A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal national survey (NBC story, results; WSJ story, results) of 606 likely Republican primary voters (conducted 9/28 through 9/30) finds:

  • Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani leads former Sen. Fred Thompson (30% to 23%) in a national primary; Sen. John McCain trails at 15%, former Gov. Mitt Romney at 10%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.
  • 38% of Republican think the next president should "take an approach similar to that of George W. Bush:" 48% think the next president should take a different approach.
  • 59% of Republicans agree that "foreign trade has been bad for the U.S. economy, because imports from abroad have reduced demand for American-made good, cost jobs here at home, and produced protentially unsafe products;" 32% choose the alternate statement that "foreign trade has been good for the U.S. economy, becuase demand for U.S. products abroad has resulted in economic growth and jobs for Americans here at home and provided more choices for consumers."
