Gov. Tim Pawlenty's (presumed) presidential ambitions are either dampened or bolstered by a new poll out of New Hampshire.

According to a new WMUR Granite State Poll, 3 percent of likely Republican primary voters would vote for Pawlenty, placing him behind five other GOPers; the field is led by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, supported by 41 percent of the likely voters.

However, as the poll's authors note, the poll's margin of sampling error is huge (6.5 percentage points) and nearly two years out from the New Hampshire primary, 85 percent of likely Republican primary voters say they are still trying to decide who they will eventually vote for in 2012.
