Here’s a Florida pastor’s cri de coeur for Huckabee: Where have all the evangelicals gone? The polls show Huck struggling in fourth place. If there are as many evangelicals in Florida as John Green thinks there is, then a smaller proportion of them are voting for Huckabee than elsewhere. Of course, there are various possible explanations for the numbers. Maybe there was not enough time or money to get the word out in so big and complex a state. Or maybe evangelical voters have decided that Huckabee has turned into an also-ran, and want to determine the winner. Or maybe the pollsters have failed to estimate the turnout of evangelicals properly. They’ve certainly been wrong before this primary season. We’ll see soon enough.
