The uptight Massachusetts influence has created that big a gap?

Well, if they found a reason to switch to Obama this month, they at the very least have their heads up their as*es.

I was at a client site in Concord, NH about seven years ago. That is exactly what I was told by a local what is happening to the state.

"Obama up big in swing-state New Hampshire"

BIG swing state? New Hampshire has 4 electoral votes, how can they swing anything? I guess any good news for "the made for television president" excites the media.

After the NYT poll showing Romney leading nationwide the call went out for all the fellow-travelers to gin up some good Obama numbers.

Some claim the state is infected by New Yorkers moving in ruining the state like ex-NYers did to VT. The Mass exiles are more of the right, at least libertarian.

NH is not a swing state. The only way Romney wins NH is if this turns out to be a massive wave election where Romney carries most of the states.

NH is a swing state in the sense that it has voted for the eventual winner in 8 out of the last 10 elections. So does it swing to a winner or make a winner? With Romney a close neighbor I’d bet it goes R this year which looks like another swing to the winner year to me.

“I left Massachusetts because I hated Romneycare. At least if the Supremes toss Obamacare it is very unlikely he can pass it again in a second term. Not so sure about Mitt”.

That’s my guess anyhow.

You are correct...the problem is more New Yorkers than Massholes...not sure which is worse...the NY’ers, or ticks. Of course; they are BOTH parasites.

Got to remember that NH is in the northeast. Obama has pretty much lost what is called “flyover country” . Still pretty much one and done.

In 2010 the voters of New Hampshire kicked *both* their Congresscritters (who were Rats) to the kerb and replaced them with Republicans.And at the same time they elected a Republican to the United States Senate.And now,all of a sudden,they're gonna give Osama Obama a landslide victory?

Sorry,I'm not buying it! Not for a minute.

Wow, New Hampshire.....how many electoral votes is that?

This is gonna be a close one.Anyone,on either side,who says otherwise is delusional.In 2000 algore came within something like 1000 votes of carrying NH.And if he "had" carried it the "hanging chads" would have meant *nothing*,algore would be "former President algore" today.Check the stats.

WE MUST FIGHT FOR EVERY ELECTORAL VOTE!

PPP is an arm of the Dem party. Rasmussen is the only poll I believe in. Obama is sinking fast in NC per Drudge headline 51%-43%. NC is also a swing state.

Ditto, I call BS on this NH poll. Obama is NOT popular around here at all. Also, most Massholes who move up here, tend to be the conservatives that did it to escape Mass.
The problem has been New Yorkers and other people form the mid Atlantic that are retiring to their lakefront vacation home.

However, 2 years ago NH swung back to Republican in a huge way. We retook the NH house, NH senate, both US congress seats and kept retiring Judd Gregg’s US Senate seat. So unless they polled Keene, Durham and Hanover(all college towns)I call BULL SH*T on this poll.

In 2010 the voters of New Hampshire kicked *both* their Congresscritters (who were Rats) to the kerb and replaced them with Republicans.

Pro-choice retread Congressman Charlie Bass...Republican, a la Collins, Snowe, and Romney. Many in NH voted GOP in the belief that they would make the attempt to overturn the 'gay marriage' law...of course; once the GOP legislature was seated; repeal of gay marriage was relegated to the back burner. (Suckers.) Bass and Guinta were the beneficiaries of the 'down ticket' vote. Even at that, Bass barely eaked out a razor-thin victory over baby-butcher 'Annie' McLean Kuster. She is running against Bass again...

Here are some internals:

Dem 34%
Rep 31%
Indep 35%

Liberal 33%
Moderate 31%
Conservative 36%

These numbers and favorable/unfavorable numbers (52/45 favorable for Obama, including nearly 60% favorable rating from "moderates"? - no way).

It just don't jibe with the recent experience of those of us who live here.

“New Hampshire is a swing state? Really?”

Yes, it is. Really.

It’s the only state in the northeast where conservatism still has some traction. Not as much as it once had any more, but “some”.

And its 3 electoral votes will become very important in the election. They may end up as being the total that secures the victory for Romney.

This election will be a close one. Not necessary close in the blue states, and not close in the red states. But it will be a battle in the purple “swing states”. And I predict the electoral college vote may be the closest in election history.

My opinion only, I realize yours may be otherwise.

One other thought — as leftist as we regard Vermont these days, up until the early 1960’s it was a “reliably Republican” state. What happened?
