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.

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.
All this proves is that a Communist country will always choose the proven Stalinesque candidate over a socialist.
The only decent thing that’s ever come out of Massachusetts is I-95 and our esteemed FRiend Stephen John Banker.
Note that this is before the GOP starts hammering away at Obama instead of each other. Also, this is before the money parity the GOP should achieve this year, as opposed to McCain being outspent 3 to 1 due to his self-inflicted federal matching funds fiasco. It's also before hundreds of millions of GOP Super PAC money starts crapping on Obama from a great height in the form of saturation attack ads. The Rev Wright was off-limits in 2008. Now that Obama has promised to raise their taxes, a lot of middle of the road Democrat 1 percenters are going to contribute to Romney Super PAC's a chunk of what they might pay in taxes under a 2nd Obama term.
This result caught a number of people off guard. I thought Obama’s lead there would be much bigger.
Over time, we have agreed on much, but now things have changed.
You might as well put me on your “whining” list, because I WILL NOT vote for that RINO bastard. I WILL NOT yield to MSM, Rove, Romney-Fox news, the corrupt GOP-e or anyone else that supports that POS liar.
I 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.
To be clear, I WILL NOT vote for Romney. I have held that position from the start of this faux race and nothing has changed. To me, broccoli is broccoli, regardless of what’s put on it.... I hate broccoli.
In any case, Americans will get the country it apparently wants and a country it so richly deserves.
The left wins, either way.
This is an interesting barometer reading of his diminishing attraction to liberals in general. Obamanomics is an equal opportunity menace, and liberalism is a luxury that becomes harder and harder to indulge in when one's wallet is shrinking.
And the electorate shares in that corruption as well, given the “gimme-summa-dat-munny” mindset having replaced the “what’s-good-for-the-country” one.
This is an abysmal result for Obama. A poll taken after GOP nominees have been stomping each other's guts out over the course of 9 months, and an 11 point margin is all Obama can muster up in a state he won by a 26 point margin over McCain? Subtract 15 points from all of Obama's state-by-state victory margins in 2008, and 2012 begins to look like a 332 to 206 GOP landslide victory - not as big as Obama's 2008 margin, but nothing that will require a recount anywhere in the country.
