Ron Paul for President

Some IDIOT on Hannity and Colmes on October 21, 2007, referred to Ron Paul as "certifiably insane", the ONLY reference on this MISERABLE "news show" to Dr. Paul

You MUST see this video of Mark Larsen dressing DOWN Bitch Romney!  A CLASSIC!!

 

When Ron Paul is EXCLUDED from a poll, as he was in three "mainstream media" polls like the WBZ poll, joos like Giuliani get 23% of the vote, pro-anti-abortion Romney gets 23%, and Manchurian candidate McCain gets 15%.  BUT, when Ron Paul IS included, as he was in 14 other objective internet-based polls around the nation[where he received an average of 59% of the vote], the joo is lucky to get 8%, abortionist Romney is lucky to get 10%, and long lost Manchurian candidate McCain is lucky to get ONE PERCENT.

Let’s be candid here.  The news media does NOT represent American public opinion on ANY issue, in ANY manner.  Every mediot is marching to the beat of a drum which is the precise antonym to real American ideals particularly when it comes to the Constitutional principles supported by Dr. Paul.

Not a single one of these CNN “strategists” understood a THING about politics, much less mainstream American opinion.  Schneider and Begala thought Giuliani won the debate but only 11% of their *own* audience agreed with them.  By what process have they been SO MISLED about reality?  How can a tv set make them this STUPID? Holmes was even worse off, picking McCain when 6 TIMES as many out of her own audience picked Ron Paul.

They couldn’t even pick the best one-liners correctly.  Begala struck out twice, picking two candidates who combined ranked almost lower than Ron Paul, Schneider picked McCain who less than 9% agreed with, and Begala picked Tancredo who, while he performed better in this category than McCain, received a quarter as many votes as Ron Paul.

Can it get worse?  Yup.  NONE of these “strategists” picked Giuliani as showing the worst performance, while a third of their audience DID.  In such an important category, Schneider just horsed around by picking Bush who wasn’t even in the debate, Begala picked Thompson who only 10% agreed with, and Holmes picked Romney who only 17% agreed with.

If you set out to intentionally select answers which would be just the opposite of the actual answers, could you do worse than these “strategists”?  It’s hard to imagine how, isn’t it?  Instead of horsing around, Schneider could have decided that the worse performance came from Duncan Hunter or Jim Gilmore or Mike Huckabee, as each of them received less than 2%.  They all three could have voted that the winner of the debate was either Tommy Thompson or Jim Gilmore, as a statistical zero percent selected them in this category.  But as an overall resounding antonym to public opinion, their choices were perfect.

Poll Shows Obama & Edwards Rallying in NH

11/28/2007

With the New Hampshire presidential primaries just six weeks away, Hillary Clinton’s lead over Barack Obama and John Edwards is shrinking, while Republican front-runner Mitt Romney appears secure, according to a 7NEWS-Suffolk University poll.

Likely voters in the Democratic Primary, which includes independents, gave 34 percent support to Hillary Clinton, while 22 percent chose Barack Obama.  Just 12 percent were undecided.  However, in a June 2007 7NEWS/Suffolk University poll, Clinton led Obama by 18 points compared to her 12-point spread today.
     
“If Obama could shave off another six points in the next few weeks, he’ll be well within the margin of error – and John Edwards still has a chance to make it a three-person race," said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center.

Republican primary

Mitt Romney (34 percent) topped Rudy Giuliani (20 percent), followed by John McCain (13 percent), Ron Paul (8 percent), and Mike Huckabee (7 percent), with 14 percent undecided. 

In the June 2007 7NEWS/Suffolk University poll, Romney had led Giuliani by four points, as opposed to fourteen points today.  In the meantime, Fred Thompson, who polled 13 percent support in June, only garnered 2 percent in this poll.

“The dynamics are different on the Republican side,” said Paleologos.  “Romney’s up; Giuliani’s down; McCain’s flat; Thompson is toast; and Ron Paul and Mike Huckabee are trying to break into double digits.”

Another sign of Romney’s strength: When likely Republican voters were asked which Presidential candidate they would trust to drive their children to school, 25 percent picked Romney; 17 percent chose McCain; 9 percent, Huckabee; and only 7 percent indicated Giuliani.

Choices not set in stone

Nearly half of likely voters from both parties said that they may change their minds before Jan. 8, 2008.  Eleven percent were “very likely to change their mind,” and 38 percent were “somewhat likely.”

The poll also reveals some similarities among New Hampshire voters of both parties, such as:

bullet

79 percent opposed driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants

bullet

76 percent believed New Hampshire will have the first presidential primary in 2012

bullet

62 percent said selecting a candidate with similar views on issues was more important than winning the White House

About the poll The 7NEWS-Suffolk University poll was conducted from Nov. 25 to Nov. 27, 2007.  The margin of error is for each party subsample of 300 respondents is +/- 5.65 percent at a 95 percent level of confidence.  The 600 respondent margin of error is +/- 4.00 percent.  All respondents were likely primary voters in the New Hampshire presidential primary on Jan. 8, 2008.  Marginals and 455 pages of cross-tabulation data are available.  For more information, please contact David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, at 781-290-9310.

The amount by which the following ‘Republican Iowa Caucus” is off by so much that it’s criminal.

 

We MUST ask, and we MUST GET ANSWERS, about how they are an order of magnitude off on the Ron Paul figure [an average of 59% for Ron Paul on the above polls, vs. only 5%]!!

 

It’s not internet-based polls which are wrong, or which don’t reflect American public opinion accurately—it’s the jew-controlled “media”polls which are!

 

 

Republican Iowa Caucus

Iowa: Huckabee 28% Romney 25%

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

 

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the Iowa caucus finds former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee with 28% of the vote, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney with 25% support, and everyone else far behind. National frontrunner Rudy Giuliani gets just 12% of the vote in Iowa at this time while former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson is the only other candidate in double digits at 11% (see crosstabs).

Given the margin of error, the challenges of determining the relatively small number of people who will participate in a caucus, and other factors, the race is far too close to call at this point in time. However, the fact that Romney is no longer the clear frontrunner in Iowa reflects a stunning change in the race.

Compared to our prior survey, the trend is unmistakable—Huckabee has gone up and just about everybody else has gone down. Huckabee’s 28% support represents a twelve point increase from a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted earlier in the month. Romney is down four points while Giuliani and Thompson are each down three points from the previous survey. John McCain is down two points and earns just 4% support. Ron Paulhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2.gif picked up a point and is now at the 5% level.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of Evangelical Christians support Hucakbee. That’s more than all the other candidates combined. Romney attracts 16% of the Evangelical vote.

Among those who have participated in the caucuses before, Huckabee attracts 30% support while Romney is at 23%. Among those who have not taken part in the caucuses before, it’s Romney 29% Huckabee 26%.

Overall, Romney is the second choice for 21% of likely caucus participants. Huckabee is the second choice for 16%, Giuliani for 15% and Thompson for 14%.

The field still remains quite fluid. Twelve percent (12%) of likely caucus participants say there is a good chance they could still change their mind while 29% say they might change their mind. Among those who say there is a good chance they might change their mind, Romney is the second choice for 25%, Giuliani for 21%, Thompson for 18%, and Huckabee for 17%.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Huckabee supporters say they are certain to vote for him. Forty-nine percent (49%) of Giuliani’s supporters say the same along with 48% of Romney voters and 46% of those for Thompson.

At the other extreme, 17% of Giuliani supporters say there is a good chance they could change their mind before January 3 arrives. Sixteen percent (16%) of Romney’s backers say the same along with 12% of those for Huckabee and 8% for Thompson.

Among those likely to take part in the Iowa Republican caucuses, Romney is viewed favorably by 77%, Huckabee by 76%, Giuliani by 68%, and Thompson by 71%. Those numbers reflect an eleven point-gain for Huckabee and a six-point decline for Giuliani while impressions of the other candidates is essentially unchanged.

As for unfavorables, just 20% offer a negative assessment of Huckabee. Twenty-one percent (21%) have an unfavorable opinion of Romney, 24% say the same about Thompson, and 30% have a negative opinion of Giuliani.

McCain’s numbers have fallen since the previous Rasmussen Reports survey. Among Republicans likely to participate in the caucus, 54% have a favorable opinion of the Arizona Senator while 44% have an unfavorable view.

Ron Paul is viewed favorably by 39% and unfavorably by 52%.

Highlighting the personal nature of the Iowa caucuses, 44% of those who are likely to participate have seen at least one of the Presidential candidates in person this year.

Forty-six percent (46%) of likely caucus participants think that Romney will win in Iowa this year while 25% think Huckabee will win on January 3. No other candidate reaches double digits.

Thirty-four percent (34%) believe that Romney will ultimately win the GOP nomination. Twenty-four percent (24%) believe Giuliani will represent the GOP in 2008 while 16% think that Huckabee will emerge victorious in the end.

Twenty-five percent (25%) of likely caucus participants identified immigration as the most important voting issue. Twenty-one percent (21%) named national security as their top issue while 18% said the economy was most important and 14% ranked the War in Iraqhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2.gif as the top issue.

While Huckabee has caught Romney in Iowa, the former Massachusetts Governor enjoys a strong lead in New Hampshire, site of the first-in-the-nation Presidential Primary. Rasmussen Reports is polling in New Hampshire this week and will release new results later in the week.

All polling for caucus events presents challenges in determining who is likely to show up and participate. In conducting and analyzing this survey, Rasmussen Reports reviewed results for many possible levels of turnout. While the results varied modestly depending upon the turnout model, the overall dynamic was the same in all cases—Huckabee in the lead with Romney closely behind while Giuliani, and Thompson lagged. See information on screening questions and the sample used in this telephone survey.

This telephone survey of 839 Likely Republican Caucus Participants was conducted by Rasmussen Reports November 26-27, 2007. The margin of sampling error for the is +/- 3.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Republican Presidential Primary

RINDGE, NH

As the 2008 New Hampshire Presidential Primary approaches,

former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney maintains his lead over his Republican

rivals. In March, Senator John McCain and former mayor Rudy Giuliani were the early

front-runners. Following the Republican debate on June 5th, Romney took the lead.

Today, Romney maintains his lead with 30 percent of the vote, while Giuliani trails him

with 23 percent of the vote. John McCain has now dropped to a distant third behind both

candidates (14%), while the latest candidate to enter the race, Senator Fred Thompson,

is well-behind the front-runners with just eight percent of the vote. Although Romney has

a modest lead, 31 percent of likely primary voters are still unsure who will win,

suggesting that the Republican race remains wide open in New Hampshire.

Overview

The findings outlined in this report are based on the latest Franklin Pierce

University / WBZ Poll, conducted by RKM Research and Communication in collaboration

with faculty and student interviewers at Franklin Pierce University. The Franklin Pierce

University / WBZ Poll is sponsored by Franklin Pierce University and WBZ. The project

represents a collaboration that provides Franklin Pierce University students unique

learning opportunities to participate in the polling process and gain real-world experience

working with an independent marketing research firm.

Methodology

The poll is based on interviews with 400 likely Republican Presidential Primary voters.

All respondents interviewed in this study were part of a fully representative sample. The

survey was administered by telephone, September 11 – September 14, 2007. The

survey of 400 respondents has a maximum margin of sampling error of +/- 4.9%.

Democratic Presidential Primary

RINDGE, NH

– As the 2008 New Hampshire Presidential Primary approaches, Senator

Hillary Clinton has maintained a strong lead over her Democratic rivals. In March,

Clinton (32%) held a 7-point lead over her closest challenger, Senator Barack Obama

(25%). In June, following the Democratic debate, Clinton commanded a much larger

number (38%) of Democratic primary voters than Obama (16%). Today, Clinton has

maintained her lead at 36 percent of the vote, twice as much as the support for Obama

(18%). Clinton has also emerged as the inevitable Democratic primary nomination

choice among 61 percent of voters.

Overview

The findings outlined in this report are based on the latest Franklin Pierce

University / WBZ Poll, conducted by RKM Research and Communication in collaboration

with faculty and student interviewers at Franklin Pierce University. The Franklin Pierce

University / WBZ Poll is sponsored by Franklin Pierce University and WBZ. The project

represents a collaboration that provides Franklin Pierce University students unique

Methodology

The poll is based on interviews with 403 likely Democratic Presidential Primary voters.

All respondents interviewed in this study were part of a fully representative sample. The

survey was administered by telephone, September 11 – September 14, 2007. The

survey of 403 respondents has a maximum margin of sampling error of +/- 4.9%.

 

 

Sept. 14, 2007: The "mainstream" NBC/Wall Street Journal, who still hasn't figured out who Ron Paul is, reported the following for the Republican candidates:

32% = Giuliani

26% = Thompson.

14% = McCain

11% = Romney

 

exactly the same time, an MSNBC internet poll reports that Ron Paul get's FIFTY PERCENT of the vote, and the other eight candidates must share the other HALF.  Giuliani seems to be VERY popular with these "expert" talking heads, but he's literally HATED by the people. It's only when Ron Paul is removed from these polls that Faggot Fred Thompson and pro-anti-abortion Romney are OVER-REPRESENTED by 50%, and grumpy John McCain is over-represented by 100% .  It's not just that the "mainstream media" is out of touch with REALITY--it's that they are LIARS and CRIMINALS who "think" they are permitted to hijack and dictate the electoral process.

There's no provision in the U. S. Constitution for this fourth branch of government. It's "we the people", not they-the-jew-controlled-corporate-media, who are given this right, and we the people must *reject* their claims and LIES and CRIMINALITY at all costs.

Paul Money Matters and Meet the Press

horizontal rule

 

By Jeff Freeland
Dec 16, 2007

 


Ron Paul has money, but can he ever capture the heart and soul of the American voter?  Millions of dollars were slammed into the campaign of Paul on Sunday and now the man that is described in various ways as a "fringe candidate" the "Libertarian running as a Republican" to capture that party's nomination is poised with cash to take over and dominate.  Right?

Ron Paul: Money Matters and Meet the Press

Ron Paul: Money Matters and Meet the Press

That may be a stretch.  Ron Paul supporters proudly wear the fringe label but if Dr. Paul wants any attention other than the group that now backs him for president he has to break through to mainstream America.  While this is common sense to most, many Paul supporters argue that it is not necessary, they believe they can capture the presidency by running as an outsider.

***


That won't happen.  The key here is for Paul to take that cash and sell his ideas as mainstream ideas.  But this is a seventy-two year old US Congressman with very little personality and a man that comes across poorly on television.  His one good debate was hosted by the Des Moines Register and it was broadcast during the day on cable.  None of Paul's sound bites made the evening news.

I like a lot of Paul's ideas, and I want them introduced into the political debate.  But now that is going to take some work from the good doctor from Texas.  He has his opportunity next Sunday when he meets with Tim Russert on the NBC Sunday morning show "Meet the Press."  The veteran NBC host will be ready for Paul, will he be ready for Russert?

***


It's time for Paul to take some of that money and hire coaches to get him ready for this interview.  If he bombs here (and I'm talking about with undecided voters and the rest of mainstream America, we all know his supporters will love what he says) he will be labeled a kook and whatever opportunity he has for any type of impact other than his online support.

Russert can destroy Ron Paul, it will be up to the Texan to show up big and not allow that to happen.

Do you know why it didn't happen? 

Out of THOUSANDS on GNN, only ONE agreed with you--MAYBE. 

You're so used to thinking the jewsnews represents mainstream American opinion that you just can't believe how MUCH of a SMALL, TEENY WHEENEY, extremist minority in this country you represent.  Essentially, NOBODY agrees with you. 

Those with eyes to see and ears to hear KNOW that Ron Paul is RIGHT, that the "civil rights act" has been nothing short of A DISASTER, for both Whites and niggers. 

Internet based polls reflect reality, not the jew controlled "news" media.

The Iowa Poll lists Ron Paul at ZERO PERCENT (0%) );

 

BUT!

http://www.emediawire.com/releases/2007/5/emw529315.htm

Popular online web site dedicated to election polls proves that the online support of Ron Paul is legitimate and not the work of spammers.

Washington D.C. (PRWEB) May 29, 2007 -- USAElectionPolls.com ran its first ever straw poll on May 27, 2007. The poll read as follows "Who's Your Republican of Choice?" and the possible choices were Fred Thompson, Ron Paul, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and Mitt Romney.

Of the 342 that participated in the straw poll, Ron Paul received 310 votes (91%).

The authors of USAElectionPolls.com admit that because this is an unscientific poll, there is no correlation between these results and the true feelings of voters in America as a whole.

David Terr of USAElectionPolls.com did want to disprove the commonly held belief that the reason Ron Paul does well in Internet polls is the result of spammers. He says "the users voting in these polls come from all across the United States. Fox News tried to suggest that Ron Paul's popularity was confined to a group of friends in a dorm room who just click on every poll. It could not be further from the truth."

The users of USAElectionPolls.com will be resetting their polls on a daily basis. It is expected that once the whole electorate becomes interested in the 2008 election, Ron Paul will drop in these online straw polls.

A Man Who Should Be President -
Rep. Ron Paul Blasts Big Business,
Media & Congress
By Rep. Ron Paul

10-14-00

other day, I made a huge "gaffe" on national television, I told the truth about the crimes of the U.S. Government.

 

As you can imagine, the ceiling fell in, and a couple of walls too. Congressman are supposed to support the government, I was told. 'Oh, it's okay to criticize around the edges but there are certain subjects a member of the House of Representatives is not supposed to bring up.'

 

I was interviewed on C-SPAN's morning Washington Journal, and I used the opportunity, as I do all such media appearances, to point out how many of our liberties have been stolen by the federal government. If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have no federal meddling in our schools, no Federal Reserve, no U.S. membership in the UN, no gun control, and no foreign aid. We should have no welfare for corporations or the "poor," no American troops in 100 foreign countries, no NAFTA, GATT or "fast-track," no arrogant federal judges usurping states' rights, no attacks on private property and no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies and most of the budget. The government would be small, frugal and limited.

 

That system is called liberty. It's what the Founding Fathers gave us. Under liberty, we built the greatest, freest, most prosperous, most decent country on earth. It's no coincidence that the monstrous growth of the federal government has been accompanied by a sickening decline in living standards and moral standards. The feds want us to be hamsters on a treadmill - working hard, all day long to pay high taxes, but otherwise entirely docile and controlled.

 

Well, I'm sorry, but that's not America. It's not what the founding fathers gave us.

 

So, on that TV interview, I emphasized not only the attacks on our property, but also the decline of our civil liberties at the hands of the federal police. There are not supposed to be any federal police according to the Constitution.

 

Then I really went over the line. I talked about the Waco massacre. Bill Clinton and Janet Reno claim those 81 men, women, and children, burned down their own church and killed themselves, and good riddance. So, they put a few survivors on trial and threw them in prison for 40 years.

 

We're not supposed to remember that the Bureau of alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms - talk about an unconstitutional Agency - rather than arrest David Koresh on his regular morning jog, called in the TV stations for a big publicity bonanza and sent a SWAT team in black masks and black uniforms to break down his front door, guns blazing. They also sent in a helicopter gunship to shoot at the roof of a church full of innocents.

 

The Branch Davidians resisted, and after a heartless siege of almost two months, and after cutting off food, water and electricity, and playing horrible rock and roll through huge speakers 24 hours a day, the feds sent in the tanks to crush the walls of the church, and inject poisonous CS gas.

 

Now, CS gas is banned under the Paris Convention on Chemical Warfare. The U.S. could not use it in a war. But it could and did use it against American civilians.

 

After the tanks did their work on the church, the place burst into flames and all 81 people - men,women, children and babies - were incinerated in screaming horror.

 

Did some feds set the fire? Did flammable CS gas ignite, since without electricity, the parishioners were using lanterns? striking one of the bales of hay being used against the thin walls as a "defense" against bullets? Or did the Davidians, as Clinton and Reno claim, kill themselves?

 

Whatever the truth, there's no question that an irresponsible federal government has innocent blood on its hands.

 

In my interview, in answer to a caller's question, I pointed out that Waco, and the federal murders at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, especially the FBI sniper's shot that blasted apart the head of a mother holding her baby, caused many Americans to live in fear of federal power.

 

Then I uttered the sentiments that caused the media hysteria. I said that a lot of Americans fear that they too might be attacked by federal SWAT teams for exercising their Constitutional rights or merely for wanting to be left alone.

 

You've never seen anything like it. For days, in an all-out assault, I was attacked by Democrats, big business, establishment Republicans, and of course, the media in Washington - and my home state of Texas.

 

Newspapers foamed at the mouth, calling me a "right-wing extremist." (Say, isn't that what George III called Thomas Jefferson?"

 

I was even blamed for the Oklahoma City bombing. And by the way, I don't believe we've gotten the full truth on that, either.

 

All my opponents were outraged that a congressman would criticize big government. "If you don't like Washington, resign," said a typical big city newspaper editorial.

 

But the media, as usual, were all wet. Do they ever get anything right? The average congressman may go to Washington to wallow in power and line his pockets with a big lobbying job for special interest - so he can keep ripping off the taxpayers.

 

But that's not why I'm in Congress. It's not why I left my medical practice as a physician. It's not why I refuse a plush congressional pension.

 

I'm in this fight for a reason. I will not let the crooks and clowns and criminals have their way. I'm in Congress to represent the ideas of liberty, the ideas that you and I share, for the people of my district, for the people of Texas, for the people of America. That's why I'm working to stop federal abuses and to cut the government - its taxes, its bureaucrats, its paramilitary police, its spending, its meddling overseas and every single unconstitutional action it takes.

 

Not much of the federal leviathan would be left, if I had my way. But you'd be able to keep the money you earn, your privacy would be secure, your dollar would be sound, your local school would be tops and your kids wouldn't be sent off to some useless or vicious foreign war to fight for the U.N.

 

When I say cut taxes, I don't mean fiddle with the code. I mean abolish the income tax and the IRS and replace them with nothing.

 

Recently, I asked a famous Republican committee chairman, who is always talking about getting rid of the IRS, why he engineered a secret $580 million raise for the tax collectors.

 

"They need it for their computers," this guy told me. So the IRS can't extract enough from us as it is?

 

I won't play the Capitol Hill games with the Capitol Hill gang, denouncing the IRS while giving the Gestapo more of your money. Or figuring out some other federal tax for them to squeeze out of you.

 

I also want to abolish the Federal Reserve and send Alan Greenspan out to get a job.

 

The value of our dollar and the level of our interest rates are not supposed to be manipulated by a few members of the power elite meeting secretly in a marble palace.

 

The Federal Reserve is unconstitutional, pure and simple. Without the Federal Reserve, our money could not be inflated at the behest of big government or big banks. Your income and savings would not lose their value.

 

Just as important, we wouldn't have this endless string of booms and busts, recessions and depressions, with each bust getting worse.

 

I also work to save our schools from D.C. interference. Not only do the feds' new curricula smear the Founders as "racist, slave-owning elitists," they seek to dumb down our students so they will all be equal. "Look-say" reading and the abolition of phonics has the same purpose, and so does the new "fuzzy" math, in which there are no right and wrong answers.

 

But ever since the beginning of federal aid to education and accelerating with the establishment of the rotten Department of Education, SAT scores have been dropping. Schools, with very few exceptions, are getting worse every year. To save our kids, we must get the sticky fingers of the feds off our local schools, and let parents rule.

 

And then there's my least favorite topic: the UN. World government is obviously unconstitutional. It undermines our country's sovereignty in the worst way possible. That's why I want us out of the U.N, and the U.N itself taking a hike.

 

After all, the UN is socialist, and corrupt. Many votes can be bought with a "blonde and a case of scotch," one UN ambassador once said. It costs many billions' and it puts our soldiers in UN uniforms under foreign commanders, and sends them off to unconstitutional, undeclared wars.

 

When Michael New, one of the finest young men I've ever met, objected to wearing UN blue, he was kicked out of the Army.

 

Not one dime for the UN, and not one American soldier. Not in Haiti, not in Bosnia, not in Somalia, not in Rwanda. I know it's radical, but how about devoting our efforts to defending America, and only America?

Mitt Romney has sprinted ahead of presidential competitors John McCain and Rudy Giuliani in a new Iowa Poll of likely Republican caucus participants.

The Des Moines Register poll shows Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, is the top choice of 30 percent of those who say they definitely or probably will attend the leadoff Iowa caucuses in January.

McCain, a U.S. senator from Arizona, nips former New York Mayor Giuliani for second place — 18 percent to 17 percent.



Other polls taken in Iowa this month, presenting a different lineup of candidates that included Newt Gingrich and Fred Thompson, have shown Giuliani, McCain and Romney bunched together. The former U.S. House speaker and former Tennessee senator have said they are considering presidential bids but have not taken steps toward running.

Giuliani leads in recent national surveys of Republican voters, although there are has been some slippage in his support at a time when his position in support of abortion rights
