From Firstread:

http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/11/05/1646644.aspx

Quote
NBC-WSJ GOP pollster Neil Newhouse did a post-election survey last night, and here's what he found: Just 12% of those surveyed believed Palin should be the GOP's new leader; instead 29% of voters said Romney, followed by 20% who say Huckabee. Among GOPers, it was Romney 33%, Huckabee 20% and Palin 18%. Look for more from this survey later today.

Unclear exactly how the question is worded.  I guess the way this blog post phrases it, it might have imply asked who Republicans want as their "new leader" rather than who they want as their 2012 presidential nominee, but it's a fairly similar question.  I guess we'll figure it out once the full poll comes out.

I support Romney right now, there's a decent chance the economy will still be in the tank up to four years form now, he could be our response. Even if it weren't he's a classy and clever guy.

Listen, I'm all about hoping the country sees better days but I won't be supporting Obama in his re-election bid. I'm sad to see that you're already on board.

If the economy is the #1 issue...I could see myself strongly supporting Romney...but it's still early.

I bet Romney takes it. The GOP has thing for people who lost primaries in the past, unlike us Democrats.

33% is probably Romney's ceiling, lol.  it's all could could muster this time around despite having a monopoly on the money.

I strongly suspect that there's not enough room in the primary for both Huckabee and Palin.  I don't think Huckabee wants it anymore anyway.

It won't be any of those three....at least it better not.  Actually, it probably won't matter who the sacrificial lamb is.  Unless Obama totally funks up (which is possible), he'll win again in '12.

Lots of chatter about Bobby Jindal, and I would certainly support him. He's a very bright guy who is extremely articulate. Way too early though.. goodness... we've got plenty of time to worry about this!

I doubt Obama wins reelection, or even renomination. His Keynesianism won't cure the economic crisis, and his commitment to Georgia and Afghanistan will likely get us into another unpopular foreign conflict. That doesn't make for a good reelection campaign.

I would support Bobby Jindal for president.

That's what I was thinking.  I can imagine many scenarios where Obama loses the Presidency in '12, but very few where he fails to get the nomination from his Party.  He'd need to be much worse than Bush and I don't think Obama has that in him.

Don't forget that there is still a primary opponent of his that came very close to winning and is still bitter about her loss.

Even "the evil one" isn't evil enough to try and pull that stunt.  Unless Obama totally screws the pooch, but I think he is smarter than that.  (barring any off the wall scenarios)

Good call.  Huckabee and Palin's supporters are pretty much one in the same, I suspect.  Let's see who else enters.  Jindal?

I have trust problems with Romney, nearly of the magnitude I have with Obama.

I wouldn't underestimate her. it would be the first time a relative of a former president ran against the incumbent in the primary. And also, in the early states, if Hillary could convince most of John Edwards supporters to back her, she would win Iowa and New Hampshire and come close in South Carolina. That could give her enough momentum to be a serious threat for the nomination.
