  • Presidential Candidates in Their Home States

    How well are the candidates doing in the primaries in their homes states? Can they carry at least a majority? Is having more than two viable candidates affecting the Republicans? The following charts might provide a little insight to these questions.

    John McCain in Arizona

    John McCain stands alone as the candidate not to win a majority vote in his home state. Ron Paul is the only remaining candidate who could match this “achievement.”

    If the 3% that voted for Rudy Giuliani had voted for McCain, his total would have been 50%. And if bullfrogs had wings… It’s pretty weak support for the likely winner of the Republican nomination.

    Mike Huckabee in Arkansas

    Republican Arkansas voters turned out to give Mike Huckabee a clear win at 60% compared to McCain’s 20% and Romney’s 14%.

    Mitt Romney in Massachusetts

    Mitt Romney wins in a squeaker with 51% of the vote in a virtual two-man race against John McCain. The other three candidates received less than 10% of the vote combined.

    Ron Paul in Texas

    This primary will occur on March 4.

    Hillary Clinton in Arkansas

    Not much to see here — move along. Hillary Clinton trounces Barack Obama with 70% vs. 27%.

    Barack Obama in Illinois

    Barack Obama returns the favor by beating Hillary Clinton, though not by quite the same margin, at 64% vs. 33%.

  • Quote of the Day — Mike Huckabee

    We’ve had a congress that’s spent money like John Edwards in a beauty shop.

    Mike Huckabee

    That’s going to be hard to top. :-)

    Update: Here’s some video. Unfortunately, Huckabee’s quip was so good, it overshadowed his advocacy for the Fair Tax.
