Rasmussen Reports: Election 2008: Giuliani 49% Clinton 41%
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) leading New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) 49% to 41% in an early Election 2008 match-up. Those figures are close to the lead voters gave the Mayor in our late February poll. Support for both candidates has dipped slightly since then, and Giuliani no longer crests above 50%. But the new numbers are consistent with the arc we’ve seen since November showing the mayor gradually increasing his advantage.
And in last week’s Rasmussen poll, the Mayor continues to lead in the GOP race for the Republican presidential nomination – leading his nearest competitor Senator John McCain by 21 percentage points.
Hizzoner continues to surge and some negative campaigning has commenced.
Is this campaign shaping up for a Rudy landslide?
