His fiscally conservative, socially moderate tenure as governor of neighboring Massachusetts once seemed a good match for New Hampshire’s independent and libertarian-leaning electorate. Yet, Romney trails President Barack Obama in polls in New Hampshire as he does in most other presidential battlegrounds despite spending considerable time and money to lock up the state’s four Electoral College votes.
