Romney’s lead in New Hampshire shrinks (for the fourth day in a row)

in Uncategorized by

The latest Suffolk University tracking poll shows Mitt Romney dropping for the fourth day in a row.

Romney dropped another 4 points overnight to 35%, followed by Ron Paul at 20%, Jon Hunstman at 11%, Newt Gingrich at 9%, Rick Santorum at 8% and Rick Perry at 1%. Another 15% are still undecided.

Said pollster David Paleologos: “It’s a New Hampshire primary, it’s January, and here we go again. Romney’s strategy of running out the clock is costing him margin, Huntsman is still fighting hard and beginning to rally, and New Hampshire is playing contrarian to Rick Santorum, the Iowa Caucus star of a week ago, who has dropped to fifth place.”
