A Matter Of Opinion

Obama vs. ??? in 2012

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

Ron Paul -- 8. 8

Newt Gingrich -- 7, 11

Tim Pawlenty -- 2, 3

Mitch Daniels -- 2,2

Rick Santorum -- 2,2

Haley Barbour -- 2, 2

Chris Christie -- 1, 2


Who do you think it will be? Not who do you want it to be (though you can note that, too). I ask, because I have no clue.
