Huckabee Leads In Michigan

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Giuliani, Huckabee, Polls, Republicans, Romney

Folks, this isn’t just an Iowa phenomenon. A number of national polls show Huckabee on top and this latest Rasmussen poll from Michigan shows him in a dead heat with Giuliani and Romney:

Mike Huckabee’s surging campaign has created a three-way toss-up in Michigan’s Republican Primary. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds Huckabee earning 21% of the vote. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the son of a former Michigan Governor, attracts 20% support while former New York City Mayor is the top choice for 19% of Likely Republican Primary Voters.

And how about other primaries?

Currently, Huckabee has a slight edge over Romney in Iowa while Romney has the advantage in New Hampshire. Huckabee leads in South Carolina. Rasmussen Reports, the first firm to show Huckabee leading in Iowa, will be polling again in that state next week.

One last thing that these polls note which I think is significant. Romney made his JFK speech this week, and I know why, but I don’t I think it’s going to help him. See, not only is Huckabee destroying him when it comes to evangelicals, but Giuliani is too.

Yes, Giuliani, the guy who cheated on his second wife and is for abortion rights and civil unions. Evangelicals choose him 16% of the time in Michigan, while Romney only garners 6% of their support.

Seems like it may not be his faith. Seems like it may just be his personality. There’s something about Romney that evangelicals just don’t seem to trust.

    Romney is a magnificent candidate. Giuliani is a weasel. Huckabee is a liberal except on social issues. He has no foreign policy experience, and no education, or background in business to prove he can solve problems.

  2. Bob Aman Says:

    Oh please. Romney’s speech wasn’t even heard by the evangelicals. Run a poll, trust me, you’ll see. At this moment, the only thing they know about the man is that he’s a member of a “cult”. They’re not likely to hear or trust anything else.

    Funny thing is, I did hear the speech, I thought it was excellent. I still won’t vote for him. Religion is part of it, but, contrary to what the other Bob said, he really isn’t a magnificent candidate. The republicans are fielding only one candidate worth voting for this year, and that’s Ron Paul. I have no intention of voting for Ron Paul, unless he’s facing Hillary, but he’s a whole lot better than anything else in the GOP.

  3. Tony Says:

    Bob, are you trying to say that Huckabee has no foreign policy experience but Romney does? As far as I’m concerned, the only one who can justify any knowledge about foreign policy in either party is Joe Biden.

    But I’m not disagreeing you about Huckabee… I’m just saying that Romney’s lacking just as much in some areas.

  4. David Says:

    The 3 top republicans all have a huge part of Bush in them, except on steroids. Huckabee is even more of a religious nut (and unlike Bush, I think he actually believes some of it), Rudy has Bush’s secrecy and dictator part covereed in overdrive and Romney makes Bush loook honest! What a group! God help us if one of these unAmerican whores is our next president!

  5. Grant Gould Says:

    I read Romney’s speech as saying, “if you are an atheist, you are unwelcome in my corner (or indeed in a free country).” As an atheist, I’m happy to take up the invitation to never again so much as consider voting for Romney.

    I can’t believe what I am hearing from Huckabee supporters. Cute Christmas cards are supposed to prevent the coming recession?

    Huckabee and Guiliani have nothing for the economy compared with Romney’s business and economic acumen. Will you still be complaining about Romney’s faith when they lay you off and foreclose your home? Get real, and don’t get me started about Huckabee as a foreign policy disaster. Huckabee and Ahmadinejad sitting across at a table???? That’s classic, what a nightmare.

    Take all of the t-shirts mocking Bush you see at the mall and insert Huckabee’s face. That’s what college kids may be wearing until 2012. Bush haters are going to FEAST on Huckabee, what a goober…there’s a good image for the Republican stigma. Are you kidding me??

    Why don’t we all vote for an inferior candidate merely because he’s not LDS. Evangelicals are going to ruin this nation.
