Poll: Obama is the Best Antidote to Giuliani

"Obama Runs Best Against GOP Front-Runner Giuliani" is the headline for the press release accompanying a new Quinnipiac poll, countering the notion that Hillary Clinton would fare best in the match-up that almost happened when she ran for Senate in 2000.

The survey was taken by 1,166 voters, including 469 Republicans and 499 Democrats.

One of the questions they were all asked of was “If the 2008 election for President were being held today, and the candidates were Hillary Clinton the Democrat and Rudy Giuliani the Republican, for whom would you vote?”

Here are the results from that head to head match-up:

Giuliani gets 92 percent of the Republican vote; Hillary gets 83 percent of the Democratic vote. But Giuliani beats Hillary 47 to 37 among Independents, and 46 to 44 percent among women.

Mark Penn will have an explanation, I'm sure.

But I just thought that was kind of interesting.
