Mitt Romney Dominates N.H. Poll

Newt who? A poll from the Boston Globe and University of New Hampshire shows that Newt Gingrich may be slipping—and Mitt Romney has claimed a formidable lead in New Hampshire. Among likely Republican voters, Romney has a strong support of 39 percent. In second place are Gingrich and Ron Paul, with 17 percent each. With voters who identify as Republicans, Romney’s even more dominant, taking 46 percent of votes. Gingrich and Paul have 19 and 13 percent, respectively. Among independents, Paul is strong with 36 percent of the vote, while Romney has 25 percent. The numbers, combined with Gingrich’s announcement that missing the Virginia ballot was akin to Pearl Harbor, show signs that Romney may be cementing a position as the GOP frontrunner.
