Rudy Unraveling

The WSJ's Washington Wire:

The former New York mayor was the choice of 25% of Republican-leaning respondents in new USA Today/Gallup poll. That gives him a nine-point lead over Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor, whose support surged to 16% from 6% a month ago. It was Giuliani’s worst showing in the poll all year.

Another survey — also taken Nov. 30 through Dec. 2 — for the Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg pegged Giuliani’s support at 23% among likely Republican voters, down from 32% in October. Huckabee, meanwhile, had shot to 17% from 7%.

If the trend continues and Giuliani looses his national lead, he would find it harder to raise funds. It would also greatly complicate — perhaps even doom — his unorthodox primary strategy


Still think this is all over by 3/1?

Ol' Huck's Arkansas-byzantine dealings won't do him any good, either--

McCain's weak--

Paul's another Perot--

Romney's going to 'slick' himself out--

Look for a Thompson/Hunter ticket. AFTER the Convention.

It would be great to see a convention where nobody is close to a majority of delegates.
