Romney surges against McCain in Georgia; Obama gains on Hillary in Alabama
Compiled from InsiderAdvantage and Southern Political Report staff
February 4, 2008 — The Georgia Republican presidential primary race could break either way. John McCain has a miniscule lead over Mitt Romney with one day until the election. Romney is pounding the campaign pavement in Georgia today, while McCain has left for greener or browner pastures far away. InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion Research will poll the race a final time Monday night.
Our Sunday night poll showed this:
The poll sampled 465 likely voters in the Feb. 5 Georgia Republican primary, for a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5%. The poll was conducted Feb.3. The data have been weighted for age, race, gender and political affiliation.
Also Sunday night, we polled the Alabama Democratic primary race. The poll came out:
Obama has surged here in the past days, as he seems to generally be doing all over America. The value of an Obama “upset in Alabama – as measured by Clinton’s lead last week – would be less the delegates gained and more the sense of exuberant momentum that much national media seem to be making their overall message about the Democratic race. In Alabama on Tuesday, it could go either way.
