Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is maintaining his huge lead in the New Hampshire Republican primary as campaigning is in full swing in the state, according to new numbers from Suffolk University’s tracking poll. The Iowa result — Romney winning the state’s GOP caucuses narrowly over former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum with Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) right behind — has only marginally affected the results in New Hampshire. Romney continues to lead with 40 percent there, Paul in second with 17 and Santorum has moved to third with 11.
Santorum has passed former Ambassador and Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, both of who have gone down to single digits.
