Candidates rely on a lot of polling. Who's leading? Who's gaining ground? Where are the best places to pick up votes? The News On 6 asked Green Country residents about the upcoming primary elections. News On 6 anchor Omar Villafranca reports Oklahomans will cast their ballots on February 5th.

And, the of the latest Oklahoma Poll shows many people are still undecided.

On Super Tuesday, voters in more than 20 states, including Oklahoma, will head to the polls to cast their ballot in the 2008 Presidential Primary. But, who's leading in Oklahoma?

On the Democratic side, former First Lady and New York Senator Hillary Clinton leads the pack with more than a third of the vote. Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards, who finished a strong second place in the 2004 primary, is again second with 25% of the vote. Illinois Senator Barack Obama is in third place with 15%. The remaining votes are split among five other candidates. However, one-in-five Democratic voters in the state are still undecided.

On the Republican side, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has a double-digit lead in the Sooner State with 29%. Right behind him is Arizona Senator John McCain with 17%. It's a familiar spot for McCain, who took second place behind George Bush in Oklahoma's last Republican primary. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who visited Tulsa earlier this year, is in third place with Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson. A number of Oklahoma Republicans, 22%, have yet to pick a candidate.

The Oklahoma Poll has a 5% margin of error.
