Fred Thompson has moved into second place in the latest Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll. Giuliani leads with 29 percent, Thompson is at 15, McCain is at 12, Romney is at 8, and Gingrich is at 7. Most polls we’re seeing now reflect a fading McCain, perhaps a result of his lackluster fundraising performance. It should be interesting to see if his policy speeches over the next few weeks help to bump those numbers up. Meanwhile, as Thompson looks more and more like he’s going to run, his numbers rise. Should he actually run, as is now widely anticipated, I think he’ll get another bump, just as Giuliani did when he announced after pundits spent months doubting he would pull the trigger. In head-to-head matchups vs. Democrats, Giuliani beats Hillary and Edwards, but trails Obama, while McCain and Romney trail all three top Democrats.
