Ron Paul Polling at 5% in New Hampshire (Highest Yet in New Hampshire)
USA Election Polls ^ | September 12, 2007

Posted on 09/12/2007 9:00:07 AM PDT by Austin Willard Wright

New Hampshire is the state we expect Ron Paul to shine, not Iowa. They are largely anti-war -- the last Iraq war poll had approval ratings as low as 14% suggesting a large majority of Republicans are disenfranchised with the war. Indpendents can vote for candidates in either party at the New Hampshire primary. So no pollster is going to be able to correctly quantify which candidate will get a boost but if the Independents are anti-war, I think it is safe to say that Ron Paul would be the candidate to benefit.

Isn’t this the state that has the slogan something like “Live free or die”, or am I all wet?

Correct. I get the impression Ron Paul believes we have a third option.

Nationally Ron Paul is polling at 1% now according to Gallup. Considering New Hampshire is hardly a conservative state, I for one am surprised he is polling so low there. I would think he would draw 20+% there. If he is polling only 5% in New Hampshire, that is pretty pathetic.

Actually if non-Republican voters (which the GOP needs to fortify its shrinking base) were included it would be higher. This only includes self-defined Republcans.

NH is not a conservative state. Leans independent / democrat, not conservative.

Before the 2006 elections, both of the state houses were Republican (the NH House was probably the most conservative state legislature in the country) and the governor before the current governor was Craig Benson who was also a pretty conservative Republican. Also before 2006, both US Senators from NH and both congressmen were Republicans.

True enough that in 2006, Republicans took a drubbing in NH (losing both congressional seats and both houses of the state legislature) but Republicans nationwide took a drubbing and NH Republicanism is the old fashioned, more libertarian type of Republicanism...no taxes, no regulations and small government...and the small government philosophy applies to both domestic and foreign policies...so...it hard to know whether 2006 is part of a trend left in NH...or whether it was just a reaction to Iraq...that remains to be seen

5% in New Hampshire?

With its libertarian leanings, I’d figure Rep. Paul would be doing somewhat better, but then again, this is just the GOP they’re asking, so this sounds about right.

He’s also polling SIXTH among Republican candidates ... behind Romney, Giuliani, McCain, Thompson, and Huckabee.

- McCain is pretty much dead in the water ... and has 12%.
- Thompson has been in the race a WEEK ... and has 11%.
- Huckabee is as unlikely to win as I am ... and has 6%.

You’ll forgive me if I’m not overly impressed with Ron Paul’s 5%, and 6th Place standing.

Meanwhile, Paul's campaign is taking money and attention from a conservative candidate who can actually win, and his followers are using Free Republic to help him do it.

Perhaps the same can be said for a tiny group of "Freepers" bent on suicide, who continue to waste bandwidth on a candidate who "can't win".

Clowns? You are talking about 99% of the FreeRepublic community.

Shall I ping Jim Robinson on your comment?

Maybe the republican party should once again become the party of conservatism instead of the "lets out democrat the democrats" party.

What specific policy positions of Paul's do you think make him a lunatic?

I joined this site recently and did not really support any specific candidate...but the more I read these anti-Paul posts, the more unimpressed with I am with those posting them...a lot of name-calling...admittedly some funny barbs at Paul...but not a lot of deep-thinking criticism of his positions from what I've seen

Thn how do you explain John McCain’s victory in the 2000 New Hampshire Primary? He’s certainly not and “old-fashioned more libertarian type” Republican.

New Hampshire is no different than any other northeastern State ... a New England Republican would be a liberal Democrat in a truly conservative state (like Texas, for instance).

Putting things in perspective...

1) There is no previous LA Times/Bloomberg poll for New Hampshire, so no trends can be noted.

2) "New Hampshire: 1,312 registered (+/-3), 618 Democratic primary voters (+/-4), and 412 Republican primary voters (+/-5)" -- yes, you're reading that correctly, the margin of error at a 95% confidence level is +/-5. That's practically worthless.

In short, this poll really tells us nothing. A series of follow-up polls showing trends may help, though the high MOE would make them suspect unless the trends were very strong.

Mind you...I despise McCain...for his stance on immigration...for his McCain-Feingold...and, personally, I think he was wrong on Iraq...but, believe it or not, McCain always ranks as one of the most fiscally conservative members of the Senate. And remember, in February 2000, not many people viewed GWB as a real fiscal conservative (boy how that view has proven to be correct)
