South Carolina Spotlight

We can trust FOX News to poll the Republican party, right?

A new FOX News/Opinion Dynamics survey of the Republican race in South Carolina shows John McCain as the new frontrunner.

John McCain 25%
Mike Huckabee 18%
Mitt Romney 17%
Fred Thompson 9%
Rudy Giuliani 5%
Ron Paul 5%

What you need to know about the poll: 500 likely Republican voters surveyed, the margin of error is 4 points. The poll was taken over one evening -- Wednesday night. Some pollsters say a one-night poll is not as accurate as a 2 or 3-day sample, because a greater portion of your sample is able to react to news of the day, other contributing events. About 20% remain undecided.
