Huckabee is early favorite of 'values voters'

The 2012 presidential election is a long way off, but former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is the favorite so far among those attending the Values Voter Summit last weekend in Washington, D.C. Huckabee received 28 percent of the vote in the summit's straw poll. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty each received about 12 percent of the vote, and Indiana Rep. Mike Pence received 11 percent.
