Posted on 04/04/2014 10:26:48 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
Mike Huckabee, whose win in the Iowa caucuses in 2008 put him on the national political map, holds an early lead there if he were to run again in 2016, according to a new poll.
The WPA Research poll shows the former Arkansas governor on top of a field of potential candidates at 14 percent.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is in second place at 10 percent, while the rest are in single digits.

Rand Paul 2016!
I’d vote to inflict bleeding hemorrhoids on myself first.
I would sure vote for Rand Paul over Hucklebee...but I would vote for Ted Cruz over both of them.
He was out matched in the debates in 2010.
Here is the actual poll data:
Well, surprise, surprise...the mainstream media trying to “shape” the process for selecting their RINO to be sacrificed to whoever the DemocRAT nominee is in 2016.
Iowa needs to be at the bottom of the heap when it comes to picking presidents. I am sick to death of these people and their twins in New Hampshire having ANY say in who we choose.
My attitude as well.
A bucket of warm spit.
People are just dying for a new and bold leader like Mike Huckabee!
Bingo. We get losers because the GOPe rigs the primary/caucus process to ensure that non-conservative locations have a disproportionate impact on the nominee selection process. Put Iowa and New Hampshire at the bottom for the next 20 years plus close the primaries so that Dems and Independents can't pick the GOP nominee either.
Chris Christie is done, Jeb Bush is a pariah so the establishment ruling elite are starting float the huckster for the repubs. Well this is about as much of a winner as Juan McCain and the Willard.
Hucksterbee is in there only to try to sabotage any conservatives he can.
CRUZ. Accept no substitutes.
Yeah, and Michelle Bachman won the straw poll back in 2011, and we all know how much that mattered in the end.
Wonder what the results would be with her included?
Additionally, do these people not realize that Paul is a full-on amnesty supporter and unlikely to change?
Huckaphony is road kill.
Cue the stories about his canine-hanging son. That'll really capture the independent vote.
No, no, no.
I will set my ballot on fire in the polling place before I vote for Huckabee. He’s almost as big a statist as Obama, and certainly just as big a statist as Bush 41 was.
Huck is a tool of the GOPe. His only job is to siphon off enough moral conservative votes to allow the establishment selected candidate to win by plurality. He has no expectations of winning. But, what is his pay-off?
Ron Paul did good with kids but they wouldn’t vote for him in the general. I think we will have some of that factor with Rand Paul too.
