Can Huntsman's 'secret weapons' help his poll numbers?

(CNN) - As the most recognizable political offspring so far in the 2012 election cycle, the three eldest daughters of GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman are trying to use Twitter, television and YouTube to get votes for their dad.

The self-identified "secret weapon" of the former Utah governor's campaign tweet their campaign observations, appear on national television and recently parodied a controversial Web video form rival candidate Herman Cain.

    The Huntsman family seem to be lovely people. Whether or not they represent mainstreet America is an entirely different matter, and one that will probably not be overlooked should his poll numbers raise and he become the actual "nominee".

    Respective of his family life, that Jon Huntsman has publicly endorsed Paul Ryan's plan to privatize medicare/social security is reason enough for me not to vote for him.

    In a word no.....Listen Huntsman is a good guym and all, but he worked for Obama for 2 years touting his policies, he's also pro civil unions for the lbgt community.....Conservatives don't want that period.

    If Jon Huntsman win the nomination we will vote for him in 2012, If is very big here

    From conservative point Jon Huntsman is real conservative and smart. family members knocking on the door for vote Old style but I like that idea

    Frustration and sad part past 6 weeks FOX ,conservative radio talk shows and conservative pundits spend time on defending Herman Cain, Rick Perry and Newt. They didn’t try to sell Jon Huntsman agenda

    I would say that Lynda hit the nail. Her dog can hunt. The last thing America needs at this time is a Chairman-In-Chief. The true strength of America has never been about the dollar. It has always been the strength and resolve of The People.

    John Huntsman seems like a smart guy, BUT, he is proposing some of the same failed policies that other republicans are proposing, tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation. Don't be fooled!
