemployment than liberty. I still think that RP needs to paint a picture for people what idea of End the Fed means for the country and for their individual pocket book. Make it clearer in easy examples.

His garbled style of speaking is still a problem to reach voters. It would be better if he acknowledged that he had a challenge with speaking before his speech like the radio statin interview in Iowa and then he becomes endearing and we hear his message easier instead of almost painful to watch.

We want him to win.

I'm late to this party, but it's pretty obvious that there's a direct and inverse correlation between Americans' rising interest in, and disdain of, The Non-Federal Reserveless Non-Bank & The Ponzi run by The Bernank, and Ron Paul's vote tally.

A vote for Ron Paul, just like the purchase of a gold round, is a pox on The Bernank & The Fractional Reserve Banking Racketeering Outfit.

I never thought I'd ever see this many people awakening to the basic, undeniable truths Ron Paul consistently speaks about, with many of them centered around the core disease creating our very adverse economic (and social, to a large degree) symptoms, which are now picking up much velocity in an ominous direction, but awakening they are.


*It's also quite satisfying to see the Lame Ass Main Stream Media 'Reporters' & Pundits squirming uncomfortably, revealing themselves so transparently as the bought & paid for whores that they are, while parading as 'journalists,' now that they no longer have the luxury of pretending Ron Paul doesn't exist.

Congressman Ron Paul perfectly matches the definition of what a bullshitter is all about, as masterfully explained by Harry Frankfurt(*) in his magnum opus “On Bullshit”

For the bullshitter it is in itself neither a reason in favor nor a reason against. Both in lying and in telling the truth people are guided by their beliefs concerning the way things are. These guide them as they endeavor either to describe the world correctly or to describe it deceitfully. For this reason, telling lies does not tend to unfit a person for telling the truth in the same way that bullshitting tends to. Through excessive indulgence in the latter activity, which involves making assertions without paying attention to anything except what it suits one to say, a person’s normal habit of attending to the ways things are may become attenuated or lost. Someone who lies and someone who tells the truth are playing on opposite sides, so to speak, in the same game. Each responds to the facts as he understands them, although the response of the one is guided by the authority of the truth, while the response of the other defies that authority and refuses to meet its demands. The bullshitter ignores these demands altogether. He does not reject the authority of the truth, as the liar does, and oppose himself to it. He pays no attention to it at all. By virtue of this, bullshit is a greater enemy of the truth than lies are.

Was visiting Philly recently and saw a beat-cop delivering a righteous rundown of what the Fed is to two other cops on a golfcart and a SEPTA workman.  That was encouraging.

Good point. He has to start expressing his empowerment philosophy as a function of the individual markets he enters. It is accessible and vital to a multiplicity of scenarios.  The key is articulating the message that will resonate with and ultimately address the local issues.

Mr. Mandelbrot's picture

See my post below.  Hancock County is screwed up.  Ron Paul at less than .5%?!

palmereldritch's picture

Great catch.  Send a link to Infowars, and Dailypaul as a heads up.  That could be a potentially important media voter fraud story going into SC

SilverFish's picture



People in SC will not go for RP in any numbers over 15%


1. They like them some Jesus (not the all loving Jesus.... but the Jesus that wants to kill fags and Muslims and tell everyone else what their morality should be)

2. They like them some WAR

3. They want someone that will promise them some JERBS!!!

4. They  dont want freedom, man.


RP wont do that well here.

First Post, Long time troller,

Believe it or not its true! My family and I supported Obummer with money and votes and plan to do the same for RP. Registered as a repug for the first time in my life to make it happen. Truth is I dislike rupugs(neocons) mostly not moderates. However I know the only chance this country has is to return to our roots that made this country great! I just pray the party gives him a chance as I will not vote for any of the other choices. RP has my vote even if he isnt running I will not vote for the lesser of two evils as the rest including Obummer are too evil for me!

blindman's picture

if you give a politician your money you are either
insane, criminal, or criminally insane. imo
the term campaign finance reform should come to mind,
that and public financing of political campaigns.
no one individual or group can out spend the fed and all
that feeds off it.

disabledvet's picture

what is your opinion on voting for them?

blindman's picture

i have voted for 30 plus years mostly for
the guy who lost. the few times i voted
for the guy or gal who won i soon regretted
the vote. apparently i am a glutton for
punishment and will vote again and no doubt
will be disappointed in the fullness of time.
i just had to use that phrase.
the thing is the politicians are under no obligation
to their own platforms designed to gain access to said
elected official post. they have to face the electorate,
yes, when the term is up but the damage is already done.
there is impeachment but ... so what, unlikely, especially
when they are doing god's work as they see it.
duplicity thy name is politics and when it is not
good people get hurt. what can i say? we're
not in Kansas anymore. i guess local politics is
more real than national but less impressive to the
wider audience and some of the same dynamics are in play.
the federal level is a unique bird with limitless opportunity
for fortune stealing and unbridled corruption, deceit and
mayhem. as a result every vote is cast from the pall of
infinite darkness and ignorance. soon i will stop breathing.
the national federal system in these united states has been
abducted and tortured and its heart is being kept on life support
somewhere in a cave in Missouri. political donations are not going
to fix it, imo. keep your money for food. you can't eat the
compromises or backroom deals that your candidate will make to
keep his career.
so here i agree with those that say the only issue of political
significance is campaign finance reform. i'm done with hope
for change or hope and change in the political arena. the population
entirely demands reform or nothing political in the rhetorical
sphere means anything at all, as it is the criminals write the
laws. imo

pupton's picture

Hey man, how do you think we will ever beat the establishmentnguys if we can't give their challengers our money. How do you think Ron Paul got this far???

blindman's picture

you can give all the money you want. i'm saying
the entire process of raising money by politicians
for campaigns is part of a larger scam that you cannot
win by hoping to get more people to play with their
food money. either we get the private money out of
politics or "the people" will lose every time as they
are distant from the money creation mechanism where
the banks are at the heart of it and will out spend
and support politicians every single time, no exceptions.
this is not where my money will go. perhaps you have
enough for this ? your call obviously.

LongBalls's picture

Dude. If your going to give up on something with such importance then please start with your own breathing. Othewise drop the defeatist attitude and join the fight.

blindman's picture

not defeatist just fight my fight the
way i want to fight, where i want to fight
and how and who i want to fight. i won't
pay someone to fight my fight. they fight with
fiat notes, i don't. i don't like it.
stop breathing soon i will.

"My family and I supported Obummer with money and votes and plan to do the same for RP."

Apparently flavor of the day is popular in your house.

Had you admitted you made a mistake I would have respected your support slightly more but much like Romney...(sorry switching to caps) IT WASNT THAT FUCKING HARD TO KNOW WHAT OBAMA STOOD FOR AND IT'S NOT THAT FUCKING HARD TO SEE WHAT ROMNEY STANDS FOR.

In WI Dems are all pissed at Scott Walker and they really dont like it when you remind them... Unions fucked him for years and he ran on this.  Gotta respect a guy who stands by his word.

Seriously, it just breaks my heart to hear his "Im Pro-Choice" and now "Im Pro-Life".  Really?  Why don't you tell me about that epiphany you lying bastard.  Why dont you tell me again how you were surrounded by Massachusets Liberals and "what did we expect?"

So what happens when you go to DC and are surrounded by lobbiests you bitch whore from slutville.

That shit isn't funny. My mom is old and a lesbian. My libertarian roots go deep. Do what makes you feel good as long as it doesn't impede on my rights to do the same.

Lore's picture


My thinking exactly. I once attended a 911 Truth gathering only to find the discussion dominated by "Who's going to volunteer for the Obama Campaign." There was no point staying, so I left.

Lest we forget: MOST PEOPLE ARE WRONG ABOUT MOST THINGS MOST OF THE TIME (in the context of world affairs). RP has no chance because he is the Contrarian choice in a Mainstream political sphere. We should take heart that he is doing as well as he is. It means people in general are becoming more sensitized to destructive forces behind the scenes, and that is very encouraging!

sicadischit's picture

Ok I think I made that clear supporting Obummer was a huge mistake! And I opologise to the great people of this country. There you happy now? Seriously while I made a mistake. I'll bet you voted for the cowriter of the latest NDAA bill to strip Americans of our constitutional rights. Some choice we both had wasn't it? Not sure why I did not see what Obummer truly represented. I screwed up, but lets run through my choices at the time it hit the west coast. Mcain,Hillary,Obummer At this point I feel they all suck! BTW you are a jerk in case no one has told you recently! : )

Demologos's picture

Wow, first time in the ring and you get sucker-punched.  Cool!

JPM Hater001's picture

Yeah. You were the unfair target of my Romney frustration.... I'm sorry. But going from Obama to Paul is like going from liking rod too...well, liking muff.

Pretty big change. Unless you didn't really think for yourself back then...which is understandable.welcome to the awake and please...never lose sight of freedom again...or I will hunt you down and make you eat... get it.

Ben Dover's picture

I understand how it happened to him because it happened to me. I hated Bush and all he did (be it the wars, the Patriot Act or the Tarp) and I saw Obama as the anti-Bush. In short, my vote was not for Obama but against the status quo - and I thought getting a quick shot of Hopium Euphoria was what we all needed. I didn't look at reality and instead imbibed the media generated tripe

Yeah, in retrospect, I was a dumbass. Maybe that's his story and maybe that's the story for a lot of us.

sicadischit's picture

Pretty shitty Opology : )      ( Just kidding with ya!) excepted and thanks for kind of retracting it. Going from Independent to Constitutionalist is not as big a jump as you might think. Yes we are awake there are many Obummer supporters who clearly understand how they were burned, screwed what ever the F you want to call it. One good thing from it though is it woke up many independents. As we were steered to vote for Obummer. I now see them steering the masses to vote for ANYONE but RP. (Their, They, the controllers) prefer Romney but its been laughable as they keep bringing out new candidates from which they will allow you to choose! You know they have to HEDGE their bets. Keep in mind by the time, we on the west coast get to vote it a primary or election christ its already over! Sucks really we only get to vote for who the East coast chooses for us. BTW Sorry about the jerk comment retracted and shredded I understand why you are frustrated all of us are. My ideal government vision. Tax supported free education,free BASIC healthcare. National government that provides for the defence( not pre-emptive). No lobyists(illegal bribes) IMHO, term limits and finally, follow the constitution no exceptions. Every thing else is decided on a state by state level. If you care to debate the benefits or drawbacks of my views I'm up for that. My beliefs are not built in stone and change with the flow of info coming in. I personally see a person who sticks with their decisions even when they become obviously wrong as a weakness not a strength. Just as my vote and support for the bought and paid for current occupant in the whitehouse was an obvious mistake one I am trying to rectify! Hell think I'll just jump over and give RP another fifty. Not a lot but when I am supporting 3 families(only one who has not been laid off yet) a little at a time is all I can afford. Not to mention stacking PM, food and replacing the guns etc. I sold years ago. Yes I think it will get that bad if we do not do something about it. Hence my return to freedom, liberty and being a constitionalist, do I agree 100% no I don't. I do however think it is what must be done to avert disaster

turnout in counties won by RP at less than 5% relative to population.


turnout in counties won by Romney average between 10 and 25%.



tarsubil's picture

If Paul gets about 25% and second place, I don't know how you can possibly not feel supremely hopeful. Paul was given a mission when Nixon closed the gold window 40 years ago. This kind of traction means the light is finally shining in.

Mr. Mandelbrot's picture

What the hell is up with Hancock county in the Southwest?!  Huntsman at 43.9%, Romney at 40.7%, Gingrich at 8.1% and Santorum at 6.8%, which only leaves 0.5% for Ron Paul and all the others?!!!  Something is seriously wrong here and needs to be looked in to . . .
