Strategy, Giuliani Style

Running for President of Florida, California and New York
Running for President of Florida, California and New York

I'm no political analyst, but I have to say Rudy Giuliani's strategy seems a little strange. He has redrawn the United States to exclude Iowa, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Michigan, Nevada and South Carolina, and plans instead to focus his energy on winning the Florida primaries. So much media attention has been paid to the early caucuses that Giuliani's decision not to participate has erased him from the minds of many voters. Polls in Florida put Giuliani in third place, and in New York he's trailing John McCain. It looks like his decision to ignore the states with few electoral votes has backfired. Note to Giuliani: There are actually 50 states in the U.S.
