GOP 2012 Race
Poll out today on the GOP race.
Romney, who was a front-runner for the 2008 nomination, came out on top with 26 percent of respondents. That gives the former Massachusetts Governor a slight advantage over Sarah Palin, who was chosen by 21 percent of the survey voters. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Minority Leader Newt Gingrich got 19 percent and 14 percent respectively, while much smaller numbers said they would support Governors Tim Pawlenty (Minn.) and Haley Barbour (Miss.)
Now you can see the econ/business wing of the GOP (Gingrich + Romney) and the social con (Palin + Huckabee). Interestingly add both of those camps up and each adds up to 40% even steven. 20% on the outside. So we can see how this is going to go. Round 1 The Semis: Romney v. Gingrich with the winner of that taking the other portion (basically) of the intramural. Same with Huck v. Palin. Then Round 2: The Finals. And probably the difference decided by that undecided 20% or so percent.
