The Born-Again Vote

Evangelicals seem to be coalescing around two Republican candidates. Huckabee and Romney.

Romney just picked up a couple more endorsements from high-profile evangelical leaders. And Huckabee just did well in the Family Research Council’s “Value’s Voter Conference” straw poll.

If Pastor Mike wins the Iowa Caucuses, he’ll find himself in the top tier of candidates with Giuliani and Romney. One key question is where Catholic Sam Brownback’s pro-life supporters will go now that he is stepping out of the race.

Meanwhile, Fred Thompson doesn’t seem to be getting the traction one would have anticipated given all the expectancy and buzz surrounding his months-long, pre-announcement fan dance.
