There was little doubt that Mitt was going to win New Hampshire. For some, the size of the win was what mattered. I, however, never bought into that. The fact is that Romney is beginning to role. All the talk of Republicans failing to rally around a candidate is starting to fall away:
In interviews as they left their polling places, New Hampshire voters said the economy was the issue that mattered most to them, and a candidate’s ability to defeat Obama outranked other qualities.
Voters are not happy with Obama, in many cases very unhappy. And the ability to beat Obama is goal #1. I happen to resonate with this view. I happen to think that Newt would make a better President but I think that Romney will present a better opponent to Obama. Therefore, I have to hope that Romney wins the nomination. An imperfect Republican is much preferable to a known Obama.
