Romney takes the lead in ‘Live Free or Die’ state

As Mark Twain might say, reports of the death of this campaign have been greatly exaggerated.

Despite a flurry of recent bad press, Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney has claimed a decisive lead over President Barack Obama in the battleground state of New Hampshire, according to a new Rasmussen poll. Among likely voters, according to the survey, Romney has 48 percent of support, compared to Obama’s 45 percent.

While some polls still show Obama ahead by a narrow lead in the swing state, Romney’s growing edge could be a sign of the turning of the tides. New Hampshire broke for Obama by a margin of 9.6 percent in 2008 and picked Democratic challenger John Kerry over then-president George W. Bush in 2004 by less than two percentage points, according to Real Clear Politics averages.

Romney was recently in the state Sept. 7, but New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a top Romney surrogate, has spent significant time there emphasizing the danger of Obama’s pending defense cuts.

Rasmussen delivered more good news to the Romney camp on Wednesday as well: for the fourth consecutive day, Romney leads in polls across the swing states by a narrow one-point margin, 47 percent to 46 percent.
