A new Siena Poll released today gives both Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton a not-so-surprising big lead amongst their respective party opposition if the 2008 presidential primaries were held today.
Giuliani has a 47-20 lead over Arizona Senator John McCain, while Clinton has a whopping 58-11 lead over her next closest contender, Illinois Senator Barack Obama.
“Home field advantage is even
more important in politics than it is in sports,” said Steven Greenberg, Siena
New York Poll spokesman
The poll also found that New Yorkers are still infatuated with Governor Eliot Spitzer and are not so thrilled with the performance of the State Legislature as a whole.
