Last year at this time, former NYC mayor Rudy Guliani was in the lead in most polls on Republican candidates. Today, he is a bottom tier candidate. He has yet to win a primary or caucus. He hasn't had a 3rd place finish yet. He seems to be banking on wins in Florida, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and California were many former New Yorkers and Italian-Americans live to save his campaign.

There has been many reasons given for his lackluster campaign. Some say its due to his strategy of skipping the early campaigns. Some say he is too liberal for today's Republican party. Others say he made a mistake on basing his campaign on 9/11. Many feel that its his personal life. I feel that his campaign failure is due the above reasons and to subtle anti-Italian-American bias that still exists in America. The image in many folks minds is that Italian-Americans and organized crime are interchangable. One former candidate for vice president (Geraldine Ferraro) was repeatedly dogged by her husband's tax problems and a secret family link to the mafia..

Why do you think Rudy is floundering ? Share your thoughts.

Could just be the whiff of corruption off of him
