We’re still a year and a half from the Iowa Caucus, but the speculation is picking up steam.

From HotAir by way of Conservatives 4 Palin, here’s an Economist/YouGov poll from this past week that I found a little surprising:


A name is missing from the list of possibilities that’s bound to get some folks in a twist. And why not throw Chris Christie in the polling mix just for kicks?

If I’m going to even consider Newt Gingrich, his first challenge is going to be to erase the picture from my memory of him sitting next to Nancy Pelosi and helping her peddle the climate sham. Newt’s going to have to drop the mother of all amnesia bombs for me to forget that.

A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that any Republican would beat Obama in 2012. Once a specific name and face is applied to that “any” candidate, the numbers could change dramatically in either direction.

The Economist writes that at this point in the polling for the 2008 nomination, Barack Obama wasn’t even included on the list of choices, so of course there’s a good chance that the GOP nominee might be someone not currently even under consideration. Who might that be?

At this point, put me down for Palin. In the universe that exists parallel to ours but where anything can happen, put me down for Herman Cain. Come to think of it, a Palin/Cain ticket could single-handedly save JournoList:
