Fred takes the lead (Rasmussen Reports)

Fred moves ahead of Rudy:

There’s change at the top in the race for the Republican Presidential

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds former
Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson earning support from 28% of Likely Republican Primary Voters. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani attracts support from 27%. While Thompson’s one-point edge is statistically insignificant, it is the first time all year that anybody but Giuliani has been on top in Rasmussen
Reports polling. A
week ago, Thompson and Giuliani were tied at 24%.

Each time I see a report on Fred there is a line like this:

It remains an open question as to how Thompson will hold up once he actually enters the campaign and has to compete directly with other candidates. To date, he retains the allure of the new kid in town while GOP voters already know the things they don’t like about the others.

I think Fred will do just fine when he starts competing with the other candidates.

Win, Fred, Win
