Huntsman Popular Among NH Independents


Striking the right chord with Independents could explain former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s surge to third place in a recent New Hampshire poll, reports Christian Science Monitor.

Rivals Mitt Romney pulled 38 percent, Newt Gingrich came next with 20 percent, while Huntsman eclipsed Independents’ former favorite, Ron Paul, at 13 percent. The remainder of the candidates on the ballot pulled a total of 10 percent between all of them.

In New Hampshire there are three registered independents for every two registered Republicans and are eligible to vote in the up-coming New Hampshire primary.

“If independents participate in a big way next January, Huntsman will benefit,” said David Paleologos, director of Suffolk University’s Political Research Center. “While other candidates have focused on the more traditional Republican voters, Huntsman has traction among independents, who could dominate the Republican Primary if mobilized.”

Among Granite State independents Huntsman ranks above Gingrich and just 11 percent behind Romney.
