Huckabee Not Running Highlights Polling Upside For Ron Paul


Now that Mike Huckabee has decided not to seek the Republican Presidential nomination, it’s an appropriate a time as ever to mention the potential upside for Texas Congressman Ron Paul that the former Arkansas Governor’s inclusion in the polling results was able to demonstrate.

The consensus opinion from most analysts is that Ron Paul has his base of hardcore-libertarian supports, but outside of that group, he has limited appeal. Huckabee’s wavering status and thus his inclusion and exclusion in polls has given us a unique opportunity to test this theory. Some polling firms ran polls with and without Huckabee over the past several weeks.
