I think of all the candidates right now, the one that is the most excited to start each day has to be Huckabee.
Every day pretty well brings bad news for someone...except Huck. (I don’t like him, I’m just commenting on the horse race here). I didn’t think that I would see the day that Giuliani would have to fight him off in Florida. I’ll bet the Giuliani boys are getting a bit nervous right about now.
I realize that NH is dominated by the Boston media market, but I am surprised that it is not possible to buy targeted advertising on local cable providers in NH without also spending money advertising to Boston.
Of course, I am sure the rates on advertising are bid up in NH so much in the next few weeks that the tail is probably wagging the dog by this point.
stick a fork in ‘im.
Looks like the field will soon be Romney, Huckabee and Thompson.
Here is Rasmussen's latest, with change:
Romney 33% (-1 from late November) McCain 18% (+3) Giuliani 15% (0) Huckabee 14% (0)
Here is the Realclearpolitidcs average: Romney 32.0 McCain 18.5 Guliani 16.5 Huckabee 11.0 Thompson 7.0
If you look at their timeline chart, the guy who has tanked the most in NH is . . . Fred, down from over 12% a month ago to 2% in the composite average.
Here is the MI primary composite poll: Guliani 22.5 Romney 20.3 Thompson 12.8 McCain 11.3 Huckabee 10.3
Finally, here is the latest SurveyUSA for FL: Guliani 29 Huckabee 24 Romney 20 McCain 10 Thompson 8
Now, I fail to see a "flatlining" of anyone except Fred. Indeed, he is falling across the board, except for SC; the Huckaboomlet appears to have peaked; and Mitt and Rudy still have their leads in, respectively, NH and FL.
Mr. Giuliani's slide in New York comes hot on the heels of a Rasmussen poll at the end of last week showing him in third place in Florida behind Messrs. Huckabee and Romney after easily leading the field since September.
Ta-ta Rooty it was nice .. wait, no it wasn't.
Anywho, the SS Rooty (ship #911) is sinking fast. His 'win the liberal blue state mega primaries' strategy ain't working. Besides losing FL now, Rooty is also losing in IL per the latest poll.
As to New York, if nominated (God forbid), Rooty goes down in flames to Hill in the general. He's always trailed her, a frigging carpetbagger. And in NJ which he had led, that's gone too now, The Beast beats him in NJ also.
The fact is there isn't a Gore-Kerry Blue State he (cough) 'puts in play', but there's many Red ones he'd lose. If he had an ounce of decency (sarcasm), he'd drop out now.
Rootie Julie Annie is....
An aside: I've never understood the rudybots infatuation and brouhaha with Rooty taking NJ's Electoral College votes while pooh-poohing Hill taking NY's in a cake walk. NJ has 15 stinking votes - 15! .. while NY has 31. That logic escapes me.
Giuliani set up the Feb 5th firewall for a reason. He needs to win on name recognition rather than substance.
By having the races closs together they have less momentum transfer with the ground troops.
Giuliani is a crook who doesn’t stand a chance...his name has been forced down our throats and this country is finally starting to throw him up...good god, the way this country is fed by the media and it’s supposed ‘chosen few’ is ridiculous...the fact someone like hillary is even running for political office says everything about how dumbed down people really are in the masses
honesty has no voice...integrity, reason, logic...these are words for dreamers and ‘nuts’
go back to sleep america...its only the primaries...your living room and beer stash won’t be disturbed...the CFR is the unseen church, the dollar is our imagination gone wild, the war our illogical-indefinite stance on defeating an ‘ism
