Poor Huckabee
by

Dave Weigel cites a list of second-quarter fundraising numbers and speculates that the paltry $763,000 raised by Mike Huckabee means he may drop out in September if he has a week showing in the Ames straw poll. I’d like to add that for all of the rave reviews Huckabee received from pundits following the three Republican debates, none of it has translated into either fundraising or movement in the polls. That says to me that either there is a severe disconnect between what pundits think will appeal to grassroots conservatives and what actual grassroots conservatives find appealing, or that most Americans have better things to do with their time right now than watch presidential debates. So, candidates looking to gain support by making a big splash at the debates may have to keep looking.
