Iowa: Huckabee 39%, Romney 23%, Rudy 8%, Fred 8%, McCain 6%
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 11:17 AM by Dems Will Win
Iowa Hearts Huckabee.

It was just two weeks ago that Rasmussen Reports released the first Iowa Caucus poll showing Mike Huckabee with an advantage over Mitt Romney. A lot has changed over the past two weeks and Huckabees lead has now grown to double digits.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the Iowa caucus finds Huckabee with 39% of the vote, Romney with 23% support, and everyone else in single digits. Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson get just 8% of the vote in Iowa at this time. Arizona Senator John McCain is at 6% just one point ahead of Congressman Ron Paul (see crosstabs).

Huckabees support in Iowa is up eleven points from the poll conducted in late November. Over the past month, Huckabee has more than doubled his support from 16% on November 12 to 39% today. Romney has lost two points from the previous survey and is down six points over the past month.

Huckabee also leads in South Carolina, is tied for the lead in Michigan, and is near the top with Rudy Giuliani in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll. Results for the latest polling in New Hampshire will be released later this week.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Evangelical Christians now support Hucakbee in Iowa. Thats up from 48% in the previous poll. Huckabee also leads Romney among other Protestant voters by a 33% to 25% margin.

Huckabee leads by fourteen points among men and by eighteen points among women.

Looks like we will be facing Huckabee if he wins NH. Rudy doesn't even have much $$ to stop him.

This also could end up being a BROKERED CONVENTION.

2. I heard a right winger on the radio this morning explaining Huckabee's lead
A right winger on the radio this am said the only reason Huckabee is leading is because the media wants him to have the lead.

I had to agree with this otherwise totally misinformed individual.

4. Yes.
I think he is right. But given his lack of information, you know he did not come up with that phrase on his own.

I wonder who planted that idea in his head?

Anyway, the media may want The Huckster there, but I doubt that the rest of his party will allow him to be the nominee. I think they want Mittens.

3. It's the Chuck Norris Commercials
Kids are forwarding them each other on YouTube and showing them to their parents. Brilliant viral marketing.

5. Lots of pro-rapist, pro-corruption, Jesus-rode-a-dinosaur voters out there
A rasmussen florida poll as similar results.

7. EXCELLENT
There is no possible way Huckabee could win a presidential election so this is amazing news.

10. Don't get too 'amazed'
There is no possible way George W. Bush actually won two presidential elections ... but he's now been in office for almost seven years.

There is nothing that the 'Christian' radical Republicans won't do to keep presidential power -- so we must all be vigilant from now until November 2008, even if Huck is their nominee.

8. How many here on DU will believe he's not the "Establishment" choice
if he wins the nom? If the GOPers think they smell another weak-minded, intellectually-challenged "regular-guy" salesman to be the front-man neocon puppet to snow the masses, they'll latch onto him. Watch, if the GOPer powers-that-be realize they can't kill this wacko, fiscal-liberal baby in the cradle, then they'll suddenly surround him with advisors and professionals and make him into their horse. Ed Rollins signed on today to lead the Huck campaign--THAT should tell you something. They're going to polish the turd, just like GWB. And for all those DUer's who think Huckabee is somehow populist and anti-corporate, you're in for a rude surprise if by some disaster he gets into the WH.

11. The establishment is aghast at Huckabee, they don't want him
Huckabee is so broke, he only has $650,000.

He said obviously God is on his side, that's why he's rising in the polls.

The Fundies LOVED that.

13. He'll only win the nom with the Establishment's control and blessing--
Huckabee is malleable and a friendly face, with no real political convictions or underpinnings, no intellectual depth, beyond fundie beliefs. If they think they can get him under control and sell the neocon agenda, they'll make him the nom. The Republican Establishment always wins--otherwise we'd be living through the eighth year of a McCain Presidency.

14. Thank you for your concern.
Your statement is fallacious. Examine it.

19. There's nothing untrue in what I've said. It's my opinion, and you may not agree--
but I do believe that the Repub establishment will back Huckabee if they smell a winner, and they'll convert him into a neocon corporate puppet front-man, just like they did for Bush. Bush and Huckabee are the same person--one had a pedigree, education and "beer-with", the other has personality, glibness, and "beer-with".

20. The GOP powers-that-be must be afraid that even after all the
pandering to the neocons and the Falwell types, he might turn out to have a shred of integrity and independence once inside the Oval Office.

17. Remember, Suckabee only became governor of Ark. because of Whitewater
when Jim Guy Tucker got caught up in Scaife & Co.'s slimy web, the hitherto obscure Lt. Gov. acceded to power. So he owes the Clinton-hating crowd big time. And that is major buck$$$. Only so much of it can actually go to his campaign, of course -- but we already know how good these goons are at tearing others down...

23. Go Huckleberry! Edwards Beats Huckabee 60% to 35% One-on-One...LINK
http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/12/10/poll.head.to.hea ... /

On the Democratic side, Edwards performs best against each of the leading Republicans. In addition to beating Huckabee by 25 percent and McCain by 8 percent, the North Carolina Democrat beats Romney by 22 percentage points (59 percent to 37 percent) and Giuliani by 9 percentage points (53 percent to 44 percent).
