He's moving up in the polls in Iowa and South Carolina and New Hampshire!!!!! Go Mike !!!!

A new Mason-Dixon poll shows that Governor Mike Huckabee has overtaken "front runner" John McCain in Iowa. Huckabee received 7% support in the poll, his highest poll ranking to date.

This news comes on the heels of two other recent polls indicating sharp increases in voter preference for Huckabee in South Carolina and New Hampshire on the heels of the three televised GOP debates.

Huckabee received wide acclaim for three solid debate performances.

Significantly, Huckabee has achieved his recent advances in key primary state polling despite spending almost ZERO dollars in the states. By comparision, Huckabee's competitors have spent lavishly.

The results indicate conservatives continue to gravitate toward Huckabee's authentic conservative message and credentials.

Mitt Romney, 25 percent

Mike's intelligent discourse on the issues paired with his feverish pace of talk-shows, fundraisers, and one-on-one meetings with voters is starting to pay big dividends!
Mike Huckabee has now broken into the TOP FOUR candidates in Iowa. At 7% polling support, with 21% still undecided, the Iowa straw poll looks to boost Huckabee into the top tier of the national election.
With Rudy, McCain, and Fred Thompson pulling out of Iowa, that puts Huckabee at the #2 spot on the Ames poll 2 months out!

Yeah, I think he's the GOPs best candidate for winning the white house.

Frankly, I think you guys should have a Huckabee/Brownback tickect. The two only real conservatives in the lineup. I don't think that ticket could be beat.

It's just a matter of time now until Mike Huckabee is the front runner. If they allow him to speak at the debates about the issues he's passionate about his numbers will continue to rise. IMHO he's the best Candidate on either side.

HSLDA's PAC Committee has taken the historic step of making an early endorsement in the 2008 race for president.

We believe that Mike Huckabee, Governor of Arkansas, should be elected the next President of the United States. Mike is a principled conservative, a friend of homeschooling, a man of character, and a man with a mature faith in Jesus Christ.

Mike Huckabee, as governor, was the first to appoint a homeschooler to the Arkansas State Board of Education, and to our knowledge the first to do so in any state. He is adamantly opposed to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and is committed to stopping the erosion of parental rights. He is pro-life. He supports traditional marriage. He believes that the Internal Revenue Service should be abolished and replaced with the Fair Tax--a move that we strongly support because it would greatly benefit homeschooling families. He believes and is willing to say that Islamic extremism needs to be understood as a theologically driven threat. He believes that America must be strong, but should never be perceived as a bully. He believes that our borders must be secured not only from illegal immigration but from the growing trend among American judges of "illegally importing" international law into our American judicial systems.

There are a few other candidates in the race who are properly described as principled conservatives. None of the media's "frontrunners" would qualify for this designation. But we believe that Mike Huckabee is by far the best communicator in the race--he is able to articulate his conservative principles in an incredibly winsome and articulate manner. Moreover, among the principled conservatives, Huckabee is the only one who has been a governor. And we have not elected members of either the Senate or the House--and certainly not a mayor--as President of the United States in nearly a half century.

We believe that Mike Huckabee may be the only candidate in the race who could defeat Hillary Clinton in 2008.

Because of her past support for the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, we believe that it is absolutely essential to find a candidate who can beat her. If she is elected president, both homeschooling and parental rights would be in serious jeopardy.

To date, based on early polls, we are told that Rudy Giuliani is the front-runner for the GOP nomination. It is our judgment that Giuliani cannot possibly beat Hillary Clinton. Since 1976, no person running for president as a moderate Republican has ever won the election. (Not everyone running as a conservative proved to be a true conservative, but we are analyzing elections.) Ford and Dole--both moderates-- lost in 1976 and 1996. Reagan, a clear conservative, won landslides in 1980 and 1984. George H.W. Bush portrayed himself as a Reagan man in 1988 and won. But as president he violated his famous "read my lips-- no new taxes" pledge, and was defeated in 1992 when it had become clear to America that he was a moderate. George W. Bush ran as a conservative and was elected in 2000 and 2004.

Moderate Republicans simply cannot win the presidency. If the nation wants a Democrat, they choose the real thing. This is particularly true on the abortion issue. Giuliani supports Roe vs. Wade and will never win the support of the crucial block of social conservatives. Hillary Clinton will be elected president if Giuliani is the candidate. We think this is true of any of the other front-runners--none of whom comes close to being labeled a truly principled conservative. Do not believe the early polls. History is a far better means of analysis. No moderate Republican can be elected president.

We have taken this historic step of an early endorsement because the process of electing our president is based on a radically different timetable in this election. The vast majority of the primaries will be earlier than ever before. If we do not act now, all conservatives will be driven from the race by lack of funding and we will be left with only unacceptable choices.

Thus, we urge our members to do four things:


1. Support Mike Huckabee in your state's presidential primary (or other nomination process).

2. Please pray for him on a regular basis.

3. Please consider volunteering for his campaign. You can view his website at http://www.explorehuckabee.com/.

4. Please make a donation TODAY to his campaign at https://www.explorehuckabee.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=Contribute.Home.

Do not think that your gift is insignificant because you cannot give thousands of dollars. A campaign like Huckabee's will only work when thousands of friends network together giving, $25, $50, $100, or even just $10 each. Frankly, a campaign that receives $25 from 10,000 people is far stronger than a campaign that receives $10,000 from 25 people.

Grassroots conservatives often complain about the big-dollar types who try to control the process. The only solution is for a whole bunch of small-dollar people to stand together and give together. And the left has learned to drive millions of people to websites and to fund large campaigns based on grassroots supporters who contact their friends and urge them to get involved.

It is far safer for an organization like ours to sit silently on the sidelines for a long time. But, it is our judgment that we must get behind a conservative candidate who will provide a viable option to Hillary. Moreover, many of us have waited a long time for a presidential candidate who is a truly qualified and articulate man who
shares our values down to his core. Mike Huckabee entered politics for the same reason that most of us began homeschooling. He wants a future that is grounded upon timeless values.

We think that the time is now. Please support Mike Huckabee.

Sincerely,

J. Michael Smith
HSLDA President

Michael P. Farris
HSLDA Chairman & General Counsel

Little Rock, AR – Former AR Governor Mike Huckabee announced today he has received “an historic, early endorsement” of the Home School Legal Defense Association. The 80,000 member HSLDA is a nonprofit organization working to advocate the rights of parents to home-school their children.

“I’m extremely honored and proud to receive this unprecedented endorsement and show of early support from the Home School Legal Defense Association,” said Huckabee. “This is a significant development in the campaign.”

“We believe that Mike Huckabee, (former) Governor of Arkansas, should be elected the next President of the United States,” HSLDA President J. Michael Smith said in a call-to-action letter to members. Smith said HSLDA is taking this “historic step of an early endorsement” because of the process of electing the president is based on a radically different timetable in this election.

Smith touted Huckabee’s record as governor of Arkansas, pro-life, pro-family conservative values and presidential campaign platform, which includes a pro-defense plank and support for the FairTax, as reasons his organization stands behind Huckabee. There are a few other candidates in the race who are properly described as principled conservatives, but none of the media’s “frontrunners” would qualify for this designation, he stated.

“We believe that Mike Huckabee is by far the best communicator in the race – he is able to articulate his conservative principles in an incredibly winsome and articulate manner,” said Smith.

Noting that Americans have not elected a member of the House or Senate to the office of President in nearly half a century, Smith said: “Moreover, among the principled conservatives, Huckabee is the only one who has been a governor.”

Adding that, based on history, only a conservative Republican can win the presidential election, Smtih said: “We believe that Mike Huckabee may be the only candidate in the race who could defeat Hillary Clinton in 2008.”

“The vast majority of the primaries will be earlier than ever before. If we do not act now, all conservatives will be driven from the race by lack of funding and we will be left with only unacceptable choices,” he said.

Smith concluded: “Many of us have waited a long time for a presidential candidate who is a truly qualified and articulate man who shares our values down to his core. Mike Huckabee entered politics for the same reason that most of us began: home-schooling. He wants a future that is grounded upon timeless values.”

I'd like him more if he would actually blink his eyes every once in a while.

WTF? Huckabee is one of those guilty white Southerners who welcomes the "reconquista", and Brownback is an open-borders freakjob. They both need to get on the Special Republicans Short Bus with El Busho.

Ron Paul and Tom Tancredo are real conservatives. They're also both on their way to having more money than even some front-runners like McCain.

He doesnt sound like a pipsqueak (Ron Paul) , Ron Paul looks as presidential as Dennis Kucinich........
So you're writing off a candidate for something given to him by nature which he had no control over?

That's about as brainless as you can get.

Governor Huckabee did a great job answering questions in a very direct manner. He truly is a great communicator of ideas.

A survey of audience members in attendance showed that Mike was the most impressive candidate on the stage. About half of them had never heard of the governor before. They cited his honesty and willingness to tackle the questions head-on as big plusses.

Let's continue to support Governor Huckabee by telling others about him. The Ames Straw Poll is less than a week away!

Fox News just declared Mike Huckabee the debate winner! He answered the questions that were asked, and didn't just recite rehearsed lines about what he wanted to talk about. Huckabee hit the ball out of the ballpark with his responses on healthcare, taxation, infrastructure and most of all, when he committed to Americans that if he is elected President, he will work for US, just as he did when he was Governor of Arkansas. Way to go Governor Huckabee.
They just mentioned the latest ABC News poll, which has the Governor at 3rd among those in the debate..........

Huckabee is a joke, he doesn't stand a chance. A vote for Huckabee would be a waste of a vote.
