Two Interesting Poll Results

First, and to my mind a good thing, Gallup reports that only 18% of American respondents in a recent survey expressed confidence in television news coverage, an all-time low.  From a story at CNSNews, here's an informative graph:

And second, a poll conducted by the Suffolk-Herald indicates that Mitt Romney is the early GOP favorite in the NH primary:
The surprise early frontrunner in New Hampshire’s next GOP presidential primary is the loser of the last White House race – former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who wipes the 2016 field by a more than 2-1 margin, a new Suffolk University-Boston Herald poll reveals.
But the biggest loser in the Suffolk-Herald poll is President Obama, whose approval rating has tumbled to an all-time low in New Hampshire. Just 39 percent of Granite State voters give a thumbs up to Obama’s job performance, while 52 percent disapprove, according to the poll.
