New Poll: Beebe Most Popular Gov in Nation

AROUND ARKANSAS -- Some new polling information could be previewing a match-up between Governor Mike Beebe and Senator John Boozman in a 2016 race for Senate. 

A public policy polling survey finds that Governor Beebe is the highest approved governor in the country, getting overwhelming support among independents, and even among Republicans, a rarity these days.

Arkansans, enthusiastic about the prospect of a native son running for president.

42% of respondents to a public policy poll would like to see former Governor Mike Huckabee make another bid for the White House. 33% of Republicans in the state say Huckabee would be their top choice for president. That's compared to 12% for Ted Cruz, 10% for Jeb Bush, and 7% for Chris Christie.

Huckabee would defeat former Arkansan Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical matchup between the two in the state.  

Clinton fares better against other rivals Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush. Former President Bill Clinton remains popular in the Natural State, with a 50% favorability rating.
