As the obvious Republican contenders for president in 2012 gather at a Washington conference, a new poll finding released today found that three are ahead of the pack.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey, conducted last week, asked Republicans who they would be most likely to support.
The results: 29 percent said Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the GOP vice presidential candidate last year; 26 percent said former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who sought the nomination last year; and 21 percent said former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who also ran last year.
Huckabee spoke Thursday to the Conservative Poliitcal Action Conference, where he called for "family conservatives," "fiscal conservatives," and "freedom conservatives" to unite as "compentent conservatives." Romney is scheduled to speak this afternoon. Palin cancelled her appearance, saying she was too busy as governor.

Obviously it's waaaaay early but interesting nonetheless to see Sarah Palin garnering the most support.
