Giuliani up this time in Florida

Republican Rudy Giuliani has taken back the lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton in Florida, 46-43 percent, reversing her three-point margin of victory two weeks ago, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Giuliani gets 30 percent of the Republican vote, while John McCain has moved up to to 14 percent, tying Fred Thompson. Mitt Romney has dropped to 12 percent.

In the Democratic contest, Clinton gets 43 percent, down from 51 percent two weeks ago. Barack Obama receives 18 percent, and John Edwards gets 12 percent.

Among Florida's independent voters, 22 percent say they are less likely to vote for a Democrat for president because the national party yanked Florida's delegates to the national convention.

Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,025 Florida voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. The survey includes 394 Republicans, with a margin of error of 4.9 percentage points, and 416 Democrats, with a margin of error of 4.8 percentage points.
