While former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee
has offered mixed messages as to whether he’ll run for the Republican presidential nomination next year, he’s fared quite well in many recent surveys. Indeed, he topped a recent poll of 152 Republican voters in York County, South Carolina, which holds one of the earliest primaries, Politico reports
Huckabee was the first choice of 23 percent of the voters, party officials told Politico. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich took second, with 11 percent, while Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann placed third, with 10 percent. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney garnered 8 percent first place votes, while real estate mogul Donald Trump and ex-Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty tied at 7 percent.
Haley Barbour, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, John Bolton, Herman Cain, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul and Mitch Daniels all drew under 5 percent.
