Behind Beside You, Rudy
2008 Republican Presidential Primary
National Poll: Giuliani 24% Thompson 24%
Tuesday, June 12, 2007
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has to share his spot atop the field of Republican Presidential hopefuls this week. The newest face in the race, former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson, is now tied with Giuliani. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds each man earning support from 24% of likely Republican Primary voters. A week ago, Giuliani had a six percentage point lead over Thompson, 23% to 17%.
UPDATE: Just a reminder...
It's doubtful that he'll be toting a saxophone ala Bill Clinton but undeclared presidential candidate Fred Thompson will be in Burbank today to appear on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." The former Tennessee senator has yet to enter the raise but one poll has him statically tied with frontrunner Rudy Giuliani.
