Latest CNN Poll Has Rice and Santorum As Top GOP VP Choices Among Republican Voters

This afternoon CNN released the results of a new poll that asked Republican voters whom they think Mitt Romney should choose as his running mate. Former National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice and former GOP candidate Rick Santorum topped the list, with Rice getting 26% of respondents' top choice, while Santorum got 21%. The poll has a +/-4.5% margin of error.

Besides the choices, the sampling of Republican voters were also asked about favorability for each of the names suggested. Rice came in with a whopping 80% favorability rate and Santorum got a 65% favorability rate. In fact, Santorum's favorability rating has been his highest in this poll series. According to the poll, in May 2011, Santorum's favorability was at 26%. However, even though Santorum is at 65% favorable, he also clocked in the highest unfavorable rate, which was 19%. The poll's major findings are posted here.
