Few Republicans Want V-P Cheney Replaced

New York, NY – An Associated Press survey indicates very few Republican delegates to the party's convention next week in New York want Vice President Dick Cheney to step aside. But about half do have opinions on who should replace him if he did so. Secretary of State Colin Powell and former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani top the list with about nine percent each. National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice was mentioned by seven percent followed by Arizona Senator John McCain with five percent. When asked who their replacement choice was, 45 percent of the delegates surveyed said "none."
