Guess Jon Huntsman isn't dead yet. A new poll shows Huntsman is up 6 points in New Hampshire from June, while Mitt Romney still has a big lead.
Politico points to a new Suffolk University poll showing Huntsman now stands at 10%, while Mitt Romney is at 41%, which is a 27-point lead over second-place Ron Paul.
Romney enjoys wide name recognition and has an organization full of veterans of the first-primary state, where he’s bought a home and launched his campaign at the beginning of the summer. But it’s also where Huntsman’s hitched his fortunes, hoping that a combination of intense focus and appeal to the registered independents who can cast ballots in the primary will launch his campaign forward after a slow start.
