Rudy, master of thug politics, is losing his own home state

Today’s New York Times has a front page article about the ruthless reign of Rudy. He was a real, vindictive bastard as mayor of New York. Worth a read to see how Rudy and his team harassed and victimized any one who criticized the Mayor.

Not much love for Rudy these days in his home state. His string of sixth place finishes has had an impact. Rudy is losing NY now:

“If these numbers are truly reflective of the electorate, then Rudy’s dead,” said Doug Muzzio, professor of public affairs at Baruch College in Manhattan. He blamed the slippage on the fact that “Rudy has been virtually invisible” nationally while focusing all his attention on winning Florida.

The WNBC/Marist Poll in New York shows McCain beating Giuliani 32 to 22 percent, followed by Mitt Romney at 14 percent and Mike Huckabee at 11 percent, with Fred Thompson trailing at 4 percent. Fifteen percent of 401 Republicans polled last week were undecided. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.

A second poll, by Siena College Research Institute, found the former New York mayor trailing the Arizona senator by 12 points for the New York primary Feb. 5. Siena put Giuliani second, with 24 percent of support among Republicans, behind McCain’s 36 percent. Romney had 10 percent, Huckabee 7 percent, and Thompson 6 percent. That poll has a margin of error of 7.4 percent.

At least he’s beating Ron Paul in NY. That’s a change.
