A Newsweek poll released this afternoon shows Mike Huckabee surging ahead of Mitt Romney in Iowa. It’s now 39% for Huckabee vs. 17% for Romney. Or, depending on one’s point of view, Romney is tanking. I’d have been open to either interpretation before yesterday, but since this comes just one day after Romney’s “I’m a Morman but … ” speech, I have to think there is a connection. That speech is backfiring.
