TIME Poll: Giuliani’s Lead Widens

According to the new TIME poll, Giuliani now leads his closest rival for the Republican nomination, Senator John McCain of Arizona, by 14 points (38% to 24%) among registered Republicans and those who are leaning toward the G.O.P. In January, a TIME poll showed McCain ahead by 4 points — a startling swing of 18 points.

The core of Giuliani’s strength is in the Northeast, where he has a 50% to 23% advantage over McCain. But even in the West, he leads McCain by 5 points. The poll, conducted for Time by Schulman, Ronca & Bucuvalas Public Affairs (SRBI), surveyed 1,144 registered voters by phone from Feb. 23-26. It has a margin of error of +/-3 percentage points.

The poll is here:

Third among the Republicans in Time’s poll, with 12%, was former House Speaker Newt Gingrich; former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was at 7%. The rest of the Republican field polled in the very low single digits. If the G.O.P. field were limited to Giuliani, McCain and Romney, the former mayor would have a slightly more commanding lead, 49% to McCain’s 30%, with Romney at 12%.

Is this one of the reasons that Mitt Romney is WEAKLY attacking the Mayor?

You betcha……

Now, will McCain join in the mud?

He has a track record of it – remember South Carolina in 2000?

But Flap again reminds the candidates of the GOP’s 11th Commandment:

“Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican.”

The favorability ratings:

And in the silly poll categories:

Rudy Giuliani is the presidential candidate that most voters say would:

* Do the best at a speed dating event (16% say Giuliani, with Obama coming in second at 13% and Clinton in third at 12%);
* Be the best boss to work for (18% say Giuliani with Obama coming in second at 16% and Clinton in third at 14%).

However, most voters say that Hillary Clinton (19%) would be the best teammate on the TV show The Apprentice with Giuliani in second at 14% and Obama in third at 11%.

Stay tuned……
