Day By Day by Chris Muir

The South Carolina GOP Presidential debate last night was disappointing. None of the REAL candidates bothered to show up for this Fox News sponsored event.

I mean REALLY who can take Rick Santorum, Gary Johnson or Ron Paul seriously?

The GOP Presidential race is getting a late start and it is probably for the best. The REAL candidates will be savaged by an Obama supporitng MSM and why give them a head start prior to the summer.

So, who do I think will run?

Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Mitch Daniels, Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty.

Who will be the nominee?

Mike Huckabee or Mitch Daniels.

But, we will see, since it it not clear at this time whether Huckabee or Daniels will even run.

President 2012 GOP Poll Watch: Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee Lead – Palin and Trump = Not So Much

Posted Posted in Donald Trump, Jon Huntsman, Mike Huckabee, Mitch Daniels, Mitt Romney, Polling, President 2012, Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty

According to the latest Quinnipiac National Poll.
By healthy margins, American voters say they would consider or be enthusiastic about backing former governors Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee for president, but 58 percent would never support Sarah Palin or Donald Trump, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

No surprise here.

Sarah Palin and Donald Trump will NOT be candidates, in any case.

The race will either be Huckabee Vs. Romney Vs. Daniels or Huckabee Vs. Romney Vs. Pawlenty. And, Jon Huntsman will be in the mix somewhere.

President 2012 Florida GOP Poll Watch: Romney 26% Huckabee 12% Gingrich 11% Palin 9%

Posted Posted in Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee, Mitch Daniels, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Polling, President 2012, Sarah Palin

According to the latest ARG Poll.

This is the third poll in less than a month that has been especially favorable for Mitt Romney. Here is the other poll.

With Romney having a virtual lock on New Hampshire and Nevada, and him polling well in Pennsylvania and Arizona is Romney setting himslef up as the front runner?

Perhaps.

And, what affect will this Florida polling have on a possible Mitch Daniels or even Mike Hucakbee’s candidacy?

A good day for Mitt Romney.

President 2012 Arizona Poll Watch: Mitt Romney 48% Vs. Barack Obama 44%

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee, Mitch Daniels, Newt Gingrich, Polling, President 2012, Sarah Palin

According to the latest PPP Poll.

Job Approval Vs. Disapproval:

  • President Barack Obama – 46% Vs. 50%

Favorable Vs. Unfavorable:

  • Newt Gingrich – 26% Vs. 59%
  • Mike Huckabee – 35% Vs. 48%
  • Sarah Palin – 32% Vs. 62%
  • Mitt Romney – 45% Vs. 37%
  • Donald Trump – 24% Vs. 66%

Interesting that Mitt Romney is the only GOP candidate in positive favorable territory.

General election Head to Head:

  • Barack Obama – 47% Vs. Newt Gingrich – 40%
  • Barack Obama – 46% Vs. Mike Huckabee – 44%
  • Barack Obama – 49% Vs. Sarah Palin – 38%
  • Mitt Romney – 48% Vs. Barack Obama – 44%
  • Barack Obama – 48% Vs. Donald Trump – 36%

Again, only Mitt Romney leads President Obama. This is the third state in the last month, including Nevada and Pennsylvania that Romney is the ONLY Republican beating Obama.

There has been speculation that Sarah Palin may move from Alaska to Arizona. But, she would not receive a warm welcome as only 27% say they would like her to move to Arizona, whereas 57% hope she stays away. 16% don’t offer an opinion.

Again, it seems Arizona voters are unhappy with the GOP Field. Will the addition of Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels make a difference? Or is Mitt Romney good enough?

The entire poll is here.

President 2012: Enter Mitch Daniels, Mike Huckabee and Michelle Bachman into the Race

Posted Posted in Michele Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, Mitch Daniels, Mitt Romney, William Kristol

According to Bill Kristol at the Weekly Standard.

Mitch Daniels is likely, I’m told, to announce his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination in the next couple of weeks. Michelle Bachman will, I think, enter the race in June. And it now looks as if Mike Huckabee is also going to run.

Saturday evening, while tout Washington was “enjoying” the White House Correspondents Dinner—and while some of us, I might add, were truly enjoying the lovely wedding of Mary Katharine Ham and Jake Brewer—Mike Huckabee was speaking to the annual meeting of the National Rifle Association in Pittsburgh. It was the right place to be if you’re interested in the GOP presidential nomination. And by all accounts Huckabee gave a very effective speech, striking a populist tone while vigorously taking on Obama’s agenda across the board, linking social and economic issues, and asserting “I want you to know that I stand here tonight as a gun-clinger and as a God-clinger unapologetically.”

Mike Huckabee will enter as the front runner, especially in Iowa. Will Mitch Daniels compete there since Michelle Bachmann is a native Iowan or gear up for New Hampshire, where he will go up against Mitt Romney?

The next few weeks should get very interesting.

President 2012 Iowa GOP Poll Watch: 26 Per Cent Want Someone Else

Posted Posted in Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Polling, President 2012, Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty

According to the latest University of Iowa Hawkeye Poll.

  • Mike Huckabee – 16%
  • Mitt Romney – 15%
  • Sarah Palin – 10%
  • Newt Gingrich – 4%
  • Tim Pawlenty – 5%
  • Someone Else – 26%
  • Don’t Know – 11%

Another poll indicative of the fact that the GOP Presidential race is wide open. The filed will solidify in a couple of weeks and definitely by mid-June.
