WMUR reports on its latest poll of the New Hampshire Republican primary: 

 The top spot in the latest WMUR/University of New Hampshire poll still belongs to Mitt Romney, but the race for second and third place is very close.

Romney holds a commanding lead with 41 percent of those surveyed saying they'd vote for him in the primary.

Ron Paul is in second with 17 percent. The latest mover is Jon Huntsman, who has jumped four percentage points in the last couple days and is now tied for third with Rick Santorum at 11 percent.

Newt Gingrich is right behind with 8 percent.

The New York Times's Nate Silver projects Romney will receive 39.3 percent of the vote in New Hampshire, Paul 19.4, and Huntsman 15.6. The first in the nation primary is tomorrow.
