Before "The Speech"
8:42 AM, Dec 6, 2007 • By MATTHEW CONTINETTI
Before Mitt Romney delivers his address on "Faith in America" at 10:30 this morning, it's worth reading Robert Novak's table-setter. Here's the part of Novak's column that struck me as the most interesting:
As you can see in this poll, Huckabee's polling average in Iowa is currently at around 27 percent, and his trend-line is upward. Romney sank below 30 percent support in early November, and has not recovered yet. Indeed Romney's trend-line in Iowa is downward for now. It's just as possible that it is Romney, not Huckabee, who has "topped out" in Iowa. Of course, no one will know for sure until the caucuses, now less than 30 days away.
