Huckabee calls 2016 cycle 'bewildering'
7:49 p.m. CST January 3, 2016

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee called the 2016 election cycle perplexing Sunday due to voters shying away from candidates with past political experience.

"This has been, of all the election cycles I’ve been involved in, this has been one of the most bewildering, because it’s almost as if the more experience, the more preparation one has had for this job, it’s almost like it’s a detriment than it is an asset," Huckabee told a crowd in Urbandale.

The former Arkansas governor has struggled to gain traction in both Iowa and national polls as candidates viewed as outsiders — businessman Donald Trump, neurosurgeon Ben Carson and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz — hold the lead spots.

The most recent Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll showed Huckabee with 3 percent support among likely Republican caucusgoers. A RealClearPolitics average of Iowa polls shows Huckabee in sixth place behind Cruz, Trump, Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, Carson and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

Huckabee shrugged off his position in the polls Sunday, however, saying the election's entire dynamic can change once Iowans caucus on Feb. 1.

"Until they vote, the template has not been set. Once they vote, things get really interesting," Huckabee said.
