The McCain Surge Continues
Gallup reports that Senator McCain's lead over Mitt Romney nationally
is now at 15 points.
The one-night interviews from Jan. 30 -- with Giuliani out of the race -- show a substantial increase in McCain's support, suggesting his lead will likely expand in the coming days. Wednesday night's interviewing also was the first conducted following McCain's win Tuesday in Florida.
Better still is the news that Barack Obama is only four points down to Hillary. This indicates that the Democratic race will almost certainly not be decided on February 5, unlike the GOP contest. Which means McCain will be able to start campaigning and fundraising for the general election, a crucial advantage in what is still shaping up as a very difficult contest for the Republicans.
