Yeah, yeah, I know it sucks, but this is politics and the speculation is bound to beginning immediately.
In any event, NBC and the Wall Street Journal did a poll and guess who topped their list?
That’s right: Mitt Romney.
I wrote yesterday about how he was already starting his bid during the campaign itself and it actually got picked up by Real Clear Politics.
NBC-WSJ GOP pollster Neil Newhouse did a post-election survey last night, and here’s what he found: Just 12% of those surveyed believed Palin should be the GOP’s new leader; instead 29% of voters said Romney, followed by 20% who say Huckabee.
Among GOPers, it was Romney 33%, Huckabee 20% and Palin 18%.
I don’t think she’ll try it. Especially after the Georgetown cocktail crowd getd done destroying her folksy reputation.
No, best to hang back in Alaska for another 8 years and be the challenger in 2016.
