But the survey of conservative voters makes it clear there’s no clear-cut consensus.
Mitt Romney says he’s nowhere close to picking a running mate, but that’s not going to stop political reporters and pollsters from speculating on who he should tap as his no. 2.
A new survey from CNN/ORC International offers no clear consensus on who Republican and conservative-leaning voters want to see fill out the ticket, but among the names at the top of the list are former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and Rick Santorum.
Rice, who played a high-profile role in the George W. Bush administration as secretary and national security adviser, led the way with 26 percent, followed by Santorum with 21 percent. Rice has repeatedly shut down speculation about her interest in the job. Santorum, meanwhile, has suggested he’d consider the position if offered but has yet to even endorse his former GOP rival.
