thanks for putting the polls in order

like that, it helps to see the progression. Great news, beautiful to see what's happening: Ron Paul on a steady upward trend and sitting on a solid 20% in New Hampshire! Maybe WE will get some of the last minute surge this time. Romney steadily eroding, with Santorum and Huntsman distantly fighting it out for third...

Sadly, the Grinch wanders in the darkness looking on the ground for crumbs left behind by some of the other competitors...

In a favorable situation, Romney's vote would decline by splitting the vote with the second tier candidates.

For instance, in a hypothetical situation, if Romney were to fall by splitting the votes, Huntsman would gain 4 points and would be at 17%, Gingrich would gain 3 points (with a Todd Palin bump) and would be at 14%, Santorum would gain 3 points and be at 13%. Paul would get 3% of the undecided voters and we would be in another Iowa situation where the vote is: Paul 23%, Romney 23%, Huntsman 17%, Gingrich 14%, and Santorum 13%. Again, this would be optimistic insight.


go Ron

I like these people's polls.

I added Roemer to the list since Suffolk had been doing the same for a while but lately the guy seems to be better than Perry who seems to have given up on the state and going for make or break in South Carolina.
