AOL Poll - Half Would consider GOP President in 2012


(Nov. 3) -- Half of the American electorate would at least consider voting a Republican into the White House in 2012, while four in 10 say they won't and the rest are undecided, according to an AOL poll conducted as Republicans seized control of the House of Representatives.

The poll also found that 50 percent of independent voters would consider voting for a Republican presidential candidate in the next U.S. election. So would nearly two in 10 -- 18.5 percent -- of registered Democrats.

AOL surveyed 1,065 registered voters on Nov. 1, the day before Americans went to the polls and voted a Republican majority into the House. The GOP also gained a handful of seats in the Senate, but the upper chamber of Congress remains in Democratic control.


Nearly 37 percent of those polled said they plan to vote for a Republican in the 2012 presidential race, and 14.5 percent said they might. Thirty-eight percent said they would not vote for a Republican to oust President Barack Obama in 2012, and nearly 11 percent responded that they have no opinion.

The poll has an overall margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. See the full results here.

Among the 610 respondents who said they either intend to vote Republican in the next presidential election or would at least consider it, 2008 contenders Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney were favorites from a list of eight possible presidential or vice presidential candidates AOL questioned voters about. They had about 48.2 percent and 46.2 percent support, respectively, trailed by Sarah Palin with 45.5 percent.

Former House Speaker and Republican heavyweight Newt Gingrich rounds out the top four with 43.7 percent support, followed farther behind by outgoing Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (21.7 percent), New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (15.5 percent), Donald Trump (14.5 percent) and Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (12.3 percent).

Some 2010 midterm races are still too close to call, but with voting complete, the country's political attention turns now to speculation over who'll be the GOP's nominee in 2012.

Among registered Republicans, Huckabee and Palin are statistically tied for the top spot, each with about 56 percent of their party's support on a 2012 presidential ticket. Gingrich and Romney both have about 50 percent popularity among GOP voters.

The AOL poll also found some gender differences when it comes to politics. Male voters seemed to prefer Huckabee and Palin more than women do. More than 50 percent of the possible Republican voters who said they would be pleased to see Huckabee on the 2012 ticket were men, versus less than 46 percent women. The former Alaska governor's supporters were about 50 percent male and 41 percent female.

On the other hand, the poll reveals that women prefer Romney more than men do. More than 51 percent of the former Massachusetts governor's supporters were women, compared with less than 41 percent male.

The AOL poll focused on eight Republican contenders for 2012, but 29 percent of all respondents said they would prefer someone else not on the list. Among all respondents, 52 percent of the youngest voters polled, in the age 18 to 29 category, said they would prefer someone other than the eight candidates mentioned.
