The Yankee Outlier

New Hampshire

In the contrarian state of New Hampshire, which relishes thumbing its nose at Vermont and Massachusetts, Romney has pulled ahead of Obama in the latest ARG poll, 50 percent to 46 percent.

Note: Unless you count Pennsylvania, New Hampshire is the only Northeastern state that Romney has a chance of winning. He won big there in the Republican primary. This might become increasingly important because Ohio isn’t looking that great for Romney in November.

If Romney holds the South (Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia) and wins Colorado (he is ahead there), he can win the presidency without Ohio by winning in New Hampshire, Iowa, and Nevada. He’s also winning in Nevada.

The presidential race could be decided in Iowa, not Ohio. Joe Biden’s performance in the VP debate didn’t help Obama in Iowa either.

  1. I find it hugely offensive that a Black sits in the most powerful political office in the world. Even if he is a puppet, like big bird, he’s profiting off thousands of years of work of my ancestors who created the civilization we now enjoy.

    He’s a halfcaste throw back, the embodiment of why my anecestors and yours LEFT Africa. He’s a lazy good for nothing HNIC.

  2. New Hampshire is more rural and agricultural than the other two states. Vermont has been taken over by rich liberal city folk with their country estates and businesses. At one time Vermont was the independent voice in New England, but now New Hampshire stands out.

    Pennsylvania may have the largest rural (and conservative) population of any state, but it is being out-numbered by the urbans.

  3. I believe much of the pro-Romney polling may not reflected in the voting booth. Many whites know that on a strictly “by the numbers” basis, Romney is the go-to guy. But in the privacy of the voting booth, pulling the lever for the neocon war machine is something many whites will not be able to do.

    These two idiots currently in office are perfect overall for the white agenda.

  4. Yankees are agonizing over whether to vote FOR Romney. Most would probably have no problem voting against Obama, if given a reasonable alternative.

  5. New Hampshire differs from the rest of New England because of the significant number of Scots-Irish who settled there in the 18th Century. “Live Free or Die” is the state motto, and it is also the implicit principle on which most folks of Scots-Irish descent base their lives, whether they reside in the old Appalachian hearth land of the Scots-Irish or elsewhere. These are the folks who really won American independence by whipping the British out of back country South Carolina in 1780, and they will be the most obstinate in resisting the metrosexual, liberal, elitist, socialist, multicultural agenda of our time.

  6. NH is doomed in the long run. The lefties fleeing Boston and CT are settling there and will eventually outnumber the “live free or die” folks.

  7. “Yankees are agonizing over whether to vote FOR Romney. Most would probably have no problem voting against Obama, if given a reasonable alternative.” – We shouldn’t project our own motives onto others. Romney is not an unreasonable candidate to the majority, regardless of the attempt to prevent this trainwreck from happening during the republican primary, or he wouldn’t be the republican nominee.

  8. You make a valid point, Anon. Romney definitely looked like the normal one in that goofball bunch. But standing alone, he stinks like a rotten egg.

    This is what fence sitters are dealing with, and that’s no projection.

Slaves may adore and love despotism, but it is our part to detest and to resist it.

    Don’t these good British-Isles-descended rural New Hampshire folk, of the far northern reaches of the Appalachian mountain chain, look and even dance much like those of the same heritage who were born and bred in the SOUTHERN mountains? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZubTju7g_s

    Notably: Ron Paul won the primary in the most RURAL part of the state, and placed second after Romney overall, and there were no less than 44 Republican Presidential candidates on the primary ballot this year!

  10. At 3:10 he is removed forcibly from Newt’s “victory party.” Probably not a Celt but a Talmudist.

  11. John says:
    No it was Degrasse and Rochambeau.

    Cornwallis let himself get besieged at Yorktown because he was hounded out of the south

  12. Every state has conservative enclaves, generally corresponding to lower population density, less demographic heterogeneity. Jay (see comment above) holds that reliable conservatism corresponds strongly to Scots-Irish ancestry, and hence New Hampshire differs from the rest of New England.

  14. H_I_L_N, New Jersey was rural, agricultural and conservative when Lincoln lost in New Jersey in 1860, and thanks to the Pennsyltuckians, Pennsylvania went almost 40% for the Southern Democrat Breckinridge. New Hampshire voted much less for Lincoln than Vermont and other New England states, and the pattern continues to this day.

  15. Mosin:

    Back in 1860, NJ was basically a Southern state without the slavery. NJ was even contemplating joining the Confederacy and stayed neutral for a good part of the war. NJ had an issue with being bullied from NY. For example, NY (with Federal backing) claimed its ‘territory’ up the high tide mark on the Jersey shore. This basically banned NJ from having its own sea ports. An attempt of a local businessman to open a port in Perth Amboy resulted him being hauled out of bed and severely beaten by thugs dispatched from the machine in NYC.

    Jersey went Republican 1968 thru 1988. The state went blue again starting in 1992.

    The point I was making above was that I suspect watching donations (as a measure of voters who are motivated to come out on election day) is showing a very slight Romney advantage. This is a huge switch from 2008.

    An additional observation from a deep blue area: In 2008 you couldn’t walk a block without seeing a flood of Obama posters and bumper stickers. Big change this time around. The current NJ Senator’s posters at the local Dem headquarters original posters didn’t even have Obama’s name. I have counted a total of two Obama 2012 bumper stickers. Both were on cars with lots of AFL-CIO stickers. If the deep blue areas (I-95 corridor) have a low turnout, NJ will likely swing red this year.

    “No it was Degrasse and Rochambeau.”

    You need to stop propagating this insidious myth that you no doubt erroneously learned during your English schooling which was quite understandably inferior when it comes to teaching the history of the American War of Independence. While the above mentioned men commanded troops at the final defeat of Cornwallis the overwhelmingly most influential commander and the one who contributed most mightily to the British defeat in the Southern Colonies was General Nathaniel Greene.

    After distinguishing himself in the North not least as Washington’s Quartermaster General at Valley Forge he was sent by Congress at Washington’s request to the Carolinas in 1880 in order to co-ordinate the Patriot irregulars there. Although severely outnumbered by the British he brilliantly outmaneuvered Cornwallis’s forces strategically and ultimately sent them packing to Virginia.

    From Wiki:
    “He was greatly assisted by able subordinates, including the Polish engineer, Tadeusz Ko?ciuszko, the brilliant cavalry officers, Henry (“Light-Horse Harry”) Lee and William Washington, and the partisan leaders, Thomas Sumter, Andrew Pickens, Elijah Clarke, and Francis Marion. In the end Greene and his forces liberated the southern states from British control. When the Treaty of Paris was signed ending the war British forces controlled a couple of southern coastal cities while Greene controlled the rest.”

  17. Very interesting about New Jersey, H_I_L_N. Truly “the Garden State” long ago, very good land and situation for fruit and produce farming. The southern part was originally Quaker led and I think related closely to Penn’s colony.
