Rudy Giuliani Watch: Latest Fox News Poll Shows Rudy with Double Digit Lead Over McCain
FOX News Poll: Voters Want New Face to Enter 2008 Contest
Opinion Dynamics Corp. conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for FOX News from February 13 to February 14. The poll has a 3-point error margin.
Half of voters (49 percent) say they are hoping there is someone new out there who they have yet to hear about who will enter the presidential contest. Republicans (53 percent) are a bit more interested than Democrats (46 percent) for someone new to come along.
In a head to head GOP primary contest with Senator John McCain, Mayor Giuliani has opened up a LARGE double digit lead:
In test match ups against Democrat candidates Giuliani again leads even if Ralph Nader is added into the mix.
In a test of a couple matchups, Giuliani outperforms the Democratic candidates — even when a third party candidate is added to the mix.
By 45 percent to 39 percent, Giuliani bests Obama, with 16 percent undecided.
As of today, if Nader were to enter the race, it looks like he would hurt Giuliani more than Clinton. In that hypothetical race, Giuliani receives 46 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent, with Nader at 5 percent, which means Giuliani’s lead drops from 9 percentage points in the two-way race to a 6 point edge when Nader is included.
Nader has recently stated publicly that he will consider getting into the race later in the year.
Is Giuliani running away from the GOP field?
Somewhat, but it is early.
When will McCain, Romney and the Democrats start going negative on Rudy?
Probably soon or his campaign may create INEVITABILITY.
