Michael Barone gives a potential Rudy-Hillary race his usual thorough and insightful analysis, and his findings are very encouraging for Rudy supporters.
Barone’s summary (as of now):
“Rudy's electoral vote position against Hillary is much stronger than Bush's against Kerry. Rudy puts almost the whole East into play and is significantly stronger in several target states in the Midwest and West. Hillary puts some states into play in the South but with many fewer electoral votes than Rudy does elsewhere. Even if you assume that Hillary is stronger against Rudy today than she was in July, the pairing does place the Republicans in a stronger position than Bush was in '04.”
