Rooty the invincible is proving to be anything but...
Ahead of tonight's first Republican primary debate, the Quinnipiac Poll out this morning has bad news for Rudy Giuliani (and Mitt Romney), good news for Fred Thompson, and mixed news for John McCain.
Quinnipiac polled 1,166 American voters between April 25 and May 1.
Compared to Quinnipiac's last national poll in February, Mr. Giuliani fell to 27% from 40% — a huge tumble. Mr. Romney barely budged, going to 8% from 7%. Mr. McCain also barely budged, going to 19% from 18%. And Mr. Thompson burst onto the scene, coming in at 14%, having not been included in the last poll (and, as usual, stealing third place from Mr. Romney, despite not having lifted a finger).
