Mike Huckabee said Sunday he's the strongest Republican to take on President Obama in 2012.
"I end up leading a lot of the polls," the former Arkansas governor told "Fox News Sunday." "Im the Republican that clearly at this point does better against Obama than any other Republican."
Huckabee said he hasn't made up his mind about running, but suggested he's strongly considering it.
I havent closed the door. I think that would be foolish on my part, especially when poll after poll shows that there is strong sentiment out there," he said.

Who is all four?
Not your post, referring to another Huckabee run.
This is funny.
If I were king, no one who ran in 2008 could run in 2010.
to our peril .. we absolutely have to get a real candidate and not a media star like Palin or Huckabee.
running those 2 would doom us to another 4 years of zero. just my opinion.
“I end up leading a lot of the polls,” the former Arkansas governor told “Fox News Sunday.” “Im the Republican that clearly at this point does better against Obama than any other Republican.”
What is the weasel-word in this comment? Easy one. Notice he does not refer to himself as a CONSERVATIVE. Speaks volumes. Newt does a better job a putting down Obama that Huck does....over and over.
I like Mike Huckabee, but...... Nah, I don’t thinks so.
Only MAYBE as a VP selection to satisfy southern conservatives and to play a “good cop - bad cop” game on the lame DemoRAT candidate.
I’m telling you, we keep this kind of stuff up, Obama and the ‘Rats are going to stomp us into chicken droppings in 2012.
Just what we need, another RINO presidency. The last one beat us down to a nub and the current president is doing his best to apply the deathblow.
Sara Palin is clearly the best choice, it’s too bad the current Republican party has bought into the media demonization of her and are scared to endorse her. They don’t understand that the people know what’s right, we don’t need endorsement by the talking heads. Listening to them is how we get horrible McCain vs. Hussein match-ups, which are lose-lose every time. They’d love to have the next candidate be another loser like Huckabee or Romney (if Mass. will have him in their govt., he’s definitely not right for America).
That’s rather eerie.
Which is what they obviously intend to do.
Why do I get the feeling that in 2012 it will be the same clown show running again (McLame, Huckabee, Romney, Palin)?!?
Insanity. Just buy them all clown shoes already.
That parole you authorized for the criminal that then murdered four cops is the nail in your presidential coffin, Huck. Stick to playing the guitar.
He believes the media polls and does NOT KNOW YET how they media picks the weakest (R) candidate! Teenagers already have knowledge of that. How dumb can one be and still breathe?
Who's a good candidate?
The most conservative one.
At first I thought this was Semmens’ satire, OK. its not. Our problem lately is that Americans seem to want wimps/wusses for President. What we need is strong leadership, emphasis on the leader. Huckabee? leader?? I don’t see it in him or Romney. Actually I don’t see it out there at all at the moment. Where is the next Reagan? Some talk the talk but will they walk the walk if elected?
You must be king. None of them can run for president for 2010.
The Best thing About Hucklebee is his fine looking Keyboardist
Who do you like?
But, hey, King is cool.
I didn’t like him the first time around and I don’t like him now.
Palin isn’t a media star - stop with the liberal talking points!
Unfortunately, he has said that he's not interested. I hope he changes his mind, though I admire his dedication to the job the voters elected him to. It shows that he puts his duty above his personal ambition, something that is virtually non-existent in politics today.
Might be true if he were an actual Republican instead of a populist demagogue.
Sometimes you CAN reduce complex issues to TOO low a common denominator.
His so-called “Fair” tax scheme, for example...
McCain was too old then. He even knows he is too old now. He won't run. The other three are a safe bet along with Keyes, and Paul. I'm with you, bring on the fresh blood.
I’m going to vote for Palin come hell or high water.
Chris Christie needs to finish the job and his term. I’m tired of political hacks quitting to run for the next job before they’ve finished the last one and proven themselves. I agree that he has what it takes though.
It’s interesting that you stick those two together. Huck isn’t worthy to shine Sarah’s shoes.
I meant it is a safe bet that they will run. SNORT!!!
Agreed. I'd pay to see him debate Obama, however. It would be Godzilla vs OBambi.
Singing a differnet tune now than he did a few months back. I really don’t want him to run as he’s too much a RINO.
I agree. She needs the opportunity to finally finish something. Why not the most difficult and powerful position in the world?
Great, the commies and state-run media/polling agencies are going to pick our Presidential candidate again. And it will be a loser, again!
I don’t vote for cop killers or even accessories after the fact.
He’s already demonstrated his lack of executive responsibility.
Oh hell no! What's he going to do, hit him with a base guitar?
Huckabee is delusional.
In what, a pie-eating contest?
He and Palin both work for Fox. He has more experience as Governor. Do you think he and Palin should both go away?
That would be a ‘joke’ poll.
Sarah will offer her support and all her fans will just love him.
