Mitt Romney: Leading the GOP field

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney tops a new poll of potential GOP challengers for President, followed by Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas.


And Romney is in a statistical dead heat with President Barack Obama.  A McClatchy-Marist poll shows Obama at 46 percent and Romney at 45 percent.  Obama holds a five point lead over Huckabee.

Romney led Huckabee by one percentage point in the poll of 1,274 adults nationwide, Donald Trump by five points and former New York Mayor Rudy Giulani by nine points.

Sarah Palin came in last.

Doug Thompson published his first story and photo at age 11 -- a newspaper article about racism and the Klan in Prince Edward County, VA, in 1958. From that point on, he decided to become a newspaperman and did just that -- reporting news and taking photos full-time at his hometown paper, becoming the youngest full-time reporter at The Roanoke Times in Virginia in 1965 and spent most of the past 55+ years covering news around the country and the globe. After a short sabbatical as a political operative in Washington in the 1980s, he returned to the news profession in 1992. Today, he is a contract reporter/photojournalist for BHMedia and owns Capitol Hill Blue and other news websites.


  1. Don’t hold well for Romney. Romney is the one running all over the country blathering everywhere, while Huck is cooling his heels.

    Projection: Romney will lose the GOP nod

    I once supported Mitt, but see he has no future, and since he changed a chapter in his book when it went to paperback, people will be on to Mitt and know Mitt is a flipper
