Washington (CNN) – There's more good news for Mitt Romney in the state of New Hampshire: a new Republican presidential primary poll shows the former Massachusetts governor has a commanding lead over all the other potential 2012 candidates.
According to a new survey from American Research Group, Romney holds a 32-17 percent lead among likely voters over his nearest competitor, businessman Donald Trump. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and Texas Rep. Ron Paul are all at 8 percent.
The ARG poll comes the same day a Dartmouth College survey showed Romney would convincingly beat Obama in the Granite State - the only potential GOP candidate that beats the president in the key campaign state.
The ARG poll surveyed 600 likely New Hampshire GOP voters by telephone between April 16-21 and includes a sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
