At Politico, Andy Barr notes:
In the latest Gallup Poll released Friday, he’s the Republican leader, ahead of 16 other presidential prospects. Regardless of what’s being polled, who’s doing the polling or how the question is asked, among Republicans Huckabee typically finishes on top.
Who is best liked? Mike Huckabee.
Whom do Fox News viewers favor? Mike Huckabee.
Who does the South want to be president? Mike Huckabee.
Poll the early primary states, and the former Arkansas governor is winning. Match up any of the 2012 contenders with President Barack Obama, and Huckabee usually runs strongest.
