The field of possible 2012 Republican presidential candidates is wide.

Here is how the field stands among these Republican voters:
Rudy Giuliani 23%
Mitt Romney 20%
Sarah Palin 12%
Mike Huckabee 10%
Donald Trump 7%

Newt Gingrich 3%
Tim Pawlenty 2%

So basically this Poll said Romney was the big winner.

If Giuliani was not included, Romney's numbers would have looked like NH.

Unfortunately Giuliani was included and Romney lost. He has been contemplating a run, but even if he doesn't, there is no reason to speculate that Romney would acquire most of his support. Giuliani, although a social moderate, has some base support due to his staunch views on foreign policy and national defense. Huckabee or Palin could very easily end up with more than half of his support between them and the numbers for all three would be close.

I agree Larry.

If Giuliani had not been polled, The distance between Romney and the others would have been greater.
