Jon Huntsman continues to be the adult in the Republican room, warning his party not to be extreme.

“You can’t run away from mainstream science, for example, and expect to win the race. You can’t be on an extreme end of politics and expect to win over the independent vote. That’s going to be a critical calculus in making sure that the next president is a Republican. You can’t avoid that reality.”

Huntsman spoke to David Gregory on Meet the Press.

When Gregory pushed him, Huntsman did admit he was alarmed by how some of his GOP rivals in the presidential debates indicated they would be in favor of economic default, which he classified as an extreme position, because “a default would have destroyed this economy.” Huntsman also weighed in on Mitt Romney‘s chances against President Obama, suggesting he could lose the general election because of his frequent flip-flops, but admitted he would support Romney were he the GOP nominee.
