Fred's Last Stand: Red truck stuck in fourth in new SC poll

The latest Rasumussen poll in South Carolina shows that former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson's debate performance last week, where he smacked down Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, has hurt the Huckster.

Huckabee is down five points from the pre-debate poll and Thompson is up four points. However, Thompson remains fourth in the race where he is making his last stand.

I had done a search as well and did not find anything. I wondered if I was missing something!
