Romney Leads in NH, Followed by Gingrich, Paul

by Katrina Trinko

Results from Rasmussen poll of likely New Hampshire voters: Mitt Romney (33 percent), Newt Gingrich (22 percent), Ron Paul (18 percent), and Jon Huntsman (10 percent). (Rasmussen only makes publicly available the percentages for candidates polling in the double digits or higher.) 

One scenario that occurs to me looking at this: what happens if Paul wins Iowa and then goes on to finish second in New Hampshire? With his current polling numbers, that’s certainly a possible scenario if Gingrich falls some and/or he rises a bit.
