    While all national attention is focused — indeed riveted — on the seven to nine swing or battleground states, a major shift is taking place in the rest of the country: Voters are turning off Obama and onto Romney. In the forty states where the Obama campaign has not spread toxic negative ads against Romney, the Republican is gaining by leaps and bounds and will likely carry a bunch of “non-swing” normally blue states. Specifically, Romney is now three points ahead in Pennsylvania, one point behind in Michigan, and only two points behind in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Together, these four...

    Tuesday, October 30, 2012 Four years after backing Obama, The Telegraph endorses Mitt Romney for president By ERIN PLACE Staff Writer HUDSON – Four years after endorsing then-Sen. Barack Obama for president, The Telegraph of Nashua has backed the president’s Republican opponent former Gov. Mitt Romney. The newspaper’s editorial board said it did not come to this decision lightly. In Wednesday’s editorial on the endorsement of the former Massachusetts governor, it is revealed there were “several hours of spirited debate” regarding the endorsement. In January, The Telegraph endorsed Romney as the GOP candidate.
  • Early Vote in Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, New Hampshire and Wisconsin

    It's well known that Ohio is the key, and that Ohio state polls seem not to follow the national trend (Romney should be leading by at least 3-4, no polls showing him better than tie instead). RCP average in 2008 missed the real result in many states by several points (2.1 in Ohio, 2.5 in Indiana, 3 in Pennsylvania, 3.5 in Colorado, 5 in Arizona e 6 in Nevada) so maybe it's just due to the margin of error but it's worrying anyway. Anyway if Romney loses Ohio he has to win Colorado, Iowa, Wisconsin and New Hampshire (if he...

    New from Rasmussen, itÂ’s the second poll in as many days showing Romney up two points in NH. Of the last eight polls taken in the state, he leads in four, is tied in two more, trails by a single point in another, and the last is an outlier. (RasmussenÂ’s last poll of NH, taken eight days ago, had Obama up by a point.) Why should you care about that? Simple: If Ohio doesnÂ’t pan out for Mitt, his lone remaining path to the presidency may well be hitting an exacta with New Hampshire and Wisconsin. If he wins Florida,...

    Anxious to find the right combination of states to win the Electoral College, Mitt Romney’s campaign pushed Saturday into battlegrounds it had largely avoided. The Republicans forged into the swing states of Pennsylvania and New Hampshire, which the GOP had previously appeared resigned to ceding to President Obama. Paul Ryan, Romney’s running mate, ripped Obama’s energy policy to a crowd at the Pittsburgh International Airport. "Gas prices are more than double what they were four years ago - who knows what they're going to be if he got four more years," Ryan said. "Not only are these policies wrong, they...cost...

    Yes, yes, I know, this comes from Kos’s pollster. What can I say? If the left can cling bitterly to Rasmussen as a bulwark against terrible numbers from Gallup, I can cling to this. RCP’s average already had New Hampshire within a point so the new PPP number there isn’t news. The Iowa number is. This is the first poll in a month showing Romney ahead in the state, notwithstanding his blockbuster debate two weeks ago. NBC’s poll last night, in fact, had O up by eight points in Iowa, a ridiculous figure given that Obama’s worried enough to have...

Plouffe said that Obama remains strong in all four states, but he would not discuss the specifics of internal polling or voter-contact analytics, saying only that Obama has “significant leads” in all four places. It is uncharacteristic of Team Obama to concede any terrain, but Plouffe offered no such assurances about Obama’s position in North Carolina, Virginia, or Florida. Romney advisers have seen big gains in all three states and now consider wins likely,...

    A school board member in one New Hampshire city is looking to bring an end to the high school's football program. In a meeting on Monday, Paul Butler, a retired physician and member of the Dover School Board, claimed that trying to stop football both at the high school and throughout Dover was the "moral" and "ethical" thing to do in light of recent studies on the sport's impact on overall health and well-being. Butler reportedly cited literature that draws a connection between concussions incurred during football and long-term cognitive impacts in his argument. The former physician also claims that...

    A Belknap County Superior Court jury cleared a Barnstead resident of a felony drug charge last week, siding with a defense lawyer who encouraged the jury to nullify the verdict on the grounds that the marijuana use was part of his Rastafarian religion. The decision on Thursday cleared Doug Darrell, 59, a piano tuner and woodworker, of manufacture of marijuana, a Class B felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of 3 1/2 to seven years. Under the principle of jury nullification, a jury can find a defendant innocent, even if prosecutors have proved guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. “It's...

His campaign largely stayed off of television during the Democratic National Convention, which concluded after Obama's speech on Thursday. --snip-- Now that Romney has officially been named the GOP nominee his campaign will get its hands on...

No one's quite sure when the safe was last opened, but the town's administrator and selectmen were determined to end the mystery of its contents. So they hired a safecracker, Seacoast Lock and Safe owner Paul Letourneau. Letourneau says it took him three hours Thursday to drill through and reset the combination of the safe. "On a scale of 1-10, it was probably a seven," Letourneau said. The safe was immediately closed and relocked so...

Romney is masquerading as a limited-government, free-market executive from next-door Massachusetts. From the Golden Gate to the Granite State, voters should greet Romney's impersonation with a quarry full of skepticism. In fact, Romney increased taxes by $309 million, mainly on corporations. These tax hikes, described by Romney apologists as loophole closures, totaled $128 million in 2003, $95.5 in 2004, and $85 million in 2005. That final year, Romney proposed $170 million in higher business taxes, the Boston Globe reports. However,...

    Afghan helicopter deal to be ended if Russia continues to arm Assad's Syria Washington, USA - Senators against this purchase due to Moscow's ambiguous policy (WAPA) - Despite Russia sent humanitarian aids to Syria its role in the tragic situation the Country is living is still ambiguous. In fact, 17 US' senators have sent a statement to Pentagon declaring the US' Department of Defense should drop a 900 million dollars contract to supply a Russian Mi-17 helicopter fleet to Afghanistan, since Moscow seems to be arming the regular Syrian Army, led by president Bashar al-Assad. John Cornyn, US senator, also...

    “U.S. taxpayers should not be put in a position where they are indirectly subsidizing the mass murder of Syrian civilians,” wrote the senators, led by Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.). "We urge you to use all available leverage to press Russia and Russian entities to end their support of the Assad regime, and that includes ending all DoD business dealings with Rosoboronexport, which is within your authority as Secretary of Defense,” they wrote. “Continuing this robust business relationship with Rosoboronexport would undermine U.S. policy on Syria and undermine U.S. efforts to...

    A bill that would repeal New Hampshire's same-sex marriage law appears likely to pass through the state's House and Senate, but it is unclear if the legislation has enough support to overturn a veto from the governor. New Hampshire passed a bill allowing same-sex civil unions in 2007, which were then converted to same-sex marriages by another bill passed in 2009. The second bill officially allowed new same-sex marriages in the state beginning on Jan. 1, 2011. However, in 2010 Republicans took control of both the state House and Senate, significantly shifting the legislature's opinion on the same-sex marriage issue....

    In New Hampshire, the state motto "Live Free or Die" is more of a way of life than just a slogan. But despite the push of some in the Granite State to place "warning" signs on roads that lead to a border with Massachusetts, the bill was voted down in the New Hampshire House of Representatives on Wednesday in a 285-18 vote. The signs, which would have said "Warning: Massachusetts Border 500 Feet," were proposed in an effort to warn residents that they were about to enter the Bay State, which has different laws regarding seatbelts, helmets, guns, knives, fireworks,...

    Rick Santorum said he would be pleased with a third-place finish in South Carolina Saturday but vowed to stay in the presidential race through the Florida primary no matter what.

    In July of 2011, New Hampshire governor John Lynch vetoed a bill that would have required New Hampshire voters to show photo ID before entering the polls. “Voter turnout in New Hampshire is among the highest in the nation, election after election. There is no voter fraud problem in New Hampshire,” said Governor Lynch in a statement last summer. “We already have strong election laws that are effective in regulating our elections.” Not surprisingly, the governor was outraged last week when a watchdog group, Project Veritas, organized an undercover sting operation to test the veracity of his reassurances. What they...
