  3. Huckabee has a shot at carrying states like Georgia and South Carolina, but he won’t win states like Ohio or Minnesota. I’m pretty confident that when the primaries play out, he’ll find his support pretty much isolated to the southeast.

    I think you’re spot on in framing Huckabee’s electability in the context of the religious affiliation of the current president. I think for good or bad, W. set a sort of standard for how much religion Americans want in the white house. W is the limit; any more is too much. In the end, Rudy and McCain are going to have a wider audience, and I think Huckabee’s religion will end up working against him.

    I don’t necessarily agree with this position, but a close friend in Cleveland, OH made a statement I think will resonate with a lot of folks. We were talking about Huckabee and my friend asked “Don’t the bad guys believe they’re agents of God?” I don’t think this individual was trying to compare baptist christianity to fundamental islam; but I think his concern is valid and will probably be mirrored in the majority of voting republicans.
