Mitt still slipping in New Hampshire, but not fast enough for Huntsman, Paul or Santorum

in Uncategorized by

For the fifth day in a row, the Suffolk University tracking poll finds Mitt Romney has lost ground in New Hampshire, but “lack of movement by second place Ron Paul has insulated a likely Romney victory.”

Romney leads with 33%, followed by Paul at 20%, Jon Huntsman at 13%, Newt Gingrich at 11%, Rick Santorum at 10% while Rick Perry and Buddy Roemer combined for 3%.

Said pollster David Paleologos: “Mitt Romney’s biggest asset is the large number of candidates in this group that are dividing up the remainder of the vote. With just a 33 percent stake, he can control his destiny, so long as the others in his group continue to battle each other. So the more people in the group the merrier for Romney.”
