     I am a bit surprised by Romney's performance in this poll, as I understood him to be persona non gratta in Massachusetts following his stint as Governor. It doesn't matter, though; Obama wins the state easily regardless.

I think the real focus of the poll was probably meant to be the Scott Brown numbers.

Easy democratic hold, of course.

I thought he was hated (well, he is, but not to the degree I thought). Perhaps it is an outlier, but with the other numbers seem accurate. I assumed that he would be only slightly above the other three.

favorability / unfavorability among Republicans only:

Gingrich 49% / 33%
Huckabee 50% / 32%
Palin 56% / 38%
Romney 75% / 14%

Also, only 67% of Republicans favor Palin in a hypothetical Obama-Palin matchup, with 15% for Obama and 18% undecided.  Definitely different from results in other states.  But then this is both Romney's home state and a solidly Democratic state, so that shouldn't come as a surprise.

Hmmm. So perhaps the Republican base in Massachusetts doesn't dislike him as much as people think. Of course with the rest of the Republican field being either Fundamentalist Tea Party types, or very dull, Romney is probably going to become the Northeast favorite son candidate in the primaries.

Interesting that Romney is doing so well. I know it's his home state but from what I have heard he was very unpopular when he left office.

Well, -11% favorability isn't anything to brag about.  He *is* unpopular in MA, but markedly more popular than most other national Republicans, it seems.

Not relative to the average Republican. About 50% of MA hates Romney, about 40% thinks he walks on water, and about 10% have forgotten he was governor.

I love how Obama's already past the 60% mark with Palin, and it's still 2 years until the election.
