One Iowan for Jon Huntsman


Public Policy Polling will release a poll of Iowa Republicans that will be sorta interesting. One Twitter tease said, “Herman Cain tied for 2nd in Iowa numbers we’ll release tomorrow.” Another read, “Gingrich fav[orability] with Iowa Republicans is 39/41. That makes 4 of 5 polls we’ve done in last week where he’s upside down with GOP.” But this is the one that made gasp.

We polled 481 Republicans in Iowa. 1 picked Jon Huntsman. Not 1%. 1 respondent.

Dang, Iowa.

If Hawkeye State Republicans are serious about wanting a Republican in the White House, they might want to give Huntsman a look-see. Or maybe they like things the way they are?
