A new Michigan poll from Rasmussen shows Huckabee catapulting into the front with 21% of the vote (up from 9% in a mid-November poll):
Mike Huckabee’s surging campaign has created a three-way toss-up in Michigan’s Republican Primary. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds Huckabee earning 21% of the vote. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the son of a former Michigan Governor, attracts 20% support while former New York City Mayor is the top choice for 19% of Likely Republican Primary Voters.
Trailing the Michigan frontrunners are Fred Thompson at 9%, John McCain at 8% and Ron Paul at 7%.
As in other states, Huckabee leads all candidates among Evangelical Christians. In Michigan, he attracts 37% of the Evangelical vote. Giuliani is second among these voters with 16% support. Romney attracts just 6% of Evangelical Primary voters, less support than McCain or Thompson.
