McCain, according to this, leads in California 41% to
17% for Romney, Rudy at 13% and Huckabee at 10%. What?! Yeah, I
read it a few times to make sure I had it right. (SurveyUSA by the
way was very accurate on SC.) Then I thought
there is a logic here. California is not exactly absorbed by
politics and the candidates, mostly broke as they are, I think have
done limited ads there. So they follow the national news coverage
and polls. McCain is dubbed the frontrunner and is getting
extremely favorable coverage. He also happens to be a familiar and
comfortable choice for many Californians. If someone was looking
for the SC bump this might be it. Now is this a fluke? Will other
Feb. 5 states follow suit? Will it fade if he loses in Florida?
Stay tuned. UPDATE: Not so fast:
Bay Area only.
