The FIX: Friday's Line GOP Nomination

There are three tiers in the 2012 presidential field at the moment: former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is the first tier, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann comprises the second tier and everyone else running is clumped together in the third tier.

Romney, while not a lock to be the nominee, has put distance between himself and the rest of the field over the past six weeks or so with a solid debate performance in New Hampshire, a clear lead in the chase for campaign cash and, most importantly, a rigid message discipline that has kept him focused exclusively on President Obama’s handling of the economy.

 GOP Nomination: (Previous Ranking)

1. Mitt Romney (1)
2. Michele Bachmann (3)
3. Rick Perry (5)
4. John Huntsman (4)
5. Tim Pawlenty (2)
6. Sarah Palin (6)
7. Herman Cain (7)
8. Rick Santorum (8)
9. Ron Paul (10)
10. Newt Gingrich (9)

That looks about right except for Huntsman.

How long will the try to make him appear as a strong candidate? National polls show he's going nowhere.

I can't understand either why these pundits hold Huntsman in such high esteem.

I honestly don't get the idea that Huntsman is strong. Unless it has more to do with him being declared and Perry and Palin are not.
