Huckabee Turning Out His Base on a Shoestring?

It’s easy to forget, when you see his poll numbers, just how underfunded Mike Huckabee’s campaign is. I talked to Ed Rollins earlier today, and asked what their internal polling was telling them. They don’t have any internal polling, because they can’t afford it. I asked if they were meeting their get-out-the-vote targets. They don’t have precinct-by-precinct GOTV lists, because they can’t afford them.

With the polls essentially tied, that should give McCain, who does have a GOTV operation, a huge advantage. But a Huckabee campaign insider called me up a few hours after I talked to Rollins to tell me that three Spartanburg-area precincts that they consider strongholds are showing huge turnout — precincts where 750, 375, and 775 voters turned out in 2000, 1000, 272, and 609 had turned out by noon today. Can this really neutralize McCain’s organizational advantage? We’ll know in a few hours.
