REPORTS OF HIS DEATH, ETC., ETC.
I keep hearing Giuliani's in trouble, but once again a poll shows him doing just fine. In this one, from The Washington Post and ABC, Rudy's at 34%; Thompson's a distant second at 17%.
And then there's this:
More curious was that Giuliani led on whom Republicans trust to handle social issues. Despite his support for abortion rights and gay rights, 41 percent of those surveyed cited Giuliani as the one they trust, with Thompson a distant second at 18 percent. There was no clear explanation for that finding, given a previous Post-ABC News poll that showed concern among many Republicans about Giuliani's positions on those issues. But the poll did not specify which "social issues" respondents should consider.
Well, I assume the "social issues" they have in mind are "keeping liberals and hippies and swarthy people in their place." On that score, maybe Rudy is the social issues champ.
