The 2012 presidential election is nearly 1,500 days away, just soon enough for eager Republicans to begin plotting a run against Barack Obama. So, who do Republicans want to carry the party's mantle? NBC-WSJ GOP pollster Neil Newhouse conducted a survey last night to find out. The majority of Republicans, 33 percent, favor Mitt Romney as the new head of the party, while 20 percent prefer Mike Huckabee. Another 18 precent are behind nominee Sarah Palin, meaning that the barracuda will have some work to do.
