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.

I dig Sarah. but Presidential material, she is not. Same with Huck.
I guess at this moment, Romney has the best chance. But I”m holding out hope for someone else. A man’s man, someone with huevos. Someone like Ronald Reagan.
Just how big exactly are these guy’s egos anyway? Huckabee could beat Obama? He is living on Mars.
I like Huckabee okay as a person; but this obervation almost deserve a ‘barf’ alert.
It's one thing not to agree with Huckabee on certain issues but to imply he is a bigot is not only nonsense, it is the sort of horse manure one expects from liberal nit wit.
I won’t vote for him.
How’s this then, the man is a Christian socialist used car salesman.
” A glib talker can get power by politics, church or a media gig.
Who is all four? “
Well stated. That’s exactly how my wife and I view him.
Did you see the show? I just saw it and this gives a false notion of what he actually meant.
What he was said was that even though polls show him the most likely to defeat Obama, there are other considerations that give him pause about running, such as the debt he still has from last time. But he agreed he had not ruled it out.
The MSM, as usual, is not being fair to a Republican. What else is new.
I wouldn’t trust Huckster with a 50 ft poll.
He can just Huck off as far as I’m concerned.
Why is that hard to understand?
I’d never vote for Huckabee.
I would like to vote for a big, mean, conservative, military man. General Patraeus comes to mind. But it looks like that option is over for him now. He will be stuck in and getting blamed for Afghanistan for years to come.
Maybe getting him out of the country and away from ideas on the presidency was the reason why all of this BS Rolling Stone magazine stuff happened. It seemed kind of contrived and silly to me.
Obama won’t be running. Probably Hillary.
Wasn’t he the guy responsible for the DEATHS of 5 Seattle area police officers, due to his INABILITY to LISTEN to prosecutors who, essentially, said that would happen?
Oh well, no one’s perfect, and the kids of these slain cops should just forgive and forget.
Huck in 2012!!! (right)
From 2008 on, every GOP candidate will have to stand tall and strong against the battles of the next 10 years.
Huck would have trouble standing up to a donut.
Name recognition does not translate into an electoral win. Stick with your show Huck.
I didn't mean to imply anything . I can see I made it plain enough for all religious nitwit bigots to understand . Religious prejudice is Un-American .
Yeah, we should just run another bland establishment hack Republican who'll continue the socialist agenda.
Yup. Just like last time. FR hated McLame and was full of Fredheads. Fred split the conservative vote, McLame won the nomination, and Fred backed him big time.
oh yea... because he has been at the front of the fight against the progressives all along...
oh wait, that wasn’t him... that was Palin.
just another effort by the GOP to try and stay relative by diminishing what Sarah has done.
please huckabee, sit down and shutup
Forget about it.
Palin was elected governor by siding with democrats against republicans. She invented Alaska ethics complaints.
You should NEVER say this outloud on FR.
Thank you for posting that picture.Rinos need to be blasted with that image nationally.
He's been all over the globull warming scammers.
As a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, minority leader of the Oklahoma Senate, mayor of Tulsa, congressman from Oklahomas First Congressional District, to his present role as Oklahomas senior U.S. Senator, Jim has served Oklahomans with pride and honor.
From his post as the second ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Jim has gained a reputation as an expert on defense and national security issues. Not only is Jim a strong supporter of Oklahomas defense industry and military community, he has also been a tireless advocate for providing greater resources, the necessary equipment, and proper training to our military personnel fighting the War on Terror and combating global threats to our nations security. Jim has been to Iraq and Afghanistan as much as any other member of Congress since the beginning of the War on Terror.
Jim is a lifelong Oklahoman who grew up in Tulsa and graduated from the University of Tulsa with a degree in economics. He served in the U.S. Army and has been a small businessman working in aviation, real estate, and insurance for over 30 years.
Inhofe has been married 50 years to his wife, Kay, and has four grown children and twelve grandchildren. During his service in Washington, he commutes back home to Oklahoma almost every weekend.
Us conservatives in the south are not wild about him either.
you do know that both the democrat and republican parties have been infiltrated by progressives. just because someone claims to be a republican means nothing these days.
are they actually for smaller govt? Sarah proved, through her actions while governor, that she is.
the GOP and the dems are pushing for bigger govt which will give them more power. we need people that will REDUCE their power, not increase it
Rest assured, this administration only sees one opponent at present who is “Presidential Material”.
ONLY IN HIS DREAMS!!
Huckabee thinks that because he can get a following on TV - he must be popular all over the country.
Beck gets probably 10 times the viewers .. so just as I predicted when Huckabee first went on TV - he’s using this position of his program to run a campaign and to get name recognition.
NO RHINO has a snowball’s chance in hell in the current atmosphere in America. Sadly, he’s ignorantly unaware of what’s going on around him.
Draft the Fatman
She sure did, she quit! Government smaller by one. She quit because she was now on the receiving end of the ethics complaints.
The MSM just loves to publish positive stories about Huck, which tells you exactly what you need to know.
Huck needs to look at his infamous family photo again and realize it would do to him what the bunny suit did to John Effin Kerry.
He said it on Fox.
Sorry ... next?
Who do you support?
So you think that Duncan Hunter was a good candidate, last time.
Is this crazy, or what?
The left is foisting the Huckster on us just like they foisted Juan on us, and for the same reason: they know that he will be easily destroyed if and when he gets the GOP nomination.
But there's no chance Huckabee will beat 0bama if people are so clueless as to nominate him.
We need a president with courage. Name one courageous thing Mitt Romney has done in his entire life.
I agree also. So far Palin is the only politician I’v seen in the last few years with any balls! well...her and Arizona governor who again happens to be a woman. whats up with the men? can’t find their spines?
So, isn't wise to suspicious of Islam?
That isn't accurate, either, considering Huckabee did cut taxes extensively in Arkansas and favors a flat tax.
If you want to say he is another George W. Bush, that would be more accurate.
