Listen to Friday's Race to '08 audio podcast.
(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee leads a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll of South Carolina Republican primary voters released Friday.
In today's Race to '08 audio podcast, CNN Senior Political Correspondent Candy Crowley talks with CNN Radio's John Lisk about Huckabee's rise to front-runner status in the key southern state.
Listen to Crowley explain Huckabee's South Carolina surge, the role of Christian conservative voters in the state's Republican primary, the addition of a high-level Republican operative to Huckabee's presidential campaign, and whether Huckabee can continue his rise against a well-financed rival like Mitt Romney.

I have become very disenchanted with CNN. They seem to be actively steering election results in concert with the "powers to be" that remain unknown. Before, it seemed they were steering the nation towards Rudy and Hillary. With headlines such as "Huckabee Surges" and "Clinton's lead vanished" – clearly its a subtle attempt to influence the election results. So now, it appears CNN and some other news organizations are steering the election towards Obama and Huckabee – none of whom I support anyway. Its about time you guys report whats actually news. You should stick to what is fact. Clearly, you guys are gaming the polling – and it should be completely outlawed. One minute Huckabee was in the dumps, now he's the leader of the pack.. Anderson Cooper threw so many softballs for that guy during the last debate, sidelined others. This is conspiratorial. I would like to interview you guys on how your report the news and I would like some answers.
