Suffolk-Herald poll: Romney is early favorite in N.H. 2016 GOP primary
The Boston Herald ^ | June 19, 2014 | Joe Battenfield

Posted on 06/19/2014 1:33:25 PM PDT by detective

The surprise early frontrunner in New Hampshire’s next GOP presidential primary is the loser of the last White House race – former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who wipes the 2016 field by a more than 2-1 margin, a new Suffolk University-Boston Herald poll reveals.

The poll of 800 likely Granite State voters has less encouraging news for another ex-Massachusetts politician, former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown. He trails incumbent Democrat Jeanne Shaheen by 10 points and is now viewed unfavorably by 46 percent of New Hampshire voters.

It looks like Mr. Etch-a-sketch is going to run again for the Republican nomination.

And it looks like he is leading in the early polls.

Well, he won’t get my vote this time. Not that it matters ‘cause I’m stuck on Massachusetts.

Hillary will beat anyone except Sarah Palin. She’ll get
the “it’s about time we had a woman president” vote from both sides. My dream ticket is Palin/West. There must be a military veteran on the ticket.

LOOOOOOOONG past time we remove this ‘drunkest state in the Nation’ from its position as a ‘first in the nation’ primary state. We are TIRED of allowing a state with an OPEN PRIMARY to set the table for the rest of us.

Message for Mitt - OK I voted for you but you can’t win next time either. Put your money behind Sarah Palin and hope for a spot on the cabinet maybe in the treasury department. Or an economic advisor. You can help the country that way and probably be very successful.

I think Romney would be infinitely better than the current Balloon Head in Chief.

Since that election, every time Romney opens his mouth, he convinces us that Jeb is a better nominee...which would bring tears to my eyes.

Why won't they both just go away?

Yep...or run as a Rebulicrat.

Oh wait...he ran like that last time.

IF Romney is the Pubbie candidate...this country is totally doomed...If it's not already.

If Mitt had any understanding about what is happening in America...he would step aside...use his money to elect someone that CAN win..and LEAD!!

What would it take to revamp the whole process? Why don't 3 or 4 Southern and red states schedule primaries same day as NH and the stupid Iowa caucus that so excites the media?

I voted for Romney in 2012, because I believed anything was better than 4 more years of Obama. But he wasn’t “my guy” then, and we sure as heck have better options for 2016.

"And the pissant state of New Hampshire is relevant, why?"

Because it is the first primary in the nation and because candidates and the media spend more time and money there than any other primary state. The Iowa Caucus is relevant for the same reason.

No question. But once the 'rigged against conservatives' Red Hampshire election results spawn yet another RINO, the media trumpets them as the best thing since sliced bread, and we suffer thru another long primary season with dismal results.

If the GOP had any brains, only about 25% of the delegates would be awarded based on the state's electoral votes. The remaining 75% would be awarded based on the ability of the state to elect the GOP to statewide office and deliver electoral votes in November.

The last time NH actually did so was 14 years ago.

I agree. States that actually vote Republican in the election should have a greater role in choosing the candidate.

If West doesn’t make it on the Republican ticket, at least give him the Department of Defense. He’d get the politicized DoD back on the right track.

Same for Bolton who should be Secretary of State. He’d restore gravitas, dignity and respect back into the disaster that is now U.S. foreign policy.

Let’s not get our undies in too big a wad just yet. Twenty-four percent in what should be a favorite son poll isn’t very impressive. Romney has the name recognition being the 2012 nominee and having served as governor in the largest state in the region. I don’t see this as a sign of strength at all.

Does anybody remember this?

In an interview with the Boston Globe, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney’s son Tagg described his father as reluctant to run for the presidency and hesitant to reveal his personal side during the long campaign.

“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to … run,” said Tagg, according to the report.

And this is someone we should get behind, why?

The GOP-E ruling class was hoping to nominate a ticket of Thurston Howell and Chatsworth Worthington XXXII But Mr. Howell and his wife are still stuck on that island, shipwrecked with that peasant Gilligan, the captain, the professor and those two girls. Meanwhile, Mr. Worthington could not be found even by Dobie Gillis or Maynard.

So, it is another go round with the malicious King of Snore and father of Romneycare and grandfather of Obozocare, a true POS, and his Wall Street and K Street boodlers.

He would be decimated in a debate by any of the conservative young turks in congress.

I've never been so embarrassed for a candidate as I was when Candy "check the transcript" Crowley set him up in the debate with a complete lie and his "team" hadn't even prepped him to be able to respond.

The poll of 800 likely Granite State voters
______________________________________

Republican maybe but not Conservative..

who else was in the poll...

was Palin, Cruz, Paul, anyone else listed or is this just another shameless fluff piece from Willard himself...

What was the question “are you likely to vote for someone else if Willard is on the ballot ?”

and 794 people said yes..

Willard and his 5 loser boys all said No...

Thus the poll comes out Yes and they add Willard’s name...

The question that is asked by the pollster and the question that we see later do not have to be the same thing or slanted the same way...

Romney/Bush for 2016.

They TRULY define the GOP.
Gay Marriage.
Open Borders.
Backstabbing.
proObamaCARE.
proPolygamy
proJudges issuing Deathwarrrants.
Statism.
proIslam.

The GOP is the enemy of America.
