Skip to comments.President Barack Obama holds 30-point lead over Republican Mitt Romney in Massachusetts, poll finds
Posted on 10/08/2012 1:38:59 PM PDT by matt04
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.
You can't fix stupid.
I call BS in MA.
I worry he will win just like Chavez ‘won’ today
Obama 62%, McCain 36%
Obama is going to lose the election in 29 days.
I envy your confidence....I still worry about voter fraud. The libs. play dirty.
It’s kinda a bad joke that Gore didn’t need Florida. All he had to do was win his home state.
Nothing happening in that reeking cesspool surprises me.
It’s not surprising.
They also like Barney Frank, they kept electing the murderer Ted Kennedy. Now they have a fake indian running.
They also have the traitor John Kerry and they love the band-aid hero.
Massachusetts has some weird voters, and even more weird politicians.
I live in Massachusetts. A 30 point Obama victory here is simply not going to happen and you can take that to the bank. Bookmark this thread and ping me on November 7th!
I live in a heavily Democratic city. They even voted against Tisei after he got us funding for five new schools. Most of the members of my club are Democrats. Two are vocal for Obama. Everyone else EVEN THE POST OFFICE GUYS are quietly voting for Romney. I have not seen one Obama sign. But I have been seeing more “I’m Catholic and I Vote” bumper stickers.
I've seen a lot more signs for the Senate race, where Brown is soundly beating Lieawatha. The Brown signs tend to turn up in the more middle class neighborhoods, whereas the Lieawatha signs are more likely to be found in more upscale neighborhoods, e.g., at this place, Zestimated to be worth $2,853,530.
My bet is Obama will get a lot of Massachusetts's one-percenters, and Romney will take a surprising share of the 47 percent.
I looked up the average on party affiliation in Mass.
Generally it is 35% dem 12% republican 53% independent/other
Of the 516 polled only 440 were likely voters
of thos 440 likely voters the breakdown was D170/R57/I203
I am not very good at figuring percentages but even just eyeballing this, it seems quite skewed towards the dems.
When you look at how heavily the Independent voters are breaking it seems these results are highly suspect. Take a look:
Massachusetts voters are Democrat zombies when it comes to Presidential politics. Zombies.
I noticed an interesting trend around my house in FL. Yards with Romney signs have other republican candidates as well or just Romney.
Yards with signs for Democrat candidates often don’t have Obama signs. It’s like they are embarrassed to admit they like the guy. I see Obama signs in random spots along the road, but not in yards too much.
Obama 62%, McCain 36%
You are correct.
Barney Frank won 68-25
I grew up in Newton, Mass. You have to have lived there to appreciate how twisted these people are. There is no possible way to use the printed word to describe it.
“I envy your confidence....I still worry about voter fraud. The libs. play dirty.”
In other news, Obama leads in polling of deceased voters.
One of the reasons I left The Commonwealth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
” One of the reasons I left The Commonwealth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
One of the happiest days of my life.
And I thought Minnesota was bad...
Same in the parts of MA I travel in. Most Warren sigs are without matching Obama signs. The one exception I found was a area with a descent Jewish population.
Agreed. Even CT will be closer then they are letting on.
Honest to God, except for my Harvard educated daughter in law, everyone I talk to despises O. Don’t get me wrong O has massive support from lots of areas and I could probably name each one of them.
I’m not a big Brown fan but to vote for Warren is unthinkable. I think that contest is going to be a squeaker.
I predicted if Glove keeps it within 15%, look for a national blowout.
Also, I was up in the North Shore today and the Tisei signs conservatively outnumbered the Tierney signs by a 5:1 margin. The Brown signs outnumbered the Warren signs by a 3:1 margin and the Romney signs outnumbered the Obama signs 2/3:1. Forgetting the “dude loves dong” angle and I think Tisei is going to win the seat (no pun intended). My relatives in the district are voting for her; the gambling/unreported cash allegations against Tierney, especially in this economy, are going to finish him off.
So Romney actually trailing the McCain margin in this state!
Ya think? Sure says a whole lot about the State of Massachusetts (poor lost bubble-wrapped souls).
Really???? If this is true, why is Zero inundating the Boston TV market with ads on every channel from 5AM until Midnight? He slams every newscast with multiple ads. He has been on nonstop for 2 months now. If this story was true, he wouldn’t have to spend a dime here. I think they are scared they may loose here. If he looses Massachusetts, it will be a early night and Zero better call the movers.
BS. I live in Moonbatchusetts.
In 2008, Zero signs and stickers were everywhere. Now, they’re non-existant, except in five of the Moonbattiest towns. Until the debate, Romney signs were equally rare.
But this weekend, the Romney signs and stickers started coming out.
I give Zero a five point victory. Max.
