The race for the 2012 presidential election is already under way. A CNN/Opinion Research survey about the election included questions asking Republicans whom they would support in the campaign.
The survey found that 10 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said they would support Donald Trump. The highest percentage of support is for former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential primary nominee Mike Huckabee at 19 percent, followed closely by Mitt Romney at 18 percent. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich got 14 percent support and former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin received 12 percent.
Trump announced he will headline a GOP dinner in June in Iowa but has not yet said if he will run for president.
According to the Federal Election Commission, 96 people have filed a statement of candidacy to register as a presidential candidate.
The survey found that about three-quarters of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents favor President Barack Obama being nominated again next year.
