Dallas Morning News Endorses Mike Huckabee

A wonderfully written endorsement of our candidate.

Mike Huckabee for the Republican nomination

Many Republican voters are dissatisfied with the GOP presidential candidates this year. We share that frustration. But one of these men is going to be the party’s nominee. Of this field, Mike Huckabee is the best choice.

It was a hard decision. In most respects, Mr. Huckabee, who governed Arkansas as a pragmatic, compassionate conservative, is not dramatically different from his main GOP competitors. He is somewhat better on energy and the environment, and though none of the Republicans are as forward-thinking about Iraq as they should be, Mr. Huckabee’s emphasis on diplomatic engagement in the Middle East is fresh and welcome.

Mr. Huckabee established a respectable record of fiscal responsibility in Arkansas. Rather than run up deficits, he backed raising taxes to pay for needed infrastructure, health care and education. That’s called prudence, and it was once a Republican virtue.

Mr. Huckabee is not an ideal candidate. Once a Bush-style Republican on immigration, his recent hard-right turn smells of opportunism. He too often wings it on foreign policy. But Govs. Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush also took office without foreign-policy experience. Much depends on the quality of a president’s advisers. A chief executive’s core foreign-policy convictions matter most, and on those, Mr. Huckabee is a standard conservative.

His religious conservatism, particularly his past rhetoric on women and gays, can be alarming. But religious conservatives aren’t easily pigeonholed. A liberal Arkansas professor told The New York Times Magazine that Mr. Huckabee was a good governor. ‘‘When he first came to office, people like me were worried about the religious aspect,” she said. “And he is very orthodox on gays, guns and God. But he knows there’s more than just these issues.”

Indeed. Mr. Huckabee has a stout heart for working families and the poor, which as governor got him crossways with some Republicans. Though his strident criticism of free trade is misguided, the economically moderate Mr. Huckabee seems particularly attuned to the anxieties ordinary Americans face in this era of rapid change.

And he is one social conservative who’s acutely aware of the call to racial healing. In 1997, when Little Rock Central High commemorated integration’s 40th anniversary, Gov. Huckabee delivered a magnificent speech about race, justice and reconciliation that left many in the audience weeping.

It was a profound and profoundly moving address, and it revealed an unusual gift for leadership. Plain-spoken and eloquent, Mr. Huckabee strikes us as decent, principled and empathetic to the views and concerns of others – an antidote to the power-mad partisanship that has led U.S. politics to a dispiriting standstill.

“I’m a conservative,” he likes to say. “I’m just not mad about it.” Along those lines, what sold us on Mr. Huckabee is a sense that of all the Republicans, he is the change agent the nation most needs. John McCain, whose candidacy is quite appealing despite concern about his age and temperament, was arguably that man once. But his moment has passed.

America needs a clean break from the bitter politics of the recent past. From the right, Mike Huckabee, a progressive conservative with a pastor’s heart, can deliver.<!– Image1 start //

RASMUSSEN BREAKING POLL: IOWA-HUCKABEE 28% ROMNEY 25%

Republican Iowa Caucus

Iowa: Huckabee 28% Romney 25%

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the Iowa caucus finds former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee with 28% of the vote, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney with 25% support, and everyone else far behind. National frontrunner Rudy Giuliani gets just 12% of the vote in Iowa at this time while former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson is the only other candidate in double digits at 11% (see crosstabs). Given the margin of error, the challenges of determining the relatively small number of people who will participate in a caucus, and other factors, the race is far too close to call at this point in time. However, the fact that Romney is no longer the clear frontrunner in Iowa reflects a stunning change in the race.

Compared to our prior survey, the trend is unmistakable—Huckabee has gone up and just about everybody else has gone down. Huckabee’s 28% support represents a twelve point increase from a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted earlier in the month. Romney is down four points while Giuliani and Thompson are each down three points from the previous survey. John McCain is down two points and earns just 4% support. Ron Paul picked up a point and is now at the 5% level.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of Evangelical Christians support Hucakbee. That’s more than all the other candidates combined. Romney attracts 16% of the Evangelical vote.

Among those who have participated in the caucuses before, Huckabee attracts 30% support while Romney is at 23%. Among those who have not taken part in the caucuses before, it’s Romney 29% Huckabee 26%. A separate Rasmussen Reports article looks at some of the questions that would be raised if Huckabee wins the Iowa caucuses.

Overall, Romney is the second choice for 21% of likely caucus participants. Huckabee is the second choice for 16%, Giuliani for 15% and Thompson for 14%.

The field still remains quite fluid. Twelve percent (12%) of likely caucus participants say there is a good chance they could still change their mind while 29% say they might change their mind. Among those who say there is a good chance they might change their mind, Romney is the second choice for 25%, Giuliani for 21%, Thompson for 18%, and Huckabee for 17%.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Huckabee supporters say they are certain to vote for him. Forty-nine percent (49%) of Giuliani’s supporters say the same along with 48% of Romney voters and 46% of those for Thompson.

At the other extreme, 17% of Giuliani supporters say there is a good chance they could change their mind before January 3 arrives. Sixteen percent (16%) of Romney’s backers say the same along with 12% of those for Huckabee and 8% for Thompson.

Among those likely to take part in the Iowa Republican caucuses, Romney is viewed favorably by 77%, Huckabee by 76%, Giuliani by 68%, and Thompson by 71%. Those numbers reflect an eleven point-gain for Huckabee and a six-point decline for Giuliani while impressions of the other candidates is essentially unchanged.

As for unfavorables, just 20% offer a negative assessment of Huckabee. Twenty-one percent (21%) have an unfavorable opinion of Romney, 24% say the same about Thompson, and 30% have a negative opinion of Giuliani.

McCain’s numbers have fallen since the previous Rasmussen Reports survey. Among Republicans likely to participate in the caucus, 54% have a favorable opinion of the Arizona Senator while 44% have an unfavorable view.

Ron Paul is viewed favorably by 39% and unfavorably by 52%.

Highlighting the personal nature of the Iowa caucuses, 44% of those who are likely to participate have seen at least one of the Presidential candidates in person this year.

Forty-six percent (46%) of likely caucus participants think that Romney will win in Iowa this year while 25% think Huckabee will win on January 3. No other candidate reaches double digits.

Thirty-four percent (34%) believe that Romney will ultimately win the GOP nomination. Twenty-four percent (24%) believe Giuliani will represent the GOP in 2008 while 16% think that Huckabee will emerge victorious in the end.

Twenty-five percent (25%) of likely caucus participants identified immigration as the most important voting issue. Twenty-one percent (21%) named national security as their top issue while 18% said the economy was most important and 14% ranked the War in Iraq as the top issue.

While Huckabee has caught Romney in Iowa, the former Massachusetts Governor enjoys a strong lead in New Hampshire, site of the first-in-the-nation Presidential Primary. Rasmussen Reports is polling in New Hampshire this week and will release new results later in the week.

All polling for caucus events presents challenges in determining who is likely to show up and participate. In conducting and analyzing this survey, Rasmussen Reports reviewed results for many possible levels of turnout. While the results varied modestly depending upon the turnout model, the overall dynamic was the same in all cases—Huckabee in the lead with Romney closely behind while Giuliani, and Thompson lagged. See information on screening questions and the sample used in this telephone survey.

Huckabee 21%

Press Release: America Agrees: Fred Needs to Debate Mike

September 10, 2007

LITTLE ROCK, AR – Over the last 72 hours, nearly 1,500 Americans have joined former Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee in his call to former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson to participate in a series of Lincoln Douglas-styled debates.

“On Friday, I sent a letter to Senator Thompson outlining our shared desire to participate in a series of Lincoln Douglas-styled debates. Senator Thompson had initially suggested in a Fox News interview that this would be a better format for debate. In that letter, I officially accepted his offer and suggested that we start this series of debates in New Hampshire,” said Huckabee.

Huckabee’s presidential campaign posted his invitation to Thompson on his web-site (www.mikehuckabee.com) with an opportunity for average citizens to co-sign his letter. Since Friday, nearly 1,500 people have co-signed the letter so far; traffic to the Governor’s website is at a record-high; and nearly three dozen new “bloggers for Huckabee” have joined his team.

Huckabee said he has received no official response from Sen. Thompson to date, but welcomes his reply.

“Yesterday while on CNN, Wolf Blitzer offered for CNN to broadcast the debate. The only thing we’re waiting on is for Senator Thompson to show up and debate. Senator Thompson can pick the date, he can pick time, and he can pick the place,” said Huckabee.

“I urge him to accept the invitation of the American people and show that he’s capable of leading by example – and isn’t afraid of expressing his views and his vision for America in a comprehensive one-on-one Lincoln Douglas-styled debate,” he said.

Last month, Huckabee signed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s pledge to participate in a series of lengthy debates with the American people – a concept that was embraced by Thompson on his interview with Jay Leno last week. “I think this is a great idea, and one that the American people would benefit from,” said Huckabee. “I’m glad that Senator Thompson agrees.”

The text of Gov. Huckabee’s letter, along with the names and comments of nearly 1,500 co-signers, can be found on his website (www.mikehuckabee.com) by clicking here.

“I’m pleased that citizens from all across America have enthusiastically endorsed this idea with their signature and have called on Senator Thompson to debate me at the location of his choice – preferably in a key state such as New Hampshire,” said Huckabee.
