Massachusetts: Obama 51%, Romney 40%
Rasmussen Reports ^ | April 11, 2012

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.

Come on up! We've got GRANOLA! And excise tax.

Mind you leave your guns at home though. We do not tolerate guns in the People's Republik of Massholes.

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.

Lest we forget, Massachusetts was the only state that George McGovern carried. It's actually more of a minimum security mental hospital than a state.

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.

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.

Massachusetts: Obama 51%, Romney 40%

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).

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.

-—. 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.

Bingo!

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.

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 Reagan’s 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.

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.

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!

Why are you so convinced that Romney cannot win?

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.

This is closer than I thought MA would be.

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.
