Giuliani's strategy in trouble with Huckabee taking a lead in Florida
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 04:08 PM by TeamJordan23
Florida: Huckabee 27% Romney 23% Giuliani 19%
Friday, December 14, 2007

Mitt Romneys strategy for winning the Republican nomination was to win the early states and build momentum. Rudy Giulianis plan was to accept defeats in the early states and come back strong on January 29 in Florida and in many large states on February 5.

The latest Rasmussen Reports polling in the state of Florida suggests that Giuliani might need to work on a Plan B. Mike Huckabee now leads in the Sunshine State Primary with 27% of the vote. He is trailed closely by Romney at 23% and Giuliani at 19%. Fred Thompson is at 9% in the poll, John McCain at 6%, and Ron Paul at 4%. Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter each attract 1% and 8% are undecided.

Those figures reflect a stunning change in the race since November when Rasmussen Reports polling found Giuliani on top with 27% followed by Romney at 19% and Thompson at 16%. Since then, Huckabee has gained 18 percentage points and Romney picked up four points. Giuliani is down eight, Thompson is down seven, and McCain is down four.

Huckabee has shaken up the race for the White House with an amazing surge over the past month. He now leads in Iowa and South Carolina. He is tied for the lead in Michigan and consistently near the top nationally in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

1. Giuliani isn't going to win jack squat.
Neither is Thompson.

2. Giuliani has the best chance of beating us, IMO
His chances of winning some blue states are real, while the same cannot be said aboutHuckabee and Romney.

Go Huckabee.
