The poll shows that the 2012 contest is going to begin right where the 2008 Iowa Caucuses left off, with Mike Huckabee leading Mitt Romney. Huckabee comes out on top of the poll garnering 22 percent, Romney finishes second with 18 percent, and Newt Gingrich finishes surprisingly well with 14 percent in third place. Sarah Palin finishes a disappointing fourth with 11 percent. Texas Congressman Ron Paul garnered 5 percent, while Pawlenty, and South Dakota Senator John Thune each received 1 percent.

I'm a Democrat and voted for Obama, but I like Huckabee. I don't think I would vote for him against Obama, but if Obama lost I wouldn't be upset.

As a Republican moving toward LibertarianI'd vote for most Republicans over Obama. Except SP.

I don't think he will run, I don't think he can win, but I am a huge Huck supporter. I know he did things in AR that created some concerns and he is not always truely conservative though most who do not know the history think he is. The perfect person isn't out there, so he comes close in my eyes.

My husbands cousins just left a little while ago after being here 2 days. They are ultra Conservative, makes me look like a socialist and they asked me last night what I thought of him. They both think he might be a good choice. Of course they love Palin as well. Boy did I feel like a fist out of water, 3 against one when discussing Palin...

OMG. I'm a strong republican and I'm from Iowa, but I'd never vote for that NUTJOB. I'd almost, ALOMST, rather vote for Obama.

Mitt Romney will get it. I like to see him go minority on the VP with either Jindal or Marko Rubio.

Huckabee needs to go back on a diet. He wrote a book about losing weight a few years back. Of course Rick Pitino also wrote a book called "Success is a choice"

Ugh. No offense, but I sure hope the GOP can come up with some new blood. Huckabee, McCain and Romeny are going to be seen as duds from 2008.

If that happens I will vote for Obama just for spite.

America doesn't need another RINO.

My first choice would be Newt Gingrich.

Please consider this video on Newt Gingrich first, though.

He has no chance of getting the nomination.

Far too many rising stars in the Conservative party for him to get it.

Nice man, but not Presidential material.
