I live only a few miles from NH and I can’t see how Romney can lose there. In 2010, the GOP won a senate seat, both House seats and a slew of state legislature seats throughout the state. This year they look poised to capture the governor’s seat as well (Ovide Lamontagne) and that should propel Romney to victory there.

Here is how he will lose. If everyone that supports Romney does not make sure they get other Romney supporters to the polls to vote.

How many of you have found a voting buddy for this election?

As a Southerner, I can’t fathom why some of the North Eastern states are so enamored with the Democrats. Take Maine for instance, a mostly white state populated by “rugged individualists”. Why would they think a bunch of Socialists could possibly have good policies for the country?

I just don’t get it.

These are not the internal-internal polls. From what I understand, no one knows what they are except the inner circle.

I grew up in MA... Here is my take on it as someone who LOVES the south, as the Father in Law says the stork dropped me off @ the wrong house after seeing me eat Collard Greens in NC...:-)

* A bit of elitism
* A product of what they read NYT's etc.
* It is a talk radio wasteland, I have to hunt the dial when I go back...
* The Dems for years ran their stealth candidates as Rino's on the R and destroyed the GOP from within.
* They have become so inculcated with their bureaucracy they are used to it and maneuver within it (especially zoning rules, don't even get me started on that one) rather than fire them all and start over.
* They like "living good" and don't want to get involved in politics, if so at a superficial level only.
* I think w/ the rise of southern competition going back 40 years, they lost a lot of jobs via their unionization and never recovered from it. Tangent to this, they lost generations of people that were part of making machines, tools, firearms etc many machinist and tool and die guys. It think at one point they were more part of the arsenal of democracy than they ever knew. It is all gone. Again they never recovered from it....

I was at a festival yesterday in Ohio where political yard signs were given out. The Romney signs outnumbered the Obama signs 100:3. This same festival four years ago the Obama signs were more prevelent. For that and other reasons I don’t believe O has a chance of taking Ohio. Go Buckeyes!

We started counting signed in yards a few week past. Have found one Obama sign, smack in the middle of a yard. Also found a Gary ???? sign. Both out numbered by the “Keep America Free — Fire Obama” signs, which today is over ten. Most group of R signs are in folks yards (sometimes they have a local D within the pack.) D groups are less numerous and on the sides of roads, none contain Obama/Biden signs.

Sadly, Ovide and his opponent; the vile Maggie Hassan, are running neck and neck. It is AMAZING that this state is still loaded with Obama supporters with heating oil topping $4 per gallon. Single women and lefties from NY...

The six 'least religious' states in the nation are the six New England states. I made a comment to some people about Red Hampshire being the least religious state in the nation, and a teacher in the group literally spat out "Good!"

Maybe because so many of them have been educated at the University of Maine, which officially encourages and defends the act of disrespecting the American flag.

I am from Georgia, but I lived for 3 years in upper New Hampshire, teaching at a boarding school. The state is utterly beautiful, as is Vermont, and is is Maine, but, I felt like a stranger in a strange land. And what I noticed about New England was (1) the sheer number of boarding schools . . . telling me that there is a helluva lot of money between Boston and New York, (2) that most of that money was not in the hands of ordinary people, whose lives seems rather bleak and stark in comparison to the rich kids I was carting around on sports trips to Exeter and St. Paul’s. I visited the Maine coast, but the money along it made upper New Hampshire and Vermont look even more bleak. And there was a difference in attutude toward things which I traced, if tentatively, to religion . . . Puritanisn, Unitarianism. The South, though highly Evangelical, has Anglo-Catholic roots. And, when I thought about it, it seemed to me that the Unitarian de-emphasis of the miracle of Christ and its emphasis on human perfection lend themselves to a form of liberalism as we ultimately come to worship Government, not God. Just a loose collection of thoughts, I know. But that was my experience.

I’ve lived in Maine for the last twenty years. The state is 98% white.

Southern Maine, which has the bulk of the population, is more liberal than the northern half of Maine. Southern Maine is fairly close to Massachusetts, and parts of Maine are within commutable distance to Boston. A number of Massachusetts residents have moved to Maine over the years, bringing their politics with them.

Also, Maine, especially the northern half of the state, is mostly rural. Historically, there has been a great deal of poverty in rural Maine....as poster Andy’s Mom said, no jobs. The poor tend to favorite government programs, and the politicians who promise more of these programs. The good news....the Second Amendment is very strong in this state. Hunting and firearm ownership is a way of life.

The GOP had some good results in 2010. We elected a TEA Party conservative, Paul LePage as governor....the small towns in northern Maine put him over the top. The GOP also won control of the Maine Senate and the Maine House, the first time that’s happened since the early 1960’s.

For what it’s worth, on a 10-mile stretch of road in the coastal area of Maine where I live, in the northeastern part of the state, I counted 18 Romney signs and 14 Obama signs. And one empty wooden chair with a golf club propped upon it in front of someone’s house.

Maine splits it’s electoral votes just like Nebraska, so I was hoping that northern Maine....the 2nd congressional district....would go for Romney....but I’ve only seen one Romney ad on TV so far. Maine only has a total of four electoral votes, so perhaps the Romney team is spending it’s resources on the battleground states....can’t say that I blame them.

I wasn’t aware of that flag desecration at the University of Maine, Farmington....western Maine. U. Maine’s main campus is in Orono, north of Bangor.

Most Maine resident’s do not have a college degree. As for the flag, this state is flag waving country. My experience has been that people in Maine are very pro-military and love the flag. I’ve seen plenty of roads, including rural roads, lined year round with American flags. In my area, many homes fly the flag in their front yards.

When a soldier dies in Iraq or Afghanistan, it’s a big story on the news, flags are lowered statewide, and vast numbers of people turn out for the funeral. Then there’s the troop greeters at Bangor International Airport, welcoming every flight of returning troops no matter the hour of the day or night.

Please don’t judge the people of the entire state of Maine on the disgusting actions of a handful of moonbats on a college campus. Those flakes are the exception, not the rule.

I’ve been welcomed back at the Bangor airport several times. Usually early am hours. Always brought tears to my eyes.

Mr. Chips, Thanks for bringing the faith component into it. It is a huge topic, I wasn’t sure I could do it justice. Yes, Unitarian thought maybe sliding into the other faiths in a way. A telling tangent issue is the reduction in stature of the Catholic church for a host of reasons on the east coast (some no so good) and what it has done to them even at the facility level, i.e. sell of and or consolidating of Churches. Another Tangent, the Northeast Attitude of letting Gov’t take care of things i.e. Welfare, Medicare etc vs. their poor donation habits. All of this together is quite telling how we are not “one” America anymore.....

Thank-you for your service!

You should have seen the crowds of people when the troops returned home from the Gulf War in 1991. The main terminal was packed wall to wall with people shouting “Welcome Home!” at the top of their lungs. The powers that be had to restrict the number of people entering the terminal, because it was packed tighter than a Tokyo subway.

“How many of you have found a voting buddy for this election?”

As a matter of great personal cheer, I will be going to the polls with TWO of my sons this year - another son and his wife voting in another county - I am so proud of my voting buddies.

It used to be just spouse and self, now there are five of us.

Sorry we are in messed up California, but we can still do some good.

Because the people here in the northeast are inexplicably moronic.

I used to bristle and try to defend the north when Southerners ragged on it. I can't any more, as most criticisms leveled at the north are completely well-founded. The people up here are socialistic, idiotic moonbats.
