Another poll suggests that Rudy Giuliani could potentially beat appointed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), if he enters the 2010 Senate race as he’s reportedly been considering.

The new numbers from Rasmussen: Giuliani 53%, Gillibrand 40%, with a ±4.5% margin of error. A Zogby poll yesterday gave Rudy a narrower lead of 45%-43%, within that poll’s ±3.2% margin of error.

The pollster’s analysis speculates that Giuliani could be getting a short-term boost in this Democratic state, due to the Obama administration’s decision on terrorism trials: “Fifty-five percent (55%) of New York State voters oppose U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to try the confessed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks and five other suspected terrorists in a civilian court in New York City rather than before a military tribunal.”
