Huckabee fans like the latest Rasmussen track. E-mail:
I’m sure you’ve already been sent the information, but Mike Huckabee hit 10% nationally today in the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking poll. That’s only 2% behind Romney and 4% behind McCain, and only 11% out of the lead. Is he in 5th place? Sure. But the new number shows two things:1) He is consistently rising in the polls, both nationally and in Iowa 2) The Republican race is genuinely up for grabs.
Also, he is on pace to raise more money online in the month of October than he did in the 3Q for all fundraising. If the knock on him has always been money and name recognition, then he seems to be overcoming those handicaps. I mean, he’s spent less than $2 million, compared to Romney’s $52 million, and is only 2% behind him in the national poll, and only 7 % behind him in Iowa, according to Rasmussen.
Hey, even I could write a speech for him on this one!
