10/20-25. Republican primary voters. ±5%.
So are these the polls Mitt Romney's finally been waiting for? Perhaps. But in each of these four states, the leader at this point in time in 2008 didn't win the primary or caucus in that state. And in two of those states—New Hampshire and Iowa—it was Mitt Romney who was in the lead.
