Poll: Clinton Beats Rudy in NY, With or Without Bloomberg

Hillary Clinton trounces Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg, in a theoretical-but-no-longer-so-unimaginable three-way, all-New York presidential poll of New York voters released today by Quinnipiac University.

Clinton gets 43 percent of the vote, Giuliani gets 29 percent and Bloomberg gets 16. Without Bloomberg in the race, Clinton’s lead grows to 52 percent while Giuliani’s inches up to 37 percent, the poll shows.

Other findings from the poll: while Giuliani ties Barack Obama here, the former mayor would lose to Al Gore.
