Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has lots to do if he is to become part of the GOP presidential front-running pact, a new Rasmussen Reports poll shows.
The survey of likely Republican voters across the country showed that just 1 percent picked Pawlenty as their favorite presidential candidate.
Last year's popular candidate Mitt Romney pulled in 25 percent support, followed closely by Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin with 24 percent. A couple of points back was former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich received support from 14 percent of the Republicans surveyed.
Even more telling, 28 percent of Republicans said they did not know enough about Pawlenty to say if they have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of him. Most of those surveyed knew what they thought of Romney, Palin, Huckabee and Gingrich. Palin received the most favorable marks.
