Thompson Leading GOP Field in Ga., S.C.

Wednesday, September 12, 2007 11:47 AM

Newly announced presidential candidate Fred Thompson leads his rivals for the Republican nomination in both Georgia and South Carolina, two new polls reveal.

In a poll of likely Georgia voters – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents – by Strategic Vision LLC, Thompson received 32 percent of the vote, followed by Rudy Giuliani with 17 percent. Potential candidate Newt Gingrich got 9 percent, John McCain tallied 8 percent, and Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee each received 6 percent.

“Thompson has significantly increased his lead among Republicans since our June poll,” said David E. Johnson, CEO of Strategic Vision.

“Even more evident is the magnitude of the McCain collapse in Georgia.”

A Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll of likely primary voters in South Carolina showed Thompson ahead of Giuliani by a margin of 26 percent to 23 percent.

But Mitt Romney outpolled Thompson in two other key states. In Iowa, Romney received 28 percent of the vote, while Thompson and Giuliani each got 16 percent, and McCain received 7 percent.

In New Hampshire, Romney was tops with 28 percent of the vote, with Giuliani trailing at 23 percent. McCain was third with 12 percent, followed by Thompson with 11 percent.
