    Huckabee Has Slight Edge, Palin Down, in GOP '12 PreferencesRomney, Palin would tie if Huckabee does not runby Jeffrey M. Jones
    PRINCETON, NJ -- Mike Huckabee tops a large list of potential GOP presidential candidates in current support for the party's 2012 nomination, with 19% of Republicans saying they are most likely to back him. This gives Huckabee a slight edge over Mitt Romney (15%). Sarah Palin is now at 12% after receiving 16% support in three prior Gallup polls. Newt Gingrich is the only other potential candidate who registers double-digit support. Sixteen percent of Republicans currently have no preference.

    Whatever we may like, it's increasingly looking like a more moderate Republican is going to have the best chance of winning in 2012.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I won't vote for any of the first 5 on that list unless I have to.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    And of course, "being nominated" is your definition of being forced to? lol

    damn straight. If the assholes in Iowa and New Hampshire and the other early states - especially those with open primaries do not let me vote for my candidate of choice - then I will vote for whom ever is the better candidate - and compared to Barry - SATAN would be a better candidate.

    How did a moderate Republican work out for us last time?
    How is obama working out for you?

    I'll vote for the candidate with the most conservative record/credentials - which surprisingly enough will most likely happen to have an R next to his name.

    Huckabee is a populist - he is NOT a conservative.

    only thing conservative about him is his support for the Fair Tax. Can't stand the guy.
