    He did not seem to REGISTER WITH those looking for...

    "In the end, Mr Huntsman did not seem to register, crazy or otherwise, with those Republicans looking for an alternative to Mr Romney or a winner against Mr Obama."
    (an excerpt from a newspaper)

    Does 'register with' mean something like 'align with' or 'convince' here?

    I wouldn't even say he didn't make an "impression," more like "failed to be noticed at all."
