Rasmussen Reports: 2008 Republican Presidential Primary

The biggest question in the race for the Republican Presidential nomination is whether or not former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson can sustain his warm-up act once he becomes an actual candidate. The actor once did what many politicians could never imagine by walking away from a career in the Senate. Now he is on the verge of doing what few politicians can even dream of by entering a race for the White House on top of the polls for his party’s nomination.

Thompson, preparing to formally announce his candidacy, leads the pack in the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey with 27% support. That gives him a four-point advantage over former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who is currently preferred by 23% of Likely Primary Voters. A week ago, it was Thompson 28% and Giuliani 27%. Two weeks ago, they were tied at 24%. Prior to that time, Giuliani had been on top in every weekly Rasmussen Reports poll for five months.



The questions for today are:

1. What impact will this week’s Senate vote on the illegal immigration bill be on McCain’s campaign? Will it be the coup de grace?

2. Will Fred Thompson be able to sustain his quick rise as top dog in this race?  After all, Fred has NOT even announced his campaign and performed in any debates.

3.  If McCain’s campaign continues to crash and burn will a second tier candidate, like Mike Huckabee gain some traction and challenge Romney for third place?

Stay tuned…….

  1. I’ll accept nothing less than a Fred! candidacy for the Repugs. The others, including Giuliani, are far too entrenched to stanch the flow of true conservatism that the party is hemorrhaging.
