Huckabee Surges Past Romney in Iowa

Former Baptist preacher and Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has taken the lead from Mitt Romney in the latest Iowa poll.  Romney has been leading in Iowa for months after pouring millions upon millions of dollars into the state, but Huckabee still was able to rank higher.  Here are Rasmussen's results.

 

Mike Huckabee:  28%

Mitt Romney:  26%

Rudy Giuliani:  12%

Fred Thompson:  11%

Ron Paul:  5%

John McCain:  4%

 

Huckabee has risen to the lead by shamelessly playing the religion card.  He calls himself the Christian leader, which is a purposeful attack against Mitt Romney, who is Mormon.  The preacher believes that the evangelical voters in Iowa will vote for him over Romney solely over religion.  He seems to be correct, at least in the short-term.  However, there are only so many Jesus-freaks out there.

 

The other key elements of this Rasmussen poll are the rise of Congressman Ron Paul and the fall of John McCain.  Senator McCain has fallen to sixth place in Iowa, while Dr. Paul has passed him to move up to fifth place.  Ron Paul has done this despite spending very little money in the state.  If Paul is able to come in third in Iowa, he will be the major story coming out of the state as the elections shift to New Hampshire.
