New Yorkers and 'deadheads'...
In the 1936 landslide, when Alf Landon carried only two states, Maine and Vermont, I think he lost New Hampshire by only a very narrow margin. He could have swept northern New England!
“Live Free or Die!” Should be much more than a statement on a liscense plate!
The state has 4 electoral votes.
Obama - 384,826 Votes = 54% of total votes cast
McCain - 316,534 Votes = 45% of total votes cast
It was discovered by the homosexuals and yuppies who couldn't afford a weekend/retirement home in Greenwich.
A 58 yo female, Democrat, NH friend,who voted Obama (preferred Hillary), was interested in Romney during the Republican primary race. She would describe herself as an “economic conservative” (which was bs).
Now she’s talking about good VP candidates for Obama.... I think she hopes Hillary will join Obama’s ticket. Perhaps that “Hillary hope” keeps her in the Obama camp. Thus, she might respond to a poll as supporting Obama.
Another thing, New Hampshire is “women friendly”... this poll may reflect support for his recent comments on gay marriage.
In the 2000 election Bush beat Gore 271 to 266. And he won the 4 NH electoral votes. New Hampshire has since went to the Dems but it was certainly an important swing state 12 years ago.
I’m certain NH “swings” both ways IYKWIM. lol
That, plus the fact that even when Vermont was in its last days of being “reliably Republican” it was in no way “Conservative” at least not if you go by the politicians it sent to Congress.
Lots of places in the Northeast, such as the Philly suburbs, used to be “reliably Republican” — but NEVER Conservative — and they went lurching leftward after the Republican Revolution of 1994 in which eeeevil Bible-thumping Southern Conservatives took over the party.
NH was a swing state in ‘08. My family worked on McCain’s campaign. But, I’ve heard since then that we are no longer considered a swing state. That’s why the title of this article caught my eye.
That's back in the days when the republicans were kept around just so the democrats had someone to run against and put a whipping on.
Plus the fact that a "republican" in the northeast was generally much more liberal than a democrat south of the Mason-Dixon line.
Romney will crush Obama in NH. I'm looking forward to seeing some fresh polling from Rasmussen.
