Flemington, NJ, June 7, 2007 – The results of a national focus group among 396 self-reported Republicans and independents indicated that among all responders, 44% believe that Rudolph Giuliani will receive the Republican Party nomination for the 2008 election.
The communications research study was conducted by HCD Research, using its mediacurves.com website, during June 6-7, to obtain Americans’ views of candidates after viewing segments from the Republican debate on June 4.
While viewing video segments of the debate, participants indicated their levels of agreement by moving their mouse from left to right on a continuum. The responses are recorded in quarter-second intervals and reported in the form of curves. To view agreement curves and detailed results among party affiliation, go to: www.mediacurves.com
