Newt Surges in New Hampshire
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.
