CNN Poll: GOP 2012 field still up in the air

Washington (CNN) - Call it a sign of how unsettled the GOP presidential field remains: Two of the three people at the top of new national poll in the battle for the Republican nomination may not even run for the White House. And a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey also suggests that there is not a lot of enthusiasm about any of the major candidates.

According to the poll, which was released Friday, 16 percent of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say they would most likely support Rudy Giuliani as their party's nominee. One point behind, at 15 percent is Mitt Romney, with Sarah Palin coming in at 13 percent.

Pawlenty spins low poll numbers

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty said he sees his low national poll numbers as an opportunity for his candidacy.

"I like the fact that these folks who are established, well known and yet and there's no real favorite in the face," Pawlenty said Friday on CNN's "American Morning." "So there's a ton of upside for my candidacy and it gives me a chance to introduce myself and put my record from Minnesota out there."

5 reasons why Sarah Palin may be ready to shake up 'uninspired' race

Washington (CNN) - Alaska's "mama grizzly" is coming to the big screen and quite possibly back to the campaign trail, a move that would shake up a GOP presidential primary field that some Republicans complain is "uninspiring."
