WaPo’s lede on its new poll is that Sarah Palin’s favorables are down with the American public. That’s news? We’re talking about a decline from 51-46 unfavorable last October to 53-40 now. The actual bad news for Palinites, if not for Sarah herself, is that Mike Huckabee is now the 2012 front-runner among Republican and GOP-leaning voters at 26 percent, with Mitt Romney next at 21 percent and Palin at 19 percent. Worse, Huckabee leads Palin 2-1 among white evangelicals. I won’t say I told you so, but at the moment 2012 is looking very Huckabee-Romneyish.
