Is how to court the votes of evangelicals (based on his pro-life cred) without appearing to court that group in in any way whatsoever, since that would alienate everyone else. Also, he needs a way to cast certain of his positions to that group that the normally vehemently oppose (like relaxing federal restrictions on banned substances). If he can get them to see that it's a constitutional issue (and that each state can merrily go on banning whatever substances they see fit) then it might calm some voters' fears. <br> <br>Realistically, though, my guess is that the lion's share of evangelicals will support Huckabee (in the primary, at least), since he's a former pastor, pro-life, and not a libertarian like Paul. If Huckabee drops out before Paul, though, a non-insignificant portion of those votes may swing over to Paul.

I agree. He needs to stress that these are State issues a little more often.

No question, though that's a hard pill for people to swallow.

Death_Claw 293 November 07, 2007 09:57AM

I'll agree

I wouldn't assume rationality from the American populace.

Death_Claw 260 November 07, 2007 12:18PM

That's kind of what I'm saying

Lokain 265 November 07, 2007 01:41PM

Certain issues should not be made by states

hopelessdwarf 271 November 08, 2007 12:31PM

It's the lesser of two evils.

Death_Claw 271 November 09, 2007 07:02AM

I dunno
