Rudy now trails in NY, CT (NBC's Domenico Montanaro, 1/21/08, First Read)

Giuliani has staked it all on Florida. And it better hold for him because two new polls out show him now trailing in New York and Connecticut -- places the Giuliani campaign had only a month and a half ago described as "momentum proof."

In New York, McCain now leads Giuliani 36%-24%, followed by Romney at 10% and Huckabee at 7%, according to a Siena Research Institute poll. Seventeen percent said they were undecided. What's remarkable about this is not just that Giuliani is the former mayor of New York City, but that he led McCain in the same poll on Dec. 10, 48%-15%.

In Connecticut, McCain leads 39%-16% over Giuliani with Romney at 11% in a Hartford Courant/University of Connecticut poll.

Same here in Texas - three months ago The Mayor had a big lead - now he's down below that nutcase Paul. For some bizarre reason Huckabee holds the lead here now, a very atypical choice for Texans. McCain will surge.

ok. I'm done with Rudy. Who picks such harebrain strategy to the whitehouse. if he takes such chances with high risk/high reward things such as running for presidency then what chances will he take once president. i'm disgusted with him. I don't know who to go with now. not ready to join the mccain bandwagon. leaning towards romney. guliani........idiot.
