Skip to comments.Shocker: Mitt Romney Winning Tea Party Vote in New Hampshire
Posted on 12/23/2011 5:20:13 AM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing
Mitt Romney broke through the tea party barrier Monday, winning that segment's vote in a New Hampshire poll.
Romney beat Ron Paul among tea partiers, 29 percent to 21 percent, the Public Policy Polling survey reported. It was the first time Romney has carried a plurality of tea party voters, with whom the former Massachusetts governor has had chilly relations.
And in a possible leading indicator heading to Florida, Romney garnered 50 percent of the senior vote in the New Hampshire poll conducted by the Democratic-leaning PPP.
Overall, Romney was the choice of 35 percent of PPP respondents. Paul garnered 19 percent; Newt Gingrich, 13 percent; Jon Huntsman, 5 percent; Michele Bachmann, 3 percent; Rick Santorum, 2 percent; and Rick Perry and Gary Johnson, 1 percent.
I’m guessing that these aren’t original Tea Party type folks. More like some sort of off shoot that has been infiltrated by moderates yet still refer to themselves as “Tea Party” to get in the news.
Run Donald Trump run . And pick Allen West for VP . Screw the establishment and Obozo !
Something smells very sh.....er...Obama-my about that poll.
No true Tea Partier would vote for Weather Vane Sponge Pants RINOmney.
That’s the understatement of the year.
Sorry but the tea party has collapsed and gone into a full retreat. The fact that Newt Romney even registers with Tea Party voters should be all the evidence needed.
One word “Massholes”!
Mitt has a home here and has owned the NH GOP (be fair, he paid for it) for years.
Whoa - what’s in that tea?

I SMELL BS here.
The Globe had Scott Brown down something like 15 points the week he won his seat.
Live Democrat or Die
From the fake Tea Partys such as the one
which attacked Gov. Palin from Texas
created by RINO Romney and Hudack
to the FAKE polls in Texas "informing" Gov Palin not to run
created by RINOs
to the rumor-fomenting Sullivans in S.C.both in bed
to the anti-Gov Palin rumors from Ken Crow in Iowa initiating
the rumors that Gov Palin would not Run for President.
Better hope you’re wrong, the TEA party is about all thats left of conservatism.
“No true Tea Partier would vote for Weather Vane Sponge Pants RINOmney.”
There are no tea party candidates this time, except Bachmann, and in economic issues, Paul. Perry and Santorum are barely tolerable. Newt and Mitt are both unacceptable.
Newt is pushing ethanol subsidies, Amnesty and BigGov initiatives. Only few years ago he strongly pushed cap-and-trade. No real tea party person could support him. Now people had to take a look of Newt and found him identical or even more liberal than Mitt.
If Bachmann can pull of surprise win in IA and keep up the message, she is the only one who can save us. I still don’t trust Perry enough.
Under no circumstances NewtRomney.
Heck, his father was Mexican born.
Makes him ineligible, like Obama.
No wonder the MSM and other enemies of the
the USA LOVE Mexican Mitt.
US election 2012: Mitt Romney's life as a poor Mormon missionary in France questioned
Although he spent time in other French cities, for most of 1968, Mr Romney lived in the Mission Home,
a 19th century neoclassical building in the French capitals chic 16th arrondissement.
. I would describe it as a palace.
Tearful as he described Romney aides had asked him not to speak publicly
The building...was bought by the Mormons in 1952,
having been seized by the Nazis during the Second World War.
The Church sold it again..
.it was until recently the embassy of the United Arab Emirates.
"(The GroundZero Mosque) cleared its final hurdle
developers plan to build the $100 million center which will include a mosque.
Since its incipient stages in July 2009, when a Muslim-run real-estate development
company purchased the damaged, vacant building and land where the new center
will be built, the project has sparked controversy and debate.
.... the tattered building that was bought by the Muslim real estate company had
been owned by a subsidiary of Bain Capital, a company Romney founded in 1984.
So its OK if his company can profit off the sale of the land ."
The way the Tea Party betrayed Herman Cain, they don’t deserve to be taken seriously anymore.
its like the Mass-of-2-$h!tter$ and their RINO Scott Brown....hard to get real conservatives here in the NE.
