There is some hubbub about Huckabee fading in Michigan, according to one source, but yesterday Strategic Vision released a Michigan poll showing Huckabee effectively tied with Romney and both trailing McCain. The race is still very fluid, since less than a third has definitely chosen a candidate. Strategic Vision also showed strong Huckabee support in Georgia long before the latest AJC poll came out. This new poll shows that Huckabee has expanded the lead he already had last month. Presumably, his win in Iowa was responsible for the increase.
Other interesting numbers from that Michigan poll: 39% of Republicans want out of Iraq within the next six months. More remarkably, two new polls from Florida and New York show Giuliani’s lead in Florida has vanished. He is effectively tied with Huckabee for second there right now. His position in New York has weakened considerably. He and McCain are now statistically tied for the lead in his home state.
