Religious Right Will Not Support Giuliani

A growing number of influential social conservatives are speaking out against Rudy Giuliani, with some threatening that they will take flight from the Republican Party in 2008 if the former New York mayor is the GOP nominee.

Giuliani's support for abortion rights and gay rights has not to date prevented him from winning the support of a sizable number of socially conservative voters, according to polls. But the continued strength of his candidacy is causing alarm among leaders of conservative advocacy groups, many of which have been major players in Republican politics.
How I love it when moderate Republicans are tossed under the bus by the so called religious conservatives. With less people registering as Republicans, can Giuliani put together enough support without religious conservatives to win the nomination? My guess is no. Giuliani will be the Howard Dean of 2008 and it could not happen to a nicer guy.
