December 27: Huckabee News Roundup

The LA Times will be releasing a new Iowa poll later today. In a preview on the LA Times blog, Don Frederick hinted at good news for Huckabee:

New L.A. Times/Bloomberg poll upcoming

Mitt Romney may be left hoping that the results in Iowa have a minimal impact on voters in New Hampshire.

We won't reveal the precise numbers here; those will be available on our homepage later today (roughly 4 p.m. PST).

We can say this much: Among the Republican White House contenders, the poll found that Romney's best-laid plans for the Hawkeye State appear to have gone awry, derailed by Mike Huckabee.
In a new national poll by the Associated Press/Yahoo News, Huckabee takes first place:
Mike Huckabee 22
Rudy Giuliani 21
John McCain 14
Mitt Romney 13
Fred Thompson 11

In November, Giuliani had 27 percent, Thompson 17 percent, McCain 15 percent, Romney 11 percent and Huckabee 9 percent.

About seven in 10 Huckabee supporters are evangelicals, roughly double Giuliani's percentage and triple Romney's.
Huckabee is still on top in the Rasmussen national poll:
With just a week to go until the Iowa caucuses, the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll continues to show five Republican hopefuls in double digits nationally. In the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination, it’s Mike Huckabee at 20%, Rudy Giuliani 18%, John McCain 14%, Mitt Romney 13%, and Fred Thompson at 11%. Ron Paul currently attracts 5% of Likely Republican Primary voters nationwide.

I enjoy reading all the good news related to Huckabee, but he's been getting a lot of negative press as well lately. It would be really cool to see those items posted here along with his responses. Just a suggestion, thanks!

Hey there, my anonymous friend. There is a lot of good news to report, but we have been responding to attacks as well, as warranted. For example:

Huckabee to the Right of All Candidates

And those are just in the last 10 days. =)
