Poll Shows

Poll Shows, Republican voters have not formed strong opinions about most of the possible candidates for the party presidency, according to the latest poll by The New York Times / CBS News. And nearly 60 percent of Republicans cannot point to one candidate over those who are excited in a nascent campaign and the Republican Party presidential slow departure.

As the Times, only those who have been making regular appearances on television or have suffered in the past are well known enough to draw strong views.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is best known in the survey, 51 percent of Republican voters said they had a favorable opinion of Palin, while 26 percent of its unfavorable view. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), who ran for the Republican nomination in 2008, had the highest favorable rating among Republicans surveyed. 54 percent of GOPers said they had a favorable view of Huckabee, while 11 percent had an unfavorable view of the former governor of Arkansas.

35 percent had a favorable opinion of Donald Trump, who has been the bombardment of the media in recent times, while 32 percent had an unfavorable opinion and 33 percent were undecided. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was viewed favorably by 42 percent and 20 percent unfavorable.

It’s all-downhill from there. Fully 43 percent have no opinion of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R), who announced his presidential exploratory committee last week. Only 42 percent had a favorable opinion of him while 15 percent had an unfavorable opinion, however, most observers believe he is the favorite.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R), which also recently announced his presidential exploratory committee, did not elicit strong opinions in the survey: 77 percent did not know enough about him or were undecided, while 20 percent had a favorable opinion and 3 percent had an unfavorable opinion.

93 percent of respondents have no opinion of U.S. Ambassador in China, Jon Huntsman. That number was 88 percent for Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R), 85 percent for Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R), 76 percent for former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) and 75 percent for Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).

More than half of Republican voters surveyed also identified themselves as supporters of the Tea Party, the Times.
