Rudy Giuliani’s once commanding lead in his home state New York has vanished and he now trails Republican presidential rival John McCain by 12 percentage points, a new poll reveals.
The Siena College survey released Monday shows McCain winning 36 percent of the votes to Giuliani’s 24 percent, with Mitt Romney in third at 10 percent.
Giuliani held a 33-point lead over McCain in December, the New York Post reported.
Siena’s Steven Greenberg called the new poll numbers “a stunning turnaround. While America’s mayor still has strong support among New York City Republicans, he is getting beat by McCain in the suburbs and trounced upstate.”
The Siena poll also found Hillary Clinton with a large lead among New York Democrats. She got 48 percent of the votes, more than twice as many as Barack Obama at 23 percent.
New York has 232 Democratic delegates and 101 GOP delegates.
