Gallup polled Republicans with respect to Republican prospects for 2012. 71 would seriously consider supporting Huckabee, 65 for Romney and Palin, 60 for Newt, Pawlenty 32, Barbour 26. They didn’t even bother with Jindal.
So even their top prospects are being rejected by about 30-40 percent of their own party.
Also, none of the GOP hopefuls got above 40 percent from the nation as a whole, or from the all-important independents. And no candidate got above 50 percent on the question of whether they are qualified to be president.
These clowns have two years to find someone who can go toe to toe with Obama, and they are failing laughably.
