Giuliani Back Up; McCain Back Down; Romney Still Down

The new Gallup poll shows Rudy Giuliani recovering, in part, from the fall he took in mid-March.  At the same time, the poll shows John McCain’s slide resuming.  The undeclared Newt Gingrich and Fred Thompson are tied for third, and Mitt Romney is a solid fourth place — a full four points ahead of the other Thompson, Tommy.

Giuliani                        38

McCain                        16

Gingrich                       10

Fred Thompson            10

Mitt Romney                  6

Since January, Giuliani has gone from 31 to 40 to 44 to 31 to 38.  In the same period, McCain has gone from 27 to 24 to 20 to 22 to 16.  Gingrich has stayed around 10 percent the whole time, and Thompson’s first appearance was a week ago, at 12 percent.  Since January, Romney’s support has gone from 7 to 5 to 8 to 3 to 6 percent.

Stormy Daniels could have stepped right out of the 1990s. She would have been a natural in a Bill Clinton scandal, and, in fact, all the same means would have been used against her.

Encouraging Signs in Iraq

Last year, relations between the Iraqi central government and the Kurds reached what was possibly an all-time low when the Kurds held an independence referendum in which 93 percent of voters opted to secede.
