As in the two televised debates this weekend, Mitt Romney continues to be the target for GOP hopefuls, even as one of the latest polls shows his commanding lead in New Hampshire is eroding slightly.

Newt Gingrich, who polls show is battling it out for third place behind Ron Paul, took to the morning shows to say he hasn’t seen a new campaign film bankrolled by his supporters, which takes aim at Romney’s years as a venture capitalist.

The trailer, out Monday, blasts Romney as a predatory corporate raider and a scavenger. But it’s Jon Huntsman who’s creating the most waves in New Hampshire, bolstered by some stand out moments in those televised debates. One poll out today shows Huntsman surging to second place.

James Pindell, political director for WMUR-TV in Manchester, New Hampshire says Huntsman is the only candidate who could have a breakout moment in New Hampshire.
