Florida Poll: Huckabee Up, Thompson Down

A Florida poll we spotted today shows very different fortunes for the Republican candidates likely to be a factor in the Oklahoma presidential primary.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee came out on top in the Sunshine state, with 33 percent of GOP voters indicating support. Huckabee appears to have considerable support in Oklahoma, where his Baptist connection is likely to pay political dividends among conservative Sooner state Republicans.

Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, on the other hand, garnered only 5 percent support in the Florida poll, another sign of his flagging campaign. Earlier Florida polls had shown Thompson among the leaders in Florida.
