McCain Battles Romney In Florida Primary

Posted January 25, 2008 at 7:09pm

According to an American Research Group poll released today, John McCain (31 percent) and Mitt Romney (26 percent) are distancing themselves from Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani in Florida. Huckabee is still in third, but he has dropped two percentage points from earlier this week and sits at 15 percent. Giuliani is still the fourth-place candidate and has also lost support since Tuesday’s poll. Giuliani now only has 14 percent in the state where he has focused most of his campaigning so far.

The RNC cut half of Florida’s delegates, leaving the state party with 57, because the chosen primary date violates RNC rules.

The poll, conducted Jan. 23-24 from 600 likely Republican primary voters, has a margin of error of ‘ 4 percentage points.
