Poll confirms Rudy’s support among social conservatives


A recent article from the Politico analyzed the results of a recent poll by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, which shows that 44 percent of social conservatives believe Giuliani has the best chance of winning the presidency in 2008. Rudy is winning 30 percent of the social conservative bloc, followed by 22 percent for McCain, and 8 percent for Romney. The results show that social conservatives weigh many factors and continue to put pragmatism before ideology in determining who they will support.

This poll is not an anomaly either. In April, Rudy appeared in my hometown in suburban Kansas City for a fundraiser that several Kansas politicians attended. Kansas is notable for an extreme split between moderates and conservatives in the Republican Party, yet conservative and moderate supporters turned out to hear the New York mayor (and it is a rare site indeed to attract moderates and conservatives to the same event, much less to be in support of the same person).

Some social conservatives have banded together and created an online forum explaining their support for Rudy. Those interested can visit “Social Conservatives for Rudy” at www.SoConsForRudy.com.

As social conservative, former Rep. Jim Nussle (R-IA) said: Rudy “can give the rest of the country a principled leader we can believe in.”
