  • Among 522 Republicans, former Sen. Fred Thompson (at 17.9%) runs slightly ahead of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Gov. Mitt Romney (both at 16.5%) in a statewide primary; Sen. John McCain trails at 9.2%, former Gov. Mike Huckabee at 5.4%.
  • Among 534 Democrats, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (33% to 22.7%) in a statewide primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 9.6%
  • All other candidates receive less than five percent each.

Andrew:

I just don't trust a poll conducted over a 21 day span.

Paul:

Notwithstanding Andrew's concern, the Democrat numbers are similar to other SC polls the last four weeks. Except for the recent SC ARG poll, Republican numbers are similar also. Clinton appears to be a lock whereas Republican numbers look open to considerable change between now and the primary.
