A national poll — Gallup — looks a bit different than the rest (Rudy 28%, Thompson 19%, McCain 13%, Romney 12% and Huckabee 10%) with Rudy down 6 pts, Thompson up 2 pts, McCain down 5 pts, Romney down 2 pts and Huckabee up 4 pts. In general we have been seeing upward trends for Rudy, McCain and Huckabee and declines for Thompson. Is this an outlier or the first indication of something afoot? In Florida, Mason-Dixon tells the same story as other polls recently: Rudy 36%( up 12 pts), Romney 15% (up 2 pts), Thompson 12% (down 15 pts), McCain 10% ( up 1 pt), Hucakbee 8%(up 2 pts). Rudy is in Florida on Sunday and then on to Texas and Illinois(a February 5 state) next week. Romney is in Nevada today( a poll here has him 8 pts behind Rudy) and then on to Wyoming and Idaho followed by Tuesday and Wednesday in Iowa. Thompson does ABC’s This Week on Sunday and with also be in Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
