He would destroy Obama in the general election. Sadly, he won't get a chance to do that, because the same people who think Obama=Romney will also say Obama=Huntsman.

The Mormon thing is a non-issue to me. Maybe I'm being overly cynical, but I imagine a lot of politicians use religion the same way they use other organizations to gain favor. Is Obama's and Clinton's own personal Christian belief any more relevant than Huntsman and Romney's beliefs? I don't think so.

I won't vote for Romney under any circumstance, but Huntsman is another case. He does seem more conservative and consistent than Romney. I might vote Huntsman if he were the Nomination, but I'm still leaning toward Ron Paul after this last debate. However, Huntsman really shone in tonight's debate. These concerns that Royal mentioned are concerning for me, but are far less than my concerns about Perry & Romney, and perhaps no more worrisome than my concerns about Cain, Paul, and Gingrich. (Bachman and Santorum are off my radar). It's certainly time for Huntsman to have his 15 minutes to surge to the top. It will make for a lot of jokes, but I see no reason why Gingrich and Cain are more viable than Huntsman- who probably had more lasting appeal than the other flavor of the week candidates. I'm certainly more favorable to Huntsman than I am to Romney- even if he does initially come off as an Diet Pepsi version of Romney. He's doing well now to set himself apart from Mitt. I wouldn't be surprised to see him start to surge in the polls.
