Huckabee leads in Iowa.

Via Public Policy Polling.

Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas, has one thing going for him if he does decide to run for the GOP Nomination again next year: Iowa will back him just as strongly as they did in 2008. This comes one week after a poll out of New Hampshire showed Mitt Romney leading the GOP field with relative ease.

Huckabee leads the way with 30%*, while Romney (18%), Palin (15%), and Gingrich (13%) round out the front runners. Ron Paul leads the second-tier candidates with 6%; while Pawlenty (4%), Thune (3%) and Daniels (1%) are struggling to find name recognition and active support in the first Caucus.

With Iowa trending to Huckabee, and New Hampshire to Romney - the voters of South Carolina, not just Republicans since SC primary elections are open to all registered voters, could very well choose the next Republican Nominee for President, and perhaps the next President of the United States in late January, 2012.

Any thoughts?

* - Huckabee won Iowa with 34% in 2008; Romney placed second with 25%.
