Romney Remains on Top

George Wenschhof

After last night's New Hampshire debate, Mitt Romney remains on top. None of the other Republican presidential hopefuls managed to say anything to damage front runner Mitt Romney. Instead, the lower tier candidates took turns sniping at one another. The NY Times has more here. They will have another opportunity this morning on NBC "Meet The Press".

It is looking very likely Huntsman will drop out after New Hampshire. Leaving, Santorum, Gingrich and Perry to battle for the "conservative" mantel in S. Carolina. Paul continues to be in his own universe and a stubborn gnat that only serves to stir the already muddied Republican presidential primary.

Leading some to speculate others may also drop out and coalesce around one "conservative" and anti-Romney candidate.

If Romney wins S. Carolina, it is looking like lights out for the other Republican presidential hopefuls.

All of which leaves one pondering; will another Republican enter the race? Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, and Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels are two who come quickly to mind. Both would present problems for a Mitt Romney easy path to the Republican Party nomination. Then, there is always Sarah Palin.

Stay tuned...
