Oh, GOP — just when I thought we were about to kiss and make up:
n the wake of his “Uncle Sugar” comments at the Republican National Committee Winter Meeting, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has taken the lead in a hypothetical 2016 Republican primary, according to a new poll.
Huckabee gained 3 points in the past month to top the GOP field at 16 percent, according to a left-leaning Public Policy Polling survey released Wednesday.
I’m not sure how much faith I’d put in a PPP poll of GOP contenders, not to mention that we’re still a couple years away from getting serious. That said, I hope Huck’s rise has more to do with Christie’s troubles than it does for any extra Republican love for Huckabee.
