Giuliani 47% Clinton 44%; Clinton 48% Thompson 44% Friday, August 31, 2007 Advertisment Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani leads New York Senator Hillary Clinton 47% to 44% in the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. A month ago, Giuliani enjoyed a seven-point edge.

In six polls conducted between November 2006 and April of this year, Giuliani was ahead of Clinton each time with margins ranging from two to nine points. The match-up between the frontrunners tightened from May to early July. During that stretch, the two candidates were within a point of each other four times. Clinton led by a single point in a July 10 survey, the only time all year she’s topped Giuliani in a national poll.

However, the last two polls show Giuliani ahead once again.

The latest poll also shows Clinton leading former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson 48% to 44%. Thompson, who will formally announce his candidacy next Thursday, has been closely matched with Clinton in six polls conducted since March. The candidates have been within one point of each other in three of the six polls while Clinton has enjoyed a 3 or 4 point lead in the others.

The point is, polls this early (and the one quoted from Newsweek in 4/79) are not to be trusted.

I loved a comment one of the national anchors (I think it was David Brinkley) said the night of the 1980 election. Back then Republican states were shown in blue.

He said “The map is beginning to look like a suburban swimming pool.” Priceless.

I was only 17, so I missed out on voting, but I was very excited about getting rid of that idiot Carter.

OK, liberals don’t like the idea of having to deal with Fred Thompson and are praying it’s Giuliani the GOP candidate...

It is not just liberals. Any patriot is seriously concerned with any of the declared Democrat candidates taking over the White House, the U.S. Armed Forces, and the judicial nominations. I would much rather have Giuliani defeat Clinton than have Clinton beat Thompson. Still, Thompson has at least as good a chance at beating Clinton as Giuliani; this could turn into another Reagan/Bush vs. Carter/Mondale type of ticket if it became Thompson/Giuliani, or even Romney.

I’m a serious conservative. I’ll support Rudy if he gets the nomination.

Ditto

Excellent!
Thank you!

You find some of the ugliest, and scariest, pics.
I guess given the subject, that might not be so hard to do. ;o)

You are smart to think that way, IMO.

As far as I am concerned they have turned the name “Clinton” into common anathema like Lynch and Boycott, both once fine names.

Trust me, no liberals want Giuliani to be the candidate.
