Something likely to be overlooked in Nate Silver’s post today on the favorability/unfavorability ratings of national political figures: Michael Huckabee is the least unpopular of the top four Republican presidential candidates. Huckabee is +16, versus +9 for Romney, -10 for Gingrich, and -14 for Palin. As a benchmark, President Obama stands at +6, George W. Bush at -9, Dick Cheney at -17.
