I was just on an NPR program with a conservative activist who was making the case that the religious right should coalesce around Mike Huckabee. She downplayed the significance of Huckabee’s fundraising woes, saying that the top-tier candidates all have problems with the base (she didn’t mention Huckabee’s problems with economic conservatives) but the fact that Ron Paul raised five times as much money this quarter shows how unlikely this is. A case can be made that Paul, not Huckabee, sits on top of the second tier.
