Support is lower for former House speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas congressman Ron Paul, current Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Michael Steele and former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson.Among supporters of the Republican Party, Huckabee is first with 54 per cent, followed by Palin with 53 per cent, Rice with 45 per cent, and Romney with 44 per cent.In American elections, candidates require 270 votes in the Electoral College to win the White House. In November 2008, Democratic nominee Barack Obama secured a majority of electoral votes, defeating Republican candidate John McCain. On Jan. 20, Obama became the first African American president in U.S. history.On Jul. 13, Huckabee expressed disagreement with a proposed overhaul of the U.S. health care system, saying, "The emphasis is currently on health care. The real focus needs to be on health. The real challenge in America is that about 80 per cent of our total costs are going toward chronic disease. All the discussion in Washington is giving people access to the system. That’s not what fundamentally the problem is. We need a system based on prevention instead of intervention."Polling DataSeveral politicians have been mentioned as possible presidential candidates for the Republican Party in 2012.
