Romney Surges In New Hampshire

Bringing everyone back to my theory that Mitt Romney will be the GOP standard bearer next year, I give you the latest post-debate CNN poll.

The poll has Romney at 29%, nine points ahead of Rudy Giuliani and John McCain, who are tied at 20%. Fred Thompson comes in next at 11%, while Newt Gingrich comes in a 4%, Ron Paul at 3%, Mike Huckabee and Sam Browback both at 2% and Tom Tancredo at 1%.

Romney is complementing his surge with a major Ad push according to the New York Times.

"He increased his advertising in a huge way last month, spending more than $2
million, much of it on national cable advertisements. This month, he added a run
of television commercials in South Carolina, another early primary. His
aggressiveness this early over the airwaves stands in contrast to his Republican
competitors, who have yet to broadcast any television spots."

I'm in New York and so far the only campaign ads I've seen for ANY Presidential candidate, Democrat or Republican, have been for Mitt Romney.
