Huntsman: I'm running in right primary

After citing Jon Huntsman's bad poll numbers and some unorthodox positions, NBC's Savannah Guthrie asks the former governor if he should really be running as a Republican.

Huntsman:

"I'm absolutely certain.

If we were to take the numbers from 2008 and 2004 and extrapolate them to the finish line, we would have had much different outcomes."

There was a lot of chatter last week about a possible, third party bid from Huntsman, but after his very conservative jobs plan and renewed embrace of Paul Ryan's deficit reduction plan, that looks less likely.

Btw, don't you wish Hillary and Rudy had won their primaries in 2008, so we wouldn't have to sit through the never-ending excuse from struggling candidates that "if polls mattered right now, we'd have President Hillary Clinton or President Giuliani"?
