    Exclamation Poll: Huckabee, Gingrich, Palin or Pawlenty?

    There is any interesting discussion going on over at Mitt Romney Central; the poll posted there proposes the following hypothetical:


    Romney does not run in 2012. There are four candidates who have composed formal campaigns to win the GOP nomination Huckabee, Palin, Gingrich, and Pawlenty. You are standing in the booth, ballot in hand. Who do you cast it for? Sorry no write-ins here. (Of course this poll is aimed at Romney supporters, but if you are not among them feel free to vote up your candidate

    I wanted to see what y'all thought about this hypothetical... please reply with sound reasons why or why not a particular candidate would be good or bad for a run against Obama in 2012 (2011)

    Of these choices?

    The only one that has a shot is Pawlenty.

    The rest are far to polarizing and will scare away independents.

    I like Huckabee the best of those four. But I'm not a Republican, and will probably vote for Obama over any of them.

    I can't. This is important.

    Newt! If Newt ran, everyone else might as well pack up and go home. PBO will be irrelevant by 2012. The only question in 2012 will be, "which Republican is going to win the primary".

    I don't know a whole lot about Pawlenty, I'd be willing to hear him out. Gingrich I wouldn't discount right off the bat. The other two are absolute "no"'s. Huckabee is kinda crazy and I'm not sure he isn't looking to infuse religion into the government. And Palin is an idiot, the further she is away from any power, the better.

    Thousand dollars, baby! We can put it on paper. I ain't skeered. Call your lawyer and get it drawn up.

    If Newt and Obama debated it would be a bloody massacre. Barry wouldn't stand a chance...

    I lean towards Pawlenty, although I think Newt is better qualified. However, with Newt's personal baggage, he would be torn to shreds during the campaign.

    Huckabee - I liked him until he said he would change the Constitution for Jesus. That was it. I will never vote for him after that.

    Palin - A complete idiot. No.Way.Ever.

    My vote will once again be for Ron Paul.
