Mitt Romney has cut into President Obamas lead in New Hampshire, according to a WMUR Granite State poll released on Tuesday.
Obama still leads Romney 49 percent to 43 in New Hampshire, but thats down from the presidents 9-point lead in April.
Obama leads Romney by 14 points among female voters, while Romney has a 6-point advantage among men. Independents, who have tilted towards Romney nationally, are split between the two 41 to 41 in the Granite State.
New Hampshire is one of 12 battleground states that will be critical in determining the outcome of the 2012 election.
Romney launched his presidential bid and officially began his general election campaign in New Hampshire. He also owns a vacation house and maintains close ties to the Granite State, which is near his home state of Massachusetts, where he served as governor.
The poll of 521 New Hampshire adults was conducted between July 5 and July 15 and has a 4.3 percent margin of error.
Yup, I don’t see Obama’s latest “you didn’t do it yourself” speech helping him in the polls either. We’ll see, I guess.
There is no good way to spin Romney. Bain is killing him across the board. He was ahead at one point in NH. How is this a gain?
"Bain is killing him across the board. He was ahead at one point in NH. How is this a gain?"
The article states that Romney was down by nine in a previous poll from this pollster, and now Obama's lead has shrunk in the most current poll. The Bain attacks basically started in full last week, and this poll would reflect any effect that they had in NH. Yet Romney's standing has improved. Seems like a gain, no?
NH still favors Teh One? I guess they don’t take their motto seriously.
Interesting! Which poll? Date? Link?
This is a poll of adults. The only requirement to participate is that you’re drawing air. Registered voters would narrow the gap and likely voters would probably have it pretty close to even. Bottom line, this is a worthless poll conducted for the sole purpose of spinning Obama’s lousy performance on just about everything.
49%, while below 50%, is too close to 50%. 47% or below would spell real danger for Obama. Noteworthy, however, is that this is a poll of “adults” - not likely voters or even registered voters.
The debates can swing these states... can Obama deflect enough of his failures before the public not behind Super Pac falsehoods... And how can we better convince woman in this nation that Obama is a loser....?
“Adults” not even “registered voters” and a 4.3 MoE in a state that FLIPPED 300 local seats two years ago. Hmmm I wonder if we can pull this out? /s/
But for voter fraud, the opposition to obama should be picking out curtains for the occupied office.
