Poll: Huckabee's number 2



Huckabee_2008_florida_tp104 InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion Research 11/25-26 poll of 675 likely Florida Republican voters: Rudy Giuliani (26%); Mike Huckabee (17%); John McCain (13%); Mitt Romney (12%); Fred Thompson (9%); Ron Paul (3%); Duncan Hunter (1%); Tom Tancredo (1%); Undecided (18%).


“Mike Huckabee’s sudden traction in the GOP race is similar to the jolt of publicity Fred Thompson enjoyed when he officially announced his candidacy,” Matt Towery, CEO of InsiderAdvantage and a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate, said in FloridaInsider. “Now Huckabee must take advantage of the opportunity if he is to separate himself from all the other candidates trying to overtake Giuliani. And Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson are now under even more pressure to come up with powerful performances of their own in St. Pete Wednesday,” Towery said.
