    Union Leader ^ | October 21, 2012
    October 21. 2012 Why Mitt? Reality Over Fantasy EDITORIAL The undecided New Hampshire voter has just two weeks to answer this question: Why switch from Barack Obama to Mitt Romney? By now the question is easy to answer if one has been listening to the candidates. Barack Obama was in Manchester on Thursday. When he came to Veterans Park in 2008, he sold “hope and change.” He was uplifting, inspiring. Last week, that was gone. In its place was the negativity, the deception, the nastiness that Obama once said he wanted to remove from politics. Obama offered New Hampshire nothing...

    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...

    October 20, 2012 Romney Momentum in Swing States By Guy Benson 10/19/2012   Nationally, Gallup held fairly steady today, with Romney leading by six among likely voters; Rasmussen has it tied, with data suggesting a small Romney bump is probably on the way.  A new Gravis nationwide poll has Romney leading 46-44, despite a D+8 sample.  The GOP nominee leads independents by eight points in that survey.  PPP's DailyKos/SEIU tracker has Obama up one, thanks to strong youth support.  (Romney leads every other age group, and young voters are the least likely cohort to vote this year). But what about...

    For Obama and Romney, Small New Hampshire Could Have A Big Impact By Dan Balz October 18 MANCHESTER, N.H. — New Hampshire is the smallest of the battleground states, with just four electoral votes, and for much of the fall it has seemed an afterthought to the candidates as they’ve campaigned across more prominent contested states. That changed Thursday with the arrival of President Obama at a downtown rally on a brilliant fall day. His appearance, and the later kickoff of a 24-hour campaign swing through the state by his surrogates, underscored the state’s potential significance in the competition for...

    EXETER — Some came for the politics, some came for the skating and others came just to see what the commotion was about. Olympic gold medalist figure skater Scott Hamilton spoke at the Rinks at Exeter on Wednesday afternoon as his last stop on a New Hampshire tour endorsing Mitt Romney for president. "It's difficult because as a figure skater you want everybody to like you, and when you stand up here only half of (the) people like you," said Hamilton, "but I feel very strongly about this."

    Long Island was the electoral map has narrowed and Obama’s team, while conceding nothing publicly, is circling the wagons around Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada. 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,...

    CONCORD – A new, independent poll has President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney tied in New Hampshire, each with 47 percent support, as the two candidates prepare for their second of three debates Tuesday night. The Oct. 12-15 poll of 500 likely voters from Suffolk University was carried out after Romney’s strong performance in the first debate. Pollster David Paleologos said a troubling sign for the President is his job approval rating remains at 47 percent three weeks before the Nov. 6 election.

    (CNN) – A poll released Monday indicates Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are tied in the battleground state of New Hampshire. Likely voters in the Granite State are split 47% to 47%, according to a Suffolk University/7News survey. Two percent of voters support Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson, while 4% are undecided. -snip- With the race so close, New Hampshire is one state where support for Johnson, the Libertarian candidate, could prove decisive in the final results. David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center in Boston, said Obama will likely benefit more than Romney from Johnson voters....

    New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR) conducted a gubernatorial debate on 19 September 2012. One of the questions had to do with the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), an effort to limit greenhouse gases by auctioning CO2 allowances (sounds like cap and trade to me). Republican Ovide Lamontagne favors repeal of RGGI, while Democrat Maggie Hassan favors keeping it. Watch and listen to their answers at about 32 minutes into the debate. They are in a lightning round, with a ten-second limit to answers. Ms. Hassan's answer, from the previously linked video, follows: ***** "I was proud to be a sponsor...

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.

    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...
