Head-to-Head: Huckabee 44%, Romney 39%

If the choice for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 comes down to a choice between Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, Huckabee has a slight edge.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Republican voters finds that 44% prefer Huckabee, 39% favor Romney, and 17% are not sure.

Data released yesterday showed that Huckabee and Romney lead all hopefuls in an early look at the 2012 race. Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich also attract double-digit support.

Both Huckabee and Romney are viewed favorably by 78% of Republican voters. However, intensity leans a bit in Huckabee’s favor. Forty-six percent (46%) have a Very Favorable opinion of the former Arkansas governor and current Fox News host. Just 34% have such positive feelings about Romney.

    And why would that be? All the lies by the so called once preacher….?????He did his share of spewing hateful lies and distortions about Mitt. Even put it in his book….I do not think I could vote for the likes of Huckabee…Romney the smarter and more experienced in private sector turnaround ventures to say the least…

    I find more interesting the recent poll showing that Ron Paul would almost beat Obama in 2012.
