    Nathanael “Teddy” Nappen, Troop 75 Bow, Daniel Webster Council, has completed his Eagle Scout Service Project, which was to help restore the historic Wilson Hill Pistol Club located at 1732 Lake Shore Road in Manchester. This indoor shooting club provides firearm safety training and marksmanship skills to the public and is a non-profit organization. Scouts can also earn their rifle merit badge at this club. The building was built in 1948, and the exterior was in disrepair. Teddy was assisted in the restoration project by 24 volunteers, of whom the majority were scouts and scout parents from Troop 75.

    Mitt Romney now trails by only 6 points in New Hampshire, according to a new poll released Tuesday evening. The latest WMUR Granite State poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, shows President Barack Obama leading Romney among likely voters, 47 percent to 41 percent. Obama held a 15-point lead in last week's Granite State poll, which was conducted Sept. 27-30. The latest poll was conducted Sept. 30-Oct. 6, with 57 percent of the responses coming before the Oct. 3 presidential debate in Denver. As has been the case with other post-debate polling shifts, Obama has seen...

    OHIOReference to coal helps Romney pull even in Buckeye StateMitt Romney’s performance in the first presidential debate has gotten him back into the race in Ohio, in part because he raised an issue that resonates here.“By the way, I like coal. I’m going to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal,” he said during the debate. “People in the coal industry feel like it’s getting crushed by your policies.”According to the Ohio Coal Association, almost half of the state’s 26 coal plants are due to close by 2015, thanks to Environmental Protection Agency regulations.Since the debate, Romney has...

    Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, a co-chairman of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, on Tuesday dismissed a new poll showing President Obama up by 15 points in the Granite State as "a piece of garbage" and predicted Mr. Romney ultimately would win the state by 2 to 3 points. "Let me just test your political wisdom," Mr. Sununu said to host Chuck Todd on MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown." "Do you think it's possible for that to be right? No, you know it's a piece of garbage." "I believe it's head-to-head in New Hampshire," Mr. Sununu continue, "and I've seen enough...

    (The following is the second of three excerpts from The Right Frequency: The Story of the Talk Radio Giants Who Shook Up the Political and Media Establishment , by Fred Lucas; History Publishing Company. The adapted excerpts look at the impact of talk radio on election results.) Before what would turn out to be an historic election, a New York Times article said, “If Larry King’s CNN program functioned as a nominating process for Ross Perot; Rush Limbaugh may be a kind of national precinct captain for the Republican insurgency of 1994.” An election night poll by Fabrizio-McLaughlin of 1,000...

    Powerline ^ | September 29, 2012 | John Hinderaker
    On our podcast today, Brian Ward, Steve Hayward and I talked about the obviously bogus polls that purport to show Barack Obama with a big lead in various swing states, even though those same polls show Romney winning independent voters by significant margins. Those results make sense only if enormous numbers of voters are signing up as Democrats. But is there any evidence of any such trend? Not at all; the evidence is entirely to the contrary. Hugh Hewitt, among others, has been talking about these data: Voter registration in the Buckeye State is down by 490,000 people from four...

    Congressional candidate Ann McLane Kuster said Wednesday she took a video camera from a staffer of rival Rep. Charlie Bass at a public event last weekend because the staffer repeatedly interrupted a private conservation she was having and "nearly hit me in the face" with the camera. She said she had one of her supporters return the camera "moments later." The video was posted Tuesday at nhjournal.com, the conservative website of the New Hampshire Journal (scroll down for the video). It shows Democrat Kuster, who is running against Republican incumbent Bass for the state's 2nd District seat, being approached by...

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will soon be back to doing what she does best — campaigning for President Obama. Sebelius will travel to New Hampshire this weekend for a swing of “grassroots events” with Obama, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader. The campaign trip comes after the Office of Special Counsel found that Sebelius had violated federal campaign law by campaigning for Obama during an official event. “OSC concluded that Secretary Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when

    Things went from bad to worse for Jill Biden on Friday after accidentally cracking a joke about her husband's manhood. Captured on video, this is the moment the Second Lady lost her cool at a New Hampshire campaign event, giggling like a schoolgirl as the crowd roared with delight. Passionately describing Mr Biden's work ethic she began: 'I've seen Joe up close,' making a wide motion with her hands, before blushing as she realised the innuendo she had just made. 'It's in my remarks, really,' she insisted. A wave of amused titters swept the audience, Mrs Biden allowing herself an...

    A national organization advocating for marriage being defined as between one man and one woman has declared victory in the political primaries of Rhode Island and New Hampshire. The National Organization for Marriage sent out a statement on Wednesday referring to the defeat of several pro-same-sex marriage candidates in the Democratic primary as a "massacre." "A massive last-minute surge of money from pro gay marriage millionaire Tim Gill couldn't drown out the voice of the people, who defeated five out of six pro gay marriage state senators," read the statement from Brian Brown, president of NOM. "The media and pro...

    The day after he officially accepted the presidential nomination at the Democratic National Convention, President Barack Obama energized a crowd of thousands in New Hampshire with a speech laden with policy and partisan politics. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden spoke outdoors under sunny skies at the Strawbery Banke Museum, with American flags draped over nearby buildings. Their wives, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, joined them onstage at the end of the rally. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is scheduled to hold his own New Hampshire rally in Nashua on Friday evening. Obama, in rolled-up shirtsleeves, spoke for nearly 30...

    Today's Swing State poll has pretty good news across the board for Romney/Ryan: in CO (once a source of GOP concern) it's tied; in WI, Romney is up 1; in FL and IA, he's up 2; in OH, it's tied; in PA, Romney is down 4; in NH, Romney down 5; and in NV (the worst) Romney is down 5 with ZEro at 50%. WI has been hanging tough, CO and IA moving up for Romney; FL a little tight, but I just don't believe that number---I think it's 4-5 points; and PA is winnable. NV concerns me, and what...

    BOSTON — The head of the prominent Marriott hotel chain and fellow Mormon J.W. Marriott thanked Mitt Romney today during a Mormon church service for bringing “positive attention” to the religion, which is often considered to be shrouded in mystery. “There has never been as much positive attention to the church, thanks to the wonderful campaign of Mitt Romney and his family,” Marriott said during a service at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Wolfeboro, N.H., the lakeside town where the Romney family has a home. Marriott’s remarks come after a noticeable shift in the campaign to...
