Barbour and Hutchison are Republican VP Contenders

In an unscientific Web poll asking Campaigns & Elections readers who they thought would be the Republican vice presidential pick, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour came out on top with 53 percent. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, was the runner-up with 40 percent of the votes. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee received 5 percent, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice received 2 percent and retired general Tommy Franks got no votes.

Of course, the eventual pick depends on how the caucuses and primaries play out.
