This headline just might:
Mike Huckabee, Iowa Frontrunner
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee leads the 2012 field in a survey of Iowa caucus-goers conducted for the Iowa Republican website by GOP pollster Jan van Lohuizen.
Huckabee takes 22 percent to 18 percent for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. In a slight surprise, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) received 14 percent to take third while former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin placed fourth with 11 percent.
Chris Cillizza interprets this new poll as basically a name-recognition poll. Huckabee and Gov. Romney finished first and second there last time, and nothing much has changed.
Sarah Palin at fourth? There’s not one resident of Iowa over the age of five who doesn’t know her name.
