Gee, I Wanted to Declare this in 2004...

Florida is a "Red State." Deal with it liberals.

Hell, deal with it media.

Republican Rudy Giuliani, shown here campaigning yesterday at the NASCAR Nextel Cup Ford 400 race in Homestead, is the most popular presidential candidate in Florida, with 57 percent of voters willing to consider voting for him, according to a new Mason-Dixon poll.

In a potential matchup with Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, Giuliani wins 50-43 percent. Republicans Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney also beat her, although their wins are within the margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.

Bush won Florida by a larger margin in 2004 than he did in 2000. The state is becoming more Republican-leaning.

Of course, on the flip-side, I'm pretty certain Wisconsin's going to stay a "Blue State" in 2008. I've played with the numbers enough, but I could be wrong.

Heck, I've said to countless politicos out here in DC and back in Wisconsin that the Badger State won't vote for a Republican until at least 2012. (Gets a few double-takes too.)

And that's not taking into the expected margin of fraud...

UPDATE: Further proof of my point on Florida in a new Rasmussen Poll out.

Lastly, Rasmussen has general election match ups that show Giuliani beating Hillary Clinton - but by the smallest margin of any top tier Republican:

McCain 48 - Clinton 38
Thompson 47 - Clinton 38
Romney 46 - Clinton 39
Giuliani 46 - Clinton 41

In Rasmussen's poll of the state, the biggest thing to notice is a +8 gain for Romney, tied in with a -2 and -7 drops for Giuliani and Thompson respectively.

(Might a Mitt-surge be upon us?)
