Misogyny Is a Winning Formula for Mike Huckabee
Would you be surprised to learn that Mike Huckabee’s weird, disturbing statement that women use birth control because they “can’t control their libido” was wildly popular among the right wing base? No?
The latest survey from Democratic PPP released Wednesday showed the former Arkansas governor surging among Republican voters nationwide in the wake of his head-scratching comment about the female libido.
According to the poll, 16 percent of GOP primary voters said they would prefer to see Huckabee as the party’s presidential nominee in 2016, making him the top Republican in the field. Only a month ago, PPP showed Huckabee polling at 11 percent and trailing both New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) among GOP voters.
