Early Post-Iowa Poll in N.H.: McCain Up, Obama Way Up

Rasmussen has the first post-Iowa New Hampshire poll. Some very interesting findings:

  • Obama opens a 10-point lead over Hillary, 37-27. Edwards is at 19, showing no slippage.
  • McCain leads Romney by five, 31-26
  • Ron Paul is third on the G.O.P. side with 14 percent — ahead of Mike Huckabee and the best he has fared in any state or national poll so far.
The caveats: This was a one day poll, conducted only on Friday, and thus probably not accounting for the full effect of any Iowa bounce.
And Rasmussen’s methodology is considered suspect; they make their name by releasing so many polls. Numbers from more reputable outlets probably won’t come until tomorrow or Monday.
