Rudy Giuliani’s Road to the White House
Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani, left, speaks local resident Melanie Chase and her son Jordan about her concerns with border security, during a campaign stop at the Sarris candy store in Canonsburg, Pa., Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2007.
Chuck Todd, political director over at NBC News has this piece as to why Rudy continues to be the frontrunner and FAVORITE to win the GOP nomination for President.
So who is the stronger frontrunner for their respective party’s nomination, Hillary Clinton or Rudy Giuliani ? My answer might surprise you. Considering where things are right now in both primary fights, factoring in money, the calendar and certain intangibles, a strong case can be made that Giuliani’s tenuous grip on the frontrunner tag is as strong, if not stronger than Clinton’s.
This may seem nuts to think considering the slew of polls showing Clinton leading and her standing in the early states improving, but remember this campaign is about more than poll standing right now. And don’t get too caught up in the Giuliani poll standing right now since we are in the midst of a Fred Thompson bump. Talk to me in a month if this Thompson tightening continues, but until then, tread carefully.
What Todd should have mentioned is ELECTABILITY. As it becomes clearer that Hillary will be the nominee fro the Democrats, GOP voters will choose a candidate that CAN beat her.
Neither Romney nor Thompson will hold up to the ELECTABILITY TEST and put 50 states except Massachusetts in play.
