Is there Hucka-surge in the South on Election Day?

Compiled from InsiderAdvantage and Southern Political Report staff

February 5, 2008Mike Huckabee is making a furious charge in some Deep South states, and his efforts are showing up late in our polls. Whether he has run out of time, or whether he is about to pave yet another hairpin turn on the road to the White House will be known in a matter of hours. Our Monday InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion Research polls show Huckabee pulling even with John McCain in Georgia, and surging into the lead in Alabama.

Here are the overnight Georgia numbers: 

Mike Huckabee 32%
John McCain 32%
Mitt Romney 29%
Ron Paul 3%
Other 1%
Undecided 3%

The poll surveyed 1,212 likely voters in today’s Georgia Republican presidential primary. The margin of error is 2.7%. All data have been weighted for age, race, gender and party affiliation.

Here are the Alabama numbers: 

Mike Huckabee 38%
John McCain 29%
Mitt Romney 20%
Ron Paul 6%
Other 1%
Undecided 6%

The poll surveyed 566 likely voters in today’s Alabama Republican presidential primary. The margin of error is 3.8%. All data have been weighted for age, race, gender and party affiliation. 

Also, the Alabama Democratic primary has become too close to call. Following a rough trend across the nation, an earlier lead for Hillary Clinton has dwindled by the day, and now Obama has nosed into a small lead.  

Our Monday night poll ended up:

Barack Obama 45%
Hillary Clinton 43%
Other 3%
Undecided 9%

The poll surveyed 435 likely voters in today’s Alabama Democratic presidential primary. The margin of error is 4.5%. All data have been weighted for age, race, gender and party affiliation.
