Rasmussen Reports: Election 2008: Giuliani 52% Clinton 43%
In a match-up between the early 2008 frontrunners, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) leads New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) 52% to 43%. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds Giuliani’s lead growing in recent months. His current nine-point advantage is up from a six point lead in January and a four-point lead in December.
Giuliani has solidified his title as the most popular candidate of Election 2008—his favorability ratings have inched back up to 70% (see summary for all Republican candidates).
Interesting poll as Hillary and Obama have their dust-up. Note that Edwards does better than Hillary.
Is it possible that David Geffen is a better handicapper than the Clinton Cabal?
Now, will Rudy be able to parlay this poll success with the financial donors? According to the New York Post he will be trying.
Clinton is viewed favorably by 50% and unfavorably by 48%. The last four times that Rasmussen Reports has polled on a Giuliani-Clinton race, Clinton’s support has remained unchanged at 43%.
While both candidates draw reasonable levels of support from within their own party, Giuliani has an enormous 64% to 27% advantage over Clinton among unaffiliated voters.
A great poll result for Giuliani.
Will this precipitate movement by Hillary’s folks to go after him?
Probably not with Edwards and Obama in the race. Hillary has her hands full at the moment.
