(Newser) – New Hampshire's Republican voters aren't too impressed by the party's current crop of candidates for 2012, according to the latest CNN poll. Some 87% of likely primary voters say they have no idea who they'll be voting for early next year, with only 9% leaning toward one candidate. Just 4% say they've definitely made their minds up, and 43% wish somebody else would enter the race.

"The race is likely to take some funny twists and turns between now and primary day," notes CNN polling director Keating Holland. A third of GOP voters said they'd vote for Mitt Romney if the election were held today. No other candidate made it into double figures: 9% said they'd vote for Ron Paul, 7% for Newt Gingrich. Tim Pawlenty and Rudy Giuliani—who hasn't taken any concrete steps toward a 2012 run—polled 6% each.
