Clinton and Giuliani Maintain Lead in Florida

Tallahassee, FL – Senator Clinton's lead in the Democratic race has slipped eight points in the past month,
according to a survey by Quinnipiac University. And her lead over former New York
Mayor Rudy Giuliani in a hypothetical matchup has disappeared. But Pollster Peter
Brown says Giuliani's 3 point lead is within the poll's margin of error.


The poll of 1025 florida voters was conducted last week and early this week. It has a
margin of error of 3.1 percent. Giuliani dominates a Republican primary with 30 percent
of respondents naming him as his choice. Arizona Senator John McCain is tied for
second with Fred Thompson at 14 percent.

Senator Clinton leads a Democratic primary with 43 percent , Illinois Senator Barack
Obama is at 18 percent. John Edwards is third at 12 percent.
