Here are the Facebook numbers for the declared Republican presidential candidates as of the first day of autumn, 2011. The report will be updated periodically, but you can always find each candidate's current total by clicking on their name, which will take you to their respective Facebook pages.

Mitt Romney – 1,116,474 likes

Ron Paul – 516,600 likes

Michelle Bachmann – 462,108 likes

Herman Cain – 178,587 likes

Rick Perry – 163,199 likes

Newt Gingrich – 148, 194 likes

Jon Huntsman – 18,141 likes

Thaddeus McCotter – 15,032 likes

And what about the man the winner of the 2012 GOP nomination will face?

Not that it matters when it comes time for voting (or will it?), but Obama has roughly eight times the "likes" of the entire GOP field combined!
