Hillary Clinton leads all other Democratic presidential candidates in Pennsylvania by an impressive margin – and Rudy Giuliani has an even larger edge over his Republican rivals, a new poll reveals.
The Pennsylvania poll by Strategic Vision, LLC involved 1,200 likely Democratic, Republican and Independent voters.
When Republicans were asked their choice for President in 2008, Rudy Giuliani got 45 percent of the vote, far outpacing Fred Thompson at 15 percent. They were followed by John McCain with 8 percent, Mitt Romney with 7 percent, and Ron Paul with 3 percent. No other candidate got more than 2 percent of the votes, and 16 percent were undecided.
“Giuliani dominates the race in Pennsylvania as would be expected,” said David E. Johnson, CEO of Strategic Vision.
“Giuliani’s lead is in all regions of the state and appears solid, leading one to question if he can be overtaken in Pennsylvania. It is hard to see how another candidate could become competitive in the state unless Giuliani’s campaign imploded.”
Among Democratic presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton led with 42 percent of the votes, well ahead of Barack Obama with 24 percent, John Edwards with 9 percent, Bill Richardson with 6 percent, and Joseph Biden with 5 percent. No other candidate received more than 1 percent, and 12 percent were undecided.
“Clinton increased her lead in Pennsylvania and dominates in all regions and outpolls Obama even among African-Americans,” said Johnson.
“At this point, Clinton is surging in Pennsylvania as she is in other states.”
In other poll findings, only 19 percent of respondents said they approved of the job Congress is doing, and a slight majority – 54 percent - favor the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq within six months.
