    Conservative pundit Ann Coulter says GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is the “Republican Jimmy Carter” and nominating him would be a big mistake for the party.

    Appearing with John Gibson and Heather Nauert on Fox News’ “The Big Story,” Coulter was asked about Huckabee’s recent surge in the polls.

    “I’m getting tired of this being blamed on the evangelicals,” said Coulter.

    Huckabee’s rise is actually “bad for the evangelicals,” she asserted. “Mike Huckabee is the Republican Jimmy Carter.”

    Nominating the ordained Baptist minister “would be a big mistake,” Coulter opined. “He has many good qualities. Unfortunately, the things that are upsetting to the mainstream media about Huckabee are what normal Americans like.”

    She cited as examples Huckabee’s “religiosity and his questioning of Darwinian evolution.”

    But she criticized the former Arkansas governor for opposing a bill that would have required Arkansas residents to prove they are Americans before they could vote or get social services.

    Coulter — whose latest book is “If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans” — was also asked about Hillary Clinton’s recent decline in the polls.

    “Hillary really is in trouble, which would be fantastic,” she replied. “But I won’t believe it until we see the dead body.”

    When Gibson asked if she meant that literally, Coulter declined to answer. But she did go on to declare, regarding the Clintons: “I would love to see this national pestilence finished off once and for all. The primary would be great. If not, I’ll take the general election.”

    Can't agree with Ann, Huckabee is no Jimmy Carter. Carter was brilliant but too straightforward for the American psyche, we like movie stars better and good stories more. Carter religion was important, it was the first time its power was recognized, but Carter's was a quiet 'do the right thing' religion and not the 'wear it on the sleeve' type of Huck.
