McCain continues to lead in IA, NH, and SC

Despite being in the middle of the heated immigration debate (will post on this later this week) that has divided the party, McCain's numbers in the Big 3 remain solid according to the latest ARG poll on May 29. What's even better is that John McCain continues to receive support from independents who are likely Republican primary voters/caucus goers in Iowa (48%), New Hampshire (40%), and South Carolina (41%).

Let's break down the numbers for the top 3 vote-getters in each state (and yes, Fred Thompson is included in each poll).

Iowa: McCain 25%, Giuliani 23%, Romney 16%
New Hampshire: McCain 30%, Romney 23%, Giuliani 21%
South Carolina: McCain 32%, Giuliani 23%, Thompson 13%, Romney 10%
