They pick presidents in New Hampshire!
So says Republican candidate Jon Huntsman.
The “they” part of this theory bears a closer look.
I think it should be:
“They pick corn in Iowa. Democrats and Independents pick Republican candidates in New Hampshire.”
John Huntsman knows this full well and is depending on an Independent voter turnout to help him make the top four Republican finalists.
Having a Republican Primary which allows non-party members chose the candidate is like having people who will not eat in your restaurant tell you what goes on the menu.
I wouldn’t put too much stock in the NH Primary from what I know of it.
