Huntsman Who?

Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Former Governor of Utah, speaks at the CBS News/National Journal foreign policy debate at the Benjamin Johnson Arena, Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011, in Spartanburg, S.C. The debate covered foreign policy, which has gotten little attention from the GOP candidates in recent weeks. When they have touched on it, they've criticized Obama's handling of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, his support for NATO's intervention in Libya and his treatment of China's currency, among other issues.

Last night, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman spoke to more than 100 voters at a Portsmouth Elks Lodge. It was the 100th event Huntsman has held in the first-in-the-nation primary state, a state Huntsman has targeted as his only hope of advancing his long-shot campaign.

One hundred events is a heck of a commitment, and it's far more than any other candidate has held. But it's not doing Huntsman much good; a new Bloomberg poll, conducted by Iowa-based Selzer & Co., shows Huntsman's at just 7 percent in the Granite State, good for fifth place and 33 points behind front-runner Mitt Romney.

And Hotline polling editor Steve Shepard pointed out a bigger problem for Huntsman: Despite all the events he's held, his campaign hasn't actually contacted that many voters -- or at least they don't recall interacting with the campaign at all.
