Zogby Tracking: McCain Leads in SC

Friday, 18 Jan 2008 08:24 AM

Arizona Sen. John McCain is holding on to his lead in South Carolina as the Republican primary election there approaches, a new Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby three-day telephone tracking poll shows. But the survey also shows former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are closing in on him ahead of Saturday’s vote.

In the latest telephone tracking survey, McCain is holding steady at 29%, while Huckabee wins 22% support for the second day in a row.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney edged up two points to 15% in the latest tracking poll, passing former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, who had 13% support. More than 9% were still undecided. But one-day results from yesterday’s portion of the three-day tracking poll show Huckabee inching up on McCain and Romney making solid gains in the wake of his Michigan victory Tuesday.

Likely voters of different ages had different tastes, the survey shows. Romney led among voters aged 18-29, with 33%. Huckabee was favored by those aged 30 to 49, with 30% of their support. Voters aged 50 to 64 liked McCain best, giving him 33% of their support. McCain also dominated among those over 65, with 42% support. Romney was a distant second among seniors, with 19% support.

Men and women gave support evenly to the two top candidates - McCain won 28% support from men and 29% from women, while Huckabee got 22% from men and 23% from women. Both Romney and Thompson were slightly better liked by men, and more women than men remained undecided, at12% and 7% respectively.
