The latest CNN/WMUR Presidential Poll gives Mitt Romney a 15 point lead in New Hampshire. While we are still early, 6 months from the first primary, Mitt has incredible momentum riding in these early states. Most analysts are already conceding Iowa to Mitt and it now looks like he has a iron grasp on New Hampshire. Naturally, anything can happen and change, and there is a good chance it will. But this is certainly good news for the Romney camp.
Romney: 33% Giuliani: 18% F. Thompson: 13% McCain: 12%
In the Democratic race Hillary also extended her lead but Obama is well within striking distance. It looks to me like Hillary is a fore gone conclusion on the Democratic side, but with Obama’s fundraising and if he can somehow manage to pull out at least one of the first two states it could get interesting. No other Dem candidate has a shot.
Clinton: 33% Obama: 25% Richardson: 10% Edwards: 8% Gore: 8%
How about Richardson leap frogging Edwards! Edwards is done, he is tied with a guy who isn’t (and won’t be) running. Good for Richardson, his hard work is paying off.
