Little engine malfunction? Kasich drops 14 points in a single day in New Hampshire Republican Presidential primary polls

Very curious result.  That's why it's best to keep a bigger picture in view.   Kasich's January 4-18 average of 12.3 puts him in 2nd place, well behind Trump's 32.2.

Trump has finished 1st place in every New Hampshire poll since  mid-July 2015.  (38 of 'em as listed by Real Clear Politics)

The behinders in the 1/13-18 CNN/WMUR poll:
  • 6% - Chris Christie, Rand Paul
  • 4% - Carly Fiorina
  • 3% - Ben Carson
  • 1% - Mike Huckabee
  • 0% - Rick Santorum
Other stuff:
  • Most important issue: #1 is foreign policy/national security
    • December 2015 - 50%
    • January 2016 - 34%
Looks as though the Republican candidates need to scare up more boogeymen.
