(CNN) - Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Sunday he remains undecided about another presidential run in 2012, but called the possibility "less likely than more likely."
Appearing on "FOX News Sunday," Huckabee noted the election is almost three years away and that, regardless of what happens between now and then, President Barack Obama will be a tough opponent.
"It's hard to say. A lot of it depends on how the elections turn out next year," Huckabee said of the 2010 mid-term vote expected to bring some Republican gains in Congress.
A recent USA Today/Gallup poll showed Huckabee was the front-runner among possible Republican nominees for 2012. However, Huckabee said he would need assurances that the Republican Party would unite behind his candidacy, unlike 2008 when he was considered an outsider by the GOP mainstream.
"It's less likely than more likely," Huckabee said of running for the GOP nomination again. Besides, he said, he's got a good job now.
"The reason I wouldn't is this FOX gig I've got right now ... is really, really wonderful," Huckabee said of his talk show on the network.
"Jumping into the pool, you've got to make sure there's some water in it," he said, later adding: "It's a wonderful experience, but I am nowhere near ready to say that's what I want to do three years from now."
