Skip to comments.He's baaaack!: Romney destroys all other potential Republicans in N.H. presidential primary poll
Posted on 07/11/2014 5:35:56 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The WMUR/Granite State Poll gives Christie a first-place 19 per cent showing among New Hampshire Republicans
But when Romney is added to the mix, he draws 39-percent support and leaves everyone else in single digits
Paul Ryan has the highest 'favorable' numbers of the field, at 55 per cent
Christie's 46 per cent favorable number is soft since a separate 36 per cent say they don't like him
When asked which potential White House hopeful they would never support, More Republicans name Christie than any other pol.
Chris Christie narrowly leads the pack of potential Republican presidential candidates in a poll of New Hampshire residents released Friday, but Mitt Romney crushes the competition when his name is added to the field.
Christie, the cantankerous and controversial New Jersey governor, emerged as the most polarizing name on a list of 13 politicians presented during a phone poll between June 19 and July 1.
While 46 per cent of New Hampshire Republicans like him, another 36 per cent don't. And he topped the list when GOP respondents were asked who they definitely would not vote for.
But with 19 per cent support in a hypothetical presidential primary, Christie has emerged as the flavor-of-the-month front-runner.
All 13 potential Republican candidates in the WMUR/Granite State Poll have either fed speculation about their plans for 2016 or allowed pundits to place their names in contention.
But former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has said he will not run for president again, comes out far ahead when his name is added to the mix posting numbers nearly as dominant as Hillary Clinton's in the Democratic field....

What do you call a Republican in N.H.?
A Democrat in a cheap republican suit.
No Hampshire is not an accurate measuring stick of a Pubbie candidate’s viability.
I hate New Hampshire. Why does that little piss ant state have so much say so regarding who gets nominated?
NO, NO, NO ...No more Romney. The Dems chose him for us in the last election, don’t let them dictate our candidate again.
Not going to happen, but it does raise the question looking at that list..... WHO?
Romney owns a hut on a lake up there. They no longer believe in live free or die.
Oh yes Willard the undocumented president...
Does Romney Earn America’s Merit
Dont' forget Iowa, a state with a caucus format, meaning they have only a little tiny piss ant population that votes. These two little odd ball piss ant voter populations are way out of proportion. This has got to stop.
BTW, Newt's SC vote total was more than Iowa and NH combined for all six candidates
.and it's not like SC is a huge state by any means
if that puts it in perspective
Romney? Christie? I don’t understand the appeal of Jake or the Fatman here.
Has Romney said anything about the illegal aliens yet ???
its been several days since Gov Palin gave a statement...
he usually copies Sarah days later as though her words were his original...
‘here’ meaning there in New Hampshire
The party is over.
Major loser. Won’t be getting any votes from this household.
Romney and Perry. Count neither one of them out for 2016. It all depends on what the GOP-e decides to give us.
Chihuahua Romney - the One and the Only "Magic RINO(TM)":
Mitt Romney and Lil' Ricky Santorum celebrate Political Assassination of 2012 Conservative GOP Presidential Candidates (Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachman ...)
This is insane.
We already tried Romney last time.
We tried Romney.
Romney won’t get any more at any time in the future, than what he got last time.
We tried Romney.
Let’s run a real candidate next time.
At this point Romney looks good.....
In another year, he might look even better.
But, against whom? Cruz? Jindal? and a bunch of other “undeclared” candidates?
This is the media trying to foist this loser on the GOP again.
Hell, why don’t they try to convince McCain, or Graham, or some other mushy RINO to jump in and spend buckets of cash.
If one were to keep in mind who does the left and the media fear the most, those names are not even on that list.
(That's not an endorsement of Romney by me -- far from. Just making the observation that this is all "buyers remorse.")
If he runs I know he’ll get at least one less vote than he got the last time.
I believe Bob Dole is still alive.
Each party should have their primaries on different days. Start with the states that voted most for them last time around.
Go to www.runtedrun.org and donate NOW! WE need TED CRUZ to come out early as OUR CHOICE for the 2016 REpublican candidate!
Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey are looking good at this remove.
what’ the surprise here? N.H. is the land of the RINO and the Food Stamp Republican.
I wonder if they polled a STATE THAT MATTERS is it would be the same? NO!
There is a reason the RINOS like the calendar of primaries...It allows them to unfairly influence the outcome
That would really by an exciting match up — NOT!
Romney vs Hillary.
He lost to the guy who lost to Obama.
He lost to Obama.
Hillary lost to Obama.
Yeah, what a match up.
A liberal Republican verses a leftist Democrat — difficult to see much difference.
That Free State Project worked out fine.
Make that 2 less.
You mean Christie got his stomach stapled for nothing?
Mitt is only a few months older than she who can’t be named.
If romney runs Ted needs to remind him of his third debate with obama.
Even newly elected Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas complained that Romney failed to get across that there are two viewpoints and directions for the country and that he erred by trying to be a nice guy. As Cruz said, Im pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama in the third debate proving once again that comedy is harder than it looks.
My suspicion at this point is the media trying to weaken the candidate of the party’s choosing.
The one who had zero support in this poll was Kasich. And the GOP convention is going to he held...in Cleveland.
At this point, I would say the “party” is lining up to get behind Kasich and have the big celebration in his state.
I like Kasich.... but enough to be president ???
Just trying to predict the outcome... and I could be wrong.
It’s said that Republican primary voters outside of Red Hampshire are so uninformed and hence motivated to follow the lead of Red Hampshire time and time again.
I just did a Google search for the phrase “Adlai Romney”. There was only one hit, so this post will be the second time it has been used on the internet. I fear that there will end up being many, many more instances! No more Romney, please!
I like Greg Gutfeld and Andy Levy better (not to mention Sarah, of course) if we’re picking candidates from the Fox News lineup. LOL
If that list is the best crowd the GOP can come up with in two years they’ll deserve to lose.
YES! Love that idea.
You don’t feel that Senator Ted Cruz is a viable candidate? Have you ever read his biography?
I have zero experience in politics, and am generally a failure at life, and I would make a better president than most on that list.
Now it's "live free or whatever."
I was not a Romney supporter but the difference between a dictator like King Obama, I had to choice to make. Being a responsible voter to the majority of the voters was and always will be an obligation and to deny that is foolish.
A dead cat would be a better choice than the majority of the list.
Below is a link to one of the best strips on the 1984 Meadow Party Convention, for those who can remember Bloom County.
At least the Republicans pretend to oppose the liberal agenda from time to time and are not looking to be obliterated in 2014. That is where we would be with Romney.
It’s New Hampshire — what do you expect???
New Hampshire gave us Juan McCain 4 years earlier.
It wasn't as clear as that: remember how there were [several] instances of things like retroactive primary rule-changes?
And then there was the whole RNC vote/teleprompter incident, oh and the bus incident, too.
I mean, seriously, look at what congress does[n't] do.
