CNN: Giuliani has double-digit lead over McCain

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has opened up a double-digit lead over Arizona Sen. John McCain in the race for the GOP presidential nomination, a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll out Monday indicates.

Thirty-four percent of registered Republicans support Giuliani, while 18 percent support McCain, the poll finds. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are each tied at nine percent in the poll.

In a similar CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll conducted at the end of January, McCain trailed Giuliani by only six percentage points, registering 26 percent to Giuliani’s 34 percent.

The Poll:

The poll, conducted on March 9-11, surveyed 401 registered Republicans or Independents who lean Republican, and carries a margin of error of plus or minus five percentage points.

Giuliani      34%
McCain        18%
Gingrich       9%
Romney         9%
Pataki         3%
Gilmore        2%
Brownback      2%
Hagel          2%
Paul           2%
Huckabee       1%
Tancredo       1%
Thompson       1%

Duncan Hunter had less than one half of one percent.With every week, it looks like the GOP has decided on the front-runner.

    So for now it’s a battle of the RINOs. I’m hoping they begin to knock each other out in their quest for power leaving true conservatives like Sam Brownback to rise to the top. Remember what happened to screamin’ Howard Dean?

    Brownback and the other conservatives need to get their message out so that they’re ready to pick up the pieces when the three media darlings crash and burn. At least that’s what I’m hoping for!

    Won’t happen……Brownback is a great American but is not top tier.
