Huntsman has focused nearly his entire campaign on winning the first primary in the nation in New Hampshire, but hasn't faired well at the polls, CNN reported Sunday.
"Just a few months ago, we were polling at the margin error, so to have any digit at all is a pretty big deal," Huntsman said.
The GOP hopeful appeared on the "Weekend Update" segment hosted by comedian Seth Meyers.
"Here's something you never hear at debates: Governor Huntsman, the first question is for you," Meyers said, introducing Huntsman.
"Seth, I love all of America, from Dallas, Texas, to Manchester, N.H. From the Rocky Mountains to New Hampshire's scenic Lake Winnipesaukee. From the innovation of Silicon Valley to the affordable outlet malls of North Conway, N.H.," Huntsman said.
