GOP 2012…..Huckabee pulls ahead……….and works the money train…..

It seems that in the early race for the GOP nod for the 2012 Presidential run, former Arkansas Republican Governor,  Mike Huckabee has pulled ahead………A new Rasmussen Poll…has him leading Romney ( who\’s PAC has $2 million vs Hucks $430,000, or so ) by  44% to 39% …….now I know it’s three years out…but the race has already begun and will be the exclusive primary story since Obama will be the democratic nominee………..

And just in case you didn’t  know this……Huckabee favors the conservative republican, Marco Rubio in Florida, over the moderate republican Governor Charlie Crist in that states run for the senate…..Says Huckabee of Rubio…..“It stunned me when the [National Republican Senatorial Committee] came out and made an endorsement for Charlie Crist in that race. That was absurd,” Huckabee said. “Guys like Marco are the future of the party. What I see in him is what I want to see in all of our candidates.”.

The thought that Crist has clear sailing down there is increasing becoming clouded…….

Interestingly, right now Palin leads forever choice Newt Gingrich in that poll…….

Stay tuned for more……….

  1. Huckabee maybe the GOP darling for NOW, but by 2012 former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R)’s courting of the hardcore segregationist evangelical base could pay off and get the nomination….. Only to get smoked by President Obama in the general election.

  3. Huckabee has a WEEKEND SHOW on Fox and is seen daily on their other shows. Palin is in the news every day. When she farts, it’s front page news. ROMNEY is under the radar. YET his numbers are as high as theirs. What will they be when he starts making more appearances. he also has his book coming out in 2010! It’s noy a memoir!

    • Hey DC…FOX is the highest rated cable news show…and that’s Huckabee’s target audience…so he’s gonna be ahead…in addition, he plays to the conservatives, who will never trust a candidate from north of the Mason-Dixon line…..
