...well, at least that's the case in Dixville Notch, the tiny New Hampshire town that obsessively prides itself on voting before anyone else in the nation:
Romney and Huntsman received two votes each. Coming in second with one vote apiece were Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
For the Democrats, President Barack Obama received three votes.
We'll be covering the New Hampshire primary right here all afternoon long. While the winner will presumably be Mitt Romney—he's been spending money in this state for five years straight now—we'll have to keep a close eye on the numbers. As Politico says, anything less than a resounding win for Romney is a signal of weakness that might be exploited in South Carolina, and the future of the tone of this race depends on how Gingrich, Paul, and Huntsman do in the final tally. I'm hoping, too, to see Santorum hit bottom tonight. Stay tuned!
