Suspense builds among GOP
Made popular 2919 days ago in Politics — A new statewide survey in New Hampshire shows a Democratic contest that has a clear front-runner and a Republican race that doesn't.

Hillary Rodham Clinton holds a 21-percentage point lead over Democratic rival Barack Obama.

But among Republicans, Mitt Romney has an edge that seems increasingly precarious, while Arizona Sen. John McCain has rebounded to a strong third. Romney was backed by 26% of likely primary voters in the Marist Poll, followed by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani at 20% and McCain at 17%. Former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson had 10%.

McCain's support was the most firmly committed of the GOP rivals while Romney's was the softest. More than half of McCain's backers said they strongly supported him, compared with just over a third of Romney's supporters.

Among Democrats, Clinton was at 41%, Obama at 20% and former North Carolina senator John Edwards at 11%.

1. Ron Paul, but he's not really that viable. 2. Mitt Romeny, he's both viable and has good policies.

Based on policies (as you say), Tancredo should be institutionalized

Mike Huckabee is the only candidate who has the fortitude and conviction to defeat Hillary in the election.
