Interesting results from a recent Zogby poll of potential Republican candidates for…you guessed it…2012. Sarah Palin #1 amongst Republicans and Mitt Romney #1 overall isn’t all that surprising. What I did find surprising is Bobby Jindal at #3.
Now, those of you reading this blog shouldn’t be all that surprised. If you’re a conservative net nerd like I am, you know all aboot Jindal. But I’m pretty sure Zogby didn’t just poll the blogosphere, so the fact that Jindal came it at number three…and not all that far away from the #1 and #2 spots, shows that people are starting to take notice before Jindal is even trying all that hard.
Also of note is that Huckabee comes in fourth. The reason given was that Palin outperforms him in all his strong demographics. I’m sure her not airing out her grievances in public probably helps her with the base too.
That leaves me with two three questions:
1. When do Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin start running against each other? CPAC?
2. When does Next Gingrich start to get involved?
3. Who else is going to come along? Mark Sanford? Mitch Daniels?
UPDATE: May the jumping on the bandwagon commence.
