Establishment favorite and former Federal Reserve insider Herman Cain brazenly lied during last night’s Republican debate when he denied that he had opposed an audit of the Fed, a claim that was proven false within hours by Ron Paul’s campaign team.

Congressman Ron Paul has been placed third in the latest telling poll to emerge from the traditional first primary state of New Hampshire, while Rick Perry could only tie for fifth, seeing his numbers plummet to just 4%.
Harvard University Institute of Politics and New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College poll placed Paul in third with 13% of the vote, making him only one of three candidates to score in double digits.
Herman Cain pulled in 20%, while Mitt Romney led the standings with 38%.
Romney took 23 percent in Iowa followed by Cain with 20 percent. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas placed third with 11 percent while Gov. Rick Perry of Texas and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota -- both of whom had led the pack in past Iowa polls -- were knotted together in fourth place with 10 percent each.
Romney did much better in New Hampshire, taking 44 percent followed by Cain and Paul tied for second with 13 percent. Perry followed with 6 percent and former Gov. Jon Huntsman of Utah took fifth with 5 percent.
AP: Few in New Hampshire paying attention to GOP race. New poll shows only 11 percent have 'definitely' settled on a candidate.Submitted by RatPAC on Mon, 10/10/2011 - 09:40
LONDONDERRY, N.H. — Mitt Romney's grip on New Hampshire may be far less secure than it seems.
Beneath the conventional wisdom, the expectations game and the evolving dynamics of a newly settled GOP presidential field, there lies a stark reality here: Less than 100 days before the nation's first presidential primary election, the state's fickle voters haven't tuned into the race.

Just before the crowd was allowed to take their seats inside the Judd Gregg Auditorium for Monday night's Town Hall forum, Congressman Ron Paul had an understated moment with a small group of fellow veterans, all supporters of Paul for President and his interest in ending the current war.
They had come to publicly endorse Paul's candidacy. They had come, they said, because Paul is the lone voice for sensibility and has a message of truth for a world that has been fractured, in every way, by prolonged war.
This proves Ron Paul is in Second place in New Hampshire!
WHICH IS HUGE NEWS!
UPDATE: Good article from the Boston Globe...
Ron Paul gaining momentum in N.H. primary
September is winding down and that leaves us with about 4 months until primaries begin. Four months can seem like a very long time, but trust me, it'll fly by quickly and before you know it, the primaries will be here. We MUST be prepared. There is no time to waste. As you all know, we have a A LOT riding on this. So, let's look at the rundown of what's coming up:
o February 6 – Confirmed date of the Iowa caucuses
o February 14 – Expected date of New Hampshire primary
o February 18 – Confirmed date of the Nevada caucuses
o February 28 - Confirmed date of the South Carolina primary
* February 28 - Confirmed date of the Arizona primary, in violation of the Republican National Committee rules
* February 28 - Expected date of the Michigan primary, in violation of the Republican National Committee rules
* March 6–31, 2012: Primaries (and other contests) that provide for proportional allocation of delegates to the candidates, and all nonbinding caucuses;
* April 1, 2012 onward: All other contests.
So, the first four primaries are Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
I just realized that it's been awhile since I've seen an Iowa or NH poll,, so I went to RCP to check if I had missed one. Turns out I haven't. The last NH poll was almost a month ago and the last Iowa poll was more than 2 weeks ago.
