First Polls Close in New Hampshire, Romney Ties Obama

You've hit on it. Back when Dukakis was destroying Massachusetts, there was a "mass exodus" to NH. They fled to escape the confiscatory MA taxes; the cloying over-governance of the Bay State. And the first thing these "refugees" did when they arrived in NH was to say, "Hey...where are my freebies?" The NH citizens said, "What freebies? We don't do that here." (Hence the vibrant economy--and the NO state income taxes.) The next thing the MA refugees did was to start running for election--and having brought a glut of their compatriots with them on the exodus, they started winning. And instituting the very sort of cloying over-governance that destroyed their previous homes. They are addicted to government cheese...

Dixville Notch, the sleepy unincorporated in northern New Hampshire, enjoys a historic status as the nation's first precinct to report election day results. And this year, President Obama has tied Mitt Romney, 5-5.

Historically, Dixville Notch has trended heavily Republican, but Barack Obama became the first Democrat to win the small early vote in 2008, defeating John McCain by nine votes.

Dixville Notch's turnout is incredible. The 2010 census found 12 people who lived in the township, 10 of whom were registered voters - and all ten voted.

Stay tuned all day for Townhall election coverage and...
