Skip to comments.Poll: Romney the frontrunner in 2016?
Posted on 06/19/2014 3:36:50 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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....

“How do we stop the first two or three primary states from picking our candidates? Im frankly tired of it.”
Why ? For the most part, I think things work well.
If you don’t like the results, then tell me who should have replaced Romney and McCain on the ballot.
I would miss some of those pic
No one ever runs for vice president again, after being on a ticket that loses. No one. It would be the worst career move for any politician. It practically screams ‘wimp’.

“Moderates” (like Romney) are lying manipulative bottom feeding scum. They’ll happily toss a race to democrats just to prevent a conservative from winning.
The only difference between moderates and democrats is that democrats at least have the stones to admit they’re democrats.
Yeah, and it was all her fault, wasn’t it?
As Herman Hupfeld so aptly phrased it in 1931, you must remember this :
NOTICE: FR DOES NOT AND WILL NOT SUPPORT ABORTIONIST, GAY RIGHTS PUSHING BIG GOVERNMENT STATISTS FOR PRESIDENT!!
This message is intended for those posters on FR who seem to have missed my prior statements in this regard and insist on advocating for these bastards.
I'd rather shut the place down than be involved in any effort to install abortionist/gay rights pushing RINOS like Romney or Giuliani into the White House!!
Do NOT push this crap on FR. Take your business elsewhere!! And I don't care how long you've been here!!
At home, my ass will stay.
Dude, fax me some of that, it must be unbelievably powerful!
But he ran a campaign like an amateur. Any evidence he’s learned anything?
That "Romney people run down Palin" story from 2008 was more than a little suspect. McCain people had more than enough reason to put the blame for their defeat on Palin without undercover Romneyites getting into the act.
So now you've got Romney surrogates attacking Palin's children? So why did Palin speak up for Romney's grandchild? Not all the evil in the world or everything bad said about Sarah Palin or her family can be traced back to Mitt Romney.
Well you can go crying to Mr. Robinson or you engage in debate ?
Suspect by who? Exactly? In detail.
His nutty disciples are looking to “do” FR. They should all be shown the door.
Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Possibly Rick Santorum and maybe (holds nose) Newt Gingrich. Id have gone for Sarah Palin, but I think shed have lost given the MSM headwinds.
Seriously, dude ? Are we going to spend hundreds of threads and thousands of posts debunking that nonsense again ? The only thing “impeccable” about him is the level of deceit, fraud and dishonesty this despicable malignant narcissist is capable of.
“Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Possibly Rick Santorum and maybe (holds nose) Newt Gingrich”
Ok. I thought each was a terribly flawed, but at least you can say no to Romney and yes to someone else.
Most people say no to romney but can not name a suitable replacement.
A Conservative. A non-ringer. Someone who was running to win. An actual opponent for Zero. Y’know ?
