Paul-Huntsman in 2012

Now that the Iowa and New Hampshire Republican primaries are over with Mitt Romney the clear front-runner for the Republican party, voters might begin to consider the potential for an independent ticket that includes Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman. From where I sit, a Paul-Huntsman ticket could be viable.

Hon Ronald Ernest "Ron" Paul (1935- )
Hon Jon Meade Huntsman, Jr (1960- )

Thus far, Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman have both run respectable campaigns to become the Republican presidential nominee. Nevertheless, Ron Paul is an unabashed Libertarian, and Jon Huntsman has been described as a "no-label" Libertarian. Is Libertarianism gaining appeal in America, and could a Paul-Huntsman ticket win the US presidency?
