(CNN) – While some midterm election battles still hang in the balance, the media seems to have already turned the page to 2012.
Potential Republican presidential hopefuls were on the Sunday morning talk shows and the hosts couldn't resist the will you or won't you questioning.
"We've been very humbled by the encouragement we've received back in Indiana and around the country," Indiana Rep. Mike Pence said on ABC's "This Week." "We're intent on taking the coming weeks to really prayerfully consider that, to wait on the Lord, to seek counsel."
Pence said he'll make his decision after the first of the year, the same time frame given by Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
Pawlenty also debunked recent polling that shows him with lower numbers than other Republican 2012ers.
"A lot of those early polls, whether it's me running or somebody else, reflect familiarity, name ID… you see front-runners in the past with similar situations that change over time," Pawlenty said on CNN's "State of the Union." "Early polls I don't think mean much for me or any other potential candidates, especially if you haven't run before and aren't well-known."
New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie reiterated his line that he won't run for president, but he took it a step further Sunday.
"Can you see me as somebody's vice president?" Christie said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "After that question about governor wrecking ball I would feel bad for that poor man or woman."
Christie said he will be governor of New Jersey in 2013, after that, "I'm going to need a job… I have four kids between 7 and 17. I'm working the rest of my life anyway."
In the meantime other potential candidates will continue to travel the country, often to early presidential primary states, to elevate their national standing.
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum was in New Hampshire this week and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will visit South Carolina next month. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney criss-crossed the country before last Tuesday's election. Other frequent flyers include Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
