Crystal Ball Update

CRYSTAL BALL UPDATE….Byron York summarizes some recent Gallup poll results:

Rudy Giuliani’s favorable rating has dipped below 50 percent for the first time ever. He is at 49 percent favorable, 39 percent unfavorable in the new poll. That’s a significant drop from a few weeks ago, when he was at 54 percent favorable, 30 percent unfavorable. In August, he was at 59 percent favorable, 27 percent unfavorable.

….Hillary Clinton’s favorable rating has been slowly ticking up and is now the equal of Barack Obama’s. She is at 53 percent favorable, 44 percent unfavorable in the new poll. Beginning in August, her favorable ratings have gone from 47 to 49 to 51 to 53, while her unfavorables have gone from 48 to 46 to 44.

Hah! Just as I predicted nine months ago!
