Poll: Huckabee Leads Palin, Gingrich, Romney‎

A recent poll of likely Iowa caucus goers showed 2008 Iowa caucus winner Mike Huckabee leading the way with 20 points.

Polling company We Ask America showed Sarah Palin followed with 14 points. Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney registered with 13 points. A relatively new name in the mix was Donald Trump. He registered with 9 points.

The man who co-founded a website urging Trump to run, Michael Cohen, said 9 points is not bad.

mike-huckabee“The numbers clearly speak for themselves and it’s a positive reflection of the message being disseminated by www.shouldtrumprun.com. Clearly the grass roots movement is growing,” Cohen said Tuesday.

Trump has said he will make his decision in June. That delayed timing may work for bigger names like Trump, but KCCI political analyst Dennis Goldford said that’s two months too late for others.

“People have got to decide by April whether to do this or not. Because it does take time to get organization up and running and that August straw poll becomes extremely important,” Goldford said.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said Tuesday in Des Moines that he will decide in April. Barbour was visiting Iowa Republicans at the Statehouse, gauging support and testing the waters for a potential run.

“I’ve got about a six-week sprint here. Some of it here and some of it in other places of course,” Barbour said.

Eleven percent of Iowans polled said they were uncertain about which candidate they would choose. Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Haley Barbour and Mitch Daniels all registered below 5 points.

The poll was conducted last week and had a margin of error of 3.29 percent.

    Huckabee is terrible.

    He’s such a jerk, too.

    He’s still retarded jealous over Romney for no reason any reasonable person could ever figure out.

    He’s an unreasonable sourpuss.

    He lied during the last presidential debates, too.

    He also ragged on Bush for his own gain.

    So did McCain – another jerk.

    I wish those two would stop destroying the GOP.

    The Bush presidents are one of the best things that ever happened for America in modern history, along with Reagan. The majority of the people got it right with those 3.

    Romney was the only one who showed any real worth during the debates.

    He gave W. his good due every time he had the chance.

    Romney is a good man for refusing the ‘media political wind’ opportunity to put a good man down for his own gain.

    I will gladly vote for Romney in Nov. of 2012.
