We’re still a couple of years away, but Mitt Romney looks like a clear favorite in the Granite state.
A new Public Policy Poll shows Romney gathering nearly 40% of likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters. None of the other potential candidates broke 15%.
One of the biggest blows to Mitt Romney's hopes for being the 2008 Republican Presidential nominee was his losing the neighboring state of New Hampshire. Right now it doesn't look like that would be a problem for him in a 2012 run. Romney is by far and away the favorite of voters in the state at this very early point.
Romney also has a big lead in a PPP poll in Florida. These results should cement Romney’s status as the early frontrunner for the GOP nomination.
