Daily Rasmussen: Paul Moving, Clinton Still Strong

New numbers from Rasmussen for the primary and general election.

Republicans

Rudy Giuliani: 23%
Fred Thompson: 16%
John McCain: 13%
Mitt Romney: 11%
Mike Huckabee: 9%
Ron Paul: 6%

With the news that Ron Paul raised $4.2 million in one day, it looks like he is getting a little bounce in the polls. Not too shabby for a little guy named Ron Paul. The question is, can he deliver? I think not. How about a third party run? Maybe.

Democrats

Hillary Clinton: 44%
Barack Obama: 19%
John Edwards: 15%

I have to say, the Republican race for the nomination is far more interesting that the Democratic race. There are four men who could possibly be the nominee, one who could shake things up and another who is a pest to the other candidates.

General Election

Hillary Clinton: 48%
Rudy Giuliani: 42%

Hillary Clinton: 48%
Fred Thompson: 42%

This is an improvement from the last survey which had her in a dead heat with both Republican candidates.

Former Brownback SC Chair Endorses McCain

After his boss dropped out of the presidential race, David Barron, Brownback’s former South Carolina Chair, is now endorsing John McCain for President citing McCain’s track record as a consistent conservative.

“Sam is backing Sen. McCain and so will I. There is no viable alternative for conservatives now. Hope I’ll see y’all on the trail. Sure would be good to fight the good fight with you.”

Other members of Brownback’s former campaign are backing other candidates.

A former member of Brownback’s steering committee, Kevin Bryant, will back Mitt Romney.
