    Palin leads among Tea Party members with 28% support. Romney’s the favorite among non-members with 32% of the vote.
    Romney, Palin and Huckabee are essentially in a three-way tie among voters who describe themselves as very conservative. Those who characterize themselves as somewhat conservative and moderate/liberal have a clear preference for Romney.
    Romney holds the lead among married and unmarried primary voters, but Palin is slightly ahead among those who have children living with them.
    Palin and Huckabee are neck-and-neck among evangelical Christians. Other Protestants, Catholics and those of other religions like Romney better.
