He's baaaack!: Romney destroys all other potential Republicans in N.H. presidential primary poll
The London Daily Mail ^ | July 11, 2014 | David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor

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, NO, NO ...No more Romney. The Dems chose him for us in the last election, don’t let them dictate our candidate again.

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

We already tried Romney last time.

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.

One shouldn't be surprised given the overwhelming buyers remorse of Obama.

(That's not an endorsement of Romney by me -- far from. Just making the observation that this is all "buyers remorse.")

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.

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, “I’m 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.

True.
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.

It's amazing how many dimwits here forgot that the Republican Voters chose Romney in 2012. So to not support the Voters is proof that these Romney haters were actually communists Democrats. It was your duty to the voters to support who they preferred. And these types decided that King Obama was a better choice. Idiots.

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.

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.

I am sure Romney will get the nod once again. He has a prơven track record of being able to throw an election that should have been a shoo-in. Republicans like that in their presidential candidates.
