New poll: By 2-1 margin, New Yorkers want Rudy back
http://www.nydailynews.com/front/breaking_news/story/11...

Nearly two-thirds of New Yorkers want former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani back in public office, according to a statewide poll released Monday.
The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion found 62 percent of registered voters want Giuliani to return to public office. A hypothetical matchup shows the Republican beating incumbent Democratic senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Charles Schumer. Thirty-two percent said they felt Giuliani should stay in the private sector.

Thirty-one percent think Giuliani should run for governor, the poll found. Voters also thought he should run for the U.S. Senate or mayor of New York City, or be appointed to a national security position. Those three areas were each favored by about 15 percent of voters questioned.

<snip>

Just 8 percent thought Giuliani should run for president after President Bush leaves office and 7 percent thought he should replace Vice President Dick Cheney on the ticket next year.

1. Now they say that
When Rudy opens his mouth and shows himself to be his true asshole self, those numbers will go down down down.

2. This is amusing
Rudy the Mayor who liked to dress in drag and had an adulterous relationship while in office.

Before he was elected he once led a drunken march on City Hall, after he was elected he made changed the security procedures so that this couldn't happen to him.

He is spiteful, mean-spirited and vindictive. He would make a lousy Senator. Oh yeah, he once married his cousin.

10. And don't forget his "decency panel"
formed to decide which artworks were suitable for New Yorkers in their museums. The panel included his divorce lawyer and Curtis Sliwa.

4. Proving once again... Americans are clueless idiots.

5. Marist gave people only 2 choices - and we hate Bloomberg a lot
Which is the only relevant poit it makes. Marist is a freeper poll. This one seems to be commissioned by Rudy.

17. I figured that's how the question was worded.
Couldn't imagine where they found New Yorkers who would say they wanted Giuliani, unless they just wanted to get rid of Billionaire Bloomberg.

I don't think I could have answered this poll. I don't want Giuliani or Billionaire Bloomberg.

6. Are NYers that uneducated? Such a dirty immoral man drinking
the blood of New Yorkers' at the Repukelican altar of political lies.

Why doesn't Rutty's name come out in the EPA/WH lying about poison/cancer floating in the air? If Rutty was actually doing something in NY besides taking advantage of death he should have been protecting NYers. I'll bet you that Rutty was advised by the EPA and by his NY staff that there was a serious problem. Where lay people and didn't think of this but to any Chemist, Physicist, Architect, Contractor, Demolition Expert... this surely had to be basic and immediate knowledge. They learn this kind of hazard information as basic training.

NYers should NOT be taking all their anger out on the EPA and Bush. Rutty knew this and also covered it up. NYers should directly sue Rutty.

Why aren't any American Media Whores investigating what Rutty knew about this? Oh, we better ask the BBC, Guardian and The Mirror to investigate this!

I'd rate Rutty fourth only to Satan, Junior, and Cheney.

19. I don't think all NYers were polled. I certainly wasn't
asked if I wanted him back. And yes, some of us NYers are educated!

8. It seems to me that everywhere
people are unhappy with what is happening to their states and cities right now (as they should be) but they are so bloody myopic (or brainwashed) that they can't grasp the fact that local problems are originating with National policies (i.e. Bush* tax cut for millionaires). Until they address the stench occupying the Whitehouse, nothing else is going to change local shortfalls.

9. What a coincidence!
Roughly the same margin of Iraqis who are longing for the good old days of Saddam Hussein!

11. this seems to be a misplaced longing
what a lot of New Yorkers must be missing is not so much Giuliani but the New York of when he was mayor, when the money seemed to be rolling in and the people with it seemed to be rolling out

in light of the economic crisis affecting this city, people are asking themselves, Where has all the money gone?

12. I find this hard to believe
especially in light of the absolute mess he left NYC in. The myth of st. rudy is nothing but a corporate media created illusion, it will dissolve quickly if exposed to light.

13. Here's the set-up to kick Cheney out
Make Cheney the fall guy and put yet another prick in his place. Of course Republicans are so stupid they will forget that the only reason they voted for the Chimp was because Cheney would keep things under control.

14. I thought New York Democrats despised Rudy Giuliani.
And, an estimated crowd of over 1 million protestors were to greet the Republicans in NY City next year at their 'convention'!

What gives?

:shrug:

15. A statewide poll for a city job?
How is that even relevant? NYC is surely more liberal than the state overall, isn't it.

16. 9-11 is what happened
I will give Rudy this - he did a good job for his city during those days. And he didn't run, unlike someone we know.

Course now the idea that was floated that they should delay the election so Rudy could stay mayor to guide NYC out of the tragedy now seem ridiculous.

18. And his incompetence
The important thing to remember about him is that he built his crisis command center at the world trade center after the 1993 bombing!!!
