Poll: McCain winning in S.C.

March 14, 2007

Dan Hoover at Greenville Online Wednesday wrote that, “Arizona Sen. John McCain… remains first in the hearts of his South Carolina countrymen.” Hoover’s statement was based off a Feb. 23-27 poll by the American Research Group which showed McCain at 35 percent to Giuliani’s 28 percent. The poll was taken among 600 likely GOP presidential primary voters in South Carolina and had a margin of error of four percentage points.

And against Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), the top Democratic contender, McCain fared even better:

In ARG’s separate head-to-head match-up of McCain and Clinton it was a 52-32 McCain rout. The poll of 1,200 likely primary voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

What does it mean? Hoover opined:

For second-tier and lower Republicans, the poll wasn’t good news.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney remained mired in the mid-single digits, registering 5 percent, the same as in December. Coming in at 1 percent were former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, U.S. Reps. Duncan Hunter of California and Tom Tancredo of Colorado.
