In Florida. Rudy 26%, Huckabee 17%, McCain 13%, Romney 12% and Thompson 9%.
UPDATE: Given Huckabee is clearly the second place guy in Iowa as well does it make sense for Romney to ignore him in his first “contrast” mailing on social issues? It would seem at some point Romney is going to have to either say “I’m better on social issues” and take value voters away from Huckabee or say “I’m better on everything else” in a Rudy like appeal (politics is filled with irony) but ignoring the elephant in the room seems foolhardy in light of where they stand in the polls.
UPDATE 2: Another Iowa poll showing Huckabee(24%) with in 2 pts of Romney, Rudy in third(14%), then Thompson(10%) and McCain(7%). Thompson’s TV ads do not seem to have pulled him up, at least not yet.
