Right now, Thompson is trailing Guliani. But when Republicans and Red-Staters find out that Guliani is pro-choice (supports abortion on demand), has supported planned parenthood, is not against the partial-birth abortion ban, completely waffled on the question about Roe vs. Wade in that debate (where he was asked if it would be a good thing or a bad thing if Roe was overturned), they are going to flock to Thompson in droves and droves.
