Another confirmation of Governor Huckabee's great favorability ratings. :D

Republican Candidates' Images Across GOP Segments

by James Bird and Frank Newport
October 9, 2015

A special Gallup analysis of how Republicans and Republican-leaning independents feel about the leading Republican presidential candidates shows each has a unique fan base within the party.

Quote:
These results are based on interviews conducted Aug. 1-Oct. 6, 2015, with each major GOP candidate rated as favorable or unfavorable by about 4,900 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.

Quote:
Region...

Kasich, governor of a Midwestern state, receives much lower favorable ratings in the South, while his ratings in the Midwest are not significantly different from those in the East. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz gets much higher ratings in the South, while Huckabee and Bush, both former Southern state governors, also get higher ratings in that region.

Quote:
Age

Three candidates -- Christie, Huckabee and Trump -- receive much higher favorable ratings across all groups of Republicans aged 30 and older compared with the reference category of Republicans aged 18 to 29.

Quote:
Race and Ethnicity...

Hispanics are strongly higher in their favorable ratings of Bush, who speaks fluent Spanish and whose wife is originally from Mexico, and Rubio, whose parents are Cuban. Hispanics are also higher in their rating of Mike Huckabee. Ted Cruz's father is Cuban, but his image among Hispanic Republicans is no different than among whites.

Quote:
Education and Income

Trump's image is much less positive among Republicans who are college graduates and those with a postgraduate education than among the reference category of those with a high school degree or less. Huckabee also receives much lower ratings among postgraduates, while Cruz's ratings are somewhat lower among this group.

Quote:
Religiosity...

The four candidates who get the highest favorable ratings among the most religious group include Huckabee, Cruz, Rubio and Bush. Huckabee, a former minister, is the only candidate who receives a much higher rating among both the moderate and the very religious segments.

Quote:
Ideology

Republicans who are conservative and, in particular, very conservative, tend to be more positive about many of the candidates, compared with the reference group of moderate/liberal Republicans. Overall, six of the nine candidates -- Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump -- are rated much more positively by very conservative Republicans than by those who are moderate/liberal.

With numbers like these - once the Huckabee-rocket takes off, and with enough funds, it will be unstoppable.

You have hit upon the reason, Peter, that I believe CNN and FoxNews and others have worked so hard to keep Huckabee silent on the debate stage. They know he will be unstoppable, once people can get the focus off Donald Trump's saying, " So-and-so is a very nice person, and I like him (or her), but he (or she) is just a poor manager (or ugly, or stupid, or lazy, or too timid, or too slow), ;-) and once they actually get to hear Huckabee's wisdom on many matters, his history of successful governing, and his clear and astounding solutions to America's problems.

The news networks generally do not think favorably of Christian wisdom or principle and look down on anyone of faith who fails to follow their own rebellion and rejection of Christian ethic. They worship at the altar of intellectualism and power, too often. They need our prayers. They need Christ. The little people get this.
