POLL: Pew National Primary


A new Pew Research Center national survey (release, results) of 1,430 registered voters (conducted 12/19 through 12/30) finds:

  • Among 471 registered Republicans and those who lean Republican, Sen. John McCain receives 22%, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani 20%, former Gov. Mike Huckabee 17% in a national primary; former Gov. Mitt Romney trails at 12%, former Sen. Fred Thompson at 9%.
  • Among 556 registered Democrats and those who lean Democratic, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (46% to 26%) in a national primary, former Sen. John Edwards trails at 14%.
  • "1,089 respondents were interviewed on a landline telephone, and 341 were interviewed on a cell phone, including 113 who had no landline telephone"
  • All other candidates receive less than five percent each. The margin of sampling error is five percent for both subgroups.

Would it have killed them to do all their interviews after Christmas...this is almost worthless.

News for McCain consistent with positive news in New Hampshire. News for Giuliani consistent with poor polls in Iowa and decline of support in New Hampshire. The National poll will have more interest as we get closer to the Feb. 5 megaprimary. Assuming McCain is still in the top tier at that point, can he raise the money necessary to compete with Romney and Giuliani?

I think all indications show that this is going to be a very interesting primary season indeed.
