PPP Poll: Romney Trails Obama By 9 Points In Massachusetts

Eric Kleefeld | December 3, 2010, 2:21PM

The new survey of Massachusetts from Public Policy Polling (D) shows President Obama continuing to lead various possible Republican challengers in this deep-blue state -- including former Gov. Mitt Romney, who comes the closest to Obama but still trails by a significant margin.

Obama leads Newt Gingrich by 57%-33%; Mike Huckabee by 57%-33%; and extends his lead to 61%-32% against Sarah Palin. Against Romney, who was governor of the state from 2003-2007 -- and did not seek re-election in 2006 in order to run for president in the 2008 cycle -- Obama leads by 52%-43%.

Obama's approval rating in Massachusetts is 55%, with disapproval at 40%. By contrast, Romney's personal favorable rating is only 40%, with 51% viewing him unfavorably. It should be kept in mind that, in his 2008 run, Romney often courted conservative audiences by contrasting his positions with "the most liberal state in the country" (as it was called in one ad) where he'd been governor.

The survey of registered voters has a ±4.4% margin of error. ... usetts.php

Huckabee is doing 2 points better than the New Hampshire winner, electable, maverick, McCain did against Obama in 2008 on election day.

Romney won election just once with 50% of the vote in 2002 (a strong GOP year).

He is trailing that vote by 8% in this poll at a time when Obama is nationally at his weakest.

MASS is not in play. It will almost certainly not be in play in 2012 regardless of the nominee.

"As for us, our days of combat are over. Our swords are rust. Our guns will thunder no more. The vultures that once wheeled over our heads must be buried with their prey. Whatever of glory must be won in the council or the closet, never again in the field. I do not repine. We have shared the incommunicable experience of war; we have felt, we still feel, the passion of life to its top."

By contrast, Romney's personal favorable rating is only 40%, with 51% viewing him unfavorably.

If I am reading this correctly, another big thing to take from this poll:

Romney has a negative 11 favorability rating in the state he used to be the Governor in.

Do we have any favorable/unfavorables from Arkansas(Huckabee), Alaska(Palin) and Georgia(for Newt) for a stark contrast to this?
