It’s a good showing by Huckabee, who didn’t make the same investment in the straw poll that other campaigns made and was being counted out by some people on the scene today. Given that I’ve criticized Tom Tancredo’s campaign before, I think it worth noting his fourth place showing — behind Brownback and ahead of Ron Paul.
It is also interesting to note that John McCain did the worst of the candidates to bypass the event, only finishing ahead of John Cox, and that Fred Thompson did the best. Also, am I the only one who thinks Mitt Romney’s 31 percent is kind of weak given his advantages over the rest of the field?
