Giuliani remains ahead of Clinton and McCain

The latest polling shows that the lead that Giuliani began to build over his Republican rivals at the start of the year is being maintained.  The former Mayor of New York has a 32.8% to 19.2% lead over Senator John McCain, his nearest rival and the long-time favourite, according to RealClearPolitics’ must-bookmark tracker graph.

Senator Clinton enjoys a similar polling advantage over Senator Obama (34.3% to 22.8%) in the race for the Democrat nomination.

Given the unpopularity of President Bush (his average approval rating is just 34.4%) it is noteable that the leading Republican candidate (Giuliani) is an average 5% ahead of the leading Democrat (Clinton) in very early head-to-head surveys.

  1. Andrew Young says:

    I would be interested to see some California / New York / Florida polls for a Giuliani V Clinton race. Giuliani is one Republican who could maybe beat her in the former two.

  2. Mark Bunn says:

    The other Republican who is polling high is Television Actor (From Law and Order), and Former Senator from Kentucky Fred Thompson.
    Polls in Iowa and New Hampshire put him on around 145 and he hasn’t even entered the race yet. He could be a someone from the right who could both of them.

  3. Adam says:

    Giuliani is as yet untested in a full-blown contest. He’s never even fought a gubernational race. His bubble could yet burst.

  4. Denise says:

    Well, so far, he’s got my vote.

  5. Denise says:

    That is, unless another candidate entering the race just sweeps me off my feet.
