Running hard, Perry a tough sell in New Hampshire
PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire (Reuters) – White House hopeful Rick Perry has hit New Hampshire hard since kicking off his bid for the Republican nomination, but the tough-talking Texan will struggle to win support in this early-voting state.
A poll done for the New Hampshire Journal this week showed Romney with 36 percent support, Perry debuting strongly at 18 percent and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann at 13 percent.
Can you explain this? Are they different polls?
Is your website just straight up lying about poll numbers? Or did you use a different source?
I will spread the word about this if you are blatantly lying, so please let me know if there’s a better explanation.
The better explanation is that we got the figures wrong in our story due to human error. When the mistake was brought to our attention, we corrected it: GBU Editor
