New Hampshire 2012: Romney 50, Obama 43

After supporting George W. Bush in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004 by very slim margins, New Hampshire voted strongly for Barack Obama in 2008 and seemed to be moving heavily towards Democratic Liberalism with no path, or plan for a return to Conservatism.

And then came the 2010 election. Kelly Ayotte was elected overwhelmingly to replace Judd Gregg; Charlie Bass and Frank Guinta reclaimed both House seats for the GOP and Republicans now control the state legislature by near three-to-one margins.

Early 2012 polling results bring even better news for Republicans:

Mitt Romney - 50%
Barack Obama - 43%

The University of New Hampshire surveyed 500+ adults between April 15-26, and the poll also shows that President Obama leads former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee 46-42% and former Minnesota Governor 45-38% with Granite State voters.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney might have the best reason for a Republican voter to support him: he can defeat President Obama soundly.

New Hampshire is coming back to Conservatism, and we should celebrate her ideological rebirth with open arms and much joy.

What say you?
