A "fiasco," one analyst called it. Another observer called it a "snafu. " In short, the pre-election polls before the New Hampshire primary in 2008 were a disaster.

NEW YORK, June 3 -- New Hampshire this afternoon became the sixth state to allow gay marriage, after Gov. John Lynch (D) signed a revised bill approved by both houses of the legislature. The state senate passed the bill by a vote of 14 to 10, and the house followed later with a vote of 198 to 176. Lynch immediately signed the bill, which included revisions he had insisted upon. The changes give protections from lawsuits for organizations that refuse to participate in same-sex ceremonies on religious grounds.

The report was written by five important moderate Republicans who would like the GOP to be more like themselves.

It's official. Jon Huntsman Jr.'s campaign strategy is New Hampshire or bust. Huntsman , who has gained some traction in recent Granite State polls, will pull up stakes in Florida, moving his campaign headquarters to the first Republican primary state. The move is the clearest sign yet that the former Utah governor and Obama ambassador to China has retrenched from his initial three-state strategy to win the 2012 GOP nomination. Furthermore, a number of Florida staffers were informed...
