Nov. 30: Huckabee News Roundup

Tonight, the Huckabee campaign met their November online fundraising goal of $2,067,521. This means they raised more money in the month of November than was raised online from the start of the campaign through October 31.

A new ARG Iowa poll shows Huckabee and Romney in a dead heat for 1st place (Huckabee 27% to Romney 28%). But here's the fascinating part:

56% of those saying they support Romney say their support is definite.
89% of those saying they support Huckabee say their support is definite.
And the Baltimore Sun has an interesting article about Huckabee's post-debate surge. Notice how Huckabee's numbers surge after viewers watch him debate, while the undecided numbers drop significantly and the other candidates remain static or lose support:
The narrative following the Republican presidential debate in St. Petersburg, Fla. has been that the greatest beneficiary of the debate was former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Here's one more piece of evidence supporting that storyline.

HCD Research and the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion showed segments of the Wednesday night debate to 637 Republicans, Democrats and Independents. Using their MediaCurves technology, which is essentially the dial-testing of voter perceptions over the Internet, they found that Huckabee experienced the largest, post-debate bounce.

If the Republican primary for the 2008 presidential candidate was held today, and you were asked to vote for a Republican, which candidate would you vote for?

Huckabee will be President. Like Americans will vote the mayor of NEW YORK CITY, or a northeastern blueblood. I just don't see it happening.

If the list of candidates to choose from was a line of port-o-potties outside a concert, Huckabee would be the one overflowing with diarrhea.
If you want a real candidate with real values, then you want Hillary Clinton. Just trust me.
