NYT/CBS Poll: GOP Voters Unfamiliar With Candidates

By Dan Weil   |  

Potential Republican presidential candidates apparently have an identity crisis. Up to 90 percent of Republican voters participating in a NewYork Times/CBS News poll don’t know enough about some of the candidates to offer a positive or a negative opinion, Politico reports.

Nearly 80 percent of respondents are in that position about former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, with the number rising to 85 percent for Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, and 90 percent for former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman.

In addition, 57 percent of Republican voters can’t name a single possible challenger to Obama who excites them. Asked which potential candidate infuses them with the most enthusiasm, 9 percent selected former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and 8 percent former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
