Huckabee "Moneybomb" raises $210k

Haha! The so-called front runner put together a moneybomb event, and couldn't even break $500k.

The other way to look at this is that money bomb front runner hasn't even been able to surge into double digits in mainstream polling.

Or that he's still polling well behind a guy who's raised about 1/4 the money.

If Huckabee can't raise any money, how can he buy media?

I think that Paul's fundraising vs. Huckabee's is proof that the mainstream polling is flawed. Nonetheless, Paul is gearing up for a pretty serious nationwide blitz here soon -- how big is said to depend on the fundraiser that we have this weekend, which we're expecting to at least match the record breaking day we had in November.

Mitt Romney could write himself a $10 million "money bomb" this afternoon. Is that further proof that mainstream polling is flawed?

Will more mainstream exposure help Ron Paul or hurt him? I can understand that he has a lot of appeal in the dark corners of anti-Jewish websites like Stormfront and radical neo-isolationist havens like anti-war.com, but will he be able to have the same mindshare penetration in Ward and June Cleaver's home or George and Louise Jeffersons?

I don't see how. Mitt Romney is one person.

He could raise more money that Paul. You previously suggested that Ron Paul raised more money than Huckabee* was evidence that 'mainstream' polling is flawed. Wouldn't a candidate raising even MORE money further prove that polling is flawed?


*on a single day, I'll take a look at overall numbers in a minute

Well, I've garnered a few contacts that I consider reliable since my television stint, and this is what I can tell you: the campaign's internal polling reflects much differently than what the mainstream polls are saying. As of right now, the campaign expects that they've got third place in Iowa essentially locked up, with only Huckabee and Romney mounting any serious grass roots fervency there. The campaign has met all of their precinct goals at this point, and are gearing up for a pretty serious personal blitz on the ground. In addition, they've just hired the guy who put together this video (which to answer your question, yes, more mainstream exposure of Ron Paul will be nothing short of great for us) to put together ads that they intend to blitz nationally.

We'll see how it pans out, but while the campaign wont go on record and say it, there is an expectation there that if things continue to fall out the way they are, Ron Paul could pull the upset of the century and walk away with both Iowa and New Hampshire.

You understand that Ron Paul is raising his money with people right? That he's not writing himself checks? That's a pretty key ingredient here that you seem to be missing.

If he wins both Iowa and NH, it will certainly be impressive.
