Value Voters Favor Huckabee

Among the contenders for the GOP Presidential nomination, Mike Huckabee is the clear front runner among Value Voters.

At the Values Voter Summit in Washington this weekend, Huckabee easily won the Presidential straw poll taken Saturday with nearly 29 percent of the vote - getting more than double the support of any other candidate, and, in fact, besting any two other candidates combined!'

Romney, Pawlenty, Palin and Pence each won roughly 12 percent of the 597 votes cast.

It's a long way to 2012, but if he can sew up the conservative and religious base, he can then reach out to broaden his appeal to independents and moderates.
