Republican Internal Polling Has Romney Up in Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire, Tied in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin
If these figures are correct, Romney will almost certainly become the 45th President of the United States…
Via the Daily Mail:
Mitt Romney is ahead by a single percentage point in Ohio, according to internal polling data provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source.
Internal campaign polling completed last night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin and – most startlingly – Pennsylvania.
If the Romney campaign’s internal numbers are correct – and nearly all independent pollsters have come up with a picture much more favourable for Obama – then the former Massachusetts governor will almost certainly be elected 45th U.S. President.
Then there’s these headlines on Drudge:
It’s going to be a stressful day tomorrow for most of us. But not in the mind of Dick Morris, who is predicting a Romney landslide.
Via Gateway Pundit:
Dick Morris doubled-down today telling Megyn Kelly on America Live there is a 90% chance Mitt Romney will win tomorrow and a 60% chance it will be a landslide.
In which government regulation jumps the shark…
Via Shine (h/t Matt):
State representative Michele Peckham is sponsoring House Bill 1444 which hopes to ban state employees who work with the public from wearing perfume. Apparently a constituent with extreme allergies approached Peckham with the proposal. “It may seem silly, but it’s a health issue,” Peckham told the Union Leader. “Many people have violent reactions to strong scents.”
The story cites an example in which one woman sued the city of Detroit under the Americans With Disabilities Act, claiming that a co-workers perfume made it hard for her to work. She was awarded $100,000.
The city ended up warning it’s employees city “to avoid using scented products like perfume, cologne, deodorant, lotion, and aftershave.”
Do these people realize the alternative to using deodorant? How hard will it be to work then? Just go ask Occupy Wall Street, they aren’t dabbling in any scented products, and they haven’t worked for months.
As if yesterday’s report on the massive ballot fraud case in upstate New York wasn’t disconcerting enough, here is a video provided by James O’Keefe and the Daily Caller, showing ballots being handed out in New Hampshire in the names of dead people. Shockingly enough, one of the election workers specifically says they can get away with this because in New Hampshire, “no ID (is) needed”.
Aren’t the Democrats the ones vehemently trying to fight voter ID requirements on the grounds that it’s racist?
In an op-ed yesterday, Newt Gingrich explains why requiring identification, something the Obama administration and Eric Holder have fought tooth and nail, is imperative for the integrity of one of our most important civic duties: voting.
But requiring a photo ID to vote is a common-sense security measure that helps ensure those without legal citizenship don’t vote, those with multiple homes or properties only vote once and that no one votes in place of another. Voters are harmed when illegal or fraudulent votes are cast, as they dilute or discount legitimate votes cast by honest Americans.
Just to reiterate, Jon Huntsman is practically a Democrat.
And so apparently, are his supporters. Was this a version of Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos, with a lot of “independents” trying to toss in votes for Huntsman?
Even so, how do you find 51% of anyone, outside of an asylum, who thinks Obama is a satisfactory President?
From the Gateway Pundit:
Governor Jon Huntsman took third place tonight in New Hampshire. In the exit polls, 51% of Huntsman voters said they were satisfied with Obama as president. 70% of the Huntsman voters describe themselves as moderate and liberals.
|On to South Carolina|
Nothing surprising here – Mitt Romney is projected to win New Hampshire by double digits, with Ron Paul coming in second. The head-scratcher here is Rick Perry, finishing a distant sixth. Perhaps this will be a sign to suspend his campaign, and spend time trying to figure out that third branch of government he’d like to eliminate.
Gingrich and Santorum are battling it out for fourth, with Jon Huntsman, a moderate with no money, no name recognition, and no redeeming value as a GOP candidate, finishing third.
Fox News calls it:
Mitt Romney has won the New Hampshire primary, Fox News projects, notching back-to-back victories in the first two contests of the presidential nominating season.
Fox News also projects that Ron Paul will finish second and Jon Huntsman will finish third. Rick Perry is projected to finish in sixth place — the rest of the night is shaping up to be a race for fourth, between Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. Both candidates are pulling in 10 percent of the vote.
“Tonight, we made history,” Romney said. “Tonight we celebrate, tomorrow we go back to work.”
This should pick off a few pretenders heading into South Carolina. If Mitt wins SC, it’ll be wrapped up…
