Despite The Narrative, Romney Still Won Two In A Row
The overwhelming sentiment I’m getting from reading the various headlines on Mitt Romney’s win tonight in the New Hampshire primary is that he won but he’s still not a strong candidate.
The headlines tonight:
5 Years Campaigning, Less Than 40%?
-The Huffington Post
Romney finishes first, but battered
The hell that now awaits him
Maybe this sentiment is true but I would like to point out that Romney just won the first two stops of the election season and that is a big deal. He is the first non-incumbent Republican to pull-off this feat. Despite the slim margin in Iowa and not winning by as large a margin in New Hampshire as some expected, Romney has solidified himself as the front-runner – as he has been all along – and it’s looking increasingly likely that he will be the Republican nominee.
Also noteworthy tonight is that none of the GOP candidates dropped out of the race. Will Romney make it 3 for 3 in South Carolina?
