Huckster no longer tied for 1st place nationally

FOXNEWS Wednesday, December 05, 2007

For the first time, presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has taken the lead among the Republican field in a national poll.

The Rasmussen daily presidential tracking poll released Wednesday showed the former Arkansas governor with 20 percent, compared with Rudy Giuliani at 17 percent. Even though Huckabee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have played strong in early voting states like Iowa, Giuliani has led the field in practically every national poll since the race began.

The Rasmussen poll, an automated survey obtained through nightly phone interviews that is reported on a four-day rolling basis, showed Romney and Arizona Sen. John McCain each with 13 percent. The poll of likely Republican primary voters showed former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, who once held a strong second-place position, with 10 percent.
