Greeting voters at a polling station in Manchester, the front-runner in the New Hampshire primary Mitt Romney says he expects "good support around the country," as he hopes to take another step closer to the Republican presidential nomination.

As supporters chanted, "Go Mitt Go," Romney is fighting last-minute attacks labeling him a corporate raider who enjoyed firing workers.

candidate debate at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, N.H. Saturday, Jan. 7, 2012.

The former governor of neighboring Massachusetts carries a sizeable lead in polls into voting day, a sufficient cushion that should force rivals Ron Paul, Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum into a battle for second place.

Romney would be the first Republican who is not an incumbent president to win the first two early voting states, after his slim eight-vote victory over former Pennsylvania Senator Santorum a week ago in the Iowa caucus.
