McCain, Huckabee split S.C. GOP voters, Obama leads Democrats

John McCain and Mike Huckabee are neck and neck heading into Saturday’s Republican primary in South Carolina, where the outcome could hinge on a bloc of undecided evangelical voters, according to a new McClatchy-MSNBC poll. And a little more than week before South Carolina Democrats vote Jan. 26, Barack Obama led Hillary Clinton by 9 points, with John Edwards far behind in his native state. The poll, by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, was taken Monday through Wednesday and has an error margin of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
