Huckabee Tops Romney In Evangelical Votes

Mitt Romney’s master plan failed. The former Massachusetts governor hoped to revamp his image for the right wing, but an overwhelming amount of Evangelicals prefer Iowa winner Mike Huckabee

More than eight in 10 Huckabee supporters said they are born again or evangelical Christians, compared to less than half of Romney’s. Nearly two-thirds of Huckabee backers also said it was very important that their candidate share their religious beliefs, compared to about one in five of Romney’s.

Surprisingly, only half of Huckabee’s supporters consider themselves “conservative”, as do half of Romney lovers.

Meanwhile, 60% of Huckabee caucusers say “values” are important in picking a president. They do not, however, have much faith in Huckabee’s White House odds: “…Fewer than one in 20 said they thought he had the best chance of wining [sic] in November.”
