Another Poll Shows Huckabee Gains in Virginia

Posted February 12, 2008 at 2:08pm

A new poll by American Research Group poll, conducted Feb.10-11, is showing what some other surveys have found — that Mike Huckabee is on the move in Virginia. John McCain leads him 47 percent to 39 percent with a 4 point margin of error, but that represents a 7 point loss for McCain and a 7 point gain for Huckabee since the Feb.8-9 survey. However, McCain retains a big lead in Maryland, 53 percent to 27 percent.

The ARG poll has Barack Obama leading Clinton in Maryland 55 percent to 38 percent, about the same as in the last survey and consistent with findings of other pollsters. In Virginia, the standings are also about the same as before, Obama ahead 57 percent to 40 percent. Margins of error were 4 percent.
