Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani lead in the race for their parties’ nominations for president among Florida voters and are dead even in a head-to-head match-up, according to a new poll out today by Quinnipiac.
Clinton leads her closest Democratic rival in the primary, Barack Obama, by 29 points. Giuliani leads his closest rival, Fred Thompson, by 11. Head-to-head, Clinton and Giuliani are both at 44 percent. In an August poll by Quinnipiac, Clinton edged out Giuliani 46 to 44 percent.
The pollsters suggest that Giuliani may be in trouble because 31 percent of Republican voters in Florida say their decision about whom to support may be affected if a candidate was “divorced more than once.”
For the record, Giuliani’s marital record goes like this: divorced once, got an annulment before that, and has been married three times.
