DURHAM, N.H (AP) — A new poll shows former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as the early leader in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary.

The WMUR Granite State Poll done by the University of New Hampshire puts Romney well ahead of other possible candidates, but a majority of voters surveyed said they are still trying to decide who they will vote for.

The poll says 40 percent of likely Republican primary voters would support Romney, 10 percent would vote for former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, 7 percent favor Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and 7 percent would back former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Another 6 percent would support former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and 6 percent would vote former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

The poll of 757 randomly selected adults was conducted from Jan. 28 through Feb. 7 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
