Sympathy not Helping Giuliani


ALBANY, N.Y. -- Two new polls show Hillary Rodham Clinton and Rudolph Giuliani still neck-and-neck in their race for Senate, with no "sympathy bounce" for the New York City mayor who last week disclosed he has prostate cancer.

A statewide telephone poll, conducted April 24 through Sunday by the Quinnipiac College Polling Institute in Hamden, Conn., found 46 percent of registered voters favored Clinton and 44 percent wanted Giuliani.

Statistically, the numbers are unchanged from the group's April poll, which showed 46 percent for the first lady and 43 percent for the mayor.
