The Cronkite/Eight poll asked 375 Republicans which presidential candidate they were supporting or leaning toward. The poll had a sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points among Republicans. Poll conducted between 1/17 and 1/20
About one in five voters remains undecided, the poll said.
McCain's lead represents a sharp rebound from a statewide poll last fall that put him behind former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. The new poll also suggests that voters are supporting McCain despite the strong distrust of him by many core GOP conservatives in the state and the nation.
