4:31 am
iowa, he easily won. ron paul finished second followed by john hunts man and newt gingrich. susan mcginnis is in new hampshire with more. susan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, terrell. after winning only the first two contests, mitt romney is already talking as if he is the nominee. meanwhile, the other candidates are struggling to emerge as the conservative alternative to romney. mitt romney hopes to continue his winning streak down south. >> we made history. >> he'll head to south carolina today after scoring another victory last night in the new hampshire primary. the former massachusetts governor briefly soaked up the win before launching a blistering attack on president obama. >> this president has enacted job killing regulations. i'll eliminate them. he lost our aaa credit rating. i'll restore it. he passed obama care. i'll repeal it. >> romney leads the polls in south carolina. but faces a tougher conservative crowd there. >> he certainly had a clear-cut
4:32 am
victory. but we're nibbling at his heels. >> second place finisher ron paul played off attacks from his critics. >> they are telling the truth because we are dangerous to the stat status quo of this country. >> after spending weeks campaigning in new hampshire, jon huntsman came in third. he's promising to take the fight to south carolina. >> third place is a ticket to ride, ladies and gentlemen. >> i think the fact that he's moving forward in south carolina is going to cause a lot of people to really take another look at him. >> after disappointing finishes, newt gingrich and rick santorum are counting on south carolina's conservative base to give them a boost. >> in the next couple of days, make a list of every person you know in south carolina. >> we can win this race. >> rick perry, who skipped new hampshire, has been concentrating on drumming up support in south carolina. he said the results show a race is still wide open. >> rick perry is still hanging
4:33 am
in there. he's hoping terrell, that being a southerner that south carolina will be a little bit kinder to him than these first two disasters. >> susan mcginnis in manchester. thank you so much. good to see you this morning. exit polls indicate romney had the support of 42% of voters in new hampshire who say they were conservative. 45% of new hampshire voters ho say the economy was the most important consideration supported romney. he received the most support for whom-electability was the top concern. 62% of them back romney. correspondent bob schieffer has more on what this means. >> there's no doubt about it. the big winner is the man who won. that is mitt romney. he not only won, but he sort of met expectations, got about 40% of the vote. i think that's what people thought he would have gotten. if he had gotten considerably less than that, there would have been a real question about whether he was able to put together enough to finally wind up with the nomination. but i think he's pretty much in
4:34 am
the cat-bird seat now. he's won both the iowa caucuses and new hampshire. first time any republican other than the presidential candidate, an incumbent president, has been able to do that. the other big winner is jon huntsman. he was poll around 1% or 2%. he winds up in third place, pretty good finish for him. he said he would probably drop out if he didn't finish at least third. you cannot discount ron paul who winds up with 20-something percent of the vote or something close to that. you know, he continues to do that. i don't know many people, independent observers, who think he's going to get the nomination, but as long as he continues to pick up this much of the vote in these contests, it keeps the other opposites of mitt romney from being able to assemble a larger share of the
4:35 am
vote. so mitt romney leaves here, he got kicked around a little bit. but he leaves here as the winner and he's clearly now in the cat-bird seat. this is bob schieffer in new hampshire. as a reporter, campaign 2012, heads to the first primary in the south. south carolina. the political climate much different there. unemployment is much higher than either iowa or new hampshire and relinl on plays a big role in elections. south carolina may be the last hope for conservatives to stop mitt romney as well. randall pinkston reports from columbia. >> reporter: 6,000 people attend the historic first baptist church in columbia, south carolina. making it an important stop for presidential candidates. >> jesus is speaking to us. >> the reverend is the pastor. many in his congregation have not yet chose n a candidate in the upcoming primary. >> today i asked our staff, i said how many of you decided who your candidate is? no one raised their hand.
4:36 am
>> rick perry is banking on winning over some of the church-goers. he's already here in south carolina ahead of the other republican hopefuls who are still in new hampshire. perry is making sure the evangelicals know he shares their faith. >> i understood as a young 14-year-old, as i gave my life to jesus christ, that was going to be a central part of who i am. >> 55% of the republican voters in south carolina are evangelicals. more than double the percentage in new hampshire. that means the candidates will be trying to win over a very different audience here. mitt romney knows the challenge ahead. a mormon, he finished fourth here in 2008. he's now leading the polls. but voters like first baptist church member ann marie green aren't sold on him or anyone else. >> one of the things we don't have in a candidate right now is somebody that gets voters >> about 70% of republican voters in south carolina say they want a president who shares
