Jon Huntsman has stated that he’s made over 100 appearances in New Hampshire, yet he’s still near the bottom of the polls. Piers Morgan pressed him on this earlier in the week, and this is how Huntsman replied.
I know Jon Huntsman is not a very popular figure on this website, but I think he handled this question really well. What do you think? Is he a good candidate that has been over looked by the Republican electorate? Or is he an idiot who should have never quit his day job (as ambassador to China)? What do you have to say?
In one of the biggest flubs of the night, Jon Huntsman said he “wants to be the president of the 99%”. Ouch, Jon. That was not a good move. Check it out, below.
Now, to be honest with you, I think Jon had a good opportunity, maybe even a great one. He should have said,”I want to be president of the 100%”. Instead, he said, “I want to be president of the 99%. I also want to be president of the 1%.” That was an awful response, Jon.
What do you guys think? Did Huntsman miss out on a potentially great opportunity? Or is he so far back in the polls, that it wouldn’t have mattered if he delivered the new Gettysburg Address? Let us know in the comments below. Or, if you see me playing extreme frisbee in Bryant park, you can stop and talk to me then.
