One Republican Frontrunner Almost Tied with Senator Obama; the Other Still Trails
For the first time in several weeks at least, there’s a major split in how well the Republican Presidential frontrunners are doing against one of the major Democratic candidates as measured by Rasmussen’s head-to-head polling (survey conducted August 6-7)…
- Rudy Giuliani 43%
- Barack Obama 44%
- Fred Thompson 39%
- Barack Obama 46%
- Was it the invade Pakistan comment, or is it just a generic wearing-out of his freshness that’s causing Obama to lose support to the GOP frontrunner with more executive experience?
- If Obama loses the electability argument, he’s going to get crushed by the Clinton machine.
- This result is a sign that Fred Thompson has pushed the non-candidacy phase of his candidacy as far as is useful.
