Giuliani has double-digit lead over McCain
WASHINTON (CNN) -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has opened up a double-digit lead over Arizona Sen. John McCain in the race for the GOP presidential nomination, a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll out Monday indicates.
In a similar CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll conducted at the end of January, McCain trailed Giuliani by only six percentage points, registering 26 percent to Giuliani's 34 percent.
Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel, who announced earlier Monday he would decide whether to wage a presidential bid "later this year,' registered at two percent.
ASTERISK MEANS LESS THAN ONE HALF OF ONE PERCENT
