Rosso is back and directs me to Gallup polling, a bit more than a week old. One finding is on favorability rating. It's not surprising that Mike Huckabee's rating is a fairly low 17 percent. Most people surveyed didn't know him. But I thought it interesting that his unfavorables were statistically the same at 14, with a 3 percent margin of error.
Gallup also did a world of presidential horse race questions and questions aimed at comparing various candidates such as Obama and Clinton. Huckabee is way back in the pack here, too. Generally favorable media coverage hasn't created a popular groundswell yet. But he's still plugging.
