Results of SurveyUSA Election Poll #13331
 
VA GOP PRIMARY POLLING COMPLETED IMMEDIATELY BEFORE ROMNEY DROPS OUT
 
McCain 45%, Romney 22%, Huckabee 20%, Minutes Before GOP Landscape Altered: SurveyUSA was in the middle of polling on Virginia's 02/12/08 Republican primary when news broke that Mitt Romney would withdraw from the contest. SurveyUSA suspended interviews and reports to you here where the GOP contest stood in Virginia at the moment of Romney's withdrawal. SurveyUSA will re-commence interviewing, without Romney, and will endeavor to have new VA opinion poll results for you within 24 hours. Among voters focused on the Economy, McCain leads Romney by 45 points. But among voters focused on Immigration, Romney leads McCain by 36 points. The question: Do Romney's supporters move to Huckabee as a block? Move to McCain as a block? Or split? Research conducted exclusively for WJLA-TV Washington DC, WDBJ-TV Roanoke, and WTVR-TV Richmond.
