Romney way ahead in NH

Rick Moran
Is it significant he is getting 32% support or is it significant that he is "only" getting 32%? That's Mitt's problem in New Hampshire since he is going for a second bite at the apple and was former governor of next door Massachusetts.

The Hill:


Reflecting his advantage so far in the Granite State, Romney scored high marks from the state's Republicans when it came to opinions about handling of the economy and the budget, as well as his experience and leadership qualities.But perhaps most importantly, primary voters saw Romney as the candidate best-equipped to beat Obama in 2012; 42 percent of Republicans named Romney as the candidate that has the best chance of beating Obama.

For the other candidates in the race, though, there was some silver lining: A whopping 87 percent of Republican primary voters said they had no idea who they'll vote for in next year's primary, meaning the field is still very much fluid.

Ron Paul is 2nd at 9% while Palin comes in at 5%.
