This is very interesting. Go check out the AOL Political Machine Straw Poll. Ron Paul leads all states except for Utah (Mitt Romney), New Jersey, & New York (Rudy Guiliani in both). Ron Paul winning nationally and in 48 states is a no-brainer. He rules these things. However the past few days I have checked Huckabee continues to gain on Rudy nationally. If this is any indicator of what could happen next year I will argue that Mike might sweep the South as he is in 2nd place in almost all the Southern states. Here is where Mike is polling 2nd in this straw poll presently: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. That’s almost half of the country! While this poll may not be accurate it does show a trend that we might be able to see when things unfold after Iowa if Mike Huckabee wins there.
EDIT – John McCain just snatched Wyoming from Paul.
