Unannounced presidential candidate Rick Perry has released what the New Hampshire Journal is calling the video the "first campaign-style digital ad of the 2016 cycle."

"He pays homage to the 'tough, 'durable, 'Live Free or Die spirit of the Granite State and sends a clear message that he intends to campaign extensively in New Hampshire if he – as expected – runs for President," the Journal says.

The Dallas Morning News, meanwhile, points out Perry's campaign is being "thrown into higher gear" with the ad and hiring of staff in early presidential battleground Iowa, where he's stumping today.

He was in New Hampshire last week. But while he's on the trail, a new poll this weekend shows him back in the pack in the early nominating states. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is showing no better.

The NBC News/Marist poll was conducted Feb. 3-10 with a margin of error in each state of 3.1 percent. It showed the GOP race wide open in the early states.

Here are the results on the GOP side. Each candidate's name is followed by their percentage in Iowa, then New Hampshire, then South Carolina:

Mike Huckabee 17% 7% 10%

Jeb Bush 16% 18% 15%

Scott Walker 15% 15% 12%

Chris Christie 9% 13% 6%

Rand Paul 7% 14% 7%

Marco Rubio 6% 6% 4%

Ben Carson 6% 7% 10%

Rick Perry 4% 1% 4%

Ted Cruz 2% 6% 1%

Lindsey Graham 1% 1% 17%

Rick Santorum 5% 1% 3%
