Presidential Primary Polling

Here, compiled by, are the latest presidential primary poll results for both parties.

What jumped out at me were the American Research Group’s Nov. 30 results on the Dem side for Iowa and South Carolina.

ARG reports in Iowa Senators Clinton and Obama are in a statistical dead heat, while in South Carolina Clinton leads Obama better than 2-1.

But if Obama wins Iowa’s Jan. 3 “caucus race” or even runs Clinton a close second there, he’ll get a big bounce, especially in South Carolina, with its large black population.

South Carolina Dems don’t vote until Jan. 26.

Things may get very tough for Clinton in the Palmetto state.
