A CNN/Opinion Research puts Rudy Giuliani in a tree way tie for the GOP 2012 presidential nomination.
(The Hill) – Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani (R) could have a significant impact on the Republican primary field if he chooses to run, a poll released Friday showed.
A CNN/Opinion Research survey showed Giuliani, who ran a failed presidential campaign in 2008, statistically tied with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) in a hypothetical match-up. Giuliani received 16 percent support from Republicans, Romney got 15 percent and Palin received 13 percent.
The poll can be seen as a testament to the unsettled nature of the Republican field of candidates looking to unseat President Obama in 2012.
