Huckabee Proves Values Voter Support

One of the key stories that should come out of the FRC Straw Poll is that this is the second major values voter straw poll where he has crushed the competition.

At the Values Voter Debate in Florida in September, Huckabee took 64 percent of the vote — and 30 percent of that support was won over the course of the debate.

Still, in off-hand discussion I had last month with certain conservative DC activists, I got the impression that people viewed Huckabee's win at the debate as a fluke — that it had obviously been stacked for Huckabee.

Of course, this not true at all, but it almost seemed true — because his win was so dominating. Now with another dominating straw poll win, one where all of the candidates were present and where the leaders coordinating it have been critical of Mike, there can be no denying the validity of the earlier win as well.

Huckabee is the candidate for values voters. I hope the leaders listen.
