Or could it be his message that’s resonating with social conservatives?

Maybe a little bit of both?

On the GOP side, Mitt Romney leads in Iowa and New Hampshire, while Rudy Giuliani is ahead in South Carolina. However, this biggest news is that Mike Huckabee got a bounce from his second place finish in the recent Ames Straw Poll. Huckabee is now at 17% in Iowa, 12% in New Hampshire, and 11% in South Carolina.

That’s quite a bounce. And there is NO other candidate as likeable and seemingly genuine as Huckabee. Not in the GOP and not on the Dem side.

Unless he has some serious misstep, he’ll be one to watch come early next year.
