McCain still needs more than 300 pledged delegates to lock up the nomination:

GOP support for Huckabee remains stable near 30 percent nationwide:

McCain wasn’t one of my top three choices a couple of months ago. However, Huckabee didn’t make the top five. I’ve seen Huckabee in person on the campaign trail several times. It didn’t take long to notice he has spent way too long studying the Clinton play book of politics.

Does Huckabee at any point bother to mention the name of the fellow he’s running against. Usually people running for office tend to do that at some point.

Even if Senator John McCain were to pass away between now and the Minneapolis GOP convention, Governor Mike Huckabee would NOT be the nominee. Someone like Governor Tim Pawlenty will be brought in as a compromise candidate.

I supported Fred as the best until he dropped out. At that point, Huckabee was the sole remaining candidate worthy of my vote in Tennessee and he received it. If I would not vote for someone in the primary, my new rule is that I will not vote for them in the general.

Me, my wife, and daughter, voted for him today. I know my best friend and his wife will on Tuesday.

That's 5.

I know my daughters boyfriend and his family will vote for Him Tuesday, and that's a bunch. Probably about 12 more. We have discussed this quite a bit and we want to send McCain a message. Hunter was my first choice, then Thompson. I don't want to just throw my vote away on someone not even running, so it's Huckabee.

I just hope it's enough to keep McCain humble. If its 70% to 30%, You won't be able to wipe that grin off McPains pie hole. He believes he doesn't need Christian conservatives and he can count on RINO's and crossover Dems to win. We will have Kennedy and Clinton in the White house more than Republicans if McCain wins.

No problems with what you said. I credit you with not being bitter (or holding a grudge) like some of the others.

I acknowledge that keeping McCain from (or voting Huckabee into) the nomination is unlikely, but I also say that a vote of conscience counts.

I will vote for Huckabee in NC on May 5, whether it alters the outcome or not. In the meantime, I’ll be watching the angry mob spew. If they think I’m wasting my time, they don’t realize the irony in their posts knocking Huckabee.

I thank God that the Founding Fathers of this country were not quitters - like so many GOP robots voicing their rehearsed rhetoric here in this post!

Of all the anti-Huck rhetoric about him, I never hear any substantiative opposition to any of his Conservative positions as outlined on:

http://www.mikehuckabee.com/?FuseAction=Issues.Home

It’s always a bunch of juvenile, drive-by comments. So those of you that profess to be so conservative, let me ask you this:

If you believe that Huckabee isn’t really that conservative, then what would you consider McCain? (those of you who haven’t had the McCain chip planted in your brain yet by the GOP can answer this... ) Please outline in what area McCain is the better choice on the issues???

Don’t buy into the electability (The Karl Rove steal your real vote) argument!

I can’t understand the sudden McCAin love here at FR. What happened to the poll showing 92% of the members didn’t want McCain? Huckabee wasn’t my first choice or even second or third, but he never used the Constitution like toilet paper as John McCain did. For this reason, I am voting against John McCain in the primary. McCain needs to realize it take more than a speech at CPAC and list of endorsements to win me over.

I know that the odds are against him, but what do you mean he has already lost? McCain needs to get around 70% of the remaining bounded delegates to clinch the nomination (I know the mainstream media, often considered McCain’s base, has spun the math in a bunch of different ways). It is most likely going to go into a brokered convention, and hey, Abraham Lincoln had gotten the nomination this way and I think at least another president or two. So why couldn’t it happen again?

Here are some numbers I saw on another post ...

Here are the bound and unbound totals as of 2/14/2008 .....McCain has 796 bound and 18 unbound delegates.
.
Now let’s do some math:
McCain needs 395 bound delegates to reach 1191 of the remaining states:
.
Texas - 137 bound and 3 unbound
Ohio - 88 UNBOUND
South Dakota - 24 bound and 3 unbound
Wisconsin - 37 bound and 3 unbound
Vermont - 17 bound
Idaho - 26 bound and 6 unbound
Hawaii - 20 bound
Pennsylvania - 74 UNBOUND
Oregon - 27 bound and 3 unbound
Puerto Rico - 20 bound and 3 unbound
North Carolina - 69 bound
Indiana - 27 bound and 30 UNBOUND
Kentucky - 45 bound
Mississippi - 36 bound and 3 unbound
Rhode Island - 17 bound and 3 unbound
Nebraska - 30 bound and 3 unbound
New Mexico - 29 bound and 3 unbound
.
There are 561 bound delegates left of which Mr. McCain must win 71% of to reach 1191.....now when was the last time he won with 71% of the vote?
Now Huck will probably win Nebraska, Kentucky, Mississippi, and South Dakota.......if this happens, then McCain would have to win just about every remaining delegate, and that is not likely to happen.
Basically, McCain would almost have to run the board of the other states to win......not likely.

THE MSM IS LUMPING BOTH BOUND AND UNBOUND IN THEIR TOTALS.......VERY MISLEADING

So, as you can see, Huck is still in the race. It is not over yet. The media is lying to you. Don’t buy into it. Furthermore, McCain has backed out of a debate with Huckabee that was scheduled for end of February because he is afraid to let the public see Huckabee in action. In addition, McCain is running into possible money problems to finance his campaign due to limitations on campaign financing introduced into law by his own doing! Won’t it be interesting to see how the “straight shooter” gets around this one?????

If any of you think that you can support Huck instead of McCain - then make your vote count. Do what you believe and don’t give up.

Strange math. You're assuming that Huck will get the lion's share of the unbound delegates and McCain will get few of them. That's like assuming the Red Sox fans will mostly be Yankee fans next year.

"If you believe that Huckabee isn’t really that conservative, then what would you consider McCain?"

Are there any serious McCain positions he's opposed to? Huck acts like he's McCain plus 1%. Big deal. It's up to him to paint the differentiation. But he's too busy making snide remarks about Romney (still).

First, was sorta for Thompson,
Then I was sorta for Romney,
Now I'm sorta for McCain,
I thought about Huck, but he doesn't like me much. ---But then, neither does McCain.
