The way this was reported was that “Obama increases lead in MA” in my local Springfield paper. of course this makes no sense as their man was just obliterated in the debate. I think the poll was done at WNEC (local college) and the data is probably old and irrelevant.

I am a realist, I worry too and will continue to worry until this nightmare over, but I do believe Romney is going to win.

Romney is going to win....

This is pre-debate. I know Massachusetts in the capital of moonbattery, but Obama will not win by 30 on November 6. Probably more like half that. election.

IIRC, MA was the only state won by George McGovern.

I don’t believe it. I spend considerable time in both SE Mass and the Berkshires, I see very few Zero signs. In fact I see very few yard signs at all. Though I don’t doubt Zero will win, the number cited for those supporting Lieawatha really show me how bogus the numbers are. I think Scott Brown will win. The Senate race and the chance to vote against Kennedy spawn are the real reason to go to the poll, for me.

My top 5 moonbat towns: North Hampton, Provincetown, Cambridge, Newton and Somerville... the real people live in towns like Dracut, Leominster, Hopkington will vote for Mitt and Scott ... there are more towns that will come in for the Republicans, but the Liberal towns are overwhelmingly so.

I agree, it doesn’t pass the smell test. Dem Presidential candidates in MA max out in the 59-62% range. Gore got 59.8% in 2000, Zero got 61.8% in 2008... even Kerry only got 1/10th of a point higher than Zero... 61.9% in 2004. Zero will not get higher than what he got in ‘08. At best, he might get somewhere in the 55-58% range. In fact, if he gets 55%, that means Willard will win nationally. Willard will probably get to the low 40s in MA, which will be the highest % for a Republican since GHW Bush in 1988 (when Dukakis won by a paltry 53-45%).

Does anyone want the votes of people who kept electing a drunk - a drunk who killed a woman? Killed her, walked away from her while she was drowning? - Then the idiots in Massachusetts declared the drunk a tragic hero? Something's wrong with those people ... they're creepy.Who cares how they vote...

Ditto.

I can see the Glovemeister getting into the low 40’s and that will be an idicator for the rest the nation.

The internals of the partisan breakdown are here.

The sampling was 38.63D, 12.95R and 46.13I. The total party identification adds up to 430 and not the 440 shown on the table. Interesting, party intensity as measured even by this very poor sampling shows Republicans with a 18% advantage.

The Western New England University Polling Institute survey consists of telephone interviews with 567 adults ages 18 and older drawn from across Massachusetts using random-digit-dialing Sept. 28 – Oct. 4, 2012. The sample yielded 516 adults who said they are registered to vote in Massachusetts, and 440 adults who are classified as likely to vote in the Nov. 6, 2012 general election. Unless otherwise noted, the figures in this release are based on the statewide sample of likely voters. The Polling Institute classified likely voters based on voters’ responses to questions about interest in the election, likelihood of voting in the election, ability to identify their polling place, and whether they reported voting in the 2008 presidential election.

Check out my post 65. They surveyed only 57 self-described Republicans. This survey was primarily about Scott Brown, however the results would tend to indicate problems for Obama even in Massachusetts.

“...however the results would tend to indicate problems for Obama even in Massachusetts.”

Yep.

If MA and/or CT are (relatively) close, then Team Glove will win states like WI, MI and possibly PA by wide enough margins that even Uncle Joe's very own vote counters would't be able to pull out.

Personally, I don't believe the poll.

Romney was elected Governor after all so a very different circumstance. And remember, Massachusetts is/was Kennedy territory.

I grew up in Newton which is an upper middle class to wealthy city. I think there must be something in the tap water.

this is LITERALLY right out of campaign managment school.

find a trend ANY TREND where you candidate leads and promote it as momentum.

in this case left leaning mass and show an overwhelming lead to imply an inevitability trend.

now it is all GOTV. we have to email. we have to talk. order absentee ballots. Help people vote against obama.

I wish I knew how to link radio commercials.

Obama’s recent radio commercial was basically saying vote obama to protect homosexual marriage, repeal of DADT, abortion/birthcontrol, AND PREVENT romney supported federal marriage amendment (and even states he does not support civil unions.)

all i could think was “this is supposed to help obama?”

  3. Amherst
  4. Provincetown
  5. Wendell
  6. Shutesbury
  7. Leverett
  8. Pelham
  9. Northampton
  10. Great Barrington
  11. West Tisbury
  12. Somerville

You can see the whole list (copied from boston.com) here.

New Hampshire. They need to win NH. The election could be close and those EVs could matter. The Boston market reaches into NH. Radio ads for Romney running on Bos. stations:
“Things are really looking up for Obama here in New
Hampshire. Things like, unemployment. Gas prices...”

It’s to reach NH

Or should I say, “Thanks to Obama, things are really looking up here in NH” is how the GOP ad phrases it (Gas prices.
Unemployment...)

I work for post office and see Brown, Romney bumper stickers on cars in lot....Big Tisei sign nearby.

On the North Shore “if signs could vote” it’s Tisei all the way at least in some places like N Reading, Lynnfield,
Beverly, etc—fairly well to do towns but Gloucester and Rockport were Tierney/Obama/Warren to the max. Some cities like Lynn will probably go heavily Dem. Last time Hudak
who ran against Tierney had tons of signs..gave him a challenge but still lost. Tierney got signs up late
and people tended to ignore the Tierney/Eremian Crime
Family Scandal.

Labor etc. (teachers and so forth) go Dem but who knows.
And the “(non)-working family” vote (EBT cards)

Could 3rd party Libertarian candidate swing race to Tierney? Salem News:

>>However, Fishman is getting some push-back from conservatives who view his candidacy as a threat to Tisei. Both are socially liberal and fiscally conservative, and conventional wisdom for many suggests that Fishman stands to do more harm to Tisei than to his Democratic opponent.
“I don’t know who would support Tierney at this point; I guess it’s union people, and I can’t imagine any of them supporting Fishman,” said Barbara Anderson, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, a conservative group based in Marblehead.
Although Anderson counts herself as a Libertarian, she wishes Fishman had stayed out of the race.
