Pawlenty's still a mystery to most voters in new poll

A A

Does this mean Tim Pawlenty will be out of the state even more, trying to boost his national profile? Public Policy Polling, out of Raleigh, N.C., is reporting in a November survey that 64 percent of respondents said they had no opinion of T-Paw one way or the other. He also trails Obama 48-35 percent in a hypothetical presidential contest. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee comes the closest of any Republican to Obama, trailing by one percentage point, 46-45. Next comes former Massachussetts Gov. Mitt Romney at 47-42 percent, followed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, at 50-44 percent.

The survey of 1,253 registered voters took place Dec. 4-7. You can download the full results by clicking here.
