Let me answer my own questions-
1 Ron Paul
2 Paul also wants to get rid of the IRS and Federal Reserve
3 He is a Texas Rep
4 Well, he is ron paul
5 Gun Owners and Homeschoolers

Let me commentate if I may on your response to my round 1 questions.

"1 Mike Huckabee
2 he wants to get rid of the IRS
3 he was the governor of Arkansas
4 he actully has a chance
5 the one that gets votes"

2-Ron Paul also wants to get rid of the IRS
3-Governor, not bad.
4- You say he actually has a chance? Huckabee has raised only 4 million. His goal is 5 million! Ron Paul has raised 18 million+
5- You say he is the one that gets votes? View the Straw Poll Results link I put. Ron Paul has the best record. http://www.ronpaul2008.com...

Please show me now how Huckabee is better than Dr.Paul?

Did the Iowa Caucus prove anything last night?
Posted by impactyourworld89 9 years ago
impactyourworld89
Yes, however, NBC's Meet the Press will be interviewing both Obama and Huckabee just days before the Iowa Caucus. You can't deny that that is who NBC wants to win, and Huckabee will probably receive a sudden surge just when he needs it.

what do recent polls have anything to do with this? The media can change at any second who they support, and when the media supports someone that's who gets ahead in the polls.

Dorky, please cite your source showing where Huckabee has ever been in the lead. Check out those straw polls links, Dr.Paul beat Huckabee in 42 and lost to him in only 6.
