Gallup Tracking Poll: Support For McCain Has Slipped Some

Posted February 12, 2008 at 2:29pm

The Gallup daily tracking poll says that John McCain’s high of 57 percent in its Feb.7-9 survey has slipped to 52 percent while Mike Huckabee has moved up from 23 percent to 28 percent in the latest Feb.9-11 poll. Ron Paul, who announced today that he would not support McCain, has 5 percent. Huckabee showed increased strength in interviews conducted Monday night. It also should be noted that Huckabee has been creeping up on McCain in today’s Virginia primary, although he still trails by a big margin in Maryland.

Interesting discussion on McCain and Evangelical vote posted over at the Pew Research Center.

Things are pretty much where they were on the Democratic side, where Hillary Clinton leads Barack Obama 45 percent to 44 percent, with a 3 point margin of error.
