Giuliani’s “Republican” Problem
If you’re going to get the Republican nomination, there are some things you’ll probably have to agree with the majority of Republicans about. Two of them are abortion and gay marriage. I’m not saying that all Republicans feel this way, but the majority? Yep.
And in that vein…Giuliani may be staring an insurmountable problem in the face…as Rich Lowry of NRO notes:
…this from the Wall Street Journal poll today: ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œFully three of four RepublicansÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬?including a majority of those backing the former New York City mayorÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬?say they would have reservations if they learned Mr. Giuliani supports abortion rights and supports civil unions for gay and lesbians couples.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚?
Good luck Rudy. It’s gonna be a tough slog.
