McCain is moving up in some polls -up 7 in the Washington Post Poll and his overall trend line looking like he may cross Thompson to climb back into second place in the RCP averages (and handy chart.) State poll averages are a little dicier- he’s fifth in Iowa, third in NH, and fourth in SC, Michigan and Florida. Nevertheless, if Huckabee has an opening in Iowa, McCain’s may be in New Hampshire where he has a window of opportunity to upset expectations as he did in 2000 with the help of Undeclareds( the NH term for Independents).
