    Three reasons why: Economy, economy, economy. Supposedly, the model’s been accurate to within 20 or so electoral votes in every election since 1980. Dude? Using a state-by-state analysis of unemployment and per-capita income, academics Kenneth Bickers and Michael Berry of the University of Colorado project that Romney will win 52.9% of the popular vote and 320 electoral votes. The political scientists discuss their findings here. Their forecast suggests that President Obama will lose in almost all of the swing states, including North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida… Bickers said much of the polling thus...

    The Concord Monitor ^ | August 15, 2012 | Jane Hunt, Democratic candidate for state representative
    Not only is it refreshing and encouraging to hear from young writers, it's also a pleasure to be able to agree with Lizy Swain's defense of Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy's right to free speech (Monitor Forum, Aug. 7). She knows her Constitution: We don't have to agree with Cathy's opinions to affirm his right to hold and express them. Swain's also right that Cathy's opinion need not affect those who eat at, or boycott, Chick-fil-A. Where's she's wrong, though, is in assuming that customers are Chick-fil-A's sole concern. Chick-fil-A also employs more than 850 corporate workers. Statistically speaking, some 68-to-85...

    States that traditionally have been considered Democrat strongholds are now moving toward Mitt Romney, Bay Buchanan, a senior adviser to Romney, tells Newsmax. “When we came into this general election, it was assumed that the battleground states would be the same ones that they were in the past,” says Buchanan, who was treasurer of the U.S. under President Reagan. “Well what’s happened is a lot of the Democratic states are now looking like Mitt Romney could win them. They are now swing states.” That means that Democrats have to focus on an additional five states: New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and...

    New Hampshire police departments that have tapped into national grant programs to help pay for personnel and equipment that town budgets don’t cover are finding less support as federal agencies rein in spending. Those who’ve opposed the use of these grants would argue that’s for the best. The U.S. Dept. of Justice Community Orientated Policing Services (COPS) grants, which cover most of the cost of hiring new police officers, have been cut by more than 50 percent. And grants from the Dept. of Homeland Security that pay for training and equipment such as armored vehicles, surveillance cameras, radios, protective clothing...

If any of these five House incumbents survive, it will surprise most dispassionate observers (including some in their own parties). But upsets happen, and each of these candidates has a scenario for victory. Moments after Bass was declared the winner in November 2010, most political insiders figured he would be doomed in 2012.

    Not too long ago pundits were arguing that Mitt Romney’s path to 270 electoral votes was “narrow.” We didn’t buy it. Lo and behold, conventional wisdom has now changed. The Associated Press writes: “Warning signs for Obama on tight path to 270.” The AP explains: Obama’s new worries about North Carolina and Wisconsin offer opportunities for Republican Mitt Romney, who must peel off states Obama won in 2008 if he’s to cobble together the 270 electoral votes needed to oust the incumbent in November. Iowa, which kicked off the campaign in January, is now expected to be tight to the...

Florida (29) — Florida is the prime target for both campaigns. Obama won in 2008, but the housing crisis, high unemployment and gas prices are dogging him. Romney won the primary in January and has picked up the endorsement of GOP Sen. Marco Rubio. Obama's organization has a large advantage. Iowa (6)...

Biden showed the audience the Obama campaigns chart of job growth during the President's first term in office and accused the Tea Party for stalling the recovery, because of the debt limit fight. "Imagine where we'd be if the Tea Party hadn't taken control of the House of Representatives," Biden said adding that they were "a group set on obstructionism."

    Milton is a small New Hampshire town that knows how to safeguard its secrets -- namely by losing the combination to one very large safe. 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...

    Hot on the heels of his eight-vote Iowa-caucus landslide, Willard Mitt Romney is crisscrossing New Hampshire before Tuesday's key primary. 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,...

    Christian Post ^ | 03/04/2012 | By Jonathan Moormann
    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....

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,...

Romney is the first Republican, not including incumbent presidents, to win both the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary since Iowa Republicans began holding their first-in-the-nation caucuses in 1976. Ron Paul came in second; Jon Huntsman in third. It was a start-to-finish victory for Romney in New Hampshire, who led in the polls here throughout the 2012 campaign.

    The gloves have come off by the other candidates now in response to all of the mudslinging being done at the hands of the Romney and Paul campaigns so the New Hampshire Primary is proving to be a little more contested than originally thought and is proving that it may not be the coronation that Mitt Romney expects. I came fairly close with my predictions for Iowa, correctly nailing that Bachmann would end her race by the end of the week and calling Mitt Romney the winner, albeit by 8 votes. I thought Santorum would run fourth, but did expect...

    The nominating process may officially be underway, but Republicans have yet to enthusiastically embrace a potential nominee for president - and despite the late date, most would like to see other candidates enter the race, according to a new CBS News poll. The survey finds that 58 percent of Republican primary voters want more presidential choices, while just 37 percent say they are satisfied with the current field. The percentage of Republican primary voters that wants more choices has increased 12 percentage points since October. Mitt Romney, the frontrunner for the nomination, has struggled to break 30 percent support in...

Nine ballots were cast in New Hampshire’s Dixville Notch just after midnight. Romney and Huntsman received two votes each. Coming in second with one vote apiece were Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.

  • Romney's False Choice: You Either Support Asset-Stripping Or You Are Anti-Free Market Capitalism

    Gordon Gekko Romney is being taken to task over his proclivities, and activities at Bain. To make it short, Romney engaged in what is commonly known as asset-stripping. My point in this thread isn't to delve into the minutiae of what asset-stripping entails, but rather to point out that Romney is attempting to pigeonhole Gingrich as being anti-free market capitalism through the use of a false choice: If Gingrich doesn't support what Romney did at Bain, then he is anti-free market capitalism. Romney's false choice... And all the while, Romney is trying to use a smokescreen to cover what he...
