By ROGER J. STONE JR. Rudy Giuliani's decision to confirm his pro-choice stance may ultimately be the decision that allows him to survive the early Primaries to wrap up the nomination in the bonanza of Primary States on February 5th. Indeed the ex-mayor's pro-choice position may allow him to score with a plurality of the vote in a split field in at least three of the four early Republican nomination contests. Most pundits have gone overboard in their embrace of the idea that the Christian right has a "death grip" (to quote the New York Time's Frank Rich) on the Republican Party without also mentioning that there are among the Party's supply side and conservative economic voters, a strong pro-choice plurality. Needless to say, there are more of these types of Republican voters in places like San Diego, California, Grosse Point, Michigan, Scarsdale, New York, than say, the outskirts of Biloxi MS. While these voters are not a majority within their own Party, they are a strong plurality and Christian Conservative Primary voters in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Florida and South Carolina will be split between several Conservative candidates and have not coalesced around any one. A Romney consolidation of Christian Conservatives seems unlikely based on his chameleon-like change on social issues and his Mormonism. While Iowa would seem to have grim prospects for the former New York Mayor, New Hampshire, with its larger Catholic population, is a natural. Coincidentally, in the "live free or die" Granite State, there is both a history of moderate Republicanism and a large pro-choice plurality among Republican Primary voters. Admittedly, the Mayor's taking a pro-choice stance was inartful in the beginning. The Mayor should avoid the words "women's right to choose" as the rhetoric of the left. Instead he must pitch his argument about the inappropriateness of big government telling an INDIVIDUAL what they can and cannot do. To a true Conservative, the rights of the individual are paramount, even in the face of a process as horrible as abortion. The Mayor began taking this tack in the second debate. He can't say it enough. The Mayor has effectively rejected the "culture of death" by talking about strenuous efforts to promote adoption, abstinence and fewer abortions. Giuliani's strategies correctly recognize that the issue of terrorism and taxes will trump abortion and gay marriage in voter's minds over the next 18 months. Giuliani's outreach to supply-siders like Steve Forbes and George Gilder has been wise as he assembles a coalition around his strong-suit issues. His tax-cut talk transcends the tax promises of most politicians in terms of political value; Giuliani has actually done it ? and shown results. The Giuliani high command now assumes the early collapse of the McCain campaign. They believe many McCain voters are national security types who will move to the former New York Mayor. That's one scenario and probably will be necessary for Giuliani to leave South Carolina in one piece. A loss in South Carolina for the Mayor would be meaningless if he swept the Florida Primary a few days before. Florida, with its disproportionate of Northeastern and Midwestern retirees, affords the Mayor his next best chance to score after New Hampshire. Nevada has plenty of libertarian types and "live free or die" type Westerners who are Reagan/Goldwater conservatives to make the Mayor competitive there too. Longtime conservative activist and Cape May County Republican Chairman, Dave Von Savage, has skillfully put together the voters to have the New Jersey Republican State Committee to a "winner-take-all" primary system - a huge plus for Rudy. The key obviously is to score big on February 5th sweeping New Jersey, Colorado, California, Illinois, New York, New Mexico, Alaska, Arizona, and Missouri and with it, at least, a commanding lead for the nomination. It is possible.
