He's said over and over that he won't run for the White House a third time, but a new poll indicates that if Mitt Romney changed his mind and made another bid for president, he'd be the frontrunner among Republicans in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire.
According to the Suffolk University/Boston Herald survey, which was released Thursday, 24% of Granite State Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say that Romney would be their first choice for their party's presidential nomination.
Among the potential 2016 GOP contenders, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a distant second, at 9%, with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 8%, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 7%.
While the survey may make headlines, it's important to remember that Romney's very well known in New Hampshire. He owns a vacation home in the state, has often appeared at GOP events in New Hampshire, and was governor of neighboring Massachusetts. Romney easily won the 2012 Republican primary, but lost the state by six percentage points to President Barack Obama in the general election....

Dunno. But we need him. I’d be embarrassed posting that crap all this time later. But what can you do. He’s a Romney fan. They never were that bright.
I backed Perry, Cain, and Newt, before the only one left standing was Romney.
I didn't like Romney...but it was Romney versus Obama.
Yur whining about Romney got Obama elected.
So Obama is your man! And the country owes you a big debt of thx! Or not.
Wooo!! you backed Perry! Mr I hate border fences/Guardasil. I AM impressed.
Unlike you Obama supporters. You were oh so bright, weren't you?
Who did you back in the beginning?
Same person I backed at the end. Palin.
You backed an abortion guy and defend it. On a conservative site.
I always backed Palin, but she wasn't running.
That's like backing the Braves in Yankees/Red Sox playoff.
So? Politics isn’t an either or sport. See the Founders for details. Why do you hate the founders vision for voting?
Gotta go. This has been swell lib. Ta Ta.
Has Elvis and your brain left your noggin.
When you have two candidates, it is a binary decision. Palin wasn't running.
No disrespect intended.
I know you mean the best.
Did you read my post ? Go back and read it again. Dubya got it on his first try in 2000. Retreads are losers for us since after Reagan.
Nope, sorry, not playing your game of false choices and strawman arguments, kiddo. I don’t vote Communist and I don’t vote Socialist. I don’t vote for damnable ringers. I vote Conservative.
Just remember when you rubber stamp another big-government leftist RINO pre-selected for you by the establishment, you’re the one keeping the corrupted system and fixed game going. Criticizing others for not perpetuating it makes you a tool of that system. If you’re a Conservative, you’ll wake up and stop being a tool.
Post #157 is for you, too, toots.
What state are you in ? I’m always purty suspicious of folks with a blank FReeper page acting all high and mighty in the cause of the opposition.
You voted Socialist, you backed him. You made your bed.
