MANCHESTER - Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman is gaining support in New Hampshire at the right time, days before Tuesday's key primary election, but he still trails front-runner Mitt Romney by a prohibitive margin.

Also on the move in the new poll was former US Senator Rick Santorum, who surged into fourth place from a base of almost no support in the northeastern state.

Shifting voter loyalties come as Republican contenders for their party's nomination to run for US president in November's election square off in two debates over the weekend and stage a whirlwind of campaigning before the New Hampshire primary.

The new poll by American Research Group showed Huntsman, a former US ambassador to China who has staked his hopes on a strong showing in New Hampshire, jumping into second place.
