Missouri Likely To Favor Any Republican Candidate Except Palin in 2012


A Public Policy Poll released yesterday indicates that all but one of a handful of Republican presidential candidates would win Missouri in 2012. That exception is Sarah Palin.

The poll found that former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee would be the strongest candidate for Missouri's 11 electoral votes, leading Obama 49-42. Mitt Romney comes in second, 47-41, with Newt Gingrich narrowly defeating Obama, 45-44.

The poll indicated that Obama would beat Sarah Palin, 46-43.
