Readers favor Huckabee

Sunday, December 9, 2007

If national polls give a good indication of the direction citizens want the country to go in, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will receive the nod to run on the 2008 ticket.

If The Brazil Times' latest online poll means anything, it's Mike Huckabee.

In its latest website poll, The Brazil Times asked its readers, "Which Republican candidate are you following the most in the 2008 presidential campaign?"

More than 250 readers responded to the poll, with Huckabee earning the most votes.

Huckabee has been surging in recent national polls and is neck-and-neck with Romney in Iowa.

There were nine selections readers could choose from, including Huckabee, Romney, Rudy Guiliani, Duncan Hunter, Ron Paul, John McCain, Tom Tancredo, Fred Thompson or none.

Of the 262 readers that responded to the poll, Huckabee tallied 73 votes for 27.9 percent.

Coming in second was none as 59 readers (22.5 percent) said they were not following any of the presidential candidates.

Guiliani came in third with 44 votes (16.8 percent) while fourth was Thompson with 30 total votes (11.5 percent).

Paul was fifth with 25 votes (9.5 percent) while McCain was sixth at 19 votes (7.3 percent).

Romney was seventh with nine total votes (3.4 percent) followed by Hunter (two votes, 0.8 percent), and Tancredo (one vote, 0.4 percent).

One reader left a comment regarding the latest poll, stating, "He's the only one running that I would trust with my freedom." Unfortunately, "he" was not identified.

The Times' latest poll continues in the political arena. The Times is asking its readers, "Which Democratic candidate are you following the most in the 2008 presidential campaign?"

Readers may choose from Joe Biden, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Chris Dodd, John Edwards, Mike Gravel, Dennis Kucinich, Barack Obama, Bill Richardson or none.
