Very interesting. I think that leaves Huckabee in a pretty good position -- at least for now -- based on your numbers. He is down seven points from Romney with this group (but still pretty good at +28) and with the rank and file he is pretty much up there with Palin -- or not far behind.

Jed M. Merrill

Romney is a Conservative who used to be an Independent, and can therefore speak to Independents while representing Conservatives both ideologically and in values.Romney IS our strongest candidate for 2012. Huckabee has matured, and Palin is doing well now that her book has launched, but it is Romney who actually has what it takes to turn things around, and will pull votes even from among Democrats.There are a lot of people still fighting Romney over his religion, or perhaps their misunderstanding of it. There is no good reason for this. To these people I would like to point out that Jesus was once approached by one of his disciples who had found a man preaching in Jesus name who they did not know. Did Jesus say to rebuke or fight against him? No. He said to let him be.Also, Mormons claim to have MORE of the words of Christ, beyond just the Bible, which they certainly embrace. Does that make them LESS Christian?Romney is NOT running to preach. (For that matter he has not even announced that he is running!) Romney is running to govern and to serve. Romney has been clear that he will govern as a conservative. In Massachusetts, the people demanded more liberal government, and even in that capacity he WOULD NOT sign pro-abortion legislation or support homosexual marriage.If you are concerned about freedoms of religion, conservative Christians have no better ally than Mormons, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience and allow ALL men the right to worship how, when or what they may.http://scriptures.lds.org/en/a_of_f/1

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
