New Rasmussen Poll for South Carolina, National Numbers Added

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 10, 2008

Crap! The McCain Surge has reached South Carolina…

  1. John McCain……27%
  2. Mike Huckabee..24%
  3. Mitt Romney…..16%
  4. Fred Thompson.12%
  5. Rudy Giuliani……6%
  6. Ron Paul…………5%

This telephone survey of 785 Likely Republican Primary Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports January 9, 2008. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

I’m guessing the bus loads of canvassers going to South Carolina from the local churches aren’t working to keep Schmuckerbie on top, unless the local American Legion has infiltrated the effort…now THAT would be funny!

**Update** 12.19pm The national numbers are in, and they aren’t pretty!

  1. Huckabee….22% (22)
  2. Romney……18% (19)
  3. McCain……..18% (19)
  4. Giuliani……..10% (9)
  5. Thomspon…10% (12)
  6. Ron Paul…….4% (no data reported)


  1. Clinton…34%
  2. Obama…33%
  3. Edwards..15%

Daily tracking results are collected via nightly telephone surveys and reported on a four-day rolling average basis. Roughly three-quarters of interviews for today’s update were conducted before results from New Hampshire were known. The next update is scheduled for Friday at 11:00 a.m. Each update includes approximately 750 Likely Democratic Primary Voters and 600 Likely Republican Primary Voters. Margin of sampling error for each is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
