USA Today: Poll: Clinton, Giuliani widen leads over rivals

Empire State Sen. Hillary Clinton holds a 19-point lead over her Democratic colleague from Illinois, Sen. Barack Obama, while former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has a 16-point advantage among Republicans over Arizona Sen. John McCain. Both have widened their leads in recent weeks.

The telephone survey of 1,006 adults was conducted Friday through Sunday. In hypothetical match-ups, registered voters picked Giuliani over Clinton, 50% to 48%, while Clinton trumped McCain, 50%-47% — all within the poll’s margin of error of 3 percentage points. Giuliani beat Obama by 9 points (52-43), while an Obama-McCain race produced a tie at 48%.

Poll momentum is definitely Rudy’s and what does that mean early?

Campaign money from fundraising.

Money that can be used in the costly media markets of California, New York and Florida which will likely have their primary elections on the same day, Super Tuesday, February 5, 2008.

    Will the North Korea agreement really turn into anything significant? Or is this just another one of Kim Jong Il’s ways of leading us along? I think it is too early to tell. Let me know what you think. There is also a forum on my site.
