Romney Far Behind in the Carolinas

Sure, polls for 2008 are mostly based on name recognition at this point, but even so, it seems like former governor Mitt Romney has a lot of catching up to do in North Carolina. A recent survey by Public Policy Polling of Raleigh has him at a distant fourth in the Tar Heel State. (via Political Wire)

Rudy Giuliani30%
Newt Gingrich29%
John McCain22%
Mitt Romney6%
All Others13%

That's a little unfair, though, because it's been South Carolina that Romney's been paying attention to, not North Carolina, after all. So, how's Mitt doing there? ARG did a poll in mid-December of South Carolina Republicans.


Ouch. It looks like all those trips to Spartanburg have yet to pay off for the former Gov.
