Huckabee’s man on the spot in Iowa Eric Woolson says of the latest polling: “I think the polling reflects Governor Huckabee’s strong appeal to Iowans and the connection he’s able to make with voters but the important point to remember about the Iowa caucuses is that it’s an organizational process. We have a lot of hard work to do in the remaining 51 days leading up to Jan. 3. The goal has always been to finish in the top three and that goal is unchanged.” Well, suffice it to say that their goal is probably higher than third but it’s smart to manage expectations. Romney’s fix is a bit of his own making– with hundreds of events in the state and millions spent in ads and the Ames straw poll all he has is a 6-11% lead over Mike Huckabee. That said all that money and time spent by Romney did go into setting up an organization and it could very well deliver on January 3. One more important point: nearly 60% of Iowans say it’s too early to make up their minds.
