Sachs/Mason-Dixon Poll Florida: Mitt Romney Top GOP, Obama loses to Romney and Huckabee

The poll, which was conducted April 4 through April 7 by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, also found Governor Romney leading with 23 percent supportamong a sample size of 400 likely Republican primary voters. In what seems to be developing into a crowded Republican primary field, 13 candidates were included in the poll, including Governor Mike Huckabee, real estate magnate Donald Trump, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Governor Tim Pawlenty and others.
“Governor Mitt Romney is the early favorite – most likely benefiting from his high name recognition following his 2008 Presidential run,” said Mason-Dixon Managing Director Brad Coker. “As more candidates announce and more votersbegin paying attention, expect the race in Florida to become much more competitive.”

We need to post this on Race42008 so Craig4Huck can see it, since he's been claiming Mike will win Florida.

I'm a Romney fan, so I am very happy to see this poll result. What I cannot understand is how Huckabee does as well as he does. He is a hypocrite and he is petty and vindictive. I am surprised that people don't see through him.

If the results reflected who I think are the best and most legitimate, most serious candidates, the top three would be Romney, Pawlenty, and Daniels.
