January 3: Poll Update

The final Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll for Iowa shows Huckabee in the lead by 6 points:

In the Republican race, Mike Huckabee expanded his lead to six points, 31 to 25 percent, over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the one-time leader in Iowa who has attacked Huckabee for his record as Arkansas governor.

Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson is in third place in the Republican race at 11 percent and Arizona Sen. John McCain slipped two points to 10 percent. Texas Rep. Ron Paul also registered 10 percent.
A national Pew Research poll shows a 3-way race between McCain, Huckabee and Giuliani:
On the eve of the Iowa caucuses, Rudy Giuliani’s once solid lead in nationwide polling of Republican voters has vanished. The latest nationwide survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press finds about equal levels of support for John McCain (22%), Rudy Giuliani (20%), and Mike Huckabee (17%).

The poll, conducted Dec. 19-30 among 471 Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters nationwide, finds that Giuliani’s support has slipped 13 points since September. Huckabee has gained 13 points over that period, and McCain – who manyanalysts all but wrote off over the summer – has rebuilt his base nationwide from a low of 16% in September to 22% today.
And a Montana poll shows Huckabee in 1st place:
Huckabee 16
Giuliani 15
Romney 13
Thompson 12
