The Evangelical Outpost Blog makes the following salient rebuttal to the Romney-ian/Elite GOP Talk Radio Spin on who's the spoiler in the GOP race for president:
In the latest USA Today/Gallup poll Huckabee supporters were asked for whom they would vote if the race came down to John McCain or Mitt Romney.
The results showed that McCain wins over Romney as the second choice of Huckabee voters by more than a 2 to 1 margin, 64% to 28%. McCain beats Romney 42% to 24% with Huckabee in the race (Huckabee gets 18% of the vote) and expands that margin to 53% to 30% with Huckabee voters forced to choose between the two candidates.
"A more likely scenario is that Romney's continued presence in the race siphoned off votes and support for Huckabee."
Had sleepy Fred Thompson not slouched and moped around South Carolina and the Gucci Chameleon, "Slick Willard" Mitt Romney not wasted millions on what's become an Apollo 1 meltdown of a campaign, Mike Huckabee would likely be the front runner.
