McCain and Gallup polls as of Feb. 7-9

Gallup Daily: Tracking Election 2008
Based on daily polling conducted Feb. 7-9, 2008

PRINCETON, NJ -- The Gallup Poll Daily election tracking results show John McCain with 57% of Republican preferences, and Mike Huckabee with 23%. These latest nationwide results from Feb. 7-9 polling among Republicans are based on the first three-day rolling average in which Mitt Romney no longer was listed as a candidate on any of the three days of interviewing.

Romney's vote has now been totally redistributed, and it is clear that McCain has been the beneficiary. Looking back, the Feb. 4-6 rolling average -- the last that included three days of polling before Romney's announcement that he was leaving the race -- showed Romney with 26% of the vote, McCain with 40%, and Huckabee with 21%. Now, with Romney's total down to 0%, McCain has picked up 17 points while Huckabee has gained only 2 points. The rest of Romney's vote went to "other," "don't know," Ron Paul (up 2 points), and Alan Keyes (up 1 point).

Since the close of Gallup polling on Saturday, Huckabee has received favorable press coverage for his good showing in Saturday's GOP voting -- winning Kansas and Louisiana and coming very close to McCain in Washington. Whether this gives Huckabee a bounce in national Republican preferences (including independents who lean Republican) will begin to be answered in Sunday's interviewing and reflected in Monday's report.

Thank you for all of your support. Our Bloggers have become quite literally McCain's entire online presence. We are the basis of the "Grass-Roots" efforts. Our new 'google-groups' launch (you'll see soon) will add to that effort greatly assisting both McCain Victory 08 and the official campaign.

Keep UP The Great Work!!

The ultimate determinant in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas-a trial of spiritual resolve: the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideals to which we are dedicated.
