AP/Pew Poll: Romney Leading Rudy, McCain

A newly released AP/Pew poll shows Mitt Romney leading Rudy Giuliani and John McCain by double-digits.

The Page: Romney, former governor of next-door Massachusetts and a big ad spender in New Hampshire, is ahead among most categories of Republicans. He and Huckabee are about even among white evangelicals, but these voters make up less than one-fifth of New Hampshire Republicans, a much smaller share than in Iowa or South Carolina. Romney gets more than 10 times the support Huckabee does from non-evangelicals in the state.

"The telephone poll, done by The Associated Press and the Pew Research Center, was conducted Nov. 7-25 and involved interviews with 446 likely Republican voters in New Hampshire. It had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5.5 percentage points."

Mitt Romney: 37%
Rudy Giuliani: 19%
John McCain: 15%
Ron Paul: 9%
Mike Huckabee: 7%

Amazing numbers. Huckabee was only 7% before the last debate and now all the latest polls show he has passed Romney and is even with Guiliani. Amazing what happens when people see what a candidate is really like

These polls are interesting... I read that they are calling 'likely republican voters' with landlines - which means people who voted for Bush in 04 - when he went practically unopposed. They apparently don't do a wonderful job of guaging those who chose not to vote, or those who have registered republican since, or those who are to young to have been eligible in '04, or those who have only a cell phone. It seems that McCain and Ron Paul would have the advantage among those groups.
