POLL: Clinton vs. Giuliani on Drive to 2008


— On the Republican side, on both questions, Giuliani does notably better than his top competitors among younger voters, and — as in national vote-preference polls — among moderate Republicans vs. conservatives.

Among moderate Republicans, 51 percent pick Giuliani to run their company, and 48 percent would like him on a long drive; among conservative Republicans, these fall to 31 percent and 27 percent, respectively. Indeed about as many conservatives would like Thompson along on a cross-country drive (25 percent) as Giuliani. But Giuliani runs ahead of Thompson, even among conservative Republicans, in the more management-oriented question of preference to run the company.


— In their head-to-head matchups, Giuliani beats Clinton in preference to run the business among higher-income and better-educated Americans, senior citizens, conservatives, Midwesterners and independents (as well as, naturally, among Republicans). In the more personal choice of a cross-country driving companion, his lead among some of these groups — seniors, Midwesterners, college graduates and independents — dissipates.

Clinton, for her part, does best in preference in both questions among (beyond women and Democrats), Westerners (though Giuliani also is weak in the Northeast), lower-income and less-educated adults, nonwhites and liberals (though she also leads Giuliani among moderates).


— This ABC News poll was conducted by telephone Aug. 24-28, 2007, among a random national sample of 1,011 adults. The results have a three-point error margin for the full sample, 4.5 points for the sample of 452 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents and five points for the sample of 387 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.
