Good news for Huckabee (and McCain)


There have been a spate of polls in the last twenty-four hourse. However, after putting them through Samplemiser, there is only one conclusion that you can draw: the race is getting tighter. Despite the millions that Romney has poured into Iowa, he is only leading Huckabee by just over five points. Now might be a good time to bet against ‘Slick Willard’ as contracts on him winning Iowa are trading at an overly optimistic 54.2-56.8. The polls also show McCain narrowing the gap with Giuliani, strongly suggesting that it would be worth his while to put some more effort into the Hawkeye state, and Thompson, who will need to decided whether he actually wants to be President or not. The full results are: Romney 26.77 Huckabee 21.14 Giuliani 13.1 Thompson 10.7 McCain 8.22 and Paul 3.82.
