of USA Today
cites a recent poll that puts former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee
at the top of a list of prospective GOP presidential candidates (with 40 percent saying they would "seriously consider supporting"), just edging out Mitt Romney
(39 percent). Sarah Palin
came in third at 33 percent. Of course, it's a little early for this to really mean anything. Page says, "None of the GOP prospects has announced he or she will join the race, but all are making the sort of appearances and speeches that would keep the option open."
