Mitt Romney Leads Herman Cain, Ron Paul in New Hampshire Poll

On Friday, Magellan Strategies/NH Journal released a poll of likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters that found that former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts was well ahead of the rest of the pack of GOP presidential hopefuls in the first primary state.

Romney led the poll with 41 percent. Following his win in the Presidency 5 straw poll in Orlando last month, businessman Herman Cain continues to surge in the polls, placing second with 20 percent. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas took third with 10 percent.

Former Gov. Jon Huntsman of Utah, who moved his campaign headquarters to New Hampshire, tied with former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich for fourth with 6 percent each. U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota took sixth with 4 percent. Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Gov. Rick Perry of Texas tied for seventh with 2 percent apiece. Former Gov. Gary Johnson of New Mexico garnered 1 percent.

The poll of 736 likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters was conducted Oct. 12-13 and had a margin of error of +/- 3.61 percent.

I'd like to know how these "likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters" were selected. Randomly chosen party members or hand-picked party officials?

Ron Paul is clearly the front-runner in the 2012 Presidental race. Here are the facts, easy for anyone to see.

If Mitt Romney or Herman Cain are the front-runners then were are there supporters?
If these gentlemen are clearly the front-runners then where are thier voters? Are any of them going to come out to vote for their candidates?

Ron Paul has the most actual votes cast thus far for the nomination. These are not some 100 or so "list of privately selected" phone line polls, but actual people going down and casting a REAL vote.
Enjoy what you are about to read... I sure enjoyed putting it together.

I'm switching parties to vote for Ron Paul. I don't trust Cain's 999 plan. I believe it will raise to 303030. He's into raising taxes, not lowering them like Ron Paul. Also, Herman Cain was HEAD of the Federal Reserve in Kansas City, so I doubt he has any criticism at all of it and will want it to run as is. It can't. It's what got our country into financial ruin. But it seems that Ron Paul is the only one who understands this or is willing to fix it. Go to his site at to see how he stands on issues, then, if you agree, donate to his Money Bomb come Oct 19. I'll be donating again, and plan to double the amount I gave last time. It isn't easy, but Ron Paul is worth it. He stands for every single American, not special interests, not Big Government, not politics as usual.

Ron Paul is the only candidate for me after doing extensive research. Research Romney and Cain and I'm sure you won't like what you see. Ron Paul for 2012!

Free market economists and economic policy analysts found all sorts of shortcomings in Cain's 9-9-9 infomercial-like tax plan (see here:’s-9-9-9-plan/), but what should we expect from a former board member of the Federal Reserve?

Gary Johnson is the only candidate campaigning on implementing the Fair Tax, which is exactly what the name implies – fair (visit We need to stop falling for these simple sound bite applause lines that contain no substance. The only solution we keep hearing from Herman Cain is “fix it.” Gov. Johnson is the only candidate offering serious policy prescriptions and common sense solutions, but the establishment press treats him like some fringe guy with ‘crazy’ ideas like balancing the budget.
