Posted on 12/28/2010 6:54:38 PM PST by pissant
(NewsCore) - Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has the support of more Republicans around the country than three of his potential 2012 rivals, according to a new CNN poll released Tuesday.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll found that 67 percent of self-identified Republicans were either very likely or somewhat likely to support his candidacy in 2012.
That compared with 59 percent for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 54 percent for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and 49 percent for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
It is the second recent poll to show momentum for Huckabee. A Public Policy Polling survey taken just before Christmas showed the former Arkansas governor overtaking Romney in the pivotal state of Florida.

No huck here... can’t hunt with that DOG....
CNN poll, right.
Yeah, although he’d be better than Romney or Gingrich.
Huck’s about 2% better than Mitt; in other words, another loser.
No. No. NO.
That would be a good ticket, but I doubt that Americans have the character to elect DeMint.
I think the media is just like the elitist politicians,they will tell us who is best for us,by polls or whatever means are necessary. Now Demint/Pence-there is a powerful combination that this nation needs badly!
Just google “Huckabee family picture”. He doesn’t stand a chance.
(I’m not technically adept enough to know how to post a photo)
Prince Al Waleed Bin Tal Fox News is pimping a CNN poll for a RINO.
Oh yeah - Al Waleed’s Fox is our friend. ALL TV is Obama propaganda s***.
NO NO NO- might as well have George Voinovitch or some other RINO- NO Huckabee (or anyone that believes in global warming)
Huckabee? No, thanks...
Well, Huck certainly has locked up the death row vote.
Negatory there, Pigpen.
The day that Palin announces, all other wannabe’s should toss in the towel and go home.
DeMit has made it clear that he doesn’t want the job. Pence lacks the “X” factor, so he can’t pull enough votes. That’s no doubt going to break the hearts of the Pence princes.
Weak field is right. Huckster is so damn awful. We need a Republican “Savior” to dislodge Obama. I’m hoping!
Huck = wet noodle. Pence / Bolton 2012
Hell, Huck would beat Palin like a bongo drum. Conservatives can do better......and we will.
I don’t know how I can possibly pull the lever for this guy. I will have to be pretty dang drunk that is for sure. Hope this nightmare does not occur.
Me too. Anyone who thinks global warming is real needs his head examined.
State Run Media continues to carry the water for their non-feared opponents (i.e., Huck, Romney, Gingrich, etc.)...anybody who is non-threatening is their favorite.
You like Sarah Palin better than Uncle Mikey?
I gotta go Pence/DeMint. Pence is a strong man and that’s what this country needs right now. As a CIC, I would follow him any where.
Exactly right - Hucks power comes from the Christians... He is the ONLY candidate to fully support Life...
If one wants to derail Huckleberry, get behind a candidate the Christians can stand.
Demint, no doubt.
For real? Yes.
Pissant, you live in a make-believe world if you really believe that crap. I live west of you, where the rain is made, and if you keep being so damn goofy, I’ll send more rain your way....maybe even a few feet of snow.
where do Huck and Palin differ on this?
Palin is dropping like a rock. Overexposure (and saying dumb things) is never a good thing.
Get me liquored up on election day November 6th 2012. Yeah I'll vote for Huckster over Obama.
They must have polled Bass Guitar players.
Not Huck. He’s just about the only GOP contender who I won’t consider.
I’d be thrilled with a DeMint/Pence ticket.
Huckabee- social gospel + fair tax. He could be Palin’s “Liason to Disenchanted (with the SBC) Southern Baptist Ministers”.
Huck supports Constitutional resolution to Life (Constitutionally protected).
Palin believes that the question of Life belongs to the states.
Hey, Pissant is a member of the elite Falcon Party. How can a member of the make-believe political party with make-believe conventions possibly live in a make-believe world?
That headline made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. Cannot stand this guy.
RINOs need love too.
Saying it doesn’t make it a fact. Saying it again and again still won’t make it a fact.
I am not against weight-challenged people (I like Christie < grin > ), but the Huckster even looks like a huckster.
Huckadoodle the RINO Food Nazi pardoned a Perp who MURDERED FOUR POLICE OFFICERS.
If Republicans (and Conservatives) are stupid enough to put the Huckster on top of the ticket, they deserve another four years of the Bamster.
Obama can't stop smoking and apparently Huckabee can't stop eating. Two idiots with no self control, just what we need.
It’s an opinion. Just like your misguided opinion that Palin is some great conservative. She ain’t. She can’t debate well. And she ain’t going anywhere.
Did they poll who was going to win the Super Bowl in 2012 too?
Pray for the Tea Congress
“Exactly right - Hucks power comes from the Christians... He is the ONLY candidate to fully support Life...”
I admire that. But he didn’t say a peep about the repeal of DADT (either before or after), even though he’s commented on just about every other issue. Being pro-life but soft on the radical homosexual agenda just isn’t good enough IMO. We need a candidate who’s conservative and courageous all the way through.
