(Newser) – A frontrunner has yet to emerge among Republican candidates for the 2012 presidential election, according to a new CNN poll. Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, and Mitt Romney are currently tied as the most popular potential candidate, each winning roughly 21% of support among those surveyed. They're trailed by Newt Gingrich with 13% and Jeb Bush at 6%. Romney said last week he wouldn’t “close the door” on a 2012 run.
