Thompson in 1st!

I'm hesitant to take too much stock in national polls for the '08 primaries (because when Hew Hampshire is voting, it will matter what what New Hampshire thinks and what the other 49 think won't matter all the much [same goes for when it's Iowa's, South Carolina's, etc. etc. turn]). However, this certainly is good news for the Thompson campaign and those pulling for him.

The latest Rasmussen poll:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that Fred Thompson is enjoying a bounce from his formal entry into the Presidential race.

In the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination, Thompson is on top for the first time since late July. The former Tennessee Senator is currently the top choice for 26% of Likely Republican Primary Voters. Rudy Giuliani, who has been the frontrunner for most of the year, is close behind with support from 22%. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney earns the vote from 13% while 12% prefer Arizona Senator John McCain. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee remains atop the second tier at 6% (see recent daily numbers).
