    Poll: GOP candidates top Obama in hypothetical 2012 race

    Poll: GOP candidates top Obama in hypothetical 2012 race - CNN.com

    In a hypothetical 2012 matchup, Huckabee leads Obama 52 - 44 percent, while Romney has a 50-45 point advantage, which is within the poll's sampling error. Obama holds a 49-47 percent margin over Gingrich.

    The poll indicates that four in 10 have a favorable opinion of Palin, with nearly half saying they have an unfavorable view.

    Romney has a 36 percent favorable rating and a 29 percent unfavorable rating, with 35 percent unsure.

    Forty-two percent say they see Huckabee in a positive light, with 26 percent saying they hold a negative view and just over three in 10 are unsure.

    Gingrich has 32 percent favorable rating, with four in 10 saying they have an unfavorable view, and 28 percent unsure.
    CNN also conducted exit polls on Election Day in some of the states that vote first in the presidential primary calendar.

    In Iowa, 21 percent of Republicans questioned as they exited the voting booth said that Romney was their likely choice in the 2012 Iowa caucuses, with Huckabee also at 21 percent, Palin at 18 percent, Gingrich at 7 percent and one in five saying they would support another possible candidate.

    In New Hampshire, 39 percent of Republicans said that Romney is their likely choice in the state's primary, with Palin at 18 percent, Huckabee at 11 percent, Gingrich at eight percent and 19 percent saying they would back another possible contender.

    Twenty-five percent of South Carolina Republicans say Palin would be their likely primary choice, followed by Huckabee at 24 percent, Romney at 21 percent and Gingrich at 10 percent.
    Nominating Palin would just about guarantee Obama a second term.

    Wishing Ms. Palin complete and total success in getting the GOP Presidential nomination in 2012. If it helps, I might even send her a few dollars. Her nomination would make me very very happy.

    I think the GOP's best bet is a

    Palin/Bachman
    Palin/O'Donnel tickets.

    They'd beat Obama for sure

    I'd like to see Rubio on the ticket. with two years experience...he'd be more qualified than Obama was when he ran.

    I think our best bet is to nominate a more moderate candidate and let Palin stump for them with the tea partiers. If we can have that happen, there's no way we won't win the White House back from that thug.

    So you are willing to use Ms. Palin like so much kleenex for your own purposes and throw her away? WOW! I wonder how the former Alaskan governor will feel about that prospect?
