Another Poll Says McCain Leads Jersey

Rudy had better win Florida, because he’s gonna need the momentum…

It’s a game of inches in the New Jersey presidential race as Arizona Sen. John McCain gets 29 percent to former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s 26 percent among likely Republican presidential primary voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.  Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has 14 percent, with 9 percent each for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, who dropped out yesterday.
Among Democratic likely primary voters, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Illinois Sen. Barack Obama 49 – 32 percent, with 10 percent for former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards.
This is the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll’s first survey in this election cycle of New Jersey’s likely voters, a more select group than the wider range of registered voters surveyed in prior polls.

On the Democratic side, the Q poll says Obama leads among black Democratic likely primary voters 62 – 27 percent, while Sen. Clinton leads among whites 54 – 23 percent.
