Survey USA Poll: Giuliani Beats Opponents in Debate

A poll of 317 viewers watching the debate were asked to rate the performance of the candidates:

Rudy Giuliani 30%
Mitt Romney 12%
John McCain 11%
Jim Gilmore 8%
Duncan Hunter 7%
Sam Brownback 4%
Mike Huckabee 4%
Tom Tancredo 4%
Ron Paul 2%
Tommy Thompson 2%

UPDATE: Drudge report is having an interactive poll, but it does allow for multiple voting, so pretty worthless.



  1. Yea and 12000 have voted online and he’s at 43%
    so believe what you want

    300-11000 just a slight difference

  2. It’s well known that the drudge poll doesn’t have safeguards against cheating. This is a scientific poll.

  3. On the Drudge poll you can vote multiple times. If you read my other posts, I felt that Romney won, but a poll of live people stated differently.

  5. California Republicans only, one might note, in this poll. The general public feels differently, as evidenced on msnbc.com. I couldn’t stand any of those guys. Ron Paul was the only man of principle in this debate, as Mike Gravel was last week.

  6. The MSNBC and the Drudge Poll have a fatal flaw in that you can click lots of times.

    Actually it wasn’t just Republicans which may limit the value of the poll, as it is still for a primary.

    I like Ron Paul, but I disagree with him. Mike Gravel has disturbed me since I was a political babe and I vaguely remembered his antics in the Senate in the 70’s, however, to each his own!

  11. Ron Paul is the only republican candidate worth considering for the office. He walloped the others with his expertise on the history and issues, while the rest tried to kiss up to the cameras and invoke the bull$hit, and unconstitutional “war on terror” and the name and legacy of Ronald Reagan.

    Ron Paul sounded like oen of the founding fathers, NOT a lobbyist’s best friend like all the others. One look at his voting record should convince any true republican that he is the right man for the job.

  12. Whose more likely to vote? The people who participated in the MSNBC poll or the folks that were chosen ‘randomly’?

  13. In the msnbc poll you couldn’t vote twice otherwise i damn sure would have voted for Ron Paul twice. I’m more inclied to go by the msn poll as acurate for that reason even tho they still don’t give him the media coverage he deserves. What gets me is, are the media so stupid that they think their biased opinions aren’t going to infuriate people? It will only help Ron Paul get more votes. I’m sure Ron Paul will win the popular vote regardless of how many delegates are paid off to vote otherwise.

  14. Ron Paul still is at less than 2% nationally.

    Take out the Kool Aid if you think he has a shot.
    That’s not to say that he doesn’t have valid points, he just has no shot.

  15. A candidate like Ron Paul who will actually work for the interests of the american middle class will have no problem gaining voters, whether or not the votes are counted are another issue. The elite of this country, and worldwide, are frightened of ron paul and you know they will do anything they can to keep him out. Ron Paul has a good shot because too many of us are aware there is no difference between a bush or a clinton or a guiliani, they serve the same globalist pieces of trash. WE WANT CHANGE AND WE WILL GET IT.

  16. I keep hearing Ron Paul only has 1 or 2 percent in the polls, what polls are these and how is that possible? Every poll I see shows Ron Paul in first or second. How can people not know who he is? We need to send Ron Paul every cent we can so those who have been so unfortunate as not to know of him can hear and see who he is and what he stands for, he is the only candidate I have seen in my life telling the truth and talking straight, if he isn’t elected president it is because we didn’t help him all we could. This great man has stepped up to the plate as the peoples representative against the big business, big money, big spending candidates and he is being laughed at, we the people are being laughed at, it is time to take our country back into the hands of the people and and send the greedy corporate elite a strong message about the power of the people and the constitution written to protect us from exactly what is going on right now, our liberty is being taken away, our wealth is being stolen, and our children are being enslaved and brainwashed into thinking it is all good. We know the truth, we know what to do, we must all stand united with Ron Paul and the revolution will come and go with out a shot fired, America will be returned to its rightful owners and we can all learn a valuable lesson about responsibility and how easy our freedom can be taken away if we are not vigiliant about protecting it.

  17. I love Ron Paul, he is the only person that will save this country from bankrupcy. But will those in the old-media establishment keep claiming his followers are spamming the online polls when the pollsters keep saying their software is too sophisticated for that.

    Go Ron Paul!!!!!
