Huckabee: ‘Take Your Best Shot’

The candidate who has gone from microscopic numbers to front-runner status is starting to feel the heat, but Mike Huckabee would rather suffer the slings and arrows of his opponents’ attacks than go back to toiling away in conservative obscurity: “It’s almost like ‘take your best shot, people.’ ” Now if the marginalized Democratic candidates could replicate Huckabee’s success, we’d have an exciting race on our hands.

Oh My God, What a Ticket!

Huckabee v. Huffington

The gloves are off in a throwdown between Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Huffington Post creator Arianna Huffington over a low point in Huckabee’s career as governor of Arkansas.  The controversy concerns the Huffington Post’s coverage of the part Huckabee played in the release of serial rapist Wayne Dumond, whose time in prison clearly didn’t rehabilitate him.

Romney Woos Wary Voters With Faith-Based Appeal

Now that rival Republican presidential hopeful (and Baptist minister) Mike Huckabee is getting traction in Iowa polls, Mitt Romney has attempted to pull a JFK by giving a speech Thursday targeting voters concerned about his Mormonism. Romney pledged that church authorities wouldn’t influence his presidential decisions, while also declaring that he endeavors to “live by” his faith and be “true to” his beliefs.

Poll: Clinton and Giuliani Are Slipping

A new USA Today/Gallup poll fits a trend other surveys have been pointing toward, namely that the front-runners in both parties are slowly losing their headlock on the election. Hillary Clinton, though still in the lead nationally, has lost 11 points in a month while Barack Obama and John Edwards have both picked up a few. Meanwhile, Mike Huckabee, once firmly stuck in statistically insignificant territory, continues his climb, like that other famous Arkansan who surprised his way to his party’s nomination.

Dead Heat in Iowa

Hillary Clinton’s lead in Iowa is statistically nonexistent, leaving in a virtual tie the top three Democrats running in the nation’s first electoral test, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll. On the Republican side, Mike Huckabee has sprinted past Rudy Giuliani to be within striking distance of Mitt Romney.

Romney Wins Iowa Straw Poll

Mitt Romney won the Republican straw poll in Iowa on Saturday by a wide margin, but his victory was tempered by the conspicuous absence of the other big names in the campaign: John McCain, Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson. Mike Huckabee, meanwhile, turned heads with a surprising second-place finish. Tommy Thompson said previously he would drop out of the race if he didn’t get second or better. He placed sixth.

At Bottom of the Polls, GOP Candidates Duke It Out

An odd thing happened Sunday: Mike Huckabee took a shot at Mitt Romney’s credibility. With only four percentage points of support for the two of them, according to the most recent Gallup poll, you’d think the former Arkansas governor would have bigger fish to fry. He may.

Do You Heart Huckabee?

Former Arkansas governor and presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, a Baptist evangelical who is keeping loyal distance from Bush on the war, may just pull off the hat trick of blending religious conservatism with policy pragmatism.
