Real Clear Politics has released a poll which shows that America’s Mayor is favored by all of the candidates in the Democratic Party field. Mr. Giuliani’s aggregate lead over Senator’s Clinton and Obama and former Senator Edwards range from 4% to 5%. The only outlier seems to be Zogby’s poll which has Senator Obama with a 6% edge over the former mayor of NYC.
Senator McCain also is faring well against the Democratic contenders with Obama nudging out the Arizona Senator by 0.2% and with former Senator Edwards lagging 2.3% behind. All of these trends must be troubling for the Arizona Senator, who is also trailing behind Mayor Giuliani.
The worst news seems to be for Mitt Romney who is being clobbered by all three Democratic candidates. While Romney may score high marks with some elements of the base, the former Massachusetts Governor trails from a range of 11% , 16% and 18%. I would suspect that Romney’s campaign, which is not eliciting much excitement, may not make it in a viable state to the primaries.
