A New Hampshire poll released Wednesday shows Texas Rep. Ron Paul in third place, the latest poll to show the Texas Republican gaining support in the Granite State.
A Suffolk University/WHDH poll of likely Republican voters shows Mr. Paul trailing former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. Mr. Romney received 36 percent support, while Ms. Bachmann receives 11 percent support.
Mr. Paul, meanwhile, receives the support of 8 percent of likely voters.
The Texas Republican leads former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman. The New Hampshire poll is the latest to show Mr. Paul maintaining support in the first-in-the-nation primary state.
