According to the new poll Newt is in second behind Mitt.
The survey, conducted by Magellan Strategies for the website NH Journal, had Gingrich at 27 percent – only 2 points back from Mitt Romney and within the 3.6 percentage point margin of error.
Romney has long coasted in the Granite State and drew 40 percent of the vote in a Bloomberg poll out earlier this week. That poll was conducted Nov. 10-12, while the automated Magellan survey was taken Nov. 15-16, as the Gingrich campaign drew the most intense media coverage it’s received in months. Whether this is a genuine shift in the polls or statistical anomaly remains to be seen.
