Republicans Poll Confirms Recent Trends;Palin 1st Place &15% Ahead Of Romney With Combined Palin/Huck Support

Politicon Polling polled 573 likely Republican voters as to their preferences for Republican candidate for president 2012.

Palin and Romney were in joint first place at 18% each but the significant factor-as it has been in each of recent polls is that the combined Palin/Huckabee at 35% vote is 15% ahead of Romney. Clearly if Huckabee does not run it must be assumed that the majority of his support would go to Palinshould she run.This would give her an overwhelming victory.

The facts of the matter are that the Palin/Huckabee support is almost equal to the total support of all 9 other candidates bar Romney combined !

Recent polls of GOP suppporters showed a preference in the 36%-40% for the combined Palin/Huckabee vote so this latest is another which again,confirms the trend. The 13% lead the President Obama has over Palin in this poll amongst all voters is meaningless as all that matters initially is winning the GOP nomination. At one point Ronald reagan was 25% behind President Carter so the Obama/Palin matchup should be disregarded.

Here is the poll result
