Regarding Governor Tommy Thompson, I don’t think will be in the race very much longer. The Straw Poll is going to be do or die for him. Congressman Tom Tancredo doesn’t have much of a chance either since he hasn’t not received much media attention here in Iowa, and I believe his comments on immigration in the last debate will hurt him. Congressman Duncan Hunter is too much of a one-issue candidate right now. During his interview with the Register, all of his answers slanted toward national security (which I agree is important) I was amazed at how he linked his answer to a question on education back to national security showing what little depth he has when it comes to other issues. Congressman Ron Paul I believe is only popular on Facebook and MySpace, his poll numbers are abysmal.
I believe of all the candidates Huckabee, Brownback, and perhaps Fred Thompson (if he would declare already) have the most appeal, as far as, their values are concerned. Huckabee and Fred Thompson are probably the most electable of the three, and I believe Huckabee has the best experience of the three, and that is why he is my choice. So my challenge to Iowa’s evangelicals and other social conservatives is to get out to the straw poll and vote your conscience. Forget the polls and be a rebel! The war in Iraq and National Security are important, but they are not the only issues. Let’s not the mainstream media crown anybody for us.
