Poll: Bachmann Gains On Romney, Romney (Still) Beating Obama

In the latest poll of New Hampshire voters, Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) made significant gains, placing second after former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. The poll also revealed that, in a hypothetical Presidential race, Romney still beats President Barack Obama — a lead the former Governor has enjoyed since February.

In the latest WMUR Granite State Poll, which was conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, “35 percent of likely Republican primary voters said they would vote for Romney. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann climbed into second place after a strong showing in June’s New Hampshire debate, with 12 percent of the vote,” read an article on WMUR.com.

Tied for third place were Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) and the as-yet-undeclared former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, with 7 percent of the vote each. Texas Governor Rick Perry, also undeclared, garnered 4 percent, while Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin had 3 percent each.

“In a hypothetical presidential race between Romney and President Barack Obama, Romney leads with 47 percent of the vote to Obama’s 43 percent. Romney has held a lead over Obama since February,” the article read.

The poll had 773 randomly-selected participants, including 357 likely Republican primary voters and 263 Democratic primary voters. Participants were interviewed by telephone between June 21 and July 1.

    I FIND IT NO LESS THAN ASTOUNDING THAT THE ADJECTIVE, “CONSERVATIVE” IS USED BY SOME TRADITIONAL REPUBLICAN WRITERS AND SOME RIGHT OF CENTER INDEPENDENTS FOR DESCRIBING ROMNEY. IN 2007 WHEN HE LEFT THE GOVERNORSHIP OF MASSACHUSETTS, THESE HAD BEEN PART OF HIS PLATFORM:

    FOR ABORTION’

    FOR GUN CONTROL,

    FOR A STATE MANDATORY HEALTH PLAN– SIMILAR TO OBAMACARE,

    FOR SAME SEX MARRIAGES,

    FOR GLOBAL WARMING LAWS AND ABATEMENT EXPENDITURES.

    FOR GAY “RIGHTS.”

    FOR CONTINUATION OF SUBSIDIZING FOOD (GRAIN) INTO ETHANOL.

    IT IS SAID THAT IN FOUR SHORT YEARS MITT ROMNEY CHANGED HIS MIND ON ALL OR SOME THE ABOVE. IF SO WHAT HE TELLS THE ELECTORATE IS THAT HIS WORD IS OF DUBIOUS VALUE AT VERY BEST.

    WHAT POLITICIANS SAY IS SELDOM RELEVANT: WHAT THEY HAVE DONE IS.

    Raymond: In the past two weeks alone he changed his mind three times on whether or not Obama was responsible for today’s economy.He fails to realize what he said is all recorded and on YouTube and the Keith Olbermann show Countdown on Current TV.

    I hope Michelle Bachmann wins. She could be the first woman President of the USA. COuld you RePUBS have a Romney/ Bachmann ticket coming in 2012 ?

    OK – if you really, really want to win I recommend you get one of Ronald Reagan’s son’s to run for President …..

    How about Michael Reagan ?

    If Ron Jr. had an overnite conversion to God,Country and conservatism – I would recommend him …

    With her views on slavery I am sure she (Bachmann) is willing and able to enslave blacks for their own betterment. It would be far less a big deal if not for the fact that this idiot (spelled correctly) really believes in the crap she spews out on the national level. No it is not a matter of moderates, liberals, progressive liberals or even real Reagan conservatives not liking any conservative candidate. The present group has their baggage but it is candidates like Bachman that waste the time of the voters who want good solid people to elect and not ones who are not only off the chart but also out of their damn minds. I would sooner vote for David Duke, at least he is not all over the board with his hate or rather he does not attempt to disguise hypocrisy by wrapping it in democracy. Since when did it become ok to equate slavery with anything good?

    Taken from a country you consider home and brought to another country to become a slave. Even if by chance you were a family when you were kidnapped, (in most cases not) you had to in most cases endure the master (Thomas Jefferson and others) taking the daughter you were trying to be a father to so he could do with her as he pleased. What sane person running for the highest office in the land would sign such a document as the one Bachmann signed? And some of you say and with distain that the president is Muslim.

    So Bachmann is the Christian who believes there’s some good in slavery? I bet she is just broken up she was not in the state of Texas after the emancipation. She could have gotten a few more good years in to keep two parent black households together. But never mind Michelle if you are elected you and your group can help out the blacks by enslaving them again. You know the saying; only Christians know what’s best for Israel and blacks.
