    Interesting how popular Mitt is with the ladies. That won't hurt him. It doesn't matter though. He has excellent support for someone who has really not been out there getting a great deal of exposure. When he does though, and people get familiar with his command of the issues he will be a star. There is now a vacuum for leadership in the Federal government and he can be the guy to step forward and provide the strong brand of leadership people will be excited about again.

    if THIS is what the GOP has to offer in 2012, unless President Obama really just falls on his behind and everything starts to go bad, or the country once again falls for the GOP "fear tactics" I don't see him not winning another term. Newt and Sarah are jokes to say the best while Mitt is going to have to spend half his campaign trying to say why Obamacare is worse than the plan he had in Mass.

    Thankfully, I won't be called upon to choose from what must be called the most insipid group of *pants on fire* GOPer presidential wannabes to-date. Not one of them is gifted enough to out shine the other - either in words or deeds - let alone have the ability to out perform President Obama. Good luck choosing, GOPers. Looks as if you all have your work cut out for you during this election cycle.

    Huckabee seems to be gettng shafted by the media. He won the survey, and yet his picture is not up there with the rest of them. You don't hear much about him in the news. I wonder how come, if the survey so heavily favored him?

    So basically, support is waning for all of the republicans since 2008 levels, back when it already wasn't very high? The only respectable, principled republican is Ron Paul (not his idiot son, Rand), and the Repubs try to act like HE is the crazy one....

    These public opinion percentage polls mean literally nothing. All that matters is which of the candidates is popular in Iowa and New Hampshire, and can get momentum going in the primaries. Thats what our political system is all about sadly. Mike Huckabee can get whatever percentage of the public he wants, but it doesn't matter unless he is popular in key states.

    Wow, Huckabee's actually got the best chances right now for the GOP? Color me surprised. Although between him, Palin, Romney and Newt, I'd probably lean towards the Huckster too.

    I hope that Palin gets the nomination for the Republican party. This would make Obama a shoe-in to win the next president election.

  10. GOP = Greed Over People

    Romney would be the best nominee, but the backwoods, backward Baptists will never pull the lever for a magic underwear wearing Mormon.

    Huckabee, professes to be a Baptist "christian", although his actions portray differently, he will be a shoo-in among the backwoods, backward Baptists. However, most American voters are uncomfortable with a leader that must hear a mythical voice before making any decision.

    Now that Palin is loosing her "beauty pageant" looks and adding multiple chins thereby proving beauty is only skin-deep and exposing her very ugly and racist soul so badly, even some of the backwoods Baptists can see it clearly.

    Newt? Well Niewt is a newt and one that cannot keep that little salamander contains in his slacks, although, this is no longer political death if Ensign and Sanford represent the new backwoods, backward Baptist's "cHristian" standard on marital fidelity or infidelity.

    Looks to be a toss-up between two outstanding ethical individuals, the Huckster or Newt.

    Newt's trying to not look like the nasty, scheming jerk he is; Palin's trying to look like she's thinking; and "silver spoon" Mitt is trying to look like a "regular guy."

    Guess when all your policies are proven failures, all you've got left to offeris your fabricated image ...
