Skip to comments.Suffolk-Herald poll: Romney is early favorite in N.H. 2016 GOP primary
Posted on 06/19/2014 1:33:25 PM PDT by detective
The surprise early frontrunner in New Hampshires 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.

And it looks like he is leading in the early polls.
And the pissant state of New Hampshire is relevant, why?
Well, he won’t get my vote this time. Not that it matters ‘cause I’m stuck on Massachusetts.
He should try the Democrat side this time
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.
Hmmmm, perhaps I won’t have to bother to vote after all.
This is so exciting! Is Harold Stassen available for VP???
I am starting to think he’s going to run, again. Groundhog day.....
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.
Red Hampshire speaks again!
what is wrong with this picture?
a regurgitated Romney?
another Bush?—even though we haven’t dealt
with this one. no dynasties please.
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?
That dog won’t hunt, Mitt. Please go do something else now.
Still though, it’s the brain-dead states that follow Red Hampshire who add to the problem.
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?
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
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.
You have got to be kidding me
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.
That needs to change.
Wait I’m confused. Didn’t Romney just lose a Presidential election to the most incompetent sitting President we have had in a century?
This is the best the GOPe can do?
The last time NH actually did so was 14 years ago.
“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.”
I agree. States that actually vote Republican in the election should have a greater role in choosing the candidate.
You were right...ANYTHING would be better than what we have now!
I’m convinced Romney is going to win in 2016 to complete the “end of times”.
My dream ticket is Palin/West.
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.
This is the best the GOPe can do?
You’re expecting the Stupid Party to all of a sudden do something smart???? Probably a bridge too far, or a bridge to nowhere. Take your pick. ;)
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.
In an interview with the Boston Globe, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romneys 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 Ive 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?
There is no evidence that Einstein said that. First incidence was in Rita Mae Brown’s novel Sudden Death.
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.
No CULT GROUP MEMBER is going to get my vote!
FUMR!! Amnesty pimps need not apply!!
Romney doomed the country when he ran last time!
Don’t call it “New” Hampshire, it’s Red all over.
Natives displeased with carpetbaggers from Massachusetts and New York have made references to ‘those communist SOB’s’ for some time...hence, Red Hampshire.
Proof that there are just as many brain dead republicans as there are democrats.
This is like going to a restaurant and you getting a bad meal. You packing up the leftovers, bring them home and leaving them in the back of the frig for a week. Now you heat up the leftovers and eat them.
Ok, maybe not Albert...
but GIGO is still true.
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.
proJudges issuing Deathwarrrants.
The GOP is the enemy of America.
He’s got to run so he can help Hillary get elected.
