Here are some more interesting tidbits from that Harris poll. Broken down by age, Fred Thompson does best with voters who are 61 and up, taking 44 percent. Rudy Giuliani only wins 16 percent among this group. Thompson doesn’t do well with the kids, however. He gets 8 percent of 18-to-29 voters while Giuliani takes 33 percent. Thompson doesn’t lead Giuilani until we get to the Baby Boomers, and even then it’s by just four points.

Ron Paul and Sam Brownback both do best with the 18-to-29 crowd, winning 10 percent each — just a point behind Mitt Romney. Ditto John McCain, at 20 percent. Mike Huckabee wins just 2 percent of this group, but does best among Generation Xers (aged 30 to 41) , getting 10 percent — just a point behind McCain.
