With Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump out: Another look at the GOP field

In the past few days Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump have both removed their names from consideration for the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination.

A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely GOP Primary Voters taken April 26, 2011 shows that Mitt Romney and Chris Christie are nearly dead even for the GOP nomination if Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump do not run. While Palin has not ruled out a run at this time, few analysts expect her to compete for the nomination.

Without those big names in the race, ex-Massachusetts governor Romney earns 27% support, while Christie, the current governor of New Jersey, picks up 26% of the vote. Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin congressman whose controversial long-term budget plan shook up the spending debate in Washington, runs a distant third with 12%.
