Huckabee slips to second place among likely GOP voters.
Hillary Rodham Clinton improved her position among Oklahoma’s Democratic voters during the past month, while the Republican side of the presidential primary race remained volatile, the latest Oklahoma Poll indicates.
The survey of 757 likely Oklahoma voters, conducted Jan. 27-30 by SoonerPoll.com for the Tulsa World and KOTV, channel 6, also found that the economy is now the foremost issue among Oklahoma voters as they head to the polls.
While Clinton widened her lead heading into the state’s Tuesday primary, U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona jumped ahead in the GOP race after trailing former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee by double digits just four weeks earlier.
