Exit polls indicate that NH voters have doubts re: Romney. Liberal left media and education polls appear to have missed the mark. Turn out is high and there is dissatisfaction re the performance of govt insiders.
Most realized that the Iowa event was but political "fluff." It was a "popularity poll" no more, no less and no delegate votes were allotted. The real meat of the election process has now started.
A fed judge has blocked the printing of Va. primary ballots and may decide on the legality of the access rules. A suit has been filed in AZ which tried the same. States control rules for state elections but federal elections are to be another matter and held under federal rules.
What we are watching is a Republican party trying to take back control from conservatives in the party but the "money" will go to the conservative candidates again as it did in 2010.
The occupy movement roughed up a Republican candidate and aids in todays primary and as it grows, occupy will harm the democrat party's prospects, assuming they keep targeting Republicans/Conservatives. "Some" of the sensible things they believe have general appeal (including me) but their tactics certainly do NOT!
I am glad the Tea Party has not resorted to those tactics. We put methods in place early to eliminate those who would act in an unacceptable manner. To date they have worked and we are constantly refining them.
We should have the first primary results and emerging trends tonight.
