Rasmussen: Mitt Romney up in South Carolina

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney are tied for the lead in South Carolina’s Republican Presidential Primary. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey shows both Huckabee and Romney with 23% of the vote followed by John McCain at 12%, Fred Thompson at 12%, and Rudy Giuliani at 11%. Ron Paul is supported by 5%, Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter by 1% each, and 12% are undecided.

Two weeks ago, Huckabee held a seven-point lead over Romney and Thompson. A month ago, Romney and Thompson were tied for the top spot and Huckabee was nine points behind in fourth place.

Over the past two weeks, Romney has gained five percentage points while Fred Thompson has lost six. McCain gained three points and nobody else moved more than a point or two.
