In my opinion, this is simply devastating.

MODERATOR: “You seem to have backed away from mandates on a national basis.”
ROMNEY: “No, no, I like mandates. The mandates work.”

PPP: Obama Struggling Against Romney & Huckabee In 2012 Poll

A new poll from Public Policy Polling shows that Barack Obama is running neck and neck against both Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney:

Ron Paul Wins CPAC Straw Poll, Palin Comes In A Distant Third

That’s the word from Politico:
Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll today, ending Mitt Romney’s streak and serving notice that about a third of the attendees at the gathering — and a good chunk of those driving the conservative revival — stand pretty well outside the Republican Party mainstream.
Still, Romney scored second at 22%, the [...]

Gallup/USA Today: Huckabee Leads Republican Contenders For 2012

A new Gallup/USA Today poll shows Mike Huckabee leading among both Republicans and national voters as a whole for the GOP nomination in 2012:

More bad news for Palin-istas from the latest Rasmussen Report poll:
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s forthcoming autobiography has been at the top of the Amazon book charts for weeks, and it hasn’t even been released yet. At least in the eyes of the political Left, she is now perhaps America’s most visible national Republican.

Huckabee Leads GOP 2012 Contenders As Palin Fades

In the immediate aftermath of her bizarre and still inexplicable decision to quit as Alaska’s Governor, Sarah Palin was in second place behind Mitt Romney in a poll of Republicans about their preference among candidates for the 2012 nomination.
A new Rasmussen poll, though, shows that Palin has faded to third place behind Mike Huckabee and [...]

A Creationist Litmus Test For Republican Nominees In 2012 ?

Secular Right looks at the evidence:
In any case, I’m on the record as saying that predictions for 2012 are very premature. But, it looks like 3 of the front-runners for the G.O.P. nomination are rather frank Creationists (Palin, Huckabee and Pawlenty). I’m skeptical about any of these as likely candidates (i.e., if you had to [...]
