Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin trails former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in a new hypothetical 2012 matchup poll, according to a report by Politico.com.

Meanwhile, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich garnered 16 percent of Alaska Republicans, placing him in fourth behind former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckablee who was tied with Palin.
