Mitt Romney is still way ahead in New Hampshire.
A Public Policy Polling survey finds Romney is at 35%, followed by 19% for Ron Paul, 17% for Newt Gingrich and 13% for Jon Huntsman. No other candidate reaches double digits.
Surprisingly, Romney is winning Tea Party support there, leading Paul 29-21%. Romney is also leading among other groups as well.
He's getting a full 50% of the vote with seniors, who will be a significant part of the vote. Voters think he has run the strongest campaign in the state (by a 35-12 margin over Paul), that he has the best chance of defeating Barack Obama (by a 38-14 margin over Gingrich), and there's also a certain feeling of inevitability about his victory in New Hampshire. 41% think he will win the state's primary to 12% for Gingrich with no one else in double digits.
Huntsman's worked his way into double digits in New Hampshire but there's not much evidence he can continue to build on his support. The main group he's doing well with is the 21% of likely primary voters who report having voted for Barack Obama in 2008, where he has a 35-24 lead over Paul with Romney at 18%. But he's at only 8% with actual Republican voters, he's only the second choice for 10% of primary voters, and his favorability rating is still under 50% at 47/34. None of that speaks to his having much of a chance to catch up with Romney.
