National Journal: GOP Insiders Say Mitt Romney’s Still Number One

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney continues to be seen as the favorite for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination according to a special National Journal Political Insiders Poll released on Tuesday. The second favorite for the GOP nod is former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. But Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor who was John McCain’s running mate in 2008 and was once viewed as a potential party standard bearer, was ranked ninth by the GOP Insiders—tied with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Texas Gov. Rick Perry—when they were asked who was most likely going to be their 2012 presidential nominee.

I would say that with this poll, experience (in politics) brings knowledge.

The insiders seem to have it right. I only question Barbour.

I can understand Palin/Huckabee's low numbers. My guess is they will increase IF and WHEN they CLEARLY indicate they are running.

Yea! Looking good for Romney! This country needs a reasonable, in touch with reality president, and Romney is the man who can meet those needs.
