View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Huckabee/Obama gap continues to narrow

The latest poll from Public Policy Polling shows Mike Huckabee continues to close in on Obama:

2012 Presidential Match-up:

Obama 47%, Huckabee 44% (-3% spread)
Obama 47%, Romney 40% (-7% spread)
Obama 49%, Gingrich 41% (8% spread)
Obama 52%, Palin 38% (-15% spread)

The last poll showed a 6-point gap between the two (48-42); in June it was a 7-point spread (50-43).

If the trend continues, Huckabee might tie or even pass Obama early this Fall.
