Obama 47
Huckabee 44

Obama 46
Romney 41

Obama 49
Gingrich 40

Obama 48
Paul 39

Obama 52
Palin 40

Obama 50
Bush 36

Obama 48
Trump 34

Palin outperforming Jeb Bush is quite hilarious. A generic moderate Republican leads Obama by two, but clearly the GOP doesn't have a candidate like that.

You forgot Obama vs. GWB:  48-44

It says something about the republican field when one of their least popular presidents (since Nixon basically) is doing better than almost all of them, and even then only doing a single point worse than Huckabee.

This poll gives hope to candidates like Daniels and Huntsman. If they could ever break out and get some big attention, they could be formidable opponents to Obama.

Of course, breaking out means winning one of the first four (IA, NH, NV, SC) and that seems very unlikely unless Romney just crumbles.

Which is extremely likely if a serious challenger emerges.  His "coalition" isn't pro-Romney, it's anti-Palin.  As it stands, I would put a large amount of money on a darkhorse like Daniels or Huntsman winning the nomination.

It depends.  If Huckabee or even Palin is running, then I wouldn't bet on a darkhorse. Huckabee would win Iowa (or if he isn't running, Palin would), Romney wins New Hampshire and then Nevada, and South Carolina will almost certainly go to Huckabee or Palin, depending on which one won Iowa.  There would be no room for anybody else.

If those two aren't running, then one of the unknowns going to emerge as the conservative candidate in Iowa. (much like Huckabee in 2008).

Reading the 3012 boards dulls one's sense of irony.

Seriously. How many times can we read about the Obamachine 3000 pulling ahead of the Reagantronix QLZ in the race for Mars Mutant Colony's 48 electoral votes? Sheesh!

how is huckabee doing so well? I'd think that he would get below 40 percent in WA, OR, CA, PA, NJ, MA, ME, VT, NH, CT, RI, NJ, MD, DE, VA, IL, IA, MN, WI, NV, and CO.

Are Republicans hardening in their preferences? This seems to be much better than before.

Wow, I'm amazed (though pleasantly surprised) that The Donald is doing so poorly.

Those are good numbers for Huckabee and Romney especially in comparison to most everything else we've seen recently.

What are you talking about Duke?  Things are great so far.   I do have to cling to God no matter what.  I have nothing against this at all,  but in my class there are 9 blacks and 4 whites.  African Americans are quite prevalent in that part of Tulsa.  I don't mind it at all,  but it is an interesting fact in white Oklahoma.

     Huckabee has charisma, which is a huge factor in winning for any candidate. If he were less extreme & Obama were less charismatic, Huckabee would be leading comfortably.

It would help if he weren't so awful looking and had a better voice, better presence, etc.
