"Romney was backed by 42 percent of New Hampshire conservatives, more than twice the share won by his nearest rival, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, and similar to the margin by which he prevailed among tea party supporters. It was almost double the portion of Iowa conservatives who had backed Romney.
New Hampshire moderates and liberals also leaned toward Romney, with 37 percent supporting him, more than any other contender."
