Romney and Palin atop New Poll
Via Politico: Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin jump to top in new Gallup poll
With Mike Huckabee’s exit from the race, Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin are now on top of the Republican field, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday.
Twenty percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters say they’d support the former Massachusetts governor, while 18 percent say they’d support the former Alaska governor.
Newt Gingrich comes in third place with 11 percent.
How much of this is shifts in opinion because Huckabee and Trump are no longer in the polls and how much is name recognition is not clear.
