WMUR Granite State Poll: Mitt Romney Early Frontrunner in NH

With one year remaining before New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation presidential primary, a new poll shows former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney continuing to enjoy his status as the early frontrunner here. Jumping into second place in the latest WMUR Granite State Poll: Rudy Giuliani. Here's how the numbers broke down:

Mitt Romney 40%

Rudy Giuliani 10%

Tim Pawlenty 7%

Mike Huckabee 7%

Newt Gingrich 6%

Sarah Palin 6%

Ron Paul 6%

Donald Trump 3%

Rick Santorum 1%

Haley Barbour 1%

The poll was conducted by the UNH Survey Center and has a margin of error of 3.5%.


  1. Sarah Palin's poor showing only further confirms that her "power" is a myth perpetuated by a fawning media with no basis in reality.

    I'm a little surprised Ron Paul didn't fair better in NH where I assumed libertarians held more sway. Maybe NH's libertarians just don't see Paul as a realistic candidate?

  2. Ron Paul's current standing in the polls is consistent with his showing in the 2008 New Hampshire primary, when he won 8 percent of the vote. If he does run, it will be interesting to see if receives more or less votes this time around. I could see it going either way.
