NASHUA, N.H. -- The new WMUR/UNH poll of New Hampshire's GOP primary, with 631 interviews, has both Rick Perry and Buddy Roemer registering at 1 percent. I have good news for Perry: He's still slightly ahead. According to Andrew Smith, director of the poll, eight people said they supported Rick Perry. Five people said they supported Buddy Roemer; five said they were for Gary Johnson, who just switched to the Libertarian primary but will remain on the GOP ballot.
Rick Perry is invited to both of this weekend's presidential debates in New Hampshire. They will be the 17th and 18th debates without Roemer.
