    Poll: Mike Huckabee leads 2016 GOP hopefuls - Tal Kopan - POLITICO.com

    I shied away from him during the 2008 primary, just to religious for my blood. He had very stances on most issues though. Anyone that seems somewhat serious about a flat or fair tax is usually my go to candidate. I think I'd vote for him his go around, anyone would be better than another bush or christie's sorry behind.

    I'm tired of the same five or six who've tried and failed. We need NEW candidates, not second and third timers.
    I don't disagree with your first sentence, but I voted for Romney and still think he would have been a much better president that our current.

    As to your second sentence, please name some NEW candidates that actual stand a chance of winning a national election at that level.

    I like Huckabee. I heard him speak in person and was very impressed. But I agree with the following.

    I'm tired of the same five or six who've tried and failed. We need NEW candidates, not second and third timers.

    To me it seems we are really at the point where both parties are highly fractured and things are either ripe for a third party candidate or for the major parties to be taken over. Argument could be made that the D's have been taken over by socialists, but not to the extreme that real socialists would like. The R's could and should be overthrown by some Libertarian/Tea Party coalition if we could just get organized, financed and get some leadership with a clear and unified message that is communicated effectively in a modern way.

    Way better Huckabee is leading this poll than Romney, Ryan or Christie.

    Do we only vote for those candidates that we think will win? Or do we vote for the best candidate? If everyone voted for the one they think will win, he or she probably would win.
    Exactly! Better than Hillary. no? A protest vote again, or worse, not voting, will insure a Dem, most likely Hillary, will win.

    I happened to think Romney was our best candidate last time, but I know that not everyone did. Lets not in a debate about that because it doesn't matter now. But he was the candidate with the best chance to win. Wouldn't that have been better than 4 more years of BHO? Seriously!
