Huntsman's Debut in NH


USA Today's puff piece on Jon Huntsman includes this sentence:

"He draws respectable turnout from New Hampshire voters and a huge entourage of reporters and photographers for his opening campaign tour, which ends today."

We have no idea, because USA Today doesn't tell us, what "respectable" means about actual voters, but the more important question here is: why are so many reporters turning out for a candidate at 2 percent in the polls?
