Here’s Where Mike Huckabee’s Supporters Will Go
Neurosurgeon Ben Carson is likely to receive the biggest bump from former supporters of Mike Huckabee. The former Arkansas governor dropped out of the 2016 presidential race Monday night after receiving less than two percent of the vote in Iowa. Huckabee won the Iowa caucuses in 2008.
Overall, 24 percent of his former supporters say Ben Carson is their second choice and 18 percent say Donald Trump is their second choice. Nine percent select Jeb Bush as their second choice and six percent say Marco Rubio is their second pick.
Morning Consult asked 5,456 registered Republican and Republican-leaning independent voters, including 143 Mike Huckabee supporters, for their first and second choice in the Republican presidential primary across four separate national polls conducted in January 2016.
