McCain takes top spot in polls; Obama gains on Clinton

Posted: Updated:

John McCain is enjoying a bounce in the national polls, just in time for Michigan's primary.

The GOP presidential hopeful leapt to the front of the pack, following his victory in New Hampshire. Last month, he was clinging to fifth place in a Washington Post/ABC News poll. Now, he's ahead with 28 percent.

Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney are lagging behind with about a fifth of the vote each in that poll.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is still out in front in the polls, but rival Barack Obama is gaining ground with a boost from his Iowa caucus win.

Clinton is seen by voters in the Washington Post-ABC News poll as the strongest leader in the Democratic pool, but Obama is considered the most honest. John Edwards is trailing, with about 11 percent.
