Romney leading between 3-5 points in New Hampshire Bellwether Towns — Suffolk Polling (Nov 4)

DISCLAIMER:  This is NOT today’s exit polling data.  The poll was conducted Nov 1 -4 and published Nov 5.

Suffolk polling takes it a step further and tracks the preferences of Battleground Towns Epping and Milford in New Hampshire and find Mitt Romney with slight leads:

Two New Hampshire towns, Epping and Milford, have mirrored the statewide New Hampshire vote in four out of four presidential elections going back to 1996. In Milford, Romney led Obama 51 percent to 46 percent and in Epping, a closer bellwether, Romney led Obama 49 percent to 47 percent.

Below is a comparison of which presidential candidate won in New Hampshire statewide and the comparative votes of Epping and Milford:

A lot of excitement has surrounded the Romney campaign following the announced Battleground state bus tour. Specific dates and details were hard to come by but I have pieced much of it together. I expect to update this post as details emerge.

Romney will be on the Oval here on Friday for what is being billed as an invitation-only ice cream social. Getting an invitation, however, seems easy. According to Milford Police Chief Fred Douglas, the Romney group is slated to arrive on the Oval sometime between 1:30 and 2 p.m. The email invitation sent out by the Romney campaign indicated that “doors” will open to the Oval park area at 1 p.m. and that the social would start at 2.
