Romney Still Wins Hearts of NH Voters in NH GOP Primary

Mitt Romney is the top Republican presidential contender in the New Hampshire primary. Recent survey results conducted by New Hampshire Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies on Tuesday, August 15th, and Wednesday, August 16th, indicate that Mitt Romney is even a good deal ahead of Rick Perry.

According to the Magellan survey, Mitt Romney received favorable opinions equaling 66 percent, Paul Ryan received favorable opinions of 51 percent and Ron Paul  only received favorable opinions equaling 39 percent.

The voters were asked who they would vote for if the 2012 Republican Presidential primary election were to take place now,  and Mitt Romney received 36 percent of the potential votes, in comparison to Rick Perry's 18 percent. All of the other Republican presidential hopefuls received even less potential votes, with Ron Paul maxing out at 14 percent and Michele Bachmann at only 10 percent.

The New Hampshire voters were also asked if they were familiar with the results of the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa this past weekend, and 86 percent indicated that they were familiar with the poll. Then they were asked what kind of impact the Ames Straw Poll had on their vote for a particular Republican presidential candidate, and only four percent of the New Hampshire folks answered, "a lot."

Perhaps many Republican voters are going to learn their lessons about Mormon bias in the 2008 presidential election. Even though there were top Republican conservative Christians that endorsed Mitt Romney in the 2008 election, the general bias against Mormons, or Latter-Day Saints, on the part of many Christian voters was largely responsible for the fact that former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney, a Latter-Day Saint, never had a chance to actually run against Barack Obama. 

It needs mentioning, though, that several GOP members are hoping for Paul Ryan's entrance into the presidential race, but Paul Ryan has not yet announced whether he intends to run for U.S. President in the 2012 election. Paul Ryan's decision, if it is a yes, is bound to create an interesting twist to the 2012 presidential election plot, at least as far as Republicans are concerned.
