Taking the most recent poll from each state in the country from sources like Polling Report, Rasmussen and Survey USA, I have been able to piece together maps showing the state by state general election between both Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani, and also between Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney.

Clinton 335-203 Giuliani

New Republican States: Oblivion
New Democratic States: Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Louisiana, New Mexico, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia. Plus seven congressional districts in North Carolina States within three points: Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas

Now, Clinton's advantage over Giuliani is narrow in a number of states, and her lead of Romney is fueled, to a certain extent, by her much higher name recognition. However, it is important to keep in mind that Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani are the two frontrunners for the Republican nomination right now, and that Hillary Clinton is supposedly the least electable Democrat of the four early state candidates in double digits. To put it another way, this is supposedly the worst-case scenario for Democrats right now. On top of this, what do you think will happen to either Giuliani or Romney's numbers when, for nine consecutive months next year (February 6th through Election Day), they are on every media possible, every day, arguing that we don't need to withdraw any troops from Iraq?
