Romney Holds Big Lead In New Hampshire Poll


romneyMitt Romney holds a big lead and Herman Cain continues to surge, according to a survey of New Hampshire voters released Friday afternoon.

The latest WMUR Granite State poll shows Romney solidly in first place with 37 percent support, followed by Cain, who is in second place with 12 percent, and Ron Paul, who captured 9 percent. Jon Huntsman is in fourth place with 8 percent.

The New Hampshire survey is the latest to report an uptick in support for Cain after his upset victory at Florida’s Presidency 5 straw poll – and a decline in the fortunes of Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann.

Perry and Newt Gingrich each took 4 percent of the vote. Bachmann and Rick Santorum took 2 percent each.

Long shots Gary Johnson and Buddy Roemer each had less than 1 percent.

Huntsman, who has staked his hopes in New Hampshire, and Cain made the biggest gains in the poll. Both Huntsman and Cain had just 2 percent in WMUR’s July survey.

Bachmann saw the biggest dip in her numbers, with her support dropping 10 points since July, from 12 percent to 2 percent.

The poll revealed that the GOP race for the first-in-the-nation primary state remains fluid. Just as in previous surveys, there is still a huge bloc of undecided voters.

Only 11 percent of those surveyed have definitely decided who they will vote for. Sixty-eight percent say they are still undecided.

The survey of 345 likely GOP voters was conducted Sept. 26-Oct. 6 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.3 percentage points.

  1. by november 2012 it will be president elect Mitt ROMNNEY vice president elect Herman Cain sarah palin secretery of state!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO ROMNNEY CAIN ticket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  2. Romney is the only candidate that can win a national election, only one with a chance of beating Obama, due to Independents. We Independents will not vote for a bible thumping religious fanatic or a tea bagging lunatic or those who ‘s support comes from the same. Perry has been a disaster in the debates and for Texas. You would have to live here to understand.He is a corporate shill for big oil, big pharma(vaccine debacle) and the insurance industry(we now have some of the highest home owners insurance in the nation. We are the highest in the nation in uninsured drivers, without health insurance, highschool dropouts, teenage pregnancies, we are 34th in education and Perry cut 4 billion from education budget(we should go to the bottom),rank 48th in hourly wage rate, with low wges come low or no pensions, annuities, etc. He became wealthy in office and his ties with corporate is yet to be vetted. They have removed the civil rights and labor strife in history from TX public school textbooks, women have to view a sonogram before having an abortion(this is the hypocritical crowd that don’t want the government in their healthcare, only when they don’t like something). He is supported by the religious fanatics and the tea bagging lunatics(the my way or the highway crowd)same group creating the debacle in the house of representatives. They have proved they cannot govern with their no compromise attitude. Our government can’t function with a group like that. We must vote out all baggers and religious fanatics in 2012.Perry will not win a national election.
