FILE – In this Sept. 25, 2010 photo, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks to delegates at the New Hampshire Republican Convention in Concord, N.H., New Hampshire Republicans elected a tea party figure as their leader and rejected the establishment-backed candidate, a sign that activists in this early voting presidential state have embraced the anti-government message that helped them make major gains in November’s election. Those activists will be crucial in the state’s next big test: the 2012 primary. For an early gauge of what activists were thinking, ABC News and WMUR-TV conducted a state party-sanctioned straw poll that gave former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney 35 percent support. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who like Romney previously ran for president, came in second place with 11 percent. (AP Photo/Mary Schwalm)
