Poll: Comments on homosexuality hurt Santorum in NH

Rick Santorum’s surge in New Hampshire polls ended Saturday as a Suffolk University survey found his support plateauing.

The two-day tracking poll found Santorum battling Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman for third place in New Hampshire behind Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.

Romney, the longtime front-runner in New Hampshire, scored 39 percent support, according to Suffolk’s survey of likely Republican primary voters. Paul is in second with 17 percent.

Gingrich, who has opted for a more aggressive campaign message, earned 10 percent support, while Huntsman and Santorum are tied with 9 percent.

Coming off a virtual tie in the Iowa caucuses, the Suffolk poll found that Santorum’s momentum may have been hurt by a contentious appearance at a college event in Concord, New Hampshire, on Thursday.
