Clinton, Giuliani Lead In California

Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani are the top choice of their respective party in the latest Public Policy Institute of California poll. The state is positioned to be a gold mine for delegates in the February 5th super-duper Tuesday contests.

Clinton has a wide lead in the poll, besting Barack Obama 43 percent to 23 percent with John Edwards at 14 percent. The Republican race is much tighter. Giuliani, who has said one of his biggest political attributes is his appeal in states where Republicans have lost in recent years, leads the field with 22 percent. Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney each garnered 16 percent of the vote and John McCain is statistically tied for second with 15 percent.
