A new Pew poll has McCain leading nationally.
On the eve of the Iowa caucuses, Rudy Giuliani’s once solid lead in nationwide polling of Republican voters has vanished.  The latest nationwide survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press finds about equal levels of support for John McCain (22%), Rudy Giuliani (20%), and Mike Huckabee (17%).
Perhaps more impressive, though is that McCain has gained 5 points among self described "Conservative Republicans" -- since September -- and is now tied for first place among this group with Mike Huckabee:
Huckabee’s gains were strongest among conservative Republicans, where he currently garners as much support at McCain (20%).
