Huckabee tops latest Rasmussen poll

Governor Mike Huckabee continues to built a lead among Republicans. The latest sign of that is a Rasmussen poll dated October 16:

Huckabee 29%
Romney 24%
Palin 18%
Gingrich 14%
Pawlenty 4%

The accompanying article mentions, "These numbers reflect an improvement for Huckabee since July when the three candidates were virtually even. Huckabee’s gain appears to be Palin’s loss as Romney’s support has barely changed."

The article also notes - "Romney leads all prospects among voters who attend church once a month or less. Huckabee leads among more frequent churchgoers. Huckabee holds a huge lead among Evangelical Christians with Palin in second and Romney a distant third. Huckabee and Romney are essentially even among other Protestants while Romney has the edge among Catholics."

We have to work on that Catholic part.
