Mike Huckabee leads the field of likely and potential GOP contenders for President Obama’s jobs, according to a poll conducted March 18-22 by Gallup.

Despite a spate of bad recent publicity about her viability as a candidate and the growing unhappiness with her among conservative leaders, Sarah Palin runs fairly strong at 12 percent, followed by Newt Gingrich at 10 percent. Ron Paul’s enthusiastic but narrow base puts him at 6 percent, and hot new item Michele Bachmann – who just formed and exploratory committee – is at five percent.
