Does Giuliani have the 'right experience'?

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
Giuliani's support is tenuous and declining, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll out this morning. While the former New York City mayor still leads in the poll, 27% to 22% over Fred Thompson, it marks the first time his support has dipped below 30% in the poll -- a trend which has been seen in other surveys in the past month. Giuliani's support has declined as Thompson has taken up some of the political oxygen, but it also appears Giuliani's experience as mayor of a large city is not necessarily "the right kind of experience for becoming president of the United States." Only about half of those surveyed say it is compared with about 80% who believe being a senator or governor is the right experience.
