There have been three big polls come out in the past week concerning possible Republican presidential candidates and 2012 match-ups. Governor Mike Huckabee continues to excel in this early polling data when matched up against possible Republican primary opponents and President Obama, and Huckabee also consistently leads the pack when it comes to favorabilities and room for growth in the undecideds.
The Public Policy Polling’s recent 2012 match-up against Barack Obama shows Huckabee beating the incumbent President while being the only Republican challenger viewed with a positive favorability.
The latest Gallup poll shows that Huckabee is the Republican candidate with the highest favorables among ALL voters.
And lastly, the polling data released today by Politico shows incredible strength for Mike Huckabee as a possible 2012 contender. He leads all other GOP challengers in favorabilities across the board with Republicans, Independents, and all voters while also having the most room for growth.
While it is unclear whether or not the Governor will compete again in 2012, it seems like this recent article in The New Yorker has fueled new speculation for another presidential run. Even Huckabee himself on a recent Fox News Sunday interview gave an indication that 2012 has not been ruled out and he realizes his strength in the polls. He is now starting a new Fox News show that is sure to give conflicting signals. Is Huckabee content with broadcasting conservative ideals over the airwaves or is he really following Ronald Reagan’s path to the presidency?
