He was Mr. Teflon for a long time but now Mitt Romney, the long-time Republican frontrunner, is getting pummeled in last clutch weeks before primary voting starts. Former house speaker Newt Gingrich has big leads in the early voting states including Iowa, South Carolina and Florida. But New Hampshire, though, the presumed frontrunner for most of the last year still has an edge.

And Romney was in New Hampshire yesterday to try to shore up that support and recover from a $10,000 debate gaff. Anna Sale is in New Hampshire on the campaign trail and explains more. Sale is a reporter for It's A Free Country, the politics website of Takeaway co-producer WNYC.
