Yes, it's early, but here's a new CNN poll of the GOP presidential field:
According to the poll, 21 percent of Republicans say they would most likely support former Arkansas Gov. and 2008 GOP White House candidate Mike Huckabee for their party's 2012 presidential nomination, with 20 percent saying they'd back former Massachusetts Gov. and 2008 Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, 14 percent supporting Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, and 12 percent backing former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia.
The remaining candidates whose names were asked in the question were all in single digits, led by Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, who also ran for the GOP presidential nomination the last time around, followed by Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana at 3 percent, and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania at 2 percent.
Of course, polls in the early primary states--Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida--matter more than national polls (just ask Rudy Giuliani). As for hypothetical 2012 match-ups against Obama, Huckabee and Romney lead the president by 8 points and 5 points, respectively, while Palin and Gingrich trail Obama by 7 points and 2 points, respectively:
Again, it's early and there's a good chance that none of these candidates will be the GOP nominee in 2012. I'm a little surprised CNN didn't poll Mitch Daniels.
