CONCORD, N.H., Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Mitt Romney lost ground in a Suffolk University poll released Monday but it indicated he still should win the New Hampshire primary.

Although Romney, who owns a vacation home in New Hampshire and was governor of neighboring Massachusetts, dropped 2 percentage points overnight, he still held a 13-point lead at 33 percent heading into Tuesday's primary, results indicate.

He had dropped 10 percentage points from five days ago, when he had the support of 43 percent of likely Republican voters.

Romney is followed by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas at 20 percent, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman at 13 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 11 percent and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania at 10 percent. Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer combined for 3 percent. Twelve percent said they were undecided.

Results are based on a telephone poll of 500 likely voters in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary. The polling was done Saturday and Sunday. The margin of error is 4.4 percentage points.
