ESTERO, Fla. - Rudy Giuliani's make-or-break state appears to be breaking him. Two new polls released yesterday show the GOP primary hopeful's support plummeting among Florida voters, despite concentrating his campaign here with a whirlwind of campaign stops, a heap of advertising and position shifts in support of state causes. A Miami Herald poll of 800 Republican voters showed Giuliani's one-time lead of 33 percent had plummeted to 15 percent. The survey conducted Jan. 20-21 had him tied for third place with Mike Huckabee. John McCain leads with 25 percent, followed by Mitt Romney, with 22 percent.
One pollster called the results "devastating.""A funny thing happened on the way to Rudy's victory lap," said Kellyanne Conway of The Polling Company in Washington. "The more time he's spent in Florida the worse he's done."
Well, that's never a good sign... the more people see and hear from a candidate and the more they know about him, the LESS they want him. Bwa-ha-ha-haaaaa!!! Stick a fork in Mr. 9-11... he's done. I'm sure he'll be following Mr. "Da-DUMMM!!!" Law and Order out the door soon.
