In New Hampshire, the race for the Republican nomination seems a bit like a merry go round these days when it comes to who's in second place, behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Romney still holds a commanding lead in the Granite State, while recent polls showTexas Rep. Ron Paul is his nearest rival, with 17 percent, and former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is in third place.

WBUR political analysts, Democrat Dan Payne and Republican Todd Domke, joined Morning Edition to discuss the latest shifts, and we asked Todd what he makes of Gingrichs's recent surge.
