Posted on 04/11/2012 11:31:21 AM PDT by Clintonfatigued
President Obama continues to hold a double-digit lead in Massachusetts over Mitt Romney, governor of the state from 2003 to 2007.
A new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters in Massachusetts finds Obama earning 51% support to Romney's 40%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

Massachusetts is a foreign country.
Romney will make Goldwater look like a squeaker Conservatives are out again on this one. .
This is closer than I thought MA would be.
Mind you leave your guns at home though. We do not tolerate guns in the People's Republik of Massholes.
Or, at least cut them loose and see how that experienticence works out.
Massachusetts’s the first nation of LORD OF THE FLIES.
I grew up in Newton, Mass.
I know how bad it is : )
Canada is an ally!
“This is closer than I thought MA would be.”
I will admit I’m a bit surprised too. Still not voting for Rombot, but he is going to make O spend money in Mass, Maine, N.H., and Michigan.
I thought the spread would be bigger, though.
Romney is going to lose the South. He is down significantly in NC... I’ll bet GA is also in play. One of the worst presidencies in history is going to win reelection in a landslide. That is how bad of a candidate Romney is. Vote Virgil Goode.
Canada has moved to the right and we have moved to the left. It's unlikely Canada would accept. Several countries which were once to the left of us are now moving to the right of us. For the last 5 years Vietnam has been giving up its control of markets and putting them in control of the private sector.
I’m watching the Mosquito Coast for the 20th time since 2008
We must take the Senate, Obamney is going no where just like Juanito
I lived in Townsend,Ma for 26 years..
That is actually very low for a liberal Democrat President in this state. I doubt they are polling his base in the inner city projects. I expect that number to go up.
I know that state is a left wing nut house, but I will only believe Obama is gone, when he actually leaves the White House. I know most think he will get beat, but I remember McCain, Dole, Ford, and other liberal RINO dolts, who lost to a real liberal.
I was going to say that this was good news for Scott Brown, but if this poll was taken with the same sample as that Senate poll showing Brown losing by 1% then it’s not such good news for Brown (who would only be getting 4% more of the vote than Romney).
Where there lacks a clear choice there lacks a passion
So the likely voters of Massachusetts put Zer0 ahead of their ex-Governor by almost 10 points? Very strange, unless a huge number of likely voters have no clue about ex-governors or what is going on in the Republican primaries. All they know is Zer0.
>> closer than I thought <<
Yeah, and not only that:
When Big Ø can poll only 51% in the nation’s most leftwing state, he’s gotta be in Big Trouble.
Very true so that stats are good for conservatives.
-—. It’s actually more of a minimum security mental hospital than a state.——
Still, with an overwhelmingly Democrat House and Senate, they’re not raising taxes this year.
The loci of insanity are the college towns, Boston and Amherst.
Outside of Boston, there is nothing left of the other four major cities except illegal immigrants, check-cashing, quickie lottery marts and pawn shops.
The 128 high tech belt keeps the state alive.
This is one ot the States with the highest Catholic population but in reality they all left the church with the Kennedy family. The Catholic church lost a lot of credibility when they honored the Kennedy family while they pushed abortion,divorced many times, slept around and yes a death or two. Throw in fornication and rape.
This is closer than I thought MA would be.
Obambi is screwed. He’ll have to defend every single blue state and at the end of the day will probably lose some of them. He’s just not gonna make it.
Can we cede Massachusettss over to Canada?
We don’t want em.
Surprise, surprise....MA communists voting for a communist. If MA is ever attacked...good.
Reagan carried Massachusetts, twice. Still, I’m surprised. I thought people would have had enough of the whole Obama family, Aunt, Uncle and nephew, by now.
40%, I’m impressed. That’s twice what Santorum would’ve gotten.
Mitt: Mass. knows he is a weak choice... they experienced him.
Only 51% for Chairman Maobama in the People’s Republic of Taxachusetts?
Of course, since I'm ancient, it was nothing like it is now.
This pretty much says it all... :-)
I, and many others, have long said that the very moment that Romney becomes the nominee, Obama wins another 4 years.
Vote your conscience, I most certainly will mine.
Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967
Ronald Reagans warning about losing our freedoms echoes down through a generation of lost momentum and squandered opportunity.
We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.
I believe that Newt was the one leader that could have turned our country away from the abyss, intelligently and quickly.
It is abundantly clear that not enough folks shared my beliefs, instead of a leader, they wanted a preacher.... and far too many lacked the courage to forgive and look beyond the personal sins in a mans past and into the promise of a brighter future for our country. That is certainly a free choice and a personal choice.... and as it is with all choices, there will be consequences.
In any case, Americans will get the country it apparently wants and a country it so richly deserves.
Hey! It’s months to the election. Anything can happen.
Keep your chins up. This is a long way from over.
An excellent point to make when writing to the RNC to implore them not to let Romney lay an egg in 2012. NEWT 2012.
What do they define as a “Likely Voter”??
I live on the MA state line, and anyone I have ever spoken to (in MA) has not had a good word to say about O in the last year-not once!
As I am writing this, I am sitting in my relative’s home, in a blue state who voted for O, but when the news came on, they had not one good thing to say about him.
And what really surprised me, is THEY brought it up first, I didn’t make a peep! (you can’t have a decent coversation with a liberal family member)....so, based on my observations, this election will have to be stolen.
Wasn’t Brown trailing by 40 at this point?
Pray for America
Just for the record...In 2008 Mr. Obama won MA with 61.8% of the popular vote. McCain pulled down 36%.
-—This pretty much says it all... :-)-—
Funny and true. City motto: Get out before you’re hit by an illegal in an insurance scam.
Don't worry -- it will be! Obama and the MSM haven't started to campaign against Romney yet. I was hoping he'd jump the gun and start now, so that even the GOPe would see how hopeless a candidate Romney would be -- before the convention. But I just heard a soundbite from an Obama spokesman saying Obama won't mention Romney for months.
Romney really is Obama's dream of a Republican candidate, but I think he knows how unpopular Romney is with conservatives (with good reason) and wants to be sure Romney is the nominee before he wastes all that glorious ammunition!
There are several months left before any poll is accurate.
Consider all the variables that will determine the race first, before you predict doom and gloom. By November, the economy will be in shambles, the debt even more so, Gas prices will be into the $5 range, a loaf of bread, a bag of chips and gallon if milk will cost 5 bucks and the millions more on Food Stamps and Welfare will drain the the taxpayers to panic proportions.
Add all the other International events that will likely come to a head by the end of this year, and you have Obama as the equivalent of Jimmy Carter on Steroid's.
This election is very winnable from our standpoint. Maybe if more CONservatives would get positive, pitch in and lend a hand to demonstrate those superior “Principles”, instead of only griping, threatening to stay home and vow to keep whining, we might not only win, we can actually get somewhat back on track.
Thats actually not that bad at this point considering Romney has not even really started to run.
You would figure slumbama would be at least 55-60% in MASS
Obamanites will do their best.
Geez - What are the demographics in MA?
In fact, Gov. Romney was perceived as too conservative in MA. See who he was replaced with?
“I grew up in Newton, Mass.”
...I lived in West Newton (on Washington St) in the 80’s and worked on Copley Square. It was hopeless then. I’m sure it’s worse now.
McCain lost by 21 points in MA. If Obama is only ahead 11 points there, he's in serious trouble. Subtract 10 points from Obama's margin of victory in 2008 everywhere, and Romney wins. It's not a landslide, but it's nothing like the electoral vote squeakers of 2000 and 2004.
