Daniels, Huckabee jump on Intrade

Until last week, there was a good probability that neither Mitch Daniels nor Mike Huckabee would run for president.

But with Haley Barbour dropping out, the buzz has seemed to pick up that both are leaning toward a run.

The betting market, Intrade, has reacted accordingly with the two jumping dramatically.

Chance of being GOP nominee:

1. Mitt Romney 24.6%

2. Tim Pawlenty 15%

3. Mitch Daniels 11. 5%

4. Mike Huckabee 8.5%

5. Jon Huntsman 7.2%

6. Michele Bachmann 6.2%

7. Sarah Palin 5.1%

8. Newt Gingrich 3%
