READ: Who Won the New Hampshire 2012 Republican Debate? [POLLS] 

The 2012 GOP debate in New Hampshire is crucial. It is just days away from the state's primary, the first in the country (Iowa's process was a caucus).

Headed into the debate, Romney holds a clear advantage in New Hampshire, polling between 30 to 50 percent. Behind him is Paul, who polls between 10 and 30 percent.

Santorum, who came close to winning the Iowa Republican caucus, is not doing too well in New Hampshire. Santorum's base is evangelicals, which is strong in Iowa. New Hampshire, however, is one of the least religious states in the U.S.

Nationally, Paul and Romney have the most funds, strongest campaign and most credible strategy.
