Here’s the latest – and final – New Hampshire survey from Public Policy Polling, which has a tracking that runs parallel to the Suffolk University numbers released earlier today.

In short, Mitt Romney is holding steady, per PPP, with 35 percent, while Ron Paul gets 18 percent, Jon Huntsman gets 16 percent, Newt Gingrich gets 12 percent, Rick Santorum is in fifth place with 11 percent, and Buddy Roemer comes in ahead of Rick Perry, 3 percent to 1 percent.

Romney supporters remain the most committed, according to PPP, but Huntsman is now seen as the momentum candidate in their survey at a time when the battle is on for second place:

Even if Huntsman does pull the second place finish though it’s hard to see that translating into much success further down the line. Among actual Republican voters Huntsman finds himself in 5th place at just 11%. But 40% or more of the electorate on Tuesday will be non-Republican and Huntsman’s greatest strength is with Obama voters, among whom he gets 35% to 25% for Paul and 19% for Romney. The problem for him is there won’t likely be another primary where 25% of the voters chose Obama in 2008.
