No one could’ve predicted:
Arizona Sen. John McCain’s lead over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is growing wider as the Republican campaign ends and Election Day dawns, the results of a new Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby telephone two-day tracking poll shows. McCain now has 35% support in Florida and stands four points ahead of Romney. The poll, which surveyed 941 likely Republican voters in Florida on Jan. 27-28, 2008, carries a margin for error of +/-3.3 percentage points.
In what is shaping up as a battle for third place, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are tied at 13% support each and battling for the advantage. Giuliani had sunk much time and campaign treasury into his Florida campaign, to little effect, the survey shows. Months ago, Giuliani led in Florida by a wide margin.
Sigh. I guess Pat Robertson’s endorsement wasn’t quite the game changer Rudy had hoped.
