By Leo Reyes     May 28, 2011 in Politics
A recent opinion poll conducted by CNN shows former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani leading other aspirants for the 2012 Republican presidential primary despite the absence of official declaration on his intention to join the presidential contest.
"According to the poll, which was released Friday, 16 percent of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say they would most likely support Rudy Giuliani as their party's nominee. One point behind, at 15 percent is Mitt Romney, with Sarah Palin coming in at 13 percent", CNN reports.
The poll which was conducted in collaboration with Opinion Research Corporation was done last May 23 and May 26 on 473 likely Republican voters.
Other likely candidates include Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, Former Godfather's Pizza CEO and radio talk show host Herman Cain, Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan are reportedly among the rest of the aspirants who are popular among voters but have not announced intention to join the race.
Meanwhile, President Obama's reelection campaign team officials and volunteers are now setting the stage for a massive action aimed at securing another four-year term for the sitting president.
"In September and October we will see a sea of volunteers come into our offices. We know we have to have an infrastructure in place, an organization in place to properly channel that energy," Obama's Battleground Director Mitch Stewart says in the video.
