Republican presidential hopeful, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, second from right, pauses during a campaign stop in Bedford, N.H. Saturday, Dec.1, 2007.

The latest Des Moines Register Iowa Poll has been released and Mike Huckabee is now leading.

  • Mike Huckabee – 29% (12%, 10-1 thru 10-3)
  • Mitt Romney – 24% (29%)
  • Rudy Giuliani – 13% (11%)
  • Fred Thompson – 9% (18%)
  • John McCain – 7% (7%)
  • Ron Paul – 7% (4%)

The new Iowa Poll, conducted over four days last week, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

Mike Huckabee has SURGED in Iowa while Romney and Thompson have declined. Romney who has spent over $7 million in Iowa is now losing in a state he has led for weeks/months.

Watch for the negative ads against Huckabee to accelerate. But, will such ads be effective or timely with the Christmas season starting.

Stay tuned…….

Republican presidential hopeful, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, shakes hands with Louis Copponi after getting the endorsement of the New Hampshire Troopers Association in Concord, N.H., Saturday, Dec. 1, 2007.

Rudy Giuliani received the first EVER endorsement of the New Hampshire Troopers Association today.

Lewis Copponi, the association’s president, said backing Giuliani was an easy decision. “His record in New York is unparalleled among the other candidates,” he said. “His support of law enforcement is long known.”

Giuliani was presented with a trooper fleece vest and hat, and he put on the vest. He teased reporters, who wanted him to try on the hat, but seemed to know it would be on the front page of the next day’s New York tabloids and demurred.

Smart move by the Mayor with the hat. Remember Dukakis and the Tank?

Rudy praised the troopers in yesterday’s Hillary Clinton Campaign HQ hostage crisis in Rochester, New Hampshire.

“They really, I think, showed us an example of when you have to deal with crises, how to do it,” Giuliani said, before reiterating his support for law enforcement and their new role as “first preventers” in the age of terrorism.

Stay tuned……..

Republican presidential hopeful, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks during a meeting with local residents and students, Friday, Nov. 30, 2007, at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“Trouble, oh we got trouble, Right here in River City! With a capital “T”……….

Dick Morris has the RIGHT analysis:

This is not a good time to be Mitt Romney. After almost a year of having the Iowa and New Hampshire airwaves to himself, he is now facing a challenge on the right from Mike Huckabee and Fred Thompson and on the left from Rudy Giuliani.

Mitt Romney has spent over $7 million to win Iowa. Now, he is in a virtual tie with Mike Huckabee who has spent around $400 THOUSAND.

And, the latest Fox News New Hampshire poll has Mitt ahead of Rudy by ten points and McCain by 8. Giuliani has recently gone “on air” with television ads and is within striking distance, particularly if Romney loses Iowa to Mike Huckabee. McCain has been rising and could “surprise” Mitt. Rasmussen has Huckabee rising in New Hampshire.

This just off the Drudge wire: The influential New Hampshire Manchester Union Leader is posed to endorse John McCain tomorrow.

Romney expected early substantial wins in Iowa and New Hampshire to provide him the knock out blow and become the alternative to national poll leader Rudy Giuliani. As the “anyone but Rudy” candidate he would generate financial support and SoCon voters to compete with Giuliani in the larger February 5th Super Duper Tuesday states. Early momentum was Romney’s strategy.

So, goes a “FAILED” strategy.

And, blaming the press won’t help him much either. Neither will these desperate pieces by Romney hagiographers.

Or having Evangelical surrogates personally attacking candidates and thus violating the GOP’s 11 Commandment.

Stay tuned…….
