(Newser) – Mitt Romney picked up 3 points overnight to tie Republican rival John McCain at 30%, just three days before the Florida primary, according to the Reuters/C-Span/Zogby tracking poll. Reuters reports that Mike Huckabee picked up 4 points to take over a distant third. Rudy Giuliani, who has been campaigning vigorously in Florida after largely ignoring all previous contests, slid to fourth by losing 2 points.

"This is a two-man race. It's all coming down to McCain versus Romney," said pollster John Zogby. McCain has already won in South Carolina and Romney in Michigan and Nevada. The Florida winner is expected to benefit from momentum heading into the Feb. 5 Super Tuesday voting, with Republican contests in 22 states.
