Back in 2008 Mike Huckabee won the Iowa Republican Caucus and several other primaries. And while he ultimately came up short, it’s fair to say he was a legitimate contender for a while.
This time around … not so much. The former Arkansas governor has been polling in the single digits, and FiveThirtyEight.com currently lists his chances of winning Iowa at less than one percent. So it’s safe to say that barring something drastic, Mike Huckabee will not be the next President of the United States of America.
Is this Adele music parody released earlier today by the Huckabee campaign the drastic measure needed to right the ship? Or a sad cry for help? Only time will tell.
On second though, we don’t have to wait for time to tell. It’s not going to change anything. But on the flip side, the nice thing about being part of a long-shot campaign is that nothing you do matters. So why not make silly videos with campaign donations? I hope he took those sweet, sweet federal matching funds.
