Who Won the Iowa Debate

Who won the Republican debate Sunday?

Ask Frank Luntz, the leading Republican pollster and political consultant, who gathered, along with Fox News, a group of 29 GOP voters from the Des Moines area to watch and respond to the debate. The answer was Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Huckabee is hitting it out of the park with these people,” Luntz said while measuring the reactions of the voters during the debate.

Before the debate started, nine of the 29 expected Mitt Romney to be the winner, eight were for Rudy Giuliani, five were for Fred Thompson, two were for John McCain, one for Huckabee, and the rest of the candidates were picked by none or one.

When the debate ended, 14 were for Huckabee, 10 for Romney, Giuliani had three, and one each for Fred Thompson and Duncan Hunter.

Mike Huckabee resonates with voters. His popularity is surging. He is the man to lead America in 2008!

"One of our Own"

(New Man, America's #1 magazine for Christian men, published four articles in its July/August 2007 edition on the race to become America's next president. This is an excerpt from one of those articles. The reader is encouraged to get the magazine and read all four articles.)

Mike Huckabee is pro-life, pro-family and the happily married father of three who is a former pastor. After being governor of Arkansas for 10 years, he may be the best qualified candidate to become U.S. president in 2008.

His name might not be familiar yet. You haven't seen him on Oprah or spotted his face on the cover of Time magaine. Yet when it comes to character, experience, and the qualities of a great leader, Mike Huckabee has them.

Don't be misled by the news coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign. Based on the media's whim and the ever-changing mood of a drama-hungry public, an artificial top tier of presidential candidates is being presented.

These "frontrunners" often have more style than substance and better marketability than morality. Catapulted to prominence, they steal the spotlight from more worthy candidates, who suffer the silent death of media neglect.

This image-making affects even Christian voters. Rather than supporting someone who represents our core values, we compromise, opting for a candidate simply because we are told that he or she can win.

Let's stop this trend. As Christian men we have a duty to help shape the future of our country.

(ed. note-Please pick up a copy of the New Man magazine. It lays out well the case for Mike Huckabee to win the presidency!)

Why I Am For Mike Huckabee

I am a pastor and I am a community leader. I care about the people in my town and in my nation. I want a person with firm Christian values in the White House leading our country. I want a person who understands that the real power for leading a great nation is found on his knees in his personal prayer life.

Mike Huckabee is a committed Christian who understands what it is to seek God's will.

I have known Gov. Huckabee since he was a senior in high school. We lived in the same dorm in college at Ouachita Baptist University. I have put my feet under he and his wife Janet's dinner table. I have known him up close and he has always been a person of solid Christian integrity.

Following what he accomplished as governor of Arkansas, it is obvious to me that he knows what it takes to be a government leader. He has made things happen that have bettered the lives of the people of his state. I am convinced he will bring that same integrity and leadership to Washington.

I heartily endorse the candidacy of Mike Huckabee for President of the United States.
