How can anybody look at the records of Romney and Huntsman and pick Romney?
Huntsman was a more popular governor of his state with only a 2.7% unemployment rate during the height of the recession. He was reelected with an 80% approval rating!! Huntsman actually has international experience, unlike Romney. And it happens to be with China, the most important U.S. relationship in the coming decades. Huntsman has better fiscal conservative credentials (see Romneycare, as opposed to Huntsman's historic tax cuts and flat tax) Huntsman actually supports the merits of science. Democrats actually LIKE Huntsman. Sorry to the partisan extremists, you need some Democrat support to win. So yeah. Those are just a few reasons. Why do you Romney supporters not support Huntsman?? I don't get it. And by the way, Huntsman also has private sector experience, so don't use that as a reason.

Because extremists are the ones who get picked. They want to vote for "their guy" rather than the best guy for the job.

lol... cons don't look at records... and that whole "dems like him" thing kind of kills him... for the modern GOP, dems are the enemy and if you fraternize (work with) the other side, you are a traitor

Huntsman worked for the Obama Administration and despite whatever you say about Romney, Huntsman is a clone of Obama. But democrats will just vote for Obama anyway so there is no need for him.

Huntsman is pro-China, and terrible debater and sounds just like Al Gore , dances around questions like Obama does and bases his speech on political correctness. Hes basically a phony.

Beats me. I'm a Democrat who voted for Obama in 2008, but I like Hunstman. He is by far the most intelligent and qualified candidate for president running, from either party. I would absolutely vote for him over Obama... More

Huntsman has been campaigning in New Hampshire, after taking a pass on Iowa. If he does well (very well) then everyone will start to take him seriously.

how was it that the Rapist Bill Clinton as Governor of Arkansas had the State Troopers deliver unwilling women to him for sexual reasons BUT still got elected as president? The American voter only remembers what he sees last on TV.......

i would echo what the other poster said . his problem is that he is reasonable rather than a loon. . i think everything you said about him is true and iits the reason he cant win. would you think that someone who listens to rush or glen beck could handle his logic.
