Islands turned out in a bitter cold night to cast their vote.
For the GOP presidential candidates and it wasn't until just a short time ago that.
The winner was determined Mitt Romney in what is become one of the closest caucus -- ever.
Our very -- rich Edson is out this morning and joins us from the -- the next stop on the campaign circuit Manchester, New Hampshire.
And -- the question I wanted to ask you last hour has to do a Jon Huntsman.
Didn't bother to campaign in Iowa but all -- efforts in the New Hampshire can you write him off he came in dead last denial.
I think that's the reason why can't write him off that and and that's at least when his camp -- say is that it and really even try in Iowa and therefore the 1% that he got.
Is understandable it's explainable he's been here in Iowa and in fact or in New Hampshire effect what he's been saying is.
So what who cares who won the Iowa Caucuses it -- words that there are number other contests that -- a look at the results for a quick.
Recapping what happened last night me forget about last -- a couple of hours ago.
120 -- -- votes cast and eight.
Eight yes eight vote differential between Mitt Romney who wins in Rick's -- 45%.
A piece Ron Paul finishing in third he gets here in New Hampshire on Friday Newt Gingrich.
A very disappointing 13% -- -- fall from the polls that he's had Perry 10% Michelle Bachmann.
At 5% she's not even coming to -- Hampshire today shall be in South Carolina probably has something to do with the forecast as for the winner Mitt Romney.
Instead of a talk about the field took his victory.
And focus squarely.
President Obama take -- let's.
And you're working -- I am working we're all working together because of our passion for this country and -- concern that is being led by a president.
Who may be a nice guy but justice over its head.
So take a look at the top two -- here is that all the talking discussion will be about today they are both headed here in new Romney and Rick Santorum of events that.
State of New Hampshire throughout the day you know what does this mean when these two guys finish the top they both.
Are appealing to two very different parts of the Republican Party that Romney.
Definitely the more moderate wing of the party and Rick Santorum.
Really appealing to what is a very evangelical base and social conservative base in Iowa and that showed here with his 25%.
As for Mitt Romney.
He can claim victory even by -- some folks are saying it's of the dominating victory he outspent Rick Santorum he's got a much.
Figure apparatus around the country especially in Iowa than Rick Santorum but -- -- from put a lot of time into Iowa.
-- -- all 99 character that counties that's the kind of voter base.
That he really appeals to you.
It's a -- got from here this is likely very good news for Mitt Romney he has a very sizable lead here in the state of New Hampshire.
Continuing that steady momentum that he's displayed while other candidates have -- And fallen down that Romney has remained very much of the top.
Back to you -- -- very quickly do we just -- perhaps ignore New Hampshire and put our attention on South Carolina because of what you just mentioned the evangelical the religious right and -- popularity with them.
You know he's going to be here he's gonna try to compete here he can't afford to finish down far in the polls are four in in the in the results of New Hampshire once that begins.
Now that this is actually started.
He you have to take -- approach -- this is what might be the problem with Jon Huntsman -- you can't just pick and -- the states.
That you want to competed you can't just she -- the states that you feel show your evangelical base in annual perform much better and as opposed to a more moderate pace like you would have possibly here in New Hampshire and so that as these contests continue want.
You've got to start to build some momentum and right now if if your Mitt Romney you've got to be happy at least that you can say I.
One Iowa yes by eight votes that historically -- votes but still I want Iowa on move on a New Hampshire is up by -- very wide margin he continued this kind of steadily role his way out of the Republican nomination at least that's his campaign so.
Great -- in in Manchester, New Hampshire getting ready for the New Hampshire primary thank you very much for joining us on this cold Wednesday morning wanna take a quick.
