I guess we have a whole new definition of “Tea Party” — “LIBERAL DEMOCRAT”

NH Tea-Party = RINO’s.

There is no Tea-party in NH, just RINO’s

We had a fake tea party pop up here in Michigan. It might be worth getting some background on the leadership there.

It’s a Boston Globe poll so Romney would have been favored no matter what the people actually stated as their preference.

New Hampshire has been turning into New Massachusetts for many years now. It’s a shame what that once fine state has become.

That poll is suspect.

Tea Party supporters? How was that determined? Why not ‘members’ of the Tea Party?

Any good polling agency could find ample pollees to be ‘Tea Party supporters’ without them actually being Tea Party members.

The Romneys are cowards and snake oil salesmen.

Its unconscionable that they en mass have forsworn fighting this nations foreign wars, and he should be disqualified for national office based on that alone.

His father didnt serve either, and the rest of the clan were busy hiding in Mexico where they could practice muslim style polygamy.

He has also taken a firm stand against illegal immigration, which is somewhat ironic, as the evidence suggests that Romney's own grandfather came to America as an illegal immigrant.

His great-grandfather, a devout Mormon in a time when his church encouraged polygamy, fled the US with his multiple wives in 1884, when American law could strip polygamists of the right to vote or serve on juries.

Romney's grandfather and father were born and raised in Mexico, and Romney's father was a child when his family left Mexico at the height of the Mexican Revolution, in 1912. Romney's father's and grandmother were American citizens under the law at that time, and came to America on a train, while his grandfather crossed the border northward in classic "illegal immigrant" fashion, entering US territory on a long walk over barren desert land.

No I simply don’t buy it. This is the MSM pushing the man they want to have the Dems beat in 2012. No way Romney is the Repub candidate. No way the Tea Party is going to get behind a RINO.

Coulter: Nominate Christie, because Romney will lose

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/143697-coulter-nominate-christie-because-romney-will-lose

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter warned activists Saturday that if the party nominates former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in 2012, President Obama will win reelection.

“If you don’t run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and we’ll lose,” said Coulter, eliciting cheers from the crowd.

“By the way,” she added, “I warned you about McCain.”

As you well know, George Romney’s parents were both natural born American citizens. George was born to them in Mexico, and thus is also a natural born citizen under our law. George Romney was a great businessman and patriot. He turned around a struggling auto company and served his country with distinction. I may not vote for Mitt Romney in the primaries, but I believe he is also a good American. If he does win the nomination, I will vote for him in a hot minute over Obama.

I just think that someone needs to respond to what you’re posting with an alternative — and conservative — view.

You are probably correct that Romney is unelectable.

But, that doesn't stop the GOP from nominating him. And that is the problem. Many of us knew McCain was unelectable. I even posted that in February 2008, long before he even got the nomination.

The GOP has done stupid before, and they are likely to do it again and again.

This is the same stinking FAKE Poll posted yesterday on three different threads with the same stinking lousy internals.

My post from One of Three posts of the same poll yesterday!

Some internals:

The poll of 757 randomly selected New Hampshire adults was conducted from Jan. 28 through Feb. 7 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The poll includes a subsample of 357 likely Republican voters that has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5.2 percentage points.

There is no potential Democratic challenger for President Barack Obama, but just 65 percent of likely Democratic primary voters said they plan to vote for Obama, and 27 percent are undecided. The subsample of 259 likely Democratic primary voters has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 6.1 percent.


"The numbers do not add up from previous samples of likely voters in the general population. Less "likely" Democratic voters there are 498 from the pool of "randomly selected New Hampshire adult". This includes not likely to vote Democrats, Independents and Republicans. Subtracting "likely" Republican voters we are left with 141 voters. These voters equal %18.6 of the total sample size."

"I'm not buying it. This is a fraudulent poll to create the news rather than to report it."

"It is time for everyone to start posting the stinking internals from these supposed "polls". The media is creating the news and the echo chambers of the left and many here keep repeating them!"

this deep, deep, deep blus state is a huge factor in picking our nominee.

What exactly constitutes a deep, deep, deep blue state to you?

Republican won Senatorial race in 2010 by 5.5%
Demonrat won Gubernatorial race in 2010 by 7.6%
Approximately 456,000 voted in the 2010 races.

New Hampshire 2008 Population: 1,315,809 Est.
Around 711,000 voted in 2008 - McCain lost by 68,000+

New Hampshire 2004 Population: 1,297,961 Est.
Around 678,000 voted in 2004 - President Bush lost by 9,000

NH flipped red big time this last election. More than any other state. On the fed level, we elected Repubs for U.S. Senator, and both Congress seats. On state level, we won 300 of 400 House seats, all five Executive Council seats, and 19 of 24 state Senate seats.

That is not deep blue.

This poll is bogus.

Ok, fair points. I just can’t shake my feeling that it’s liberal when I see who won the state the last two generals elections. That whole northeast blue blob on the map, you know?

I’m a northeasterner so don’t get me wrong, it’s one of the most beautiful parts of the country. It bugs me that Mitt does have it sown up, and he really does. Mitt will very likely win NH.

How many times do I have to tell you what color NH went on election night 2004, 2008? Duh....That`s exactly where and when the modern definition of blue and red states comes from! How many people on FR do you think would call NH a red state? Very few, maybe you and that other guy. Those are the little facts that you are blind too. Are McCain and Romney conservative to you? You’re right, we have very different ideas of what constitutes blue and red states. You are wrong and I am right and it really bothers you.

Repeat after me: ``New Hampshire is a blue state.`` There, I know you said it to yourself when no one was watching. Lol.

Stop with the condescending BS!

I posted the actual numbers for the '04 and '08 elections. No, I DO NOT consider a 1.3% loss relegating a state to permanent deep, deep, deep blue status.
Also, I always figure in the rat vote fraud factor. And '08? One word ... MCCAIN! He would have lost by 20% if not for Sarah!

You went from stating NH was a deep, deep, deep blue state, to saying they are a very deep blue state, to claiming I said they are a red state. Do you live in NH? Do you know anyone in NH? Have you ever spent any time in NH? A resident of NH provided you with actual stats on the recent election and you still return with your know-it-all BS!

Let.me.speak.very.slowly.for.you.since.you.must.be.drunk.or.a.lib.

The.only.point.I.tried.to.make.is.that.NH.is.NOT.a.deep.deep.deep.blue.state.or.a.very.deep.blue.state.they.are.simply.a.blue.state.at.this.time.

Moving the goal posts and claiming victory is a lib tactic and does not make you superior or right.

Dismissed!

Romney
McCain
Obama (!)
Kerry (!)
