Wisconsin loves Giuliani and Gore, with the latter pulling in 64 percent among Republicans, and the former pulling in 62 percent among Dems in the latest Badger Poll.
Following the footsteps among "net favorability" were
Tommy "the gay/jew basher" Thompson at 58 percent
John "bomb Iran" McCain at 16 percent
Mitt "Ann Coulter wants me" Romney at 4 percent
Hillary (blame Iraqis) Clinton 60 percent
Barack (I talk nice) Obama at 57 percent
John (the trial lawyer everyman) Edwards at 54 percent
Meanwhile President Bush has favorability rating of 26 percent of Americans, according to the latest Newsweek poll. This is between the lowest for his father (29 percent) in a '92 Gallup poll and the lowest for Nixon (23 percent) in a '74 Gallup poll.
No mention of Fred Thompson in the Badger state this time around, though he did top a straw poll held in Lake Geneva mid-May.
UW-Madison Political Guru/Pollster Charles Franklin, on his blog, notes Fred Thompson is eclipsing Sen. McCain nationally, even though both are pretty similar on the issues.
