Additional results from the recent CBS News/New York Times national survey (CBS story, Bush results, Clinton results, Primary results; NYT story, results) of 1,554 adults (conducted 7/9 through 7/17) finds:

  • 29% approve of the job George Bush is doing as president; 64% disapprove.
  • Among 560 Democrats asked to choose between three candidates, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (43% to 24%) in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 16%.
  • Among 474 Republicans asked to choose between four candidates, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani leads former Sen. Fred Thompson (33% to 25%) in a national primary; Sen. John McCain trails at 15%, former Gov. Mitt Romney at 8%.
  • If Clinton is the Democratic Party's nominee, 63% think it is likely "she will win the presidential election in 2008;" 35% say not likely.

Romney at 8% nationally shows he has little support outside of Iowa and New Hampshire. He is in single digits in South Carolina and Florida, showing that southern evangelical conservatives are not going to vote for a Mormon. It just won't happen.

The real GOP battle is between Guiliani and Thompson. Regardless of how well Romney does in Iowa and NH, he will fade *fast* thereafter.
