Some Guy Named Buddy Roemer Leads Perry In New Hampshire

Screen shot of Suffolk University poll results

Former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer is beating Governor Rick Perry among likely Republican voters in New Hampshire, according to the latest Suffolk University tracking poll.

As you can see in the graphic above, Perry garnered one percent support among Granite State GOPers, compared to two percent for Roemer. The poll’s margin of error is 4.4 percent, so it’s basically a wash.

The survey also shows Romney dropping a couple points to 33 percent, but still well in the lead. And the "drop" is actually still within the statistical margin of error. 

With these poll results, it's no surprise to see Perry moving on straight to South Carolina, a state he believes is more in line with his religiously conservative, pro-military views. Perry will be in South Carolina for Tuesday night’s primaries in New Hampshire. KUT’s Ben Philpott will be there with him.
