ARG Poll

This poll was taken of likely GOP Primary voters in seven states, from Feb. 2-9, by American Research Group. Governor Romney was the only candidate outside of McCain to poll in double digits (ME, MA, RI) outside of Pataki's 12 points in CT.

3 Caveats:
  • Rudy Giuliani is not in any of the polls.
  • Six of the seven states are in New England, where Mitt has higher name ID than most.
  • He lost in his own home state.
Interesting things to note here:
  • George Allen only registered in 4 states, and no higher than 1%.
  • McCain naturally polled as the front-runner, since he has a nationwide presence.
  • Large numbers (23-40%) of undecideds.
All in all, a good start.
