USAToday says it's "fun for political junkies" to pick the 2012 GOP nominee! (Palin leads!)
CNN poll gives Palin slight advantage over others for 2012 GOP nomination

We'll say it before you do: It's ridiculous to take any polls about the 2012 presidential race seriously.

But they're still fun for political junkies.

CNN and Opinion Research just released the results of a Dec. 1-2 national poll of 460 Republicans. They were asked about some of the potential contenders for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination and whether they would be "very" or "somewhat" likely to support each one. It wasn't an either/or survey. Respondents were simply asked about each person in turn and whether they would or would not "support them if they decided to run:"

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, got a 67% "very/somewhat likely" score.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee: 65%.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney: 61%

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani: 57%.

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich: 52%.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal: 44%.

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist: 32%.

I am a "political junkie" and I think it's not only not "fun" but downright transparent.

2. Go Palin!!
If I was a hardcore democrat who only wanted to see the republicans lose then Palin getting the nod would be great in my opinion. She divides her own party enugh already and she just came on the scene. Not to mention once you get past the "clever" soundbites and tough talk she's a house of straw.

4. I was surprised and pleased that Palin stayed in the race this time.
I really don't think there is any hope of her running in 2012. She is the best thing to happen to the Democrats in such a long time but her 15 minutes are over, even if she and many of her supporters think otherwise.
