Skip to comments.President Barack Obama holds 30-point lead over Republican Mitt Romney in Massachusetts, poll finds

Democratic President Barack Obamas lead over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is growing in Massachusetts, and is now up to 30 points, according to a new poll conducted by the Western New England University Polling Institute for The Republican and MassLive.com.
The poll, conducted Sept. 28 - Oct. 4, finds Obama getting support from 63 percent of likely Massachusetts voters compared to 33 percent for Romney, with 3 percent undecided. The poll does not take into account the impact of the first presidential debate - in which Romney was widely viewed as the winner - since only one night of polling was done after that.
The results are not surprising. Though Romney is the former Massachusetts governor, he has consistently trailed Obama by double digits in his liberal-leaning home state. The bigger question is how the presidential race will affect the tight U.S. Senate race between Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic Harvard Law School professor Elizabeth Warren. The poll suggests that Obamas growing lead does not necessarily give Warren an advantage. Since the last poll conducted for The Republican and MassLive.com on Sept. 6-13, Brown has actually picked up more Obama supporters than Warren has.
Warren is now getting support from 76 percent of likely voters who lean toward Obama, compared to 77 percent in September. Brown is getting support from 18 percent of Obama supporters, compared to 14 percent in September. (In both polls, Brown has gotten support from more than 90 percent of Romney supporters.)

The contacts were made using obamaphones!!
The poll was conducted before the debate. Watch for that number for Obama to go down- even if it is Massachusetts.
30 poins is hard to believe....even for Mass.
Another poll finds: Water is wet. Fire is hot. Ice is cold.
30 points? Pure BS. If CT is in play, then it’s much closer than 30 pts. in MA.
Obama is going to lose the election in 29 days.
Wouldn’t be surprised it that was true.
No way Obama doesn’t win by a massive landslide in my benighted Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
I’m only bothering to vote just because I want to see Scott Brown beat Elizabeth Warren, even though Brown is appalling to me. Still, we’ll need him to caucus with the Republicans.
Meanwhile in DC obama holds a 115% lead, among likely democrat voters.
What was 08?
This past weekend, at a neighborhood BBQ, I conducted MyPoll.
16 likely voters in attendance. 3 democrats and 13 republicans.
Figured it was as good as most of the national polls....
Bull Squat!! Those numbers are so overcooked they're inedible!!
Even for a Lib stte like Massachusetts, those are absurd numbers that make ALL polls look like caricatures.
Cannot believe - so may fools...
Want better news...... ?
Romney could be the first president since Woodrow Wilson to win the election but lose his home state.
Collective IQ of “6”
I frequently travel in western MA, mostly in the 91 corridor as far as Holyoke and as far out as Westfied, Londmeadow and Hampden. Obama yard signs are almost non-existent. A few scattered around, easily outnumbered by Romney signs.
The only exception I have found is Jewish areas. They are really drinking the Obama/Warren kool-aid.
In the land of Jabba the Kennady there is just pirates and vagabonds.. and many drones..
This HIVE of miscreants is aggressive and parasitic..
To do well there you must have negative qualities..
What about Myth Romney..?..
Well that why they call him MYTH?... pay attention..
You can't fix stupid.
