Poll Alert: American Research Group IA, NV, NH, & Yes… SC!

I have steadfastly refused to publish an American Research Group poll until they included all of the major candidates in their polling. Well, that time has arrived. These results are truly amazing…

American Research Group, 600 Likely Iowa Republican Caucus Goers, Dec 19th-23, 2006:

Rudy Giuliani 29%

John McCain 24%

Newt Gingrich 19%

Chuck Hagel 7%

Mitt Romney 7%

Sam Brownback 1%

Mike Huckabee 1%

George Pataki -

Duncan Hunter -

Tommy Thompson -

Jim Gilmore -

Undecided 12%

Yes, you read that correctly. Rudy Giuliani is up by 5 pts. on John McCain and Mitt Romney is tied with Chuck Hagel (of course, the margin of error is 4 pts.)

American Research Group, 600 Likely Nevada Republican Caucus Goers, Dec. 19th-23, 2006:

Rudy Giuliani 31%

John McCain 25%

Newt Gingrich 22%

Mitt Romney 4%

Sam Brownback -

Jim Gilmore -

Chuck Hagel -

Mike Huckabee -

Duncan Hunter -

George Pataki -

Tommy Thompson -

Undecided 18%

American Research Group, 600 Likely New Hampshire Republican Primary Voters (79% GOP-21% Independent), Dec 19th-23, 2006:

John McCain 29%

Rudy Giuliani 25%

Newt Gingrich 14%

Mitt Romney 9%

Chuck Hagel 2%

George Pataki 2%

Jim Gilmore 1%

Mike Huckabee 1%

Sam Brownback -

Duncan Hunter -

Tommy Thompson -

Undecided 17%

And now for the big one…

American Research Group, 600 Likely South Carolina Republican Primary Voters, Dec.19th-23, 2006:

John McCain 35%

Rudy Giuliani 28%

Newt Gingrich 15%

Mitt Romney 5%

Mike Huckabee 1%

Jim Gilmore -

Chuck Hagel -

Duncan Hunter-

George Pataki -

Tommy Thompson -

Undecided 16%

The margin of error for all of these polls is 4%. So basically we have Rudy ahead of McCain above the margin of error in Iowa and Nevada. Within the margin of error with McCain in New Hampshire, and down by 7% in SC.

This is the 3rd poll of likely Iowa Republican Caucus goers that shows Rudy leading in Iowa.

It is so easy to see how Rudy is going to win the Republican nomination. He comes in 1st or 2nd in Iowa, upsets McCain in NH, and then uses that momentum to take The Palmetto State. Add solid wins in California, New Jersey, and Florida (who are all currently debating moving their primaries up to the front of the pack) and Rudy is your 2008 Republican nominee.

Surprising that Romney's not breaking single digits anywhere. Even in a Western state like NV where the LDS numbers are substantial (almost 8% of Nevadans are LDS - yet only half are going for Mitt???) and his name is better known out there because of Salt Lake Olympic Committee.

Romney's got a very short window to get serious traction and lots of dough or he'll be the first man out after August's Iowa Straw Polls, a la Lamar Alexander in 99.

Strangely silent over here about the NY Daily News leak article.

SUMMARY: Unless something changes, Clinton will win the Democratic party nomination, Romney (!) will win several states that vote in January, but Super Tuesday (Feb. 5), which includes California and New York (Giuliani strongholds) will probably decide the Republican party nomination (Thompson is an X-factor).

I think Iowa (Jan. 14), Michigan (Jan. 15), South Carolina (Jan. 19/29), Nevada (Jan. 19), New Hampshire (Jan. 22, but could move up), Florida (Jan. 29), California (Feb. 5) and New York (Feb. 5) will likely determine the Presidential candidates for November 2008. The Georgia Republican and Democratic primaries are February 5, 2008, and could be key in the GOP nomination. The Virginia and D.C. Republican and Democratic primaries are February 12, 2008, and may be a factor in the GOP nomination if Super Tuesday doesn't produce a front-runner. The Massachusetts and Texas Republican and Democratic primaries are March 4, 2008.

I have been following the state-by-state polling using a Wikipedia site that collects and tracks such data (sources for all polls are fully attributed). (FYI, I'm the "chart guy" on these sites.) I provide my personal observations of the trends for each race below.

REPUBLICANS
====Iowa====
Romney has a solid 15 point lead on everyone else, and about 30-35% of voters are still undecided.
