The three polls all show Romney—who currently holds a slender lead in Iowa—in first. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, is in second place in each of the three surveys, while former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., has received only a modest bump following his surprising surge to a virtual tie for first place in Iowa on Tuesday. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is fading. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who is staking his entire primary campaign on a strong performance in the Granite State, trails badly in each of the polls.
