I PERSONALLY PREFER RON PAUL'S EARLIER INDIE WORK
The main takeaway from Suffolk University's new New Hampshire poll (via CNN) is that you can forget about Santorum-upset fantasies (or Paul-upset fantasies or Huntsman-upset fantasies), because Mitt has this in the bag:
The poll showed Romney maintaining his lead with 43 percent of the vote, followed by Paul (14 percent), Newt Gingrich (9 percent), Jon Huntsman (7 percent), while Rick Santorum (6 percent), fresh off an impressive Iowa Caucus second-place showing, managed to climb another point and is now within striking distance of third place.
But here's my favorite nugget from the poll:
[Ron] Paul dropped two points, from 16 percent to 14 percent, despite a third-place finish in Iowa last night....
Paul's drop was primarily due to younger voters ages 18-34, where he dropped from 29 percent to 18 percent.
Really, kids? Ron Paul is, like, so two weeks ago?
Please tell me you're rejecting him because you've learned about the racism, the gay-bashing, and the fundy-coddling anti-abortion position, or, perhaps because you've now fully grasped the Darwinian cruelty of libertarian economics. I really hope you haven't dropped him because he flopped in Iowa and now is just not cool.
