|Romney is kicking ass and packing fudge in New Hampshire.|
Question: Is Rick Perry fading?
Several recent post-debate polls have shown serious slippage for Texas Governor Rick Perry. Now in a new poll Governor Mitt Romney is crushing Perry and the Republican field in New Hampshire.
The survey has Rick Perry badly trailing in fourth place, reports the Washington Times.
Romney is 27 percentage points ahead of his nearest presidential nomination rival, Ron Paul, in the poll released late Wednesday night.
Though the front-runner in national polls, Governor Perry is a distant fourth in the Sept. 18-20 David Paleologos survey for Suffolk University and 7News.
41% - Mitt Romney
14% - Ron Paul
10% - John Huntsman
8% - Rick Perry
The poll, which has a plus-or-minus 4.9 percentage point margin of error, reinforces what political experts have suspected – a close GOP race next year that seesaws between the former Massachusetts governor and the governor of Texas.
