As of Tuesday--and therefore before the results of the New Hampshire primary--Mitt Romney continues to hold a very modest lead in South Carolina, according to two polls: A survey by We Ask America reports that Mitt Romney leads the GOP presidential field
with 26%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 21%, Rick Santorum at 13%, Ron
Paul at 8%, Rick Perry at 5% and John Hunstman at 4%. Another 22% are
still undecided. A new Public Policy Polling survey shows Romney at 27%, Gingrich at 23%, Santorum at 18%, Ron Paul at 8%, Rick Perry at 7% and Jon

36%, followed by Newt Gingrich at 24%, Rick Santorum at 16%, Ron Paul at
10%, Rick Perry at 5% and Jon Huntsman at 2%. With more than half of all voters saying they could still change their mind, the race may still be fluid.

With a slew of new polls showing Romney ahead in New Hampshire, PollTrack wonders by how much and who will be his closest challenger. A new poll from Public Policy Polling reports that Mitt Romney has a substantial lead in the Republican presidential
race with 35%, followed by Ron Paul at 18%, Jon Huntsman at 16%, Newt
Gingrich at 12%, Rick Santorum at 11%, Buddy Roemer at 3% and Rick Perry
at 1%. A new survey by WMUR/UNH reports an even great for Romney, with 41%, followed by Paul at 17%, Huntsman at
11%, Santorum at 11%, Gingrich at 8%, Rick Perry at 1% and Buddy Roemer
at 1%. But a Suffolk University tracking poll, released over the weekend, shows Mitt Romney's support dipping for the fourth day in a row. By Sunday, for example, Romney dropped another 4 points overnight to 35%, followed by Ron Paul
at 20%, Jon Hunstman at 11%, Newt Gingrich at 9%, Rick Santorum at 8%
and Rick Perry at 1%. Another 15% remain undecided.
With some polls showing Huntsman gaining momentum (but Santorum loosing steam), the race could end with a closer result than a simple Romney walk. New Hampshire is known for its surprises: Hillary Clinton won the primary in 2008, although Barack Obama came into election day with a lead in virtually every poll. While PollTrack still believes Romney--thus moving him considerably closer to the nomination--will win the New Hampshire Primary, the depth and intensity of his win remains uncertain.

Has Rick Santorum's strong second place showing in Iowa helped him in the upcoming New Hampshire primary? And new poll by CNN suggests the answer may be only marginally, reporting that the Iowa caucus results appear to have changed few minds in New
Hampshire, at least among likely GOP primary voters who watched the
caucus results on Tuesday evening. The poll shows Mitt Romney with a staggering 47% lead, with Ron Paul at 17% and Jon Huntsman at
13%. As for Rick
Santorum: the poll reports a modest, but by no means consequential, bump for him among Iowa caucus-watchers: he's now at 10%, from 5% a month earlier.
