Today's Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll shows Mike Huckabee with 14% support nationally. This is up from 6% on 10/1 and puts him in third place behind Guliani and Thompson and ahead of McCain and Romney. He has really come on strong lately.
While Huckabee is still a long shot he is gaining momentum and I believe that if people can believe that he really is electable there is a base of support that can swell up to lead him to the Republican nomination.
I wouldn't support just any religious leader to be President, but Mike has 10+ years experience as Governor of Arkansas and is a man of conviction and compassion.
If you are interested in helping with Huckabee's campaign, next to the official Huckabee site, I recommend Huck's Army Forum - http://forum.hucksarmy.com
Also today, Randy Alcorn posted an endorsement of Huckabee on his blog:
