Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney may trail former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Senator John McCain in the national polls, but he is seizing the advantage in the early states that count. Recent polls give Romney the number one slot in the Iowa Caucus and in the New Hampshire Primary. He's been to Iowa eleven times and has made eight trips to New Hampshire. Romney has also shelled out four million dollars in ads in these states.
As for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, she seems to be gaining momentum. According to a USA Today/Gallup Poll, Clinton has regained a double-digit lead over Illinois Senator Barack Obama. If the Democratic contest came down to Clinton or Obama, Democrats would choose Clinton, 53%-42%.
