GO, HUCK, GO!
Eve of VA GOP Primary 2/11/08: Huckabee Closes-In On McCain: Big movement in Virginia following Mike Huckabee's strong showing over the weekend in Louisiana, Kansas and Washington state. On the eve of the Virginia Republican Primary, it's John McCain 48%, Mike Huckabee 37%. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA tracking poll released 72 hours ago, McCain is down 9, Huckabee is up 12. McCain had led by 32, now leads by 11. Among Conservative voters, McCain had led by 21, now trails by 5. Among Pro-Life voters, McCain had led by 20 points, now trails by 6. Among voters in Southeast VA, McCain had led by 28, now trails by 12. Among voters focused on Immigration, McCain had led by 16, now trails by 17. Among voters who attend religious services regularly, McCain had led by 24, now trails by 2.
Oh, man -- they shut down the vote count because they were afraid Huck might win Washington State. What happens if he's on the verge of upsetting Maverick Man in Virginia? Bomb scares? Suspicious white powder found at the state board of elections?
UPDATE: Yeah yeah, I know -- Atrios had this yesterday afternoon. I guess the fact that I didn't know that means that I really have kicked my eight-times-a-day Atrios habit, haven't I? Feels good, actually.
