Huckabee, Kasich: Campaigns will continue, amid persistently low polls numbers

by  |  published on December 28, 2015

Mike Huckabee and John Kasich on Sunday dismissed suggestions that they would end their struggling Republican presidential campaigns before having to compete in a second-tier debate or suffer a big loss in the upcoming Iowa primary vote.

“Of course I’m not,” Huckabee responded on “Fox News Sunday.” “Not one person in all of America has even voted. … It’s never settled this far out.”

Huckabee, a social conservative and former Arkansas governor, won the Iowa caucus in his 2008 presidential bid. But this time he’s ranked eighth in the GOP field of 12 and has only 1.8 percent of the primary vote, according to a RealClearPolitics averaging of polls.

Social conservatives historically do well in Iowa, which holds its first-in-the-nation vote Feb. 1. However, Huckabee’s path toward a 2016 victory has been narrowed by fellow GOP contender Ted Cruz, the like-minded and firebrand Texas senator. Cruz is now leading overall GOP frontrunner Donald Trump in Iowa, some polls show.

    Careful, these two guys, and Jeb Bush are hanging in there for one reason. The GOP are trying everything they can to push Trump out, if they succeed then Cruz will be the next one that they will try to get rid of, then they think that they can open the door for Bush, or Rubio. If that happens we are in for more of the same old garbage.

      DO NOT let that happen. Listen to yourself, not the talking head experts or the polls. Both are biased and manipulative to their way of thinking. Do your own thinking and vote your conscience. Let’s take back our country and make America great again. (and no, I am not endorsing Trump)

        I am listening to myself. I can see the game that the GOP is playing, they have even admitted it. So, all I am saying is be careful, be wise. If you are ok with a RINO, fine, but I am not.

          We are in the same playbook and on the same page. Pray for America.

    I know Cruz would NOT win with Huckabee on the ticket, but Mike would really be a great VP to Ted because GREAT men think ALIKE!

    It’s not over till the fat lady sings. There is only one poll that counts and that is done in an voting booth.
