Following on the heels of the Marist poll a new Gallup/USA poll also has McCain in second. Rudy 34%( up 2 pts.), McCain 18%( up 4 pts), Thompson 17%(down 1 pt.), Romney 14%(up 4) and Huckabee at 6%. On favorables/unfavorable Rudy is 55%-32%, McCain is 47%-34%, Thompson is 29-28%(28% never heard of him), and Romney 28-31%(24% never heard of him). I suspect these “never heard of him” folks are the “never vote” folks. Based on this, Marist and Washington Post/ABC polls several things are clear: Rudy is on a national level in a commanding position and McCain seems have climbed back into second. Soon enough we’ll see if he can make a run at Rudy, get out of Iowa unscathed and make his stand in NH.
