Since a similar poll in November, Romney dropped by 3 percentage points, while Paul gained 5 percentage points, Huntsman picked up 3 percentage points and Gingrich increased by 2 percentage points.
Overall Romney is the consistent leader among likely GOP primary voters in Granite State polling, yet the standing of the other candidates is more fluid.
Forty-six percent of Republican voters said they are still trying to decide who to back in the primary, while 26% said they made up their mind and 28% said they were leaning toward a candidate.
The Globe survey, conducted by the University of New Hampshire, polled 543 likely voters via telephone between Dec. 12 and Dec. 19. It had a sampling error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.
