I pose this question to the distinguished posters here … and to the rest of you. Who will Obama face in the next election?
Recent Pew Poll has likely foes ranked thusly (first number is all voters: second number is Republican respondents):
Mitt Romney — 16, 21
Mike Huckabee — 14, 20
Sarah Palin — 11, 13

Newt Gingrich — 7, 11
Tim Pawlenty — 2, 3
Mitch Daniels — 2,2
Rick Santorum — 2,2
Haley Barbour — 2, 2
Chris Christie — 1, 2
