Sienna Poll Shows Rudy Trailing in his home state (Updated)
Bad news for Rudy Giuliani. A new poll conducted by Sienna College has the former New York Mayor trailing John McCain by double digits:
174 Registered Republicans (± 7.4%)
17 Don't know/No opinion
The poll was taken before McCain's big win in South Carolina.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton maintains a big lead in her home state:
311 Registered Democrats (± 5.6%)
19 Dont know/No opinion
The high margin of error makes the poll more of a converation piece than anything else. Nevertheless, the poll reflects all other recent polls that show McCain spurting into the lead. California, Connecticut, and New Jersey all show similar boosts for McCain.
A surprise is expected later today when a Florida poll comes out. We'll update this post later on.
The surprise is a Rasmussen poll from Florida showing Mitt Romney up by 5 over John McCain:
Giuliani desperately needs a win here or he might was well go home. He is still within striking distance but it is looking more and more as if the Republican nomination for president is a two man race between Romney and McCain.
