Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich continues to rise in the polls. A new WMUR/UNH survey of likely voters in the New Hampshire primary shows the former House Speaker has jumped to second place from sixth place a month ago.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leads the tally with 42 percent, his highest score since February 2010. Gingrich follows with 15 percent, up from 6 percent a month ago. Ron Paul places third with 12 percent support, unchanged from a month ago. Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman takes fourth with 8 percent, also unchanged. Georgia businessman Herman Cain dropped to fifth place, from second place a month ago, with 4 percent support. Texas Gov. Rick Perry is tied with Cain.

Then comes Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachman with 2 percent support and former Sen. Rick Santorum with 1 percent support.

To be sure, only 16 percent of respondents say they have decided who will receive their vote. So plenty could change before ballots are actually cast Jan. 10.

This was the first WMUR/UNH poll to leave out former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who garnered 8 percent support days before he officially said he’s staying out of the race. His support may have gravitated completely to Romney, though some of Giuliani’s supporters may have turned to Gingrich too.
