Included in the Gallup survey for the first time, Thompson drew 12% of the vote. Rudy Giuliani gets 31% and Sen. John McCain 22%, according to the March 23-25 poll.
Giuliani has plunged 13% race with Thompson in the picture, with McCain holding steady.
But he still easily bests McCain in a one-on-one matchup.
Giuliani is dominating the current field. But it looks like Republicans are desperate for someone else. Despite the media's fascination with McCain the maverick and Giuliani the hero of 9/11, I'm betting neither is left standing 12 months from now.
