Iowa Independent: New ARG Poll Shows Huckabee Surging in Iowa

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

New poll numbers from the American Research Group reveal significant
improvement in former Gov. Mike Huckabee's standing in Iowa, bouncing
to 14% support after the Iowa Republican Straw Poll earlier this
month. ARG's polling indicated that Huckabee had the support of only
1% of Iowa Republican caucus-goers last month. While the ARG's likely
caucus-goer screen is notoriously loose, this is undoubtedly good news
for the Huckabee campaign. The poll puts Huckabee in third place in
Iowa, behind Romney at 27% and Giuliani at 17%. Huckabee beats Fred
Thompson (13%), Newt Gingrich (7%), and John McCain (5%). Notably for
Huckabee, Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback and Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo
receive no discernible support in the ARG poll. Ron Paul, on the
other hand, receives 1% support in Iowa.
