Giuliani tops Bark Back poll as GOP nominee

By Scott Cavanagh
Former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani was the choice of nearly 40% of the voters in last week's Bark Back News opinion poll, making him the favorite answer to the question: "Who will be the GOP nominee for president in '08?"

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney finished a distant second with 28%, followed by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee at 18% and Arizona Senator John McCain with 12%.

Despite his moderate and often conflicting views on some key conservative social issues, Giuliani's track record as a law and order mayor with the ability to get things done amidst streams of bureaucracy continues to strike a positive chord with a good portion of the public.

The oddest stat line might have been the returns on newcomer Fred Thompson, who finished last. Let us know your thoughts on the Republican field, and vote in our first look at the Democratic field above.
