The Tide Is Turning In South Carolina!!

For the past week or so almost every poll has shown John McCain with a lead over Mike Huckabee and the rest of the field in South Carolina. This was of course after his showing in New Hampshire. The polls that have been released after Michigan (but with polls done before that point) also have shown Senator McCain leading in South Carolina. We now have the first poll taken in South Carolina after Michigan and we have a dead heat!

Rasmussen SC GOP Primary
:

John McCain – 24% (-4)
Mike Huckabee – 24% (+5)
Mitt Romney – 18% (+1)
Fred Thompson – 16%
Ron Paul – 5%
Rudy Giuliani – 3% (-2)

There are also two other major developments in the state today. Mitt Romney (despite his win in Michigan) has pulled out, according to National Review Online. He is headed out to Nevada and then to Florida on Saturday night. The other major development is the Huckabee endorsement by SC’s Lt. Governor Bauer. This is huge! He is popular in SC, especially with the older folks. That might eat into McCain’s support. There’s a new poll from MSNBC/McClatchy this afternoon in about an hour. Let’s see where we stand there too.
