How Dems see the GOP 2012 Field

The first seven states where we've taken a full look at the 2012 race for President have shown some wide differences in how much Democratic voters like the prospective Republican candidates for President. There's been little difference though in the extent to which Democrats are actually willing to vote for any of the Republicans.

On average 16% of Democrats have a favorable opinion of Huckabee. That puts him a little bit ahead of Mitt Romney at 13% and well ahead of Newt Gingrich at 10% and Sarah Palin at 9%. Huckabee is either the most popular or tied as the most popular Republican across party lines in all seven states we've polled except Minnesota, where he finished just a point behind Romney.

You might look at those numbers and say that Huckabee would be clearly the best candidate for Republicans to get the sort of crossover support they need in 2012. But that's actually not the case. In head to heads with Barack Obama in these seven states Huckabee averages earning 9% of the Democratic vote. Romney gets an equivalent 9%, Palin gets 8%, and Gingrich comes in at 7%.

There are a fair number of Democrats who like Huckabee or Romney but not so much that they're actually willing to vote for them. On the other hand there are few who like Gingrich or Palin, but those two do a better job of actually earning the votes of the few Democrats who do like them.

So Democrats might not hate their President as much as Republicans do or Democrats did during the Bush years if Huckabee was to be elected in 2012- but they wouldn't give him a whole lot of support either.

Here's the full data:

I believe, should Huck get elected, Democrats WOULD like him much as they did when he fell into the Governor's spot in Arkansas. He governed pragmatically, focused on issues important to ALL people and he got things done. He would certainly have no trouble getting a 2nd term.
