    Default New polls point to Romney landslide in N.Hampshire

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...8010U520120102

    Romney, the former governor of neighboring Massachusetts who has a vacation estate in New Hampshire, has 43 percent support among likely primary voters in a 7 News/Suffolk University daily tracking poll, and 41 percent in a survey by the polling firm Magellan Strategies.

    He has a double-digit lead over his nearest rival Texas congressman Ron Paul, who polled at 21 percent in the Magellan Strategies survey and 17 percent in the 7 News/Suffolk University survey.

    A large proportion of Romney supporters now say they are unlikely to change their minds, said David Paleologos, director of Suffolk University's Political Research Center.

    You mean 'which bloody fool is the best bloody fool?' Does either man have a policy? A manifesto? Oh, I guess it doesn't matter as long as he has nice white teeth and a holiday home in the area.
    Q: Lets discuss the economy.
    A: Abortions should not be allowed.
    Q: How about foreign policy?
    A: Everyone should own a gun.
    Q: How about government advisers?
    A: We have an old man on a cloud who tells us what to think. He is a good old man on a cloud, unlike the other old man on a cloud who wears strange headgear.

    Thank you Mr. Glove man, we know America (if not the world) would be safe in your hands ... if you could just gather enough mentally challenged people to vote for you.

    I find this difficult to believe, meaning that this is nothing more than lamestream media hyperbole. NH is the birthplace of the 'free state project' and is home to a very large gathering of Ron Paul supporters.
    You cannot expect to be able to discard the rule of law in favor of the rule of force and have those you target not respond in kind.

    Nothing unbelieveable here. In fact, it fits the mold of 2008 quite well. Right now, according to the OP:

    Romney
    Paul
    ???

    In 2008 after Huckabee won the Iowa caucus, in New Hampshire it went something like:

    McCain - 37%
    Romney - 31%
    Huckabee - 11%

    I don't see anything pointing to it being any different.

    Romney will get the teabag vote in New England, but not so much in the south where he's considered a cult wizard.

    Romney was Governor of Mass. Paul has been in Congress for close to 30 years. They have participated in multiple political debates in 2007/2008 and now 2011. If you have to ask questions about what they believe on certain issues it's because you haven't been following not because it hasn't been discussed.

    Romney knew of this in 2008, and will anticipate losing much of the South. Typically, though, multiple candidates split up the South (such as Thompson and Huckabee last time), making it a smaller blow to Romney. He will do well in the Mountain West, Midwest, and Northeast, though.

    I certainly have not been following. I have far more interesting things to do with my time. If this Glove puppet has been in politics for 30 years I would imagine he could do more than offer meaningless soundbites to the world's cameras. If, indeed, he does have policies and a manifesto he must be the first prospective candidate for your presidency ever to have one.
    Honestly you cannot afford to have a faith-tied man as leader of a major world power for so many reasons.
    Your politics are sliding closer and closer to Disney. If you ditch Obama you deserve everything you get. Seriously.
