From a Baselice & Associates poll, conducted 1/17-21 (501 Texas Republican primary voters, margin of error +/- 4.5%):

Giuliani 77/9
McCain 62/22
Gingrich 62/21
Romney 24/7

Presidential Primary Choice
Giuliani 28%
McCain 26%
Gingrich 17%
Romney 6%
Brownback 2%
Huckabee 2%
Pataki 1%
Hagel 1%
Other/Undecided 18%

I wonder whether Giuliani’s favorables can withstand attack. His public affair and subsequent divorce will not go over well. McCain’s support of the war in Iraq is likely to haunt him. Gingrich, who says he’s not running, left office with a lot of negatives too. Still, one of these three is odds-on to be the nominee.
