PPP Polling: Huckabee the top GOP in Virginia

The presidential contest in the state is fairly close, with the top four in a statistical tie. Mike Huckabee leads with 20% to Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin each at 16%, and Newt Gingrich at 14%. Lagging are Ron Paul (8%), Mitch Daniels (7%), and Tim Pawlenty and Haley Barbour (each 4%).

Mitt Romney 58/23/19 (+35)
Sarah Palin 63/29/7 (+34)

Someone else/Undecided 11
PPP surveyed 400 usual Virginia Republican primary voters from February 24th to 27th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.9%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

Huckabee hold his lead in Virginia. I'm waiting to see if Palin can hold hers in Wisconsin before I post my new map coloring in Rhode Island for Romney and South Dakota for Palin (since Thune says he isn't running). I'll probably color in South Carolina for Huckabee since DeMint has said again that he won't be running either. I can always change it back if he changes his mind or of course if a newer poll shows something different. I wish the map let me update instead of having to create a whole new map. Does anyone have a better site that allows updates on the maps?

Romney seems to be doing a lot better in these southern states that many predicted.

What happened to Gingrich and Palin down there?

I'm glad the Romney is holding his own in the south.
